Pro-Trump journalist and Fox News contributor John Solomon has been dismissed from the network, according to a report from the Daily Caller on Friday.
Fox News has taken major strides to alienate a large portion of its conservative base, and letting Solomon go seems to confirm that the formerly conservative network wants to wash its hands of Trump and his supporters.
Solomon was hired as a Fox News contributor in October of 2019 after appearing multiple times on Sean Hannity’s show. Solomon is an award-winning journalist that spent time as executive vice president of digital video for The Hill and an executive and editor-in-chief at The Washington Times.
After Solomon refused to fall in line at The Hill during the impeachment fiasco, Solomon departed the outlet and joined Fox News. Solomon founded Just The News in January of 2020, and remained a contributor at Fox.
In July of 2020, Solomon quietly disappeared from Fox News, though he continued to make appearances on Fox Business. The last time Solomon was billed by the network as a Fox contributor in any capacity was in October of 2020.
Mainstream media outlets branded Solomon as a conspiracy theorist for his reporting exposing former Vice President Joe Biden’s activities in Ukraine amid the Democrats’ failed impeachment push, and Fox News appears to be all too willing to join their ranks.
Solomon himself has not issued a statement about his dismissal from the network as a contributor, but the Daily Caller reported that Fox News confirmed Solomon is no longer employed at the network.
