Times: “The internal tensions [at Fox] had frustrated Mr. Smith, 55, who was dismayed at the disconnect between some of the pro-Trump cheerleading in prime-time and the reporting produced by the network’s newsroom, according to two people close to the anchor who requested anonymity to share his private observations.

“Mr. Smith had been considering an exit from Fox News for several weeks, [sources] said.”
