'Front Page Live' Launches As Progressive's Drudge Report
Former Fox News reporter Carl Cameron said Monday that he left the network favored by conservatives because "right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation."
The Hill reports Cameron made the remarks in a promotional video about why he joined Front Page Live, a website whose goal is, in part, to serve as an antidote to the conservative Drudge Report.
Cameron, now Front Page Live's chief political correspondent, said he joined Fox News in its early days because the "idea of fair and balanced news appealed to me."
"But over the years, the right-wing hosts drowned out straight journalism with partisan misinformation. I left," he added before noting that he has "unique insight and understanding of how the right operates and literally 30 years of covering Donald Trump."
Cameron said his job at Front Page Live will be to "inform — that's it" and touted the new website as "a powerful resource for anyone who wants real facts over partisan propaganda."
Cameron retired from Fox News in 2017 after serving for 22 years as one of its chief political correspondents. He said in an email to colleagues at the time that he was "immensely grateful for the relationships, experiences, and many lessons over the last two decades,” TVNewser reported.
