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.
