In an exclusive report, TVNewser said Fox has fired production assistant, Jennifer Locke, after she admitted voting for John McCain.

TVNewser reported:

“Insiders tell us the assistant, identified as Jennifer Locke, was on assignment with a camera crew to cover the entertainment angle of the event. When Sen. John McCain walked by, the assistant said, ‘I voted for you in the primary, you’re going to win.’”

“McCain was overheard saying to her, ‘You’re not supposed to reveal that.’ Locke apparently continued to explain that she is the daughter of a Vietnam veteran.”

“When you work at a place that’s clearly partisan,” adds MSNBC’s Don Abrams, “they should at least make sure that their younger staff get the memo about feigning objectivity.
