Shep Smith announced yesterday that he is leaving FOX effective immediately. That leaves Chris Wallace as the sole remaining voice of reason on Trump's favorite network.
Just by coincidence, Bill Barr met with Rupert Murdoch at his home on Wednesday of this week:
The breaking point for Smith apparently came Friday morning"
On Friday, Smith accused the White House of engaging in a coverup and lying to the American people as he spoke to fellow Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.
“We’re still not clean on this, Chris. If there’s nothing there, and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this and nothing came of it, there’s a nothingburger, it wasn’t even memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell you about it, because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it — with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower? If all of that, why all these lies?” he asked.
Smith, of course, is not popular with members of Trump's cult:
"Shepard Smith is an absolute whack job. He wears entirely too much make up and he's a liberal moron. Get this guy off the air already!"

Trump isn't a fan either:
Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and @LelandVittert, trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse? In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!
