Radio shock-jock Howard Stern savaged Chris Wallace’s decision to leave longtime network Fox News for lefty-network CNN’s new paid streaming service.

“I gotta tell ya: people don’t watch CNN, who the hell is going to pay for CNN+? Are they out of their mind? CNN+, I mean what is that? Regular CNN isn’t enough?” Stern questioned. “Good luck being seen on that thing, I mean I like Chris Wallace, but I’m not paying a monthly service fee.”

“What are they going to put on CNN+ to get someone to pay?” he continued. “Maybe they’ll take the [Andrew and Chris] Cuomo brothers and have them talk p-–y unedited. The world is so f–ked up.”

After nearly two decades with Fox News, Wallace announced his exit on-air during his final turn as anchor on “Fox News Sunday” last weekend.

“After 18 years, this is my final ‘Fox News Sunday,'” Wallace said. “But after 18 years, I have decided to leave Fox. I wanna try something new, to go beyond politics to all the things I’m interested in. I’m ready for a new adventure and I hope you’ll check it out.”

“I always thought he was a level-headed guy. The guy actually pulled it off. I used to watch him on Fox News and go, ‘How does he put up with this sh*t?’” Stern remarked. 

CNN announced he would be joining their upcoming streaming service, CNN+ when it launches in 2022. Stern believes Fox News is upset about Wallace’s departure, but probably did not offer him the type of money CNN+ did. 

“He was on Fox News for 18 years, I’m sure they’re pissed because they were pretty loyal to him. They probably weren’t coming up with the dough re mi. I mean they probably offered him some good money,” Stern suggested.

“Maybe he said to himself, ‘They just had Jeffrey Toobin jerking off on a zoom meeting, and they didn’t really fire him, so that’s probably a good place to work. You can jerk off on your zoom and not get fired.’ I think he saw an opportunity,” he joked.
