Dan Cooper, who helped launch Fox News as managing editor in 1996, said that a brain room carried out counter intelligence on the channels enemies from its New York headquarters. He was threatened after it found out he spoke to a reporter, he claimed. Another former senior executive said the channel ran a spying network on staff, reading their emails and making them feel they were being watched. The channel, which has come under pressure amid allegations that outlets owned by Mr Murdoch might have attempted to hack the voicemail messages of

Black Ops? Eric Holder will not be happy about that.....
The global communists and their little toadies in the state run “media” are pulling out all of the stops in an attempt to bring down FOX. FOX has made it difficult for the communists to brainwash the unwashed masses. The commies have got to get rid of FOX. This is nothing but political horsesh!t and the ignorant public is eating it up.
How to make the unbelievable believable 101.
Outrageous. A scandal. Bet he had 300 FBI files of private individuals too. Oh wait. Never mind the last part. We were told that was no big deal.
Mr Cooper said he was willing to consider the possibility that Mr Brock named him, but added: I assume he operates under journalistic ethics and protected a confidential source. Brock told me at the time that Ailes told him he would never work again if he wrote the article.
Mr Brock now runs Media Matters, a Left-leaning American media watchdog. A spokesman for the group said: He declines to comment.
Soros sponsored goons strike again.
FOX has a minority majority organization while the rest of the US media are Lilly white? Good for them. The Just-Us brothers should be happy.
You can bet that Holder has many files on every employee at Fox. If they can do it, so can Fox.
Soros at it again. ;-)
A Fox News spokesman said: Each of these allegations is completely false. Dan Cooper was terminated six weeks after the launch of the Fox News Channel in 1996 and has peddled these lies for the past 15 years.
The United States of America really, truly is being attacked, all out, by our internal and external enemies. And right now these enemies of America are all using each other as temporary 'allies' to get the job done. So far, I'd say they're succeeding pretty well. So many American's eyes are off the ball while we sink like a stone. The females are too busy trying to keep up with, or take down, the males in corporate America, the younger males are too busy wondering if their exposed boxer shorts and smelly asses are lookin' good, the young females can't seem to find clothing and styles slutty enough to out do last years slutty look, but they keep on trying anyway. And THEY are the future of the United States of America, a country they barely even know about. They think the Founders put together a place where the stupider, sluttier and creepier you look and act, the better off you're supposed to be. And it is all about the narcissistic individual, you know. Or at least that's what the public, Leftist propaganda schools keep turning out.
Well, let’s see here.
A ‘brain room’ that runs ‘counterintelligence’ against competitors? Sounds like a high-level staff meeting on how to deal with the competition. Y’know the way every corporation and large business pretty much does when mapping out their long-term strategy.
Reading employee emails? Um, Danny boy *does* understand that your company email account is not your personal email account, and your employer has every right to screen them for unprofessional behavior or “moonlighting”. I once worked at a company where EVERY email was ‘secretly’ copied and forwarded to the company president.
Not seeing anything here that suggests anything other than everyday corporate America. Not defending the people involved in the phone hacking scandal mess, but this ‘former exec’ sounds like he’s full of beans.
Gosh, next thing you know we’ll hear Murdoch smuggled machine-guns to MS-17 & the Zetas, you know..? How silly..!
Wow the lefty designed and implemented the high security unit..but it’s RM’s fault. HUMMMMM
Mr Murdoch had better turn over the company to his son. He is trying to have it all, Big Name, Big money, but hands off. This is what happens when you have that kind of management style.
800 files in the Clinton bordello that mysterious appeared.
Dan Cooper? Wasn’t he the guy...
who hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft in the airspace between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, USA on November 24, 1971. He extorted $200,000 in ransom and parachuted to an uncertain fate?
“Not seeing anything here that suggests anything other than everyday corporate America. Not defending the people involved in the phone hacking scandal mess, but this former exec sounds like hes full of beans.”
That’s my take on it too.
I’ve built systems for a fortune 500 company to watch and analyze the news ... and determine relationships between every person and organization mentioned in the story.
This allowed us to understand ‘who’ we were talking to in meetings... and possibly their ultimate intentions
It’s only prudent for any company with any serious worth
D. B. Cooper?
I think there’s probably some kind of conflict not known to us that has got Mr Former Exec into the vengeful mode.
That said, probably every tabloid in the UK was doing the same thing. Tabloid journalism in the US is now restricted to a couple of supermarket papers that talk about space aliens, but in Europe it’s still a mixture of celebrities (photographed at awful moments by paparazzi with long lenses), royals (normally treated well) and gruesome true crime stories supplemented by...inside information, mostly obtained by dubious means.
So when they wring their hands at Murdoch, they’re being disingenous at best and ravingly corrupt liars at worst. He should do a counterattack. Go to some of the other papers and find out how they got their info...
I agree there should be a counterattack but I doubt Murdoch is worried about these clowns.
This is related to the Media Matters War on fox news. Fox news struck back. Now Media Matters is coming in from the back door with a bum rush. It’s typical liberal strategy. All of the organizations are being engaged here in this fight. For the Liberal Media, it’s an existential battle to bring fox news down. Because they cannot tolerate an alternative voice.
What’s wrong with counter-intel vs. competitors. Think Volkswagen and Toyota don’t do it?
Investigative reporting equates to black ops to the lame stream media when not asking a lib what his most enchanting moment was while running the the nation into the ground.
Most of the “traditional” media is too stupid, lazy and bias to report on anything other than “dancing with the stars” or the political talking points of their political persuasion. Of course CNN, the saddam regime unofficial spokes person that suppressed the MURDER of their local hires in Iraq as to not be kicked out and remain there as the exclusive US news firm finds this scandal about their competitor a major story worth constant coverage and debate. lol
Thanks Nachum. Wow, imagine, a news organization that snoops into other people’s business. If this is allowed to continue, we’ll eventually have the private lives of politicians and other celebrities plastered on the lurid covers of magazines available on every supermarket checkstand.
