Sara Carter’s Marriage to Martin Bailey
Sara Carter and Martin Bailey married on October 22, 2010. According to Bailey’s Facebook page, he made his relationship “social media official” on June 23, 2010.
Bailey worked for the United States Army and in 2011, while he was deployed in Afghanistan, was blinded during battle.
A grenade exploded above his head during a firefight. Consequently, he cannot perceive light or shapes, just a “velvety blackness—a tunnel with sounds and voices” surrounding him.
Bailey returned home from rehabilitation in Northern California, and despite his blindness, he (with the help of a friend and his brother) constructed a bedroom, bathroom, and also a playroom for their children.
Carter and Bailey have two children together, a daughter and a son. Their daughter Analiese is nick-named “Demando Commando” and their son’s name is Benjamin.
Currently, Carter lives with her family in Washington, D.C.

Carter has achieved a lot in her career on the frontlines of world news. She has appeared on several national news and radio shows while also making guest appearances on news networks like BBC International, Fox, C-Span, and CNN.

Sara Carter Was in the News for a Hacking Incident
On January 22, 2018, both Carter and Sheriff David Clarke’s Twitter accounts were hacked by Turkish Nationalists. The now-deleted tweet after the account was hacked read, “Your account is hacked by the Turkish cyber army AYYILDIZ TIM! Your DM correspondence has been captured and interesting information has been reached!
Turks are everywhere.” Hackers changed Carter’s cover photo to a pro-Turkish photo.
Barred from Fox News Stories?
In March 2019, Mediaite reported that Fox News executives had banned Sara Carter from their hard news programming. Apparently, Carter’s unvetted reporting falls short of the network’s editorial guidelines.
Nonetheless, Sean Hannity continues to introduce Carter as an “investigative reporter” during her frequent appearances on The Sean Hannity Show.
