Second Fox News reporter exits this month: ‘Unhappy with the tone of the conversation’

Fox News is down another seasoned reporter after news emerged that longtime correspondent Adam Housley would be leaving the network. The story was first reported in Politico late Thursday evening.

In their report Politico said that Housley, who had been with Fox News since 2001, was increasingly displeased by the growing prominence of pro-Trump opinion content.

“He’s not doing the type of journalism he wants to be doing,” a person familiar with the situation told the website. “And he is unhappy with the tone of the conversation of the channel.”

On Twitter Housley didn’t go out of his way to shoot down that reporting, but instead lamented the “sad world we live in” which made his departure so “political.”

Both Housley and Fox News did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

If the Politico report is true, it would be the second time in a month that Fox News’ news division has been rocked by an unhappy departure. As TheWrap previously reported, Conor Powell left the network’s Jerusalem bureau over similar reasons.

Powell was “uncomfortable with the direction of the news organization in recent months. Fewer news shows. More opinion shows. Less resources for reporters to report,” a person familiar with the matter told TheWrap at the time who also noted that “lots of reporters are very unhappy with directions of FNC right now.”

Powell himself declined to comment for TheWrap and only addressed his resignation in a cryptic Facebook at the time

“Those of you who have spoken to me in recent months will understand why I am leaving FNC,” he said.
