Jonah Goldberg, for some reason, was a contributor to FoxNews. And so was Stephen Hayes.

Corporate media rubbed their hands in delight as they publicly cut ties with Fox over how they presented news that cut against the public narrative.

Stephen Hayes, apparently, was a columnist for Fox. As for Jonah Goldberg, he’s yet another of a long list of establishment RINOs whose mask came off when Trump was elected, pining for the halcyon days of Republican leaders losers he could relate to, like McCain and Romney.

They made an official announcement that they just can’t continue working under these circumstances. Why?

In separate interviews with NPR, Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg pointed to a breaking point this month: network star Tucker Carlson’s three-part series on the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, which relied on fabrications and conspiracy theories to exonerate the Trump supporters who participated in the attack.

“It’s basically saying that the Biden regime is coming after half the country and this is the War on Terror 2.0,” Goldberg tells NPR. “It traffics in all manner of innuendo and conspiracy theories that I think legitimately could lead to violence. That for me, and for Steve, was the last straw.” — NPR

When they followed up with Tucker, he did not disappoint.

Asked for comment for this story, Carlson said the departure of the two “will substantially improve the channel.”

He also mocked the two men for denouncing him for propounding conspiracy theories: “These are two of the only people in the world who still pretend the Iraq War was a good idea,” Carlson wrote to NPR. “No one wants to watch commentary that stupid.” — NPR

They seem to think that their departure is some kind of a victory for them, of taking the moral high road. Surely that’s how they would like to frame themselves. But for some of the rest of us, this is a self-selection process of the trash simply taking itself out.

It could just as easily be argued that these two stuck around well beyond their best before dates.

This is hardly the first time Jonah has parted ways with someone. In 2020, he managed to screw the pooch so badly that his employer dedicated a scathing article to explaining why it had become time to send Goldberg packing. Note the closing paragraph in the quote.

But from far outside Goldberg’s Beltway group-think media culture, we realize something Jonah doesn’t.

It is those same brash New York personality “qualities” that form the mosaic of who Trump is, and they inspire his genuine determination to Make America Great Again. As I wrote shortly after President Trump took office in 2017: “The day he arrived in DC, he dropped a bomb on the status quo in Congress and its special interests. He dropped a bomb on the regulatory behemoths and their bureaucratic bottlenecks. He dropped a bomb on the trade and national security institutions and alliances that failed miserably over the previous eight years. And he dropped a bomb on all the pundits and mainstream media outlets.”

That’s just what was needed at this juncture in history to begin draining the Beltway cesspool where Goldberg and his “smarter than thou” elite unite, and to launch a reformation of our nation’s capital institutions to once again be responsible to “We the People.” That will take more than another Trump term, but it’s a good start.

As for Goldberg’s columns, he is now at the bottom of our list of opinion writers in terms of readership. The Patriot’s editors, after retaining his column for its merit as a dissenting voice over the last two years, have unanimously decided to fire Jonah Goldberg. – Mark Alexander, Patriot Post

Unanimously, huh?

Sounds like this really isn’t much of a ‘loss’ for Fox News.

Especially since Tucker’s reporting on Jan 6 does a better job of accounting for known facts than the official end-of-democracy ‘insurrection’ narrative does for an event in which not a single person has been charged with perpetrating an actual insurrection… and whose key instigators are suspiciously absent from the list of those facing criminal charges.
