Former Fox employee is furious that he got fired

We covered the story of Fox News firing former employee Chris Stirewalt, after Stirewalt’s early call of Arizona for Joe Biden was widely panned.

Now, Stirewalt is speaking out – and he’s angry that he was fired.

In an op-ed for the LA Times, Stirewalt bragged about being first to call Arizona for Biden saying “I was proud of our being first to project that Joe Biden would win Arizona, and very happy to defend that call in the face of a public backlash egged on by former President Trump. Being right and beating the competition is no act of heroism; it’s just meeting the job description of the work I love.”

He then moved on to somehow link his firing to the capital riots, saying “What tugs at my mind after seeing a mob of enthusiastic ignoramuses sack the Capitol, though, is whether that sophistication will come quickly enough when outlets have the means to cater to every unhealthy craving of their consumers.”

Stirewalt is blowing smoke. If anything, he’s part of the problem. When consumers sense that media has become a good old boys club biased against the people and in favor of the establishment, then noxious frustration can boil over into disgraceful scenes like the capital riots. People will believe anything because they can’t trust flacks like Stirewalt. That doesn’t make the riots right – but it does mean that Stirewalt is 100% wrong to link them to his firing.

When Stirewalt was fired, we wrote: “things are changing at Fox News, and that’s largely because the big boss, Rupert Murdoch, is back in charge. Murdoch has always been keenly in touch with what audiences want, and he appears to be picking up on the fact that the majority of Fox viewers are fed up with the network.”

Let’s hope things keep rolling in the same direction.
