She was an investigative and international affairs/war journalist for Fox News Digital for over fourteen years where she focused on warfare, terrorism, and crimes against humanity. Hollie also saw an unfathomably important part of US History: America hastily withdrawing troops out of Afghanistan. Hollie McKay went behind the enemy lines, to live amongst them, and see the culture and changes that came as the Taliban rapidly took over the country. Hollie talks me through daily life there, the unstable infrastructure, blown up roads, no water, and many more hardships, but she also brings up some interesting points that the US Media has greatly exaggerated. Hollie has worked on the frontlines of several major war zones and covered humanitarian and diplomatic crises in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Burma, Russia, Africa, Latin America, and other areas.
