Things are moving fast inside the loony bin called Fox non-news. It would appear there is much fallout from the recent bombshells that have occurred.

As you know, texts to Mark Meadows recently surfaced from several Fox non-hosts. These texts were sent on January 6 and showed hysterical Fox non-pundits imploring Meadows to tell Trump to call off the terrorists.

So, fast forward to today. Chris Wallace has left the building. We congratulate him on his sane choice to disassociate himself from the network from hell.

But could there be more where that came from? Perhaps so. Bret Baier is possibly the last remaining host with ANY sort of reputation. And he is speaking out about his network.

Appearing on “Media Buzz,” Baier was open about the frustrations at Fox. “It really stinks,” he said. Baier was referring to his network becoming the news rather than reporting on it. “Because I’m trying to never be the news and trying to report and cover things fairly.”

Covering things “fairly” on Fox is definitely not a prerequisite to working there. Could Baier be next in line to leave? It wouldn’t be that much of a surprise. Very few people with any dignity seem to want to be associated with the non-respectable network.

In other news at Fox, Sean Hannity surprised people by announcing a seemingly unplanned vacation. He will not be back on Fox until after we welcome 2022. Many speculate he is trying to put distance between himself and the text scandal. Perhaps they’re right.

Fox has definitely not had an easy time of it lately. Perhaps if they would stop attempting to kill their viewers with fake Covid conspiracies and start reporting the actual news, their luck might turn around.
