Another faux noise talking head jumping ship......and going to CBS

In another major defection from the newsroom of Fox News, Catherine Herridge is joining CBS News as a senior investigative correspondent.

Herridge, Fox's chief intelligence correspondent, was a founding employee of Fox News in 1996 and a leader in the network's Washington bureau. She was in talks to join CBS before Shep Smith, also a founding Fox employee, resigned on October 11 in the middle of a multi-year contract, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.
Catherine Herridge is leaving Fox News for CBS.

Herridge's Fox contract expired over the summer. Fox wanted her to renew, but knew her exit was a possibility, one of the sources said. Friday will be her last day.

In a statement released through Fox, Herridge thanked Fox patriarch Rupert Murdoch "for the opportunity to cover the most impactful stories of the last 23 years, most recently the Special Counsel report and impeachment inquiry. I have received great personal satisfaction from mentoring the next generation of reporters and producers and sharing my journalistic values that facts matter and enterprise reporting will always win the day."

7. Agree. She'd need a brain transplant to not be a taint.

People don't spend years lying to the nation and spreading fear and division, and even hate, and somehow just decide to become honest people of good character and judgement. Our brains don't work that way.

Just looked and Herridge has been with Fox since the very beginning. Among many other things, she was there when Fox joined other RW media trolling the nation for assassins to kill Obama. All day long.

12. Are you familiar with her work?

I don't watch Faux News so I have no idea whether she's a "really good reporter". But apparently facts didn't seem to be an issue for her during her years at FOX.

3. Working for Fox should be a permanent stain on a reporter's career.

No reputable media company should hire them lest their dedication to the truth be questioned.

4. Shep Smith is a good man,

and he was a voice of reason on Fox.

5. Perhaps. But I suspect Smith's primary...

... role with the network was to merely give it a veneer of legitimacy. He has to realize and accept that. Surely he sometimes watched the shit that aired around him, right? He was therefore part of the charade.

9. Perhaps they aren't defecting, like a virus they might just be spreading to other cells.

10. Seeking asylum? Or infiltrating?

It seems that there are wall builders here, that would allow zero crossovers from the other side.

If a sister came to me and said, "I lay awake at night thinking of our differences.
You've made some compelling points about the prevailing wrongness of my views.
I accept that I drank the koolaid. I can't take it any more. I wish to make amends with you."

Welcome? Big hugs?
"Come on in. I've got some cold brewskis and a warm fire."

or "GET OFF MY LAWN!" and slam the door in their face?

As a bonus plus - Catherine carries fauxsnuz's playbook.
