    Fox News departure: Catherine Herridge joins CBS News, saying 'facts matter'

    New York (CNN Business)In another major defection from the newsroom of Fox News, Catherine Herridge is joining CBS News as a senior investigative correspondent.

    Herridge, Fox's chief intelligence correspondent, was a founding employee of Fox News in 1996 and a leader in the network's Washington bureau.

    She was in talks to join CBS before Shep Smith, also a founding Fox employee, resigned on October 11 in the middle of a multi-year contract, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

    Herridge's Fox contract expired over the summer. Fox wanted her to renew, but knew her exit was a possibility, one of the sources said. Friday will be her last day.

    In a statement released through Fox, Herridge thanked Fox patriarch Rupert Murdoch "for the opportunity to cover the most impactful stories of the last 23 years, most recently the Special Counsel report and impeachment inquiry. I have received great personal satisfaction from mentoring the next generation of reporters and producers and sharing my journalistic values ó that facts matter and enterprise reporting will always win the day."

    In a statement released through CBS, Herridge also invoked the importance of facts, but in a way that could be interpreted as a criticism of Fox: "CBS News has always placed a premium on enterprise journalism and powerful investigations," she said. "I feel privileged to join a team where facts and storytelling will always matter."
    CBS said she will begin her new role in November.

    "She will report original investigations and cover national security and intelligence matters that impact the country," the network said.
    Herridge is the latest in a series of high-profile departures from Fox in the Trump age.

    Some journalists at the network have complained about a lack of space for real reporting and described feeling squeezed out by the right-wing talk shows that President Trump and his supporters prefer.
    It is unknown whether Herridge felt those frustrations. She frequently appeared on Fox's opinion shows with her reporting, as well as daytime newscasts.

    Fox News president Jay Wallace recently pushed back on the assertions that Fox's news operation is being minimized, saying, "Journalism is a huge part of the mandate here."
    Smith's 3 p.m. time slot is being filled by a rotating cast of Fox's news anchors. Wallace told Variety magazine that a new anchor will likely be named next year.
    Herridge's intel beat will similarly be filled by a rotation of DC-based correspondents, according to Fox.

    Wallace praised Herridge in a statement about her departure on Thursday.
    "As a founding employee, over the last 23 years, Catherine Herridge has been an asset to Fox News," he said. "From her breaking news headlines at the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to her reporting after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the investigation into Princess Diana's death, she has always been at the forefront of every beat she has covered," said Jay Wallace, president of Fox News Media. " We are grateful for Catherine's many contributions to the network, wish her continued success and were proud to honor her as she received the Tex McCrary Award for Journalism last week from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society for her enterprise reporting at Fox News."

    I've not been watching FOX, so I don't have any impressions about her.

    Sounds like she is trying to make a good impression for the CBS bosses.

    (sorry for these late edits CP)

    Do you think she will actually be able to fix things at CBS?

    This is really sad news for Fox. She's a top-notch, straight-up journalist. The only thing similarly bad would be losing Jennifer Griffin.

    The times that I saw her she always seemed completely professional.

    You've apparently never watched Maddow, there is none better. But glad you've acknowledged that your "journalism is a joke" comment only applied to the journalism you don't like hearing.
