Well, at least she’s well versed in propaganda.

The State Department on Thursday announced that a former Fox News reporter would lead its agency in charge of efforts to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.

Lea Gabrielle will become the special envoy and coordinator of the Global Engagement Center, State Department deputy spokesperson Robert Palladino announced during the department press briefing.

“Lea will provide the permanent leadership we have needed to bolster the Global Engagement Center’s operations. And she will begin her duties on Monday. Lea is a former CIA-trained human intelligence operations officer, defense foreign liaison officer, United States Navy program director, Navy FA-18/C fighter pilot, and national television news correspondent and anchor at two different networks,” Palladino said.

CNN reported in September that Gabrielle was a top contender for the job. Gabrielle could not be immediately reached for comment.

I take some solace in the fact that Gabrielle worked for Shep Smith who I consider to be the lone voice of journalistic integrity at Fox News. 

However, the idea of anybody from Fox News being in charge of a counter-propaganda effort for the State Department is laughable on its face.

    It’s like “Fox News” being allowed into the chicken coop. It’s probably not a good idea.

    Her model pose for the photo does not ad credibility, especially since she was stupid enough to work for FOX.

      “On February 7 2019 it was announced she would head up the U.S. Department of State’s Global Engagement Center, tasked with countering propaganda from foreign actors such as Russia, China, North Korea, and ISIS.”

    What’s will her Ann Coulter prostitute pose? Pan out – she’s undoubtedly wearing a miro skirt. Jesus saves the white men who tap that behind their wives’ back.

    ““Brett Kavanaugh has declared war on Roe, and Susan Collins is the one who made it possible,” Demand Justice director Brian Fallon said. “Even as it was obvious to everyone else that Kavanaugh was a partisan warrior committed to rolling back abortion rights, Collins defended her vote for him by promising that he would follow Supreme Court precedent. It only took four months for Kavanaugh to prove Collins’ promises were a sham.”

    “The threats, the blackmail, that’s their business model,” “for 40 years-
    “used the phrase “war of blackmail” to describe the AMI empire’s ethos.

    “AMI’s strong-arm tactics aren’t limited to celebrities and public figures; it sics high-paid lawyers on journalists who try to shine a light on its practices.

    Ronan Farrow tweeted Thursday night that he and another prominent journalist who was reporting on AMI’s cozy relationship with Trump last year “fielded similar ‘stop digging or we’ll ruin you’ blackmail efforts from AMI.”

      ‘“Well, Donald has long had other people investigated to try and get them to back off. He did it to me,” Johnston replied. “And the whole model here is one of, as we’ve been discussing, extortion — of suppressing news.”

      “A lot of things I’ve written about Donald Trump in my biography, ‘The Making of Donald Trump,’ they’re not in the news for reasons that in some cases have to do with his threatening news organizations if they touched those stories, even though they’re in the public record,”’

    And good natured with the white jackets, who I see some on twitter are calling the straight jackets. AOC had a rare bad night, looking not spirited, warm and original as usual but sullen, teenaged and at a loss. 2.

    “inappropriate, demeaning and divisive.”
