Carl Cameron, who was a regular on such programs as Special Report and Shepard Smith Reporting, expressed his views in a video promoting his new venture — a progressive alternative to the Drudge Report, The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple reported. In the video, Cameron explained why he signed on to Fox News in the first place, and what made him leave.
“The idea of fair and balanced news appealed to me,” Cameron said. “But over the years, the right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation. I left.”
Cameron told the Post that viewers often made assumptions about his politics based on his employer, but he never commented either way.
Cameron left Fox in 2017.
