Catherine Herridge, Fox News
Veteran, Moves to CBS News

Catherine Herridge, a Fox News Channel veteran who has been with that network since it was founded in 1996, is moving to rival CBS News. She will work as a senior investigative correspondent out of Washington, CBS News said, and will start in November. Herridge is the second long-serving Fox News journalist to leave the Fox Corporation-owned cable-news outlet in recent weeks. Shepard Smith, another long-serving Fox News journalist who was seen as the network’s main breaking-news anchor, surprised viewers earlier this month by announcing his departure on a Friday-afternoon broadcast. Smith had tangled on air with opinion host Tucker Carlson.

Comments:

Good, solid news reporter. Sorry to see her go to a network I never watch for good, solid news reporting.

One less reason to watch Fox. But only one reason to watch CBS.

I doubt if CBS will be as open to her reporting that doesn't meet their template. Hope she got a deal like Megyn Kelly did at NBC, because she'll either have to sell out or cash out at the end.

She thought FOX treated her unfairly. It will be interesting to see how she gets along there. Good luck, don't give up your values of hard news reporting.

It will be interesting to see if she is well received by CBS or if she will be shunned like Megyn Kelly was. Her unbiased approach and good sources generally got the story right. This style may run into conflicts with the snarky, anti-Trump bias that permeates every level of CBS News. She would be a good reporter to add balance to 60 minutes but if she treats Trump with impartiality she will get blow back from Pelley and the other DNC surrogates on the show.

Tragic to see an honest reporter swallowed up by one of the worst corporate propaganda machines. WIll miss her, as I will never watch anything on the corporate networks.

FTA: “CBS News has always placed a premium on enterprise journalism and powerful investigations,” said Herridge, in a statement. “I feel privileged to join a team where facts and storytelling will always matter.” I have no idea what they did to sell Catherine that she would have a lot of autonomy, but we'll have to see. I don't watch Fox so only know that the "Chicks on the Right" this morning were surprised by this move. She maybe looking to run "60 Minutes" someday or anchor the evening news? Stay tuned.

We will no longer see her because we do not watch CBS at all. Her comments about CBS are rather odd to me. I’m not used to her just making nice - kowtowing - or maybe she means that bit about their supposed standards. Troubling either way, to use a current cliche. “CBS News has always placed a premium on enterprise journalism and powerful investigations,” said Herridge, in a statement. “I feel privileged to join a team where facts and storytelling will always matter.” and then this: Her departure may give a new boost to recent speculation that the network’s news-side employees have grown frustrated during a period when its opinion hosts have largely used their programs to lend support to President Donald Trump and his administration, sometimes criticizing news reports.

Herridge, if I recall, gave a portion of her liver to her son in a transplant. I'm sure the medical bills weren't cheap. However, joining the enemy is not necessarily the answer. Surely she must know Sharyl Atkisson on a personal and/or professional basis and what 'public servants' did to Atkisson merely for being a journalist. From the Deep State's perspective, perhaps they tired of Herridge digging dirt and obtaining facts. Her CBS bosses will trim her claws via choice of assignments. They might give her some high-profile 60 Minutes segments to satisfy her ego. Either way, she won't be disrupting their nefarious activities as often.

I will be VERY surprised if Ms. Herridge is permitted to investigate and honestly report on the coup plotters, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, both Ohrs, and many more corrupt folks at FBI, DoJ, and CIA. That will be swept under the run at See BS, almost certainly.

Leaving Fox can be lucrative, but a career-killer for those who leave. Just ask Meghan Kelly, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Greta Van Sustern and Gretchen Carlson. The jury is still out on Shepard Smith.

Sorry to see her go from FOX. Her fan base at FOX will NOT follow her. And I am sure no viewers at CBS ever heard of her. I for one, haven'y watched a SeeBS news broadcast in over 20 years. Catherine being added to their line-up will not alter my avoiding SeeBS. Megyn Kelly did not do well at NBC apart from the money. I think NBC helped deep six Megyn's career. Hope the same does not happen to Catherine, but it is likely, SeeBS will have her covering something irrelevant. Time will tell.

For all of Trump’s flaws, real or perceived, the one thing that can always be counted on with him is that he’s going to say what he thinks. He’s unfiltered and that can lead to some awkward moments, but also some gratifying moments because he’s willing to say what other Republicans won’t. He’s willing to fight battles the party formerly refused to fight. This propensity has led to plenty of spittle flinging rants about decorum, but the lesson shouldn’t go unlearned by the GOP. One of the reasons voters got so frustrated prior to Trump was the constant fake, high-minded tripe that passed for political speech throughout the Obama years.

Washington has grown accustomed to the unexpected, the unusual and even the bizarre during the presidency of Donald Trump. But is it ready for John Bolton, hero of the “Resistance”? It’s a question increasingly on the minds of lawmakers, U.S. diplomats and possibly Trump himself as the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry forges ahead. A key revelation so far: Bolton, while serving as Trump’s national security adviser, raised alarms about the politically questionable role informal actors were playing in shaping U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine.

President Donald Trump called former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis “the world’s most overrated general” during a tense White House meeting Wednesday with lawmakers over the growing Syria/Turkey conflict, according to sources familiar with the meeting. The incident wasn’t the first time Trump has attacked the popular former Marine Corps general, once one of his most highly praised Cabinet officials. But since Mattis announced his resignation from the top Defense Department job last December, the president’s view of Mattis has increasingly soured.

This is interesting on the merits but also interesting in that two of the most powerful platforms in right-wing media are promoting it. I suppose one could argue that Trump handing the G7 to his own business isn’t a textbook emolument since it doesn’t really function as a bribe, which is what the constitutional ban is all about. We don’t want the president receiving fat envelopes from foreign dignitaries for fear that that’ll influence his views on foreign policy.

During the 2018 midterms, dozens of “moderate” Democrats won House seats in swing districts by forswearing partisan feuds in order to concentrate on the needs of their constituents. They pledged to focus less on conflict than on finding common ground with their Republican colleagues. They also modulated their comments concerning President Trump and, when the subject of impeachment arose, they insisted that it would be a destructive and unproductive exercise. Thursday, however, all but two voted in favor of a hyper-partisan impeachment resolution, exposing their campaign promises as cynical lies and ensuring that the Democrats will lose their House majority in 2020.
