Bill Sammon, Fox News' Managing Editor in DC and Patient Zero for Infecting the Network with NeverTrump AIDS, Announces His Retirement

Barely scratches the surface, of course.

Bill Sammon, Fox News Channel's senior vice president and managing editor in Washington, is retiring at the end of the month, a spokesperson confirmed to The Hill.

Sammon told staff during a morning meeting on Monday that he is leaving the network, where he has worked since 2008. It is not yet known if the position will be filled.

The Daily Beast article from Friday had a few details about who else might be on the Retire/Spend More Time with Family list.

"And the new year hasn't brought Fox News much positive ratings news either. Adding insult to injury, Newsmax once again beat the network in head-to-head ratings on Tuesday, this time topping Fox in the key demographic (viewers ages 25-54) during two separate hours.

...

Wallace, meanwhile, has been in hot water ever since Fox's decision desk accurately called Arizona for Joe Biden on election night--a matter of much internal consternation, often seen as a key reason a chunk of Trump-loyal viewers deserted the network for Newsmax.

Chris Stirewalt, the network's political editor who oversees the team that made the projection, has been missing from Fox's airwaves since mid-November.

This was not an accurate call. If they had an accurate sense of the race, they never would have called the race. You don't call a race in which millions of people have voted in which one guy supposedly has an 11,000 vote lead -- including many contested ballots.


The "too close to call" designation exists for a reason.

Fox News wasn't engaging in election analysis here, so much as wishful thinking and dreamcasting. Like many dying media companies, they decided to spurn their actual audience in favor of the political propaganda they personally wanted to push.
