Elon Musk’s X Corp looks to hire ex-CBS correspondent Catherine Herridge to lead ‘investigative unit’

Elon Musk's X Corp is looking to tap investigative journalist Catherine Herridge to helm an investigative unit at the company, the New York Post has learned.

This comes after Herridge was controversially fired from CBS News in February as its senior investigative correspondent. Herridge was most known for her coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, and her termination generated outrage after CBS News seized her personal files.

Herridge reportedly had a meeting with X CEO Linda Yaccarino at The Jefferson Hotel in Washington, DC earlier this month, per the Post, who cited a source familiar with the matter.

X Corp wrote in a statement to the outlet: "We are in discussions with many content creators who are interested in joining X in various ways. Catherine Herridge is a great journalist who strongly supports free speech."
