Despicable, to say the least.

I and others on the left have long seen Fox News as an organ of political propaganda for the right wing.  Were I so inclined, I could research this and give you chapter and verse, with multiple items to prove their long history of lies.

But why do that, now that I've proof that the bastards have no sense of patriotism or loyalty at all?

I'm sure by now, you've all heard about the Navy Seal that's broken the code of silence and written a book about that raid, and how he has tried to protect his identity by using a pseudonym.

What you may not have noticed is that Fox News has revealed his real name!  Yes, you heard that right - the news outlet which excoriated Gawker's John Cook for trying to uncover the identity of a CIA agent involved in the raid, has itself done the same thing.  Only they didn't "try", they actually did it!

Fox News posted this in their article in 2011:

“You seem to have not noticed that they took great pains to make sure his face wasn't in the shot and he was never identified by name,” Myrna Minkoff wrote, when another commenter challenged her criticism of the Gawker post. 
Other commenters chimed in.  
“Sure it'll put him, his friends, and his family in danger regardless of whether or not he's actually the guy, but it'll generate some pageviews and advertiser revenue, and that's the IMPORTANT thing, right?” wrote someone using the name “dgoat.” 
“You should still be ashamed of yourselves.”

Yeah, Fox, you should!
