However, insiders at Fox are reportedly fuming from the of McEnany’s hiring.

“It’s truly disgusting they fired hard-working journalists who did care about facts and news reporting only to turn around and hire a mini-Goebbels whose incessant lies from the White House helped incite an insurrection on our democracy that got five people killed, including a police officer,” a Fox News insider told The Daily Beast. “Post- Fox is quickly becoming a very scary place and quite dangerous for our democracy.

One Fox staffer called her employment “upsetting,” while another groaned: “It bothers me in that it is basically a slap in the face to the hardworking journalists that value real news and facts. But it also doesn’t surprise me because they have shown that they don’t give a damn about facts and real news.”
