Fox Nation is a streaming service launched by Fox News in 2018. It offers a variety of right-wing and conservative content, including original shows, documentary films, and commentary from popular Fox News personalities.
In January 2021, several high-profile hosts left Fox News, including ProPublica reporter Jesse Eisinger and National Review editor Jonah Goldberg. These departures came amid reports of internal strife at the network, with some staffers reportedly unhappy with the direction of the network under new management.
Goldberg was one of the most prominent voices at Fox News, and his departure is a significant loss for the network. He was a regular contributor to Fox & Friends and also hosted his own show, The Jonah Goldberg Show. He was a critical voice on the network, often challenging President Trump and other Republicans.
Eisinger was a investigative reporter at ProPublica who won a Pulitzer Prize in 2017. He joined Fox News in 2019 as part of thenetwork’s investigative unit. His departure leaves a big hole in Fox News’ investigative team.
These departures come as Fox News is facing increased competition from other right-wing networks like Newsmax and OANN. It remains to be seen how these changes will impact the network’s ratings and viewership.
