Bill Sammon Biography
He graduated from Saint Ignatius High School, in Cleveland, Ohio, and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Bill previously worked as White House correspondent for the Washington Times and the Washington Examiner before joining Fox News in August 2008.
Bill has written four New York Times bestsellers: At Any Cost: How Al Gore Tried to Steal the Election; Fighting Back: The War on Terrorism From Inside the White House; Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, Media Bias and the Bush Haters; and Strategery: How George W. Bush Is Defeating Terrorists, Outwitting Democrats, and Confounding the Mainstream Media. The following books have been largely derided as overly favorable to President George W. Bush and his administration.
James Wolcott listed Strategery among a group of books on George W. Bush written by “faithful holdouts in Bush’s pep squad. James Wolcott is a Vanity Fair critic. They are happy to have endowed him with superpowers” by writing “hagiography mash notes whose toothy gleam of triumphalism was almost blinding.” David Weigel has sarcastically referred to these books as “scathing critiques of presidential power.”
David Weigel is a reporter. The American Prospect wrote that Sammon “wrote an astonishing four books on the topic of Bush’s super-awesomeness.” Bill is a frequent guest on FoxNews shows like Special Report with Brit Hume, Fox News Sunday, and Hannity & Colmes. On September 13, 2007, Bill appeared on Special Report and argued that Theodore Olson should be confirmed as Attorney General. On February 27, 2009, he was promoted to vice president of Fox News and Washington managing editor, a position once held by Brit Hume.

Bill Sammon Fox News Memos
The Media watchdog group Media Matters for America published memos allegedly written by Sammon while he was Washington managing editor at Fox News where he reminded recipients not to refer to the public option proposal in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by name, but instead use terms like “government-run health insurance” or to use various qualifiers. The publication of the memos received attention from media observers.
Another leaked memo showed Bill gave orders for Fox to cast then-Senator Obama as a socialist. “Sammon repeatedly said Obama’s remarks were “tantamount to socialism”, on-air and in a FoxNews.com column, while sending around a memo noting “Obama’s references to socialism, liberalism, Marxism and Marxists” in Dreams From My Father.”Some questions asked by Fox journalists were allegedly scripted by Sammon. Sammon later explained the incident as a product of his “rather mischievous speculation about whether Barack Obama really advocated socialism, a premise that privately I found rather far-fetched.”
