Chris Wallace is leaving Fox News

Chris Wallace is leaving Fox News to join CNN. That just about sums up his overall value.

Wallace closed his Sunday show with this announcement.

“After 18 years — this is my final FOX News Sunday,” Wallace said. “It is the last time — and I say this with real sadness — we will meet like this. Eighteen years ago, 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. It’s been a great ride. We’ve covered five presidential elections, interviewed every president since George H.W. Bush, travelled the world — sitting down with France’s Emanuel Macron and Russia’s Vladimir Putin. And I’ve gotten to spend Sunday mornings with you. It may sound corny, but I feel we’ve built a community here. There’s a lot you can do on Sundays. The fact you’ve chosen to spend this hour with us is something I cherish. But after 18 years, I have decided to leave Fox. I want to try something new, to go beyond politics to all the things I’m interested in. I’m ready for a new adventure. And I hope you’ll check it out. And so —for the last time, dear friends — that’s it for today. Have a great week. And I hope you’ll keep watching FOX News Sunday.”

Wallace talks a good game, but his supposed neutral stance didn’t keep him from attacking President Trump as viciously as his soon-to-be colleagues at CNN.

Trump had that effect on people – he stripped away the mask of objective journalism and showed people like Wallace to be what they truly are – partisan hacks LARP-ing as Walter Cronkite.
