An former spokesperson for two-time Attorney General Bill Barr has taken a new editorial position with Fox News, the network announced in a media release on Thursday.
According to the release, Kerri Kupec was named the network’s hottest Washington editor, a job she will start on May 10. She will report to Doug Rohrbeck, who was also promoted to function as Senior Vice President of all D.C. News.
Kupec became the Justice Department’s main spokesperson at Dec. 2018 if she substituted Sarah Isgur Flores as the director of the DOJ Office of Public Affairs. She was also a part of former President Donald Trump’s 2016 transition team and assisted the Office of White House Counsel in helping affirm U.S. Supreme Court nominees, including the continuing confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Kupec graduated from the Liberty University School of Law, a personal evangelical Christian institute founded by Jerry Falwell Sr., at 2011. She then went on to function as legal counsel and communications director at the Alliance Defending Freedom, among the most influential conservative Christian legal nonprofits from the nation. The Arizona-based team has helped lawmakers with efforts aimed at curtailing LGBTQ rights, limiting homosexual marriage, and authoring anti-transgender laws. The organization also represented Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips at the U.S. Supreme Court at which he struggled with the right to refuse to sell a wedding cake into a homosexual couple because of his religious beliefs.
“They’ll continue to progress our powerful news performance and dedication to showcasing diverse viewpoints across the network”
She subsequently left that”direction” function to scale back to exactly what the New York Times referred to as”a much more traditional entry-level role for government officials who pursue television careers.”
