Fox News Contributors Resign Over New Tucker Carlson Special

A pair of Fox News contributors have quit their roles at the network, saying prime-time host Tucker Carlson‘s recent documentary series examining the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was a breaking point.

Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg, two leading conservative writers and pundits who have regularly appeared on the network since 2009, announced they had finalized their resignations from Fox following the release of Carlson’s controversial documentary.

News of the pair’s departure was first reported by the New York Times on Sunday evening.
