New Yorkers Ignore ‘Fox And Friends’ Host Asking About Texting While Walking

No, thanks.

That was the collective response on Monday from several New Yorkers who couldn’t be bothered to talk to “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocey.

Doocey was conducting so-called “man on the street” interviews with New Yorkers who were texting while walking in a crosswalk, as the city mulls a bill that would impose fines for the practice.

Turns out no one wanted to take time out of their busy morning to talk to Fox News.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
