“for God’s sake put Al Jazeera on”
The alleged NSA leaker whose real name is ‘Reality Winner’ was back in the news this week when certain details of her initial interview with the FBI were shared with the press.
When she was working for the NSA, she didn’t like the fact that FOX News was played on the office TVs.

Alleged leaker Reality Winner griped about Fox News on her office TVs, wanted Al Jazeera
Reality Winner, the former National Security Agency contractor accused of leaking a classified report, apparently complained to her bosses that Fox News was playing in her office – suggesting Al Jazeera would have been a more appropriate choice.
The detail emerged in newly released transcripts filed in court of Winner’s interview with the FBI. The documents contain a host of new claims from the accused leaker, including that she snuck the document out of a secure NSA facility by folding it and putting it in her pantyhose.
The transcripts offer additional insight into both her political leanings and media preferences.
“I’ve filed formal complaints about them having Fox News on,” she told FBI agents. “… Uh, at least, for God’s sake put Al Jazeera on, or a slideshow with people’s pets. I’ve tried everything to get that changed.”
Greg Gutfeld and the rest of the panel on The Five had a good time talking about that this week:
We also learned that she sneaked documents out of her office by hiding them in her pantyhose. And that she doesn’t hold the United States in very high regard.

Accused NSA leaker called America ‘the worst thing to happen on the planet’
Reality Winner, 25, told FBI agents she was disappointed in her job as a government contractor, court records show.
“Yeah, I screwed up royally,” Winner, told the agents in a transcript that makes public the details of her confession, which prosecutors have alluded to in prior court hearings.
Prosecutors are asking a federal judge to keep the former Air Force translator jailed until her trial. In a court filing Wednesday, prosecutors attached a 77-page transcript of Winner’s interview with FBI agents before her arrest in June.
In their latest filing Wednesday, prosecutors also included a partial transcript of a Facebook chat between Winner and her sister in February.
“Look, I only say I hate America like 3 times a day,” Winner wrote. “I’m no radical. It’s mostly just about Americans obsession with air conditioning.”
Her sister asked: “But you don’t actually hate America, right?”
Winner replied: “I mean yeah I do it’s literally the worst thing to happen on the planet. We invented capitalism the downfall of the environment.”
How many other Reality Winners are out there? It’s scary to think about it.
