MRC-Fox News Revolving Door Watch
Topic: Media Research Center

There are more names to add to the list of former Media Research Center staffers who now work for Fox News -- bringing the total to at least nine.

Alexa Moutevelis left the MRC at the end of 2021, and she wrote her first article for Fox News in March 2022. Her most recent article was in June, so it's unclear if she's still working there, though her Fox News bio suggests she still does through the lack of any past tense. It doesn't mention her MRC stint, however, instead vaguely claiming that she has "previous experience covering politics, entertainment and culture."

Ken Shepherd had a bigger gap. The former NewsBusters managing editor left the MRC in April 2016, then worked for the conservative Washington Times. He joined Fox News in September 2022, his Fox News bio does admit his NewsBusters work but doesn't note that it was for a partisan right-wing organization.

Since for some reason the MRC doesn't like to tout how many of its former employees now work for a major right-wing "news" organization it aggressively defends, we typically have to stumble across them before we know. While it seems that neither Fox News nor the MRC want to talk about this robust pipeline, one has to assume that the MRC is internally proud of this.
