Dear Commons Community,
Former Fox News chief political correspondent Carl Cameron took a shot at his old network earlier this week — while announcing that he’s starting a new adventure.
Cameron announced in a YouTube video (above) on June 24 that he’s joining a new website called Front Page Live, two years after leaving Fox News after 22-years of reporting.
“The idea of fair and balanced news appealed to me,” Cameron said in the video. “But over the years right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation.”
Cameron was one of Fox’s first hires, and said he has a deep understanding of how the right thinks, and experience of “literally thirty years” of covering Donald Trump.
Cameron didn’t sugarcoat his opinion on Trump either, calling him a “con man,” as well as accusing him of colluding with Russia and appealing to voters to be informed before the next election.
Welcome to the light side, Mr. Cameron!
