Former Fox News political reporter Carl Cameron said in a new interview that he left the conservative network because “right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation.”
Cameron made the remarks on Monday in a promotional video about why he joined Front Page Live, a website that hopes to serve as an “antidote” to the conservative Drudge Report.
“What’s a former Fox guy doing here on Front Page Live partnering with progressives?” Cameron, who worked at Fox News for more than two decades, said in the video. “Well, it’s about facts, not partisanship.”
Cameron said he joined Fox News in its early days because the “idea of fair and balanced news appealed to me.”
“But over the years, the right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation. I left,” he added before noting that he has “unique insight and understanding of how the right operates and literally 30 years of covering Donald Trump.”
Cameron said his new position as Front Page Live’s chief political correspondent will be to “inform — that’s it” and touted the new website as “a powerful resource for anyone who wants real facts over partisan propaganda.”
Cameron retired from Fox News in 2008 after more than 22 years at the network.
