Marty Golingan, a producer at the channel since 2016, told The New York Times that OAN has changed during his time from a neutral cable news network to one completely devoted to Donald Trump during his presidency -- he alleges he was reprimanded him for referring to the president as "President Biden." He also said he feared his work may have inspired the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. Golingan recalled seeing a photo of someone in the Capitol mob holding a flag emblazoned with the OAN logo. “I was like, OK, that’s not good,” he said. “That’s what happens when people listen to us.” Golingan also said that other staffers are concerned with OAN's pro-Trump slant. “The majority of people did not believe the voter fraud claims being run on the air,” he said. Shortly after the interview was published, Golingan said he was fired. “I’ve given up my journalistic integrity already, and to be fired, that would make me feel good,” he said. “I would wear it like a badge of honor.” Charles Herring, the president of Herring Networks, the company that owns OAN, defended the cable news network to The Times, saying: “A review process with multiple checks is in place to ensure that news reporting meets the company’s journalist standards. And, yes, we’ve had our fair share of mistakes, but we do our best to keep them to a minimum and learn from our missteps.” He also said OAN staff White House reporters are allowed to use "President Biden" to refer to the president.
