I've seen a few of these pop up from time to time, thought I'd add in my own experiences. I was actually very reluctant to do this AMA, because a few folks I've talked to who have done the same thing ... say they got death threats and other nasty messages. Hence the burner account.
But I don't want the opinions of a few to prevent me from sharing my experiences at FNC. I left last year, after a few years in the newsroom. I worked on the "editorial" side - dayside, specifically - not for any of the prime-time shows (like O'Reilly and Hannity) so I can only speak more generally about them and their relationship to the daytime news operation.
I'll try to answer any questions you may have about the culture, operation and general day-to-day happenings at 1211 Avenue of the Americas. I'm not here to debate politics, as I'm sure the general assumptions about FNC are clear, but my personal beliefs don't really align with the stereotypical Fox viewer.
Mods can contact me for proof, and I will provide it.
Until then - ask away - and be gentle.
12p Edit: have to step away from the computer for a little while. I'll return around 1:30p to answer some more questions!
I'm back. Front page: about what I expected. I'm trying to answer questions as quickly as possible. You may have noticed I've been trying to keep up, even when away. Thanks all for your patience.
UPDATE 3:30p. Have to go off keyboard for a while. Will try to answer some more questions tonight. Thanks for all the thought-inspiring questions, everybody!
UPDATE 5:15p: Thanks all. I hope I answered most of your lingering questions. Keep an open mind, question everything, and America rocks. I'm out.
