Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes resign from Fox News, protesting ‘irresponsible’ voices like Tucker Carlson
Every month or so, while chatting with sources at Fox News, I express my surprise that Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes are still working for the network. The two men were fact-based conservative thinkers who refused to surrender to Donald Trump. Unfortunately, Fox viewers rarely hear from them. This year they were so booked by network manufacturers that their contracts were likened to golden cuffs.
A rare inside view of Fox
In Sunday night’s post on The Dispatch, two commentators said the “Patriot Purge” web series “creates an alternate history of January 6, contradicted not only by common sense.” , not only by the testimony and testimony in the files of many of the participants. , but by the reporting of Fox News itself.”
Hayes and Goldberg praise the “news side” (which is constantly shrinking at Fox) but acknowledge that the opinion side has radicalized. “The release of ‘Patriot Purge’ is not an isolated incident,” they wrote, “it is merely the most severe example of an age-old trend.” So they went out. “We do not regret our decision,” they concluded, “even if we find it regrettably necessary.”
