Tucker’s Goodbye Video Before Trump Got Him Fired Leaks

It has been noted that Tucker Carlson, the top-rated host at Fox News has decided to part ways with the network.



Tucker Carlson departs Fox News

The abrupt departure of the controversial prime-time figure comes a week after Fox News reached a $787.5 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems over the network’s promotion of former President Donald Trump’s false 2020 election claims.

That bombshell settlement which is the biggest media payout in history prompted many to question if Fox Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch would make major changes at the network.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the network said in a statement Monday morning. “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.”

Carlson found himself embroiled in serious controversy throughout his time at Fox News. He has long had tensions with Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott, who struggled to control the top rated host who regularly defied fact-checkers and aired content that once prompted the New York Times to declare it “the most racist show in the history of cable news.”

“She’s not the biggest fan of what he does,” an industry source told me of the relationship between Scott and Carlson. “But he gets viewers, and that’s why he has a direct relationship with Lachlan and Rupert.”

Carlson often defiantly flouted facts from his powerful perch. He continued to promote the conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump. His bizarre coverage of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol prompted searing rebukes from Republicans in the Senate. His promotion of the Ray Epps conspiracy theory has been widely condemned.
