Chris Wallace left Fox News at the end of last year, moving over to CNN’s streaming site. In a new interview on Sunday, Wallace revealed why he decided to do this.

“I just no longer felt comfortable with the programming at Fox,” Wallace said, according to Daily Mail. “I’m fine with opinion: conservative opinion, liberal opinion. But when people start to question the truth — Who won the 2020 election? Was January 6 an insurrection? — I found that unsustainable.”

“Before, I found it was an environment in which I could do my job and feel good about my involvement at Fox,” he added. “And since November of 2020, that just became unsustainable, increasingly unsustainable as time went on. Some people might have drawn the line earlier, or at a different point.”

Wallace concluded by saying that he feels that “Fox has changed over the course of the last year and a half. But I can certainly understand where somebody would say, ‘Gee, you were a slow learner, Chris.'”

Fox News insiders, however, are not having any of it.

“Chris Wallace’s Fox News Sunday was fourth in a four-horse race and never got out of 4th place throughout his entire 18 years of hosting the show. He was the only anchor at Fox not to helm a number one show,” said one insider.

“This story really isn’t surprising,” this source added. “What’s shocking is it took Chris 18 years to leave but I suppose when you’re earning millions upon millions of dollars every year, you’re happy to stay and amass great wealth and a personal fortune that his viewers could only ever dream of.”

Another insider agreed, saying, “Clearly he’s launching a new show, so he needs eyeballs and bashing Fox is an easy way to try and get viewers to find him at his new home.”

“Also, what a way to start – let’s announce you’re happy not to throw to Wolf Blitzer,” this source continued. “Take note CNN, your new hire will only ever by loyal to himself and not the company that is sending a Brinks truck full of cash to his personal bank.”

Wallace is set to host his own show that will be on Monday to Thursday on CNN+, which starts streaming on Tuesday. It will cost $6-a-month to become a member of this streaming site.

Wallace announced on December 12 that he would be leaving Fox.

“After 18 years this is my final Fox News Sunday,” he said at the time. “It is the last time, and I say this with real sadness, we will meet like this. Eighteen years ago, the bosses here at Fox promised they would never interfere with a guest I booked or a question I asked. And they kept that promise.”

Wallace had long been seen as one of the more liberal voices on Fox. It remains to be seen whether he will find any success on CNN.
