The most anti-Trump host on Fox News, Chris Wallace, has announced that he’s leaving the top-rated cable news network. The unlikeable host made the surprise announcement during his Fox News Sunday show.
“After 18 years, I have decided to leave Fox,” he told his viewers. “I wanna try something new to go beyond politics,” the Fox News Sunday morning host said.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who’s watched Wallace in action that he will be moving to fake news CNN where he will become an anchor for CNN+, a new streaming service that will debut next year.
Wallace isn’t the first anti-Trump Fox News host to jump ship. Last month, we wrote about two RINO contributors who left FOX News over objections to Tucker Carlson’s incredible report that exposed the truth about what happened at the Capitol on January 6th.
Last month, a DC Judge held the District of Columbia’s corrections director and jail warden in contempt of court after lamenting the treatment of January 6th political prisoners. “It’s clear to me the civil rights of the defendant were violated by the D.C. Department of Corrections,” US District Judge Roy Lamberth said. “I don’t know if it’s because he’s a January 6 defendant or not.” Tucker Carlson released a documentary on FOX news discussing the mistreatment of January 6th protesters and the police state crackdown that ensued after the unrest. Two FOX News contributors resigned this week in response to the video. The New York Times Reports–
The trailer for Tucker Carlson’s special about the Jan. 6 mob at the Capitol landed online on Oct. 27, and that night Jonah Goldberg sent a text to his business partner, Stephen Hayes: “I’m tempted just to quit Fox over this.”
“I’m game,” Mr. Hayes replied. “Totally outrageous. It will lead to violence. Not sure how we can stay.”
Jonah Goldberg has been a frequent contributor to the National Review, where he has been an apologist for the disastrous Iraq War and continues to advocate for an aggressive foreign policy to this day. Leading up to the Iraq War, he falsely claimed that the Iraqi government was close to developing nuclear weapons.
He and Hayes have been frequent critics of President Trump. In the wake of the January 6th unrest, both called for President Trump’s impeachment. ”
“President Trump needs to be impeached and removed, immediately. And responsible Republicans need to lead the effort.” Hayes said on Twitter in January.
