Jane Hall, associate professor in the School of Communication at American University, was a contributor to the network for 11 years and a frequent guest on The O’Reilly Factor and Fox News Watch. Hall stated that part of the reason she left was because of how “scary” Glenn Beck is, in addition to the partisan bias in the form of fewer debates.

HALL: No, I didn’t. The reason I left was in part because they’ve had less debates than they used to. It is a fair point to say how much debate is there on MSNBC? How many Republican strategists? We have a bifurcation of the media.

KURTZ: Wait a second. The reason you left is because you feel they have less debate than they used to. In other words, it used to be Hannity and Colmes, now it’s just Hannity. It used to be Bernie and Jane. Now it’s just Bernie.

HALL: I think there’s less debate than there was. And I’m also, frankly, uncomfortable with Beck, who I think should be called out as somebody whose language is way over the top. And it’s scary.

KURTZ: Was that a factor in your decision to leave Fox?

HALL: Yes, it was.
