Why would Fox News out a Navy Seal?

Sometimes, the world we live in makes no sense.

For some stupid reason, the folks at Fox News outed a Navy Seal who wanted to remain anonymous. The story that they released the man’s name in is here.

If you read the story, there seems to be absolutely no reason to “out” him other than they’re still trying to keep the classified leak story alive against Obama. (Read their article, if you don’t believe me.)

And here’s the story from the AP confirming that the great patriots from Fox News, who spend half their time trying to create evidence of liberal bias elsewhere, were (in fact) the first news agency to release the Navy Seal Chief’s name. (Link.)

Great job, Fox News. You just put a man’s life, and his family’s, in serious danger.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novel Little Man, and the Dixon County War a huge success! It’s gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here), landing smack dab between a Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey book. And don’t forget to check out my newest novel (Sold Out). It’s already gone as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here. And thanks a million to all my friends and fans who peddle my stuff like street pushers.

  1. Comment from my Facebook on this:

    Mike Mahathy: Anything for ratings. Disgusting!

    • My response: It must be. I am really, really disgusted. You would think if there was one news source that wouldn’t “out” a veteran, it would be Fox News.

      Man, I hate the media, and I swear a day doesn’t go by that I don’t try to be different than the vast majority of them out there. I feel like an attorney, who’s not proud to tell people he’s an attorney…

  2. Facebook comment by Devrin Kuipers: Pundits spewing their rhetoric. Can’t stand to listen to any of them. News is not slanted commentary, thus I don’t get my news from them.

  3. Facebook comment by Mike Mahathy: Stan, over the past year I have noticed creeping changes that have accumulated to more than subtle. Roger Ailes said last year he wanted to shed the conservative mouthpiece label, at least somewhat.

    Facebook comment by Stan Mitchell: Aaahhh… Hadn’t considered that. Danah and I only recently got cable, so I’ve been uanble to keep up with them. (Been without cable for about six years because I couldn’t afford it; chasing that American dream, you know how it goes…)

  4. Facebook comment by Mike Mahathy: Well here is another possible twist, which if true, makes Fox News even more sinister. This guy’s theory is FN did it as a political move to help take any good light away from Obama. Who knows.
