Via AAN:

Two Fox News personalities have now unceremoniously quit the network over Fox Host Tucker Carlson’s controversial documentary on the January 6th incursion into the Capitol building.

As The Hill reports:

A pair of Fox News contributors have quit their roles at the network, saying prime-time host Tucker Carlson‘s recent documentary series examining the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was a breaking point.

Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg, two leading conservative writers and pundits who have regularly appeared on the network since 2009, announced they had finalized their resignations from Fox following the release of Carlson’s controversial documentary.

News of the pair’s departure was first reported by the New York Times on Sunday evening.

“The special — which ran on Fox’s subscription streaming service earlier this month and was promoted on Fox News — is presented in the style of an exposé, a hard-hitting piece of investigative journalism,” the two journalists wrote in an entry on their political news and commentary website The Dispatch.

Carlson’s controversial series, entitled ‘Patriot Purge,’ promotes a view of the events of January 6th at odds with mainstream opinion, and at one point even suggests the events may have been a ‘false flag’ provocation.

I watched the crowd mllling around and demanding access. Some of the 2,300 armed guards noted that the protestors had no sign of weapons , while others seemed prone to holding the flimsy fencing. One wondered if a few had orders to let them get into trouble.

They did. They had no visible leadership and some wanted to exploit a news event partly encouraged. Besides, these were not young warrior athletic specimens ready to scale vertical walls as perhaps a few learned do several or more decades before. This was not an afrmee mlitial.

Tucker has done more harm to our party than anyone else on TV. He lives for the 30% and turns up to 70%. Will never win elections with 30%

Dear Fixer,
Please state specific examples of how Tucker has done more harm to “our party” than anyone on T.V. And does that include Joy Reid in your scientific analysis?

Jonah Goldberg is a know it all. So, he and the other guy quit because Tucker Carlson’s documentary didn’t flow with the main street media OPINIONS? Opinions versus an investigative journalist’s fact finding? They lose. Goodbye. Don’t let the door………………..”

The Documentary will lead to violence???

If there is any violence it will only be due to the Jury finding Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges. The documentary has nothing to do with the jury decision.
Any violence wil come form BLM and ANTIFA who will rage hysterically that Americans haveth right to defend themselves (2nd Amendment) and that clearly any defense is best administered through firearms possession in public.

Hurray! These two are Trump haters. I have seen time and again their distain for President Trump enacting the policies they have been promoting, but they just hated the fact that Trump was the one who was able to get them enacted. Moreover, they misrepresent what went on Jan 6th. every time they give their opinions. GOOD RIDDANCE.

If the “Hard -Hitting Expose” was “Too much ” for those So-Called Journalists why did they take the Coward’s Way Out? Quitting is easy, Standing and Defending , if there is something worth defending is the “True Journalist’s” way and they would have defended their position instead of “Pulling a Biden” and cutting and running

So little Stevie and Jonah suffered emotional trauma as a result of that big bad nasty Tucker’s documentary. Thankfully CNN and LSNBC have initiated recovery programs for these wee wittle babies.

The ” New Managing Person” in charge of CNN wants to change the Network for the Better by changing their reporting from Fiction to Fact making the News more Palpableand Less Opinionated!
