Catherine Herridge Laid Off by CBS in ‘Blood Bath’ Firing of Hundreds – She Just Reported on Biden Docs

Catherine Herridge, probably the best reporter that CBS has, as well as about 20 other CBS reporters, were let go in a blood bath firing by Paramount Global, with 800 people total losing their jobs. The Washington Bureau, where they covered national security and intelligence, was hit hard. 

The NY Post suggested there might be more than “just cost-cutting.” They note sources said Herridge “had clashed” with CBS News president Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews. 

CBS isn’t talking, according to the Post. 

Herridge just posted on X Monday about more damaging news to Joe Biden, noting that the House Oversight Committee wanted the transcript of the Hur interview with Joe Biden, and they expressed concerns about Biden retaining potentially sensitive documents related to specific countries involving his family’s foreign business dealings.

Herridge had previously reported a lot on the Biden family business dealings. 

But it looks like she won’t be following up on that — at least not with CBS.

Herridge is also heroically standing for journalistic principle. 

Herridge may soon be held in contempt of court for not divulging her source for an investigative piece she penned in 2017 when she worked for Fox News and be ordered to personally pay fines that could total as much as $5,000 a day.
A source close to the situation said Fox News is paying for Herridge’s legal counsel.

A couple of months ago, she had also reported on the possibility of a “Black Swan” event. 

Independent Journalist Michael Shellenberger called out her layoff as “cowardly” by CBS and said, “Shame on them.”

It looks like the regular liberal media is imploding between this and other media layoffs. For those who push propaganda, that’s hard to bemoan — don’t let the door hit you on the way out. But for someone like Herridge, who seems only concerned about doing her job, one hopes that this doesn’t prevent her from doing so. Perhaps that might free her up, as it has done others like Tucker Carlson, to do as she wants without any network restrictions. We shall have to see where she lands. Hopefully, somewhere where she can keep telling the truth.
