The Baltimore Sun‘s television critic David Zurawik offered no professional sympathy for anyone who works at Fox News or anywhere else in the News Corp empire Saturday afternoon.

In an interview with Media Matters Radio, Zurawik added to his heavy criticism about the network for its Fox & Friends morning show running an anti-Obama ad that appeared as it was created by the Republican National Committee.

“Nobody wants to hire you, and it’s because you’ve worked at Fox,” Zurawik said. “You know, you’re working for an outlaw, rogue organization. And it can send me their ratings every goddamn five damn minutes and I still am not impressed with them as a journalistic operation. And I wouldn’t hire anybody who worked at Fox even if I knew them, because I believe they’ve been compromised.”
