Heel Turn: Frequent Trump Critic Chris Wallace is Leaving Fox News to Join CNN

For the four years he was in office, Donald Trump received over the top fawning praise from the Fox News network. Chris Wallace, and to a lesser extent Bret Baier, were the notable exceptions. Long-time journalist Wallace has always been willing to ask tough questions to Republican lawmakers on the show. But he will now be plying his trade somewhere else.

The host said during his Sunday show, “After 18 years — this is my final Fox News Sunday. It is the last time — and I say this with real sadness — we will meet like this. I want to try something new, to go beyond politics to all the things I’m interested in. I’m ready for a new adventure. And I hope you’ll check it out.”

Wallace also had high praise for the network, saying:

“Eighteen years ago, the bosses here at Fox promised me they would never interfere with a guest I booked or a question I asked. And they kept that promise. I have been free to report to the best of my ability, to cover the stories I think are important, to hold our country’s leaders to account.”

Brian Stelter later revealed that Wallace will be joining CNN.

Wallace leaving the network is certain to plunge Fox farther to the right. It remains to be seen if he will be replaced by someone more in the middle.
