Fox News Fires Producer Who Chyroned Michelle Obama Barack’s “Baby Mama”

Fox News has fired Jessica Herzberg, the freelance producer responsible for the “Obama’s baby mama” chyron from June, according to Chickaboomer.

In June, during a segment on Fox News’ “America’s Election HQ,” a chyron read: “Outraged Liberals: Stop Picking On Obama’s Baby Mama!”

At the time, Fox News’ Senior Vice President of Programming, Bill Shine, acknowledged Herzberg’s poor judgment, saying, “A producer on the program exercised poor judgment in using this chyron during the segment.”

Herzberg has reportedly moved on to CNBC.
