CNN has now announced that it will be hiring conservative commentator Jonah Goldberg.
The Details: Goldberg has long been known as a conservative who has been consistently critical of former President Donald Trump.
Goldberg, who is a nationally syndicated columnist, was an editor at National Review for years. In addition he previously worked as a commentator for Fox News.
Goldberg left Fox News in protest over a documentary promoted by Fox host Tucker Carlson’s which alleges that the events of January 6th 2021 may have been secretly coordinated by the U.S. government.
Many pro-Trump conservatives proceeded to mock CNN after the announcement:
Just so we are clear, Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes both left Fox, citing “principles” over Tucker Carlson downplaying Jan 6, to instead move to CNN and NBC, who instead claimed Jan 6 was 9/11+pearl harbour. Makes sense. https://t.co/Ps2wTHRqLJ

So now Stephen Hayes is at NBC and Jonah Goldberg is at CNN. Hopefully not in the "permanent anti-Fox seat," because that would be awkward. https://t.co/HPfT69iIxV
