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

"Catherine Herridge is a great journalist who strongly supports free speech," said X Corp.

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."

X has been attempting to assemble a high-profile roster of journalists to bring to its platform, allowing former mainstream media journalists the opportunity to report the truth without their freedom of speech being stifled by corporate censors. The company hired Tucker Carlson, a former Fox News anchor, and the platform would allow Herridge to report on a variety of stories of her own free will similar to Carlson's agreement. 

However, the source did not confirm if the investigative journalist would officially join X, and told the outlet, "Herridge is weighing a number of opportunities."

Herridge has made her way into national headlines since her February firing. She is also embroiled in legal trouble after a federal judge held her in civil contempt last month for refusing to reveal her sources about an investigative report regarding a Chinese American scientist who had been investigated by the FBI.
