CNN Reporter Oliver Darcy called into question the label given to Sara Carter of Fox News during her recent appearance on Martha MacCallum’s program.
According to Darcy, Carter was “characterized” as an “investigative reporter” by MacCallum, and he cited an article by Mediaite to challenge such a title given to her.
Darcy wrote, “Sara Carter, who normally only appears on Fox opinion shows, is a guest on @marthamaccallum’s ~straight news~ program tonight talking about ex-Overstock CEO’s claims. MacCallum characterized Carter as an ‘investigative reporter.'”
He then tweeted an excerpt from a Mediaite article and said, “@aidnmclaughlin reported in March that Carter had been ‘barred from the news side of Fox” and that network executives had asked Hannity to stop calling her an ‘investigative reporters.'”
Upon seeing his tweet, Fox News contributor, Katie Pavlich came to Carter’s defense and responded to Darcy with a reality check as she stated: [Sara Carter] has repeatedly reported from dangerous war zones in the Middle East.”
“She’s reported from El Salvador on current immigration crisis. She’s reported on cartels from Mexico (most dangerous country in the world for reporters). Pretty ‘real reporter’ like and newsie,” she declared. See Below

Momnets later, Sara Carter chimed in with a response of her own.
She said, “[Katie Pavlich], Thank you. [Oliver Darcy], if you want a real story come me with me next year to Mexico where you can report much more than just rumor, lies and gossip.”
“I’m serious ( : it’s an open invitation,” Carter concluded.

Sara, who amongst other things spent 3 years reporting from the frontlines of the war zones in the Middle East and has received numerous awards, is a thousand times the reporter you are, Ollie

Your network just hired a guy who the OIG said lied under oath multiple times and is under a criminal referral, but Sara Carter is the one giving a black eye to journalism.
