Fox News just made a move that’ll definitely get people talking. If not for this move, definitely for the reasoning behind it all: President Trump.

According to reports, Fox Business host Trish Regan was just fired by the network for recently defending President Trump against the toxic coverage the media is producing around his handling of coronavirus.

Fox Business Network has parted ways with Trish Regan less than two weeks after the primetime host controversially called Democratic criticism of President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak “yet another attempt to impeach the president.”

“We thank her for her contributions to the network over the years and wish her continued success in her future endeavors,” reads a network statement provided to The Hill. “We will continue our reduced live primetime schedule for the foreseeable future in an effort to allocate staff resources to continuous breaking news coverage on the Coronavirus crisis.”

On March 14, the network announced that Regan’s 8 p.m. EDT show, along with Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery’s 9 p.m. EDT show, were going on “hiatus” to deploy “all resources from both shows for staffing needs during critical market hours” amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Regan at the time had been under fire over her comments on Democratic criticism of Trump.

Regan, a former Bloomberg and CNBC host and reporter, also released a statement through the network regarding her departure.

“I have enjoyed my time at FOX and now intend to focus on my family during these troubled times,” she said. “I am grateful to my incredible team at FOX Business and for the many opportunities the network has provided me. I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career.” [The Hill]

Fox News has been slowly moving towards the Left and this move is just one among potential others just like it, perhaps for the same reason.
