Bret Baier: FNC's pleasant guy


Just looking at Fox News' Bret Baier, you can tell the kind of person he probably he is. The all-American looking TV news anchor probably wakes up and spends some time with little his kids before reading the New York Times. He's probably sensitive to the concerns of his viewers. He probably played golf in college (while likely wearing a salmon-colored polo and mid-thigh khaki shorts).

Yup, that's about right. Here's the Fox star's daily routine (media diet-wise) as profiled in "The Atlantic":

My morning starts with my kids. I have a 4-year-old and a 15-month-old. I get up and spend time with them before flipping through the newspapers. I get The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and New York Post delivered to my house.


I post actively on Facebook and Twitter. I spend about an hour and a half every day responding to viewers' tweets and Facebook messages. If folks say they have a problem with x, y or z, you'd be surprised how grateful they are when you reply and explain yourself.


For magazine reading, I like Golf magazine. I played golf in college. I love reading items about swing tips or what clubs are the best. I don't watch a ton of TV outside of news and the Golf Channel. My wife watches all those crazy reality shows. Real Housewives of whatever city, the Kardashians and all kinds of stuff. I can usually tolerate it for about five minutes before I go to a different TV.
