The only Sunday morning news show I watch is Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.

Chris Wallace is an old school journalist...a reporter, not a preacher. Trump hated being interviewed by him. When Wallace interviewed Trump, he skewered Trump.

Wallace regularly had leaders of both parties shaking in their boots...this morning, Wallace held Lindsey Graham to account for some loose political claims.

Today's show was what Fox once claimed to be, i.e., fair and balanced.

As the show concluded, Wallace announced that this show would be his last, that he is leaving Fox.

The guy's pure class. He had only praise for the network he's leaving, though, clearly, he left much unsaid.

Drudge is reporting that Wallace is moving to CNN+.

If that's the case, I'm certain he'll be strong enough to thrive in the environment that tolerated...heck, enabled...the corrupt reporting of Chris Cuomo. Perhaps, he'll bring a revival to the network whose ratings have dipped about 75% in less than a year. If he's permitted to run a show like he presented on Fox, I'll watch it.

I know that many who post here would never watch Fox so I'll report, as a viewer, firsthand what's going on there. Tucker Carlson has increased in influence there and his increased prominence has been disruptive.

I almost never watch Carlson. I only watch if he attracts a guest I want to see. That hasn't happened that I can remember for years. He has been promoting an alternate view of the January 6 fiasco that is radically at odds with the standard SwampMedia take. It's been controversial even at Fox.

If I had to guess, I'd say that the Carlson thing is behind the departure of Chris Wallace.

I am genuinely chagrined.

    Whenever FOX News was accused of not having serious, unbiased, credible journalists, FOX News apologists invoked Chris Wallace's name.

    I heard that his CNN+ show will be non-political. Wallace may have had a non-compete clause in his contract that forbid a political show for a period of time or maybe forever. Otherwise, he'd be an obvious choice to take over Cuomo's old time slot.

    I can't imagine Chris Wallace wanting to do an hour five days a week but, then, I couldn't have imagined him going to that ethical dumpster fire that is CNN.

    And, he is in his 70s.
