Executive vice president, prime-time programming
“I feel really good about Tucker and Laura. I think Sean will see the wisdom of this track eventually, but even this morning he was still looking for examples of fraud.”
— A Nov. 6, 2020, text message to Ron Mitchell, a Fox executive.
Meade Cooper, a production assistant at Fox News’s 1996 launch, is an executive vice president for the network’s prime time programming. At the time of the election and its aftermath, she oversaw the shows of 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 with Dominion’s lawyers, she noted that while she is in charge of these shows, “Very rarely is an actual script run by me.”
