“I’m ready for a new adventure,” the 74-year-old said surprisingly Sunday at the end of his weekly programme. “Fox News Sunday”. CNN has announced that Wallace will be the provider of its planned streaming service CNN+, which will go live in the first quarter of next year.
Wallace was respected as a freelancer despite his service at Fox News. Trump and his supporters have repeatedly attacked the mediator because, in their view, he made a highly critical report. Wallace also moderated the first debate before the US presidential election between Trump and eventual election winner Joe Biden last September. Trump then accused Wallace of being “controlled by the radical left”. CNN is openly critical of Trump in the polarized American media world.
“I was free”
Wallace said on Sunday, “Eighteen years ago, the chiefs at Fox promised me that they would never interfere with any guest I booked or a question I asked. And they kept that promise. I was free to report according to my knowledge and belief, to cover the stories I considered important.” As he put it, the Sunday Equinox was Lass’ last appearance on Fox News Sunday. (SDA)
