A number of Fox staffers are dreading the possibility of working for Ingraham, who, even among the healthy egos that populate America’s cable newsrooms, has built a reputation as overbearing. According to numerous sources, Ingraham has been, occasionally, a verbally abusive boss, who will not hesitate to scream at employees if something goes awry. Two former employees of her radio show recounted to The Daily Beast separate instances of Ingraham hurling objects at staff members in displeasure. Though Fox declined to address most specific examples of her conduct, the channel issued a blanket denial of such allegations…

Another former employee of the radio show described being targeted with frequent “verbal harassment.” Ingraham, the employee said, would swear and, in “an instance or two,” would throw a phone in anger at individual staffers. Yet another employee recalled Ingraham “screaming to the point of veins popping out, sometimes throwing stuff at staff.” Asked what objects were thrown, that former staffer said: “Whatever was in her hand or closest to her at the moment.”
