Tucker Carlson is Out at Fox News?


Right wing agitator Tucker Carlson is leaving Fox News immediately, the cable network announced Monday. This is a complete shock and no details are available right now. Tucker Carlson is also the Editor in Chief of The Daily Caller. 

The announcement came days after Fox News parent company settled the Dominion Voting System defamation lawsuit for $787.5 million.


Carlson’s final show aired Friday

In a statement released by Fox News, it said: 

“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.”

Well, that was informative!


Twitter of course had a great deal to say:



Will there be more slicing and dicing at Fox? More firings to come? Should anyone remain?  Where will Tucker Carlson and his voice land?


Here’s the UPDATE – 

Per the LA Times, the removal of Carlson from Fox was prompted by Rupert Murdoch with input from the board members and other Fox executives.  One of the main reasons for the ouster, the unnamed source said was the lawsuit from the producer of Tucker Carlson’s show, Abby Grossman, who said she was coerced by the Fox lawyers to give false testimony on the Dominion lawsuit among others.
