'I want to quit': Fox News employees say their network's Russia coverage was 'an embarrassment'

Some employees at Fox News were left embarrassed and humiliated by their network's coverage of the latest revelations in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling, according to conversations CNN had with several individuals placed throughout the network.

"I'm watching now and screaming," one Fox News personality said in a text message to CNN as the person watched their network's coverage. "I want to quit."

"It is another blow to journalists at Fox who come in every day wanting to cover the news in a fair and objective way," one senior Fox News employee told CNN of their outlet's coverage, adding that there were "many eye rolls" in the newsroom over how the news was covered.

The person said, "Fox feels like an extension of the Trump White House."

4. I can see Shep Smith and Chris Wallace saying this. I don't know why Wallace has stayed there

so long. He could have gone to another network and had a respectable career.

Then why do they work THERE? And this is the first time they've been "embarrassed"?

8. THEN QUIT ALREADY

(Note: This rant is not directed at greyl or anyone who brings this whining to a wider audience.)

I can't stand the whining of Fox employees who are shocked - shocked! - to discover that their organization doesn't cover the news in a fair and objective way. Quit, then. Get your resume in order and start shopping around if you're so distressed, you fucking snowflakes. Unlike actual victims of our society's biases, you are free to affect your own career arc and leave Fox. Today. Put on your big kid underoos and walk out the door. There are no armed guards or locked cells keeping you there. Walk. Put one foot in front of the other and take control of your life. Grow up, you whiny ass titty babies.

11. That's hilarious

"It is another blow to journalists at Fox who come in every day wanting to cover the news in a fair and objective way,"

LMFAO!

"cover the news in a fair and objective way" What a load of BS. If they genuinely wanted to do that they'd have never taken jobs at faux.
