Reality Winner, the former National Security Agency contractor accused of leaking a classified report, apparently complained to her bosses that Fox News was playing in her office – suggesting Al Jazeera would have been a more appropriate choice.
The detail emerged in newly released transcripts filed in court of Winner’s interview with the FBI. The documents contain a host of new claims from the accused leaker, including that she snuck the document out of a secure NSA facility by folding it and putting it in her pantyhose.
The transcripts offer additional insight into both her political leanings and media preferences.
“I’ve filed formal complaints about them having Fox News on,” she told FBI agents. “… Uh, at least, for God’s sake put Al Jazeera on, or a slideshow with people’s pets. I’ve tried everything to get that changed.”
Politico first reported on the transcripts filed by prosecutors Wednesday.
