Fox News White House correspondent and anti-Trump Kristin Fisher and announced Friday on-air that she is leaving the network for a job in CNN.
Fox News Correspondent Kristin Fisher, who has made anti-Trump remarks before, is now leaving Fox News for left-wing CNN as Friday was her last day with Fox News.
Conservatives have been complaining about Fox News taking a decidedly liberal slant during the day for years — and now there is even more evidence that this really is the case.
Friday while she appeared on “Special Report with Bret Baier”, she said, “From the jobs report to my own job, this is my last live shot on my last day at Fox News.”
“I have had an incredible run. I started out six years ago on the early morning weekend shift. I made it all the way to the White House, which is something that has been at the very top of my career bucket list ever since I was a very little girl,” she said.

The reporter added that there are a “few other things on that list that I would like to try to tick off.”
Sources familiar with her situation confirmed to The Hill that she will be heading over to CNN following suit with multiple former Fox News correspondents.
Fisher had gone after former President Donald Trump during the end of his last term over COVID-19 testing in which promoted a long response by the former president.
“Are you ready? Are you ready? Hospitals can do their own testing, also. States can do their own testing. States are supposed to be doing testing. Hospitals are supposed to be doing testing. Do you understand that? Listen. We’re the federal government; we’re not supposed to be standing on street corners doing testing. They go to doctors. They go to hospitals. They go to the state. The state is a more localized government. You have 50 of them,” Trump said.
The two have clashed in the past and now she seems to be going elsewhere to perhaps “fit in” better with left-wing CNN. It appears she will as she is no friend of the former president and it is good that she will be leaving Fox.
Fox needs more America First patriots like Lou Dobbs and less anti-Trump reporters like Kristen Fisher.
