AMA 150 – Tied Up In Knots, How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable with Fox News’ Andrea Tantaros
Andrea Tantaros worked as a spokesperson for Massachusetts Governor William Weld, then-Congressman Pat Toomey and former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Thomas Reynolds. She started Andrea Tantaros Media, which provided crisis management and media strategy consulting to Fortune 500 companies and political campaigns.
Tantaros joined Fox News Channel in April 2010 as a political contributor. In 2011, she was named one of the co-hosts of The Five. After only several months airing, The Five consistently beat its competitors on MSNBC and CNN combined and, by 2013, it was the second-most-watched program in all of cable news. Her popularity led to her being named one of the hosts of Outnumbered in 2014.
Andrea is now author of the book Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable, and talked with Jason about the book and the state of affairs between men and women today.
