Traitors, Broadcasters and Commentary

I thought FOX’s Mr. Carlson was better than this. 

Apparently, he’s allowing his FOX show commentary to be used on RT, Russian Today, the Russian state TV network, to justify Putin's invasion of Ukraine.  

If so, in some ways it is remarkably similar to past autocratic-loving, non-democratic, traitorous, broadcasters like Tokyo Rose or Axis Sally who were used to justify war against America and our allies during WWII. Except, they were forced to do their radio work against their country. It’s clear that Mr. Carlson favors autocrats such as Mr. Putin over democratically elected leaders such as Mr. Biden and Mr. Zelenskiy.

Tokyo Rose, a.k.a. Iva Toguri D'Aquino

"During (WWII), Tokyo Rose was not any one individual, but rather a group of largely unassociated women working for the same propagandist effort throughout the Japanese Empire. ... Toguri was accused of being the "real" Tokyo Rose, arrested, tried, and became the seventh person in U.S. history to be convicted of treason."

Axis Sally, a.k.a. Mildred Gillars

“American Traitor: The Trial of Axis Sally” is the fact-based story of Mildred Gillars, an aspiring American actress who was tried in 1949 on eight counts of treason for her role as a radio propagandist for Nazi Germany during World War II.”
