Executive Vice President, Prime Time Programming
“I feel very good with Tucker and Laura. I think Sean will eventually see the wisdom in this clue, but even this morning he was still looking for examples of fraud.”
— A November 6, 2020 text message to Ron Mitchell, a Fox executive.
Meade Cooper, a production assistant on the 1996 launch of Fox News, is executive vice president of primetime programming for the network. At the time of the election and its aftermath, she oversaw shows for some of Fox’s biggest stars, including Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham, as well as Jeanine Pirro and Mark Levin. In her deposition before Dominion’s lawyers, she noted that while she is in charge of these shows, “very rarely is an actual script in charge of me.”
