‘I Want To Quit’ : Disgusted Fox News Employees Blast The Network Over ‘Absurd’ Trump-Russia Coverage
Some Fox employees are publicly calling out the network for trying to brush the news surrounding the indictments against former Trump campaign officials by special Counsel Robert Mueller under the rug.
The employees said they were particularly disheartened by Fox segments that questioned Mueller’s credibility, which one person said “does the viewer a huge disservice and further divides the country,” according to CNN.
“It’s an embarrassment,” they told CNN’s Oliver Darcy. “Frankly, there are shows on our network that are backing the President at all costs, and it’s that short term strategy that undermines the good work being done by others.”
The employees said they were deeply humiliated by the way their network brushed off the biggest story of the day.
“It is another blow to journalists at Fox who come in every day wanting to cover the news in a fair and objective way,” one senior Fox employee told Darcy. “Fox feels like an extension of the Trump White House.”
“I’m watching now and screaming,” said a different Fox personality. “I want to quit.”
Another employee fumed that Fox had morphed from a conservative news network to a public relations machine for Trump.
