Foxy lady

We mentioned the other day former Little Rock newswoman Susan Roesgen's partial meltdown in the face of antagonistic teabaggers whiile covering the tax protest in Chicago for CNN. She made unkind references to Fox News, which heavily promoted the event around the country.

Roesgen got worked over on the Daily Show last night. And news quickly reached Gawker, too, about a bit of Roesgen's past.

Roesgen got snippy with a crazy interviewee while trying to cover the tea partiers, and the crowd turned on her. "I think you get the general tenor of this," she said. "It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox."

Back in 2005, though, according to a Fox News source, Roesgen really wanted to work for that right-wing conservative network. She sent a tape of her on-air work to Fox's then-programming chief Kevin Magee in January 2005, and followed up with another reel to Magee's successor Bill Shine in September 2005. Needless to say, she didn't get the gig.
