Peter Doocy, born July 21, 1987, is an American journalist who is a White House correspondent for the controversial news media outlet, Fox News. He is the son of Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy. Doocy began as a general assignment reporter for Fox News in New York City in 2009. He has covered a variety of stories that include former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant surgery in March 2012, the floods in the Midwest in 2011, Hurricane Sandy, and the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. He also reported on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
After a White House East Room press conference focused on the January 2022 economic decline, a departing Doocy inquired, “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” President Joe Biden responded, “It’s a great asset,” muttering to himself, “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” Doocy reported that Biden called him later that day to “clear the air” but did not apologize for his characterization.
