Fox News Adds Former U.S. Navy Seal Rob O’Neill as Contributor

O'Neill was profiled in a FNC documentary last year entitled, "The Man Who Killed Usama Bin Laden."

Fox News has hired former U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill as a contributor, announced the network’s chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes.

“Rob O’Neill is an American hero who dedicated his life to serving our country and protecting our freedoms,” said Ailes in the announcement. “It’s incredibly rare to have someone in a television contributor role with his leadership experience and expertise at the fighting unit level. His military insight will be a major asset to the network and we are honored to have him.”

O’Neill, who is said to have fired the fatal shots to Usama Bin Laden, will offer military expertise and analysis to Fox News’ daytime and primetime programs. He is FNC’s second contributor hire in recent days with Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., being brought on board last week.
