The cancer of “liberalism” has grown out of control at Fox News, and one former anchor has decided she’s had enough. Kari Lake, the former co-anchor of “Hook & Lake” at Fox News affiliate KSAZ-TV, has resigned from her position that she held for 22 years.
Lake, who has long been an advocate for a “wider range of viewpoints” in the media, says she no longer felt “proud” to work as a member of the media.
“Hypocrisy, double standards, bias, misleading coverage are all commonplace in society and newsrooms,” she said.
In a video posted on Twitter, Lake announced the next step in her career: running for Governor of Arizona.

“That’s exactly what that ugliness and cancel culture and name-calling is meant to do: keep people from speaking out, getting involved and doing the right thing. If we all cower when the media, social media trolls and hateful people try to hurt us, we will never accomplish great things,” Lake said.
“I am running for Governor of Arizona because I care too deeply about this state and the wonderful people who live here to sit on the sidelines and watch us adopt the same policies that left California in shambles,” she continued.
“The Democrats around the country and in Arizona have gone CRAZY and if they win the Governor’s seat, they will turn us into California or worse. I want to see my kids remain here in Arizona … and I want my grandkids to be Arizonans. We must ensure the opportunities that brought so many of us here in the first place don’t dry up,” Lake added.
“Noem told the people of South Dakota of the risks and let them make decisions on how to protect themselves. Personal responsibility is something Americans need to get reacquainted with. Our God given and Constitutional rights have been trampled-on and it is frightening to watch. I would never force businesses, churches and schools to shut down.
Tell the people the risks, then let them decide how best to proceed.
I admire President Trump. He gave up a lot to run for office. The onslaught of criticism, dishonest and destructive reporting kept people from hearing the good things he was doing for our economy, our security, and peace around the world,” she noted of the country’s 45 president.”
Lake is not afraid to call Joe Biden and the Democrats out for their horrible policies, especially when it comes to the crisis at the border.
“Obviously what is happening at our southern border is a disaster,” she said. “Think about this, the Mexican criminal cartels are now in control of our borders. They are deciding who comes across. And when the criminal cartels are in charge that means more crime, more human trafficking, and more drugs making their way into our neighborhoods. It’s dangerous, it’s inhumane and it must stop. We need to be in charge of who comes across our border, not the cartels.”
“We are at a critical time in Arizona. I fear without a candidate who can win, we will see Arizona decline. We will have far-left Democrats in office pushing an agenda that tilts even more toward socialism,” Lake added.
