The resignation of Chris Wallace comes at a crucial time. Fox News is running rings around rivals CNN and MSNBC with its right-wing and conservative commentary.

This includes the continuous reports of shortcomings from the Democrat administration, especially President Joe Biden.

In addition, the channel also continues to champion the cause of Republican leaders, notably former President Donald Trump. This led to some Fox News employees, including Chris Wallace, having second thoughts about the station’s programming choices. 

Chris Wallace Expressed Concern Over ‘Patriot Purge’

The 74-year old Wallace earlier expressed concerns about a documentary aired by Fox host Tucker Carlson. The report “Patriot Purge” includes the claim that the January 6 riot at the Capitol was a false flag operation designed to blame the right. Two sources who remained anonymous confirmed Wallace’s objections over the documentary. 

Meanwhile, Chris Wallace’s contract with Fox News Sunday ends this December. Sources said that the veteran host weighed several factors before deciding to hang up his Fox career.

Wallace also reportedly wanted to expand his work beyond politics. He also wants to delve into the business, sports, and entertainment.

As a result, Chris Wallace’s new job at CNN+, the network’s digital streaming platform, will include hosting an interview program. 

Wallace Joins List of Journalists To Leave Fox

Fox News often referred critics to Chris Wallace as the epitome of their impartial reporting. Wallace made a following for his no-nonsense interviews of politicians from both Democrat and Republican parties.

Wallace also served as the first Fox News anchor to moderate a presidential debate in 2016. He repeated the task in the 2020 debate featuring Trump and Biden.

Chris Wallace also received a nomination for an Emmy Award in 2018. The journalist received several accolades for his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

However, as Wallace gave his notice to leave Fox News, he joins a list of other media personalities who are Fox alumni. This includes the likes of Shepard Smith, Kristin Fisher, and Donna Brazile.

Also this year, liberal journalist Juan Williams lost his spot at the afternoon talk show “The Five”. Depending on who you ask, conservative commentators Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg either quit their jobs or Fox didn’t renew their contracts.

Hayes paid tribute to Wallace in an interview. “For lots of serious journalists of all stripes, we looked to Chris as a guide on how to do real news and real reporting is sometimes disorienting moments over the last several years,” he said. 

Wallace Ready For a New Adventure

Wallace gave an indication of his decision during his latest broadcast. “I’m ready for a new adventure,” he said during the show. Afterward, the savvy veteran thanked his network home since 2003.

“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,” he said.
