Former Fox News reporter Carl Cameron took a shot at his former employer on Monday as he unveiled a new venture.

The Washington Post reported that Cameron, along with ThinkProgress’ Joe Romm, are creating a liberal answer to the Drudge Report. The new website is called Front Page Live, and Cameron serves as chief political correspondent.

In a video introducing himself, Cameron talked about how he went from one of Fox News’ first hires to a news site with a bunch of progressives.

“I was one of Fox’s first hires. The idea of ‘fair and balanced’ news appealed to me, but over the years, right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation,” he said.

“I left,” he continued. “I have unique insight and understanding of how the right operates, and literally 30 years of covering Donald Trump.”

Cameron isn’t the only former Fox personality to call out the network’s opinion hosts after leaving. Last year, Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a former Fox contributor, criticized the network in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

“Today’s Fox prime-time lineup preaches paranoia, attacking processes and institutions vital to our republic and challenging the rule of law,” Peters wrote.

  1. Carl should cast a spell on Fox News if he really wants revenge. Maybe turn Hannity into a newt.

    that would be a major upgrade.

  3. Until he got better.

  4. Not sure how much to trust a guy that ever fell for the Fair and Balanced bullshit even in the beginning. After all it’s not as if the MSM has ever been all that lefty, only by judging based on recent standards after fox so-called news helped drag the world of tv news so far right can you consider the likes of CNN, CBS, NBC or ABC anything beyond centrist.
