I love to bring both sides so that you can make an informed decision. My history with Fox News hasn’t been told yet, but the network is not on the up and up and I said it.

According to Jonah Goldberg, one of two longstanding Fox News contributors who left a last week in protest over Tucker Carlson’s falsehood-filled Fox Nation special about the Capitol riot, the network’s allegation that it intended to cut the two conservative journalists next year is “bulls—.”

When Steve Hayes’ and Jonah Goldberg’s contracts expired in 2022, according to a Fox News official, the network had no plan of renewing their contracts — Hayes’ contract expired in May, while Goldberg’s contract was extended to the end of next year.

‘This is such a bulls— defense,’ Goldberg said on Twitter first thing in the morning on Tuesday. They must have forgotten to notify the first two reporters who inquired about the situation. Were they at a meeting 14 months before my contract was up and decided that they didn’t want me to stay?

A representative for Fox News declined to provide any further information, which is a tell sign, eh? 

According to a report published on Sunday by the New York Times, Hayes and Goldberg were concerned that Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” special would “incite violence” and was the final indication that the network was still catering to Trump’s dubious claims about the 2020 election and the January 6 insurrection nine months after his presidency ended.

He and Hayes remained with the network, according to Goldberg, because talks in the workplace led them to think that it would strive to “recover its independence and, as he put it, “right the ship.” ” The “Patriot Purge,” however, according to Goldberg, was “a indication that people have made peace with this direction of things, and there is no plan, at least that I am aware of, for a course correction.”

Goldberg and Hayes, longtime contributors to the National Review and writer for the Weekly Standard, were major figures in right-wing media circles before to Trump’s election, but they seem to be increasingly out of place in the Republican Party’s environment in 2021.

Their online publication The Dispatch was launched in 2012 as a “place where thinking readers can come for conservative, fact-based news and commentary,” according to the two founders.

Late Monday night, Goldberg took to Twitter to express his appreciation to supporters while also calling out those who were critical of his and Hayes’ choice.

“FWIW, I’d want to express my gratitude for the support received over the previous few days,” he added. “I’m pleased and encouraged by the manner in which people have queued up. But there will never be a time when I am not astonished by folks who are certain they understand my motivations better than I do. The fact is, it’s basically the one subject in which I am the world’s top expert.”
