The Columbia Journalism Review looks into One America News, the cable network desperate for President Trump’s approval.
“I spoke with more than a dozen former and current employees of OAN, some on the condition of anonymity because they feared reprisal. A few had kind words for the network and for their coworkers, but collectively they described a circus, where ethics are absent, turnover is high, and dissent is met with rage. At the helm, they say, is Robert Herring, a wealthy businessman and kind of mini-Trump, whose near-singular focus seems to be supporting the president and his policies.”
Said one former anchor: “Herring is the network. He is in control of absolutely everything he wants to be, and if someone doesn’t like it they’re fired.”Save to Favorites
