Michelle Joann Fields (born January 10, 1988) is an American libertarian political journalist and a Fox News Contributor. Upon graduating from Pepperdine University in 2011, she gained attention after having a confrontation with actor Matt Damon over teacher tenure reform.[1] After the altercation, Fields was hired as a reporter at The Daily Caller.

Early life

She studied political science at Pepperdine University and served as the president of the Pepperdine chapter of Students For Liberty.[3]

Journalism career

Fields films and edits her videos in a citizen journalism style. She credits the internet for launching her career and believes that the popularity of her videos is due to her style of reporting. In an interview with C-SPAN in 2011 she said that the use of the internet has empowered people so much that now "one voice can be just as powerful as the New York Times."[2]

In 2011 Fields was interviewed by Brian Lamb on the C-SPAN Sunday night show Q&A about her reporting style.[2] Fields has appeared on CNBC, Sky News, Fox News, Hannity, The O'Reilly Factor, Fox and Friends First, Your World with Neil Cavuto, America's Newsroom, Fox and Friends, America Live with Megyn Kelly, Stossel, Red Millennial, and Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld.
