It always comes down to a choice between truth and pride, most choose pride.
even though Murdoch met with Barr...Murdoch does not own controlling interest as far as I can tell.
Is he related to Fox News Media president Jay Wallace?
Recently I asked the company to allow me to leave FOX News and begin a new chapter. After requesting that I stay, they graciously obliged. The opportunities afforded this guy from small town Mississippi have been many, Smith said in a statement. Its been an honor and a privilege to report the news each day to our loyal audience in context and with perspective, without fear or favor. Ive worked with the most talented, dedicated and focused professionals I know and Im proud to have anchored their work each dayI will deeply miss them.

We are proud of the signature reporting and anchoring style he honed at FOX News, along with everything he accomplished here during his monumental 23-year tenure. While this day is especially difficult as his former producer, we respect his decision and are deeply grateful for his immense contributions to the entire network.
