Fox News hires Steve Doocy’s son as ‘a general assignment reporter.’

doocy123Last year, Peter Doocy, the son of Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy, grabbed his 15 minutes of fame when asked Sen. John McCain on MSNBC’s Hardball if then-Sen. Hillary Clinton was “hitting the sauce.” The young Doocy followed it up with an appearance on Fox and Friends and “reporting” at the Democratic National Convention that included twittering with the Denver Broncos cheerleaders. Now, TVNewser reports that Doocy has been hired as “a general assignment reporter” for Fox News. Doocy previously filed reports for the Fox News-affiliated student website Palestra and served as an intern on his father’s show in 2004.
