Should Members Of The Media Be Prosecuted For Publishing Leaked Information?— Brian Kilmeade (@kilmeade) August 7, 2017
Co-host Steve Doocy: Ambassador, on the front page of FoxNews.com right now there is a story that apparently the intel community has picked up. Anti-ship cruise missiles were being loaded onto a patrol boat or patrol boats in North Korea. What can you tell us about that?Haley: I can’t. I can’t talk about anything that’s classified and if that’s in the newspaper, that’s a shame.Doocy: You have no reason to believe that’s not accurate, though?Haley: I have no reason to comment.Co-host Ainsley Earhardt: The fact that it shouldn’t be in the newspaper — is that another leak, I guess?Haley: It’s one of these things — I don’t know what’s going on, but I will tell you it’s incredibly dangerous when things get out into the press like that. You’re not only just getting a scoop on something, you’re playing with people’s lives.Earhardt: Yes.Haley: And this has got to stop. Whatever the leaks are coming from, if somebody thinks they’re getting power or fame from it, all you’re doing is putting Americans in danger.Doocy: Sure, and I understand that, but at the same time is the United States intel community saying, “Hey, Mr. Kim, we’re watching you. We just saw you put those things on the boat”?Haley: Listen, don’t think that he’s not aware and we’re not aware of everything that’s happening at every given moment.
The President has the power to declassify intel but I don't think that's ever happened via Fox & Friends before. America 2017.— Ben Rhodes (@brhodes) August 8, 2017
