Fox News employees just leaked to CNN that they are humiliated by how their network is covering the recent charges made by special counsel Robert Mueller against key Trump campaign officials.
“I’m watching now and screaming,” one Fox News personality texted CNN while watching the network. “I want to quit.”
“This kind of coverage does the viewer a huge disservice and further divides the country,” one Fox News personality told CNN.
Fox News journalists particularly loathed the coverage done by the network’s pro-Trump opinion hosts, such as Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Hannity has echoed Trump’s term “witch hunt” when describing Mueller’s investigation, a term that runs counter to the consensus of the U.S. intelligence community.
“It’s an embarrassment,” another Fox News employee echoed to CNN. “Frankly, there are shows on our network that are backing the President at all costs, and it’s that short term strategy that undermines the good work being done by others.”
“That segment on Outbumbered [questioning Mueller’s integrity] was absurd and deserves all the scorn it can get,” a Fox News employee told CNN, referencing the network’s noontime talk show. The person described that it was “laughable seeing Hannity and [Laura] Ingraham tripping over themselves saying [Mueller’s team has] found nothing thus far.”
