Fox hires alleged bin Laden shooter

Mar 16, 2015

Fox News has just found a new contributor in Rob O’Neill--and if that name sounds familiar, it's because he's the former Navy SEAL credited by some with firing the shots that killed Osama bin Laden. O'Neill will be offering analysis on the military beat, of course.

"Happy to join the team!!" O'Neill tweets.

Fellow contributor Michelle Fields greets him, "Congrats to @mchooyah on joining the Fox News team! "

Gerry Callahan with Boston Herald jokes, "Finally a real job. Congrats @mchooyah."

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
