“Tucker Carlson’s last week at Fox News coincided with the network agreeing to pay Dominion Voting Systems more than $787.5 million to settle a lawsuit.
And some are speculating Carlson’s abrupt departure might have much to do with it.
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” Fox News announced in a statement Monday. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.
There was no immediate explanation from Fox about why Carlson was leaving, but the timing coincided with the settlement with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million — roughly half of the $1.6 billion sought.
Carlson became the network’s most popular personality after replacing Bill O’Reilly in the primetime lineup in 2016.
Fox agreed last week to pay Dominion Voting Systems around $787.5 million, admitting “certain claims” it made during former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election challenge were false.
The reporting mostly concerned other Fox News programs, not Carlson’s, but his name did come up during the case, primarily because of email and text messages that were revealed as part of the lawsuit.
Carlson and other Fox hosts were caught in private messages doubting their own network’s allegations about Dominion’s role in the supposed election fraud, while also being concerned Fox was losing audience among Trump fans to competitors including Newsmax.” ( Courtesy Newsmax.com)
Fox News has cooked the goose that laid the Golden Eggs.
Why in the world would you fire the host and end a television program that averaged 3 million viewers?
Marshall McLuhan wrote that
The media is the message.
Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.
And, unfortunately, thanks to the influence of the Liberal daughter-in-laws of Rupert Murdoch, Fox News began overcompensating to the Left in keeping its programming “fair and balanced”.
This led to daily diatribes from Juan Williams, Shep Smith, Donna Brazile, and Chris Wallace which made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.
Then came the night of the 2020 Presidential Election.
Fox News stripped away its veneer of “Fair and Balanced” to join CNN and MSNBC as servants of the Democratic Party
Then, they eagerly jumped to declare demented old Joe Biden the President-Elect of the United States of America, when they knew that the election was being contested in court by President Donald J. Trump.
And after that, they have banned Former President Donald J. Trump from the network for contesting the 2016 Presidential Election and not acting like the Professional Politicians whom I like to call “Vichy Republicans”.
And now, within just a few days, Trump Supporters Conservative Hosts Dan Bongino and Tucker Carlson are no longer employed by Fox News.
Sean Hannity? Laura Ingraham? Maria Bartiromo?
They may as well hire the unwatchable Shepherd Smith back while they are at it.
You had better watch it, Major Pete Hegseth,
Fox News will probably fire you soon.
Fox News has turned their back on and succeeded in alienating their loyal fans who made them into the News Juggernaut that they are.
It most certainly was not Far Left Democrats.
It was average Conservative Americans.
So, Paul Ryan and you other turncoats at Fox News…what happens when your ratings start to plummet?
Perhaps CNN will give you one of their two viewers.
As Popeye would say,
“Tsk. Tisk. How embarrasskin’.”
Until He Comes,
