Former Fox News chief political correspondent Carl Cameron doesn’t seem to be a fan of his former employer.
In a promotional video for a new left-leaning media venture, Front Page Live, Cameron explained why he joined Fox News in the first place, and what made him leave the network.
“The idea of fair and balanced news appealed to me,” Cameron says in the video below. “But over the years, the right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation. I left.”
Cameron was one of Fox News Channel’s original hires, joining in 1995, the year before the network actually launched. He retired from Fox News in August 2017.
“After nearly 22 amazing, challenging wonderful years … I’m retiring from Fox News. I will always be immensely grateful for the relationships, experiences and many lessons over the last two decades,” Cameron wrote in his goodbye email.
Cameron covered a number of historical events for Fox News, including the 2000 presidential election, 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005, to name a few.
Immediately after leaving Fox News, he was named president of Londonderry Tales, an Atlanta-based film, TV and digital content production company. He was tasked with overseeing financing and production of all projects, reporting directly to Londonderry founder and CEO Patrick Millsaps.
Fox News gave Cameron a tribute video nearly two years prior to the video above:
