BusinessWeek: Describe your typical day. Charlie Gasparino: If I’m up till, like, 9 p.m. writing, and then I go out for dinner, I might [get up] late. One of the good things about Fox is, I do later hits. But [writing the book] was kind of grueling; they didn’t exactly give me time off. I had to perform. So I used to get up early, like 6, 7 a.m. For breakfast, I either do oatmeal with fruit, or I do a protein shake. BW: You seem rather spirited in your use of Twitter. Can you describe your philosophy? CG: You know, I don’t like it when they get really personal. I never throw the first punch. My wife is trying to get me not to do that any more—not to respond to the jerks. I don’t like snarky. I got a little bit of a temper. Barring calling people’s mothers out, I think there’s a decorum you have to follow. But I’m not a punching bag. [BusinessWeek]
