Fox News Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt, Roughly 20 Others Fired

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Politics editor Chris Stirewalt, along with nearly two dozen digital journalists, have been fired from Fox News.

Stirewalt is listed by the New York Times as one of two “senior leaders” exiting the network as Fox “tries to lure back viewers who balked at its coverage of the 2020 election and its aftermath.”

The other is Bill Sammon, Fox News’s longtime Washington bureau chief, who told staff that he would be retiring at the end of the month.

Stirewalt, however, was “fired” according to the Times, along with “roughly 20 Fox News digital journalists” who were laid off on Tuesday.

Chris Stirewalt became the face of Fox News’ failed election night coverage when the network called the state of Arizona for President-elect Joe Biden much earlier than other mainstream networks.
