Tucker Carlson has been fired by Fox News. He’s been punished for being a cause of the company’s embarrassing $787 million lawsuit judgement won by Dominion Voting.
Maria Bartiromo may be next. Sean Hannity should be looking over his shoulder, too, Fox News is about to go through a sea change of major proportions!
Carlson — it was shown in depositions — knowingly lied about the 2020 election being stolen. His lies were nightly and they have been for years.
Rupert Murdoch obviously approved this monumental change since Carlson’s show is number 1 on Fox News. It’s amazing. It was only two weeks ago that Carlson, the chief conspiracy theorist, was interviewing Donald Trump. But Carlson had been quoted as privately criticizing Trump. Is Murdoch making this decision for Trump or against him? Time will tell.
Here’s the statement from Fox News:
FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.
Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.
FOX News Media operates the FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX News Audio, FOX News Books, the direct-to-consumer streaming services FOX Nation and FOX News International and the free ad-supported television service FOX Weather. Currently the number one network in all of cable, FNC has also been the most watched television news channel for more than 21 consecutive years, while FBN ranks among the top business channels on cable.
