Two Fox News contributors announced Sunday that they've resigned from the network in the wake of host Tucker Carlson's special on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Why it matters: Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg had regularly appeared on Fox News since 2009. Their brand of conservatism has "fallen out of fashion" amid former President Trump's grip on the Republican Party, per the New York Times, which first reported on the resignations.
Driving the news: Hayes and Goldberg wrote in an article published by The Dispatch Sunday that Carlson's three-part series on the insurrection, titled "Patriot Purge," represented "a collection of incoherent conspiracy-mongering, riddled with factual inaccuracies, half-truths, deceptive imagery, and damning omissions."
I think it's funny how old fashioned gop fucks got alarmed now by the 45 faction. Nobody can predict the preciseness of events which will take place, as a result of certain thinking, but seeing them happen can't be a great surprise. I'm unsurprised and I'm damned near an idiot. Therefore, I have to assume that they're just continuing to play the job angle and go where they feel the momentum is. Hopefully they're finally right.
