According to the latest news reports Fox News’ religion correspondent Lauren Green has a safe career at the network even after she came under fire last week for her controversial interview with author Reza Aslan.
It was for an interview when Aslan appeared on a Fox News webcast to discuss his new book “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,” during the interview Green questioned Aslan why he being the religious scholar wrote a book about the founder of Christianity being a Muslim. Aslan reminded Green several times throughout the interview, that he was a religious scholar who was more than qualified to discuss the subject.
Soon after his interview with Green, Aslan has appeared on other news channels to discuss the Fox News interview and for this reason his book reached the top spot on Amazon on Monday. “Zealot” is also inactive in the number two spot on the New York Times best seller list in the combined print and E-book nonfiction category.
Viewers may have been shocked by Green’s series of questions during the interview, but all viewers might have been unfamiliar with Green as a Fox News host as she’s not one of the network’s regular faces.
A reporter from the daily newspaper wrote a piece on Green’s career track to Fox News religion correspondent. Green was one of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes’ first recruited for the job, and has slowly been moved around and seemingly demoted since the network has grown in fame.
According to a news reporter, “Fox News insiders, though, say that since Green has been working for Fox so long and she is unlikely to go anywhere, even after this latest mortification.” A source told the reporter, “She is one of the originals, and Roger prides himself on loyalty. She could murder somebody, but Roger being Roger, he would stand by her till the end.”
