Tucker Carlson is stepping down as Fox News host, effective immediately

Apr 24, 2023 at 6:12

Tucker Carlson is stepping down as Fox News presenter, the American channel said on Monday. Last Friday was his last show. It is unknown why he is leaving.

“Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and contributor,” Fox News said in a press release.

Carlson last hosted the Fox News Tonight live show on Friday . The program will be made with changing Fox News presenters for the time being, until a replacement is found for Carlson.

Fox News gives no reason for Carlson’s departure. The farewell comes shortly after a court ruling that the channel must pay nearly $ 800 million to voting machine manufacturer Dominion for defamation. Fox News would have been guilty of deliberately spreading lies about the US presidential election in 2020.

Fox News claimed, among other things, that Dominion’s voting machines had been used for election fraud, while the editors would have known that theory was not true. This would appear from internal communication of the channel. Carlson is said to have said in a message that he “ardently hates” former US President Donald Trump.

  1. The Kremlin will be upset at this, now their mouthpiece in the West has walked, or was pushed.

  2. I hope that we will never see this piece of dog shit on TV again. And, I hope that Fox won’t find the same sort of dog shit as a replacement.

    • Ratings will drop if they don’t give the conservative audience the conspiracy theories they want though. After all, it’s a business.

    • The Murdochs would have to have covert putler sympathies. No decent employer would hire a blatant Russian agent and keep his contract going through a hideous genocide.
      They could go one of three ways:
      1/ replace Karlsonov with another foul putlerite such as Candace “Russian lives matter”Owens or Russian speaking genocide lover Laura Ingraham.
      2/ promote Mark Levin; the only known MAGA broadcaster who supports Ukraine and correctly describes the putler regime as fascist.
      3/ hire a bland “all things to all men” type.
      I guess we will see.
      Carson needs to be in jail, but will probably turn up on some shitshow like Alex Jones, Nigel Farage, Breitbart or Newsmax.

      • I think so, too. Fuck-wad Carlson will spill his vomit in other shows, no doubt. But, at least they won’t have the audience size as Fox, I recon.

  3. I don’t know if it’s really a good news. Sometimes it’s better to keep the mad dog in his doghouse. It barks, but he’s well attached. Watch out for bully dog ​​Carlson in freestyle.

    Next? TV show with his degenerate orange master for an uninhibited Russian ball licking. Disgusting…

    • I guess you conveniently missed this part:
      “Carlson is said to have said in a message that he “ardently hates” former US President Donald Trump.”
      Those basking in their TDS only see and hear what they want to see and hear. Don’t let facts get in your way, you might cure your blindness, lol…

      • “I hate him passionately”
        We are talking about the “principled” speaker that interviewed the big orangutan only 2 weeks ago? 🙂 So he’s very passionate!

        Me, TDS? Maybe… Nevertheless, facts speak for me. And I feel more on the road to recovery than conservatives like you who see leftists behind every decision maker and can’t stand the slightest success of the “other side”. It gets a bit tiring too after a while to listen some LeftistDS. It’s time perhaps to be more bipartisan in this matter and to open the eyes on the true ennemies. Because when it’s too late, it’s too late.

      • Yeah, Trump is great!
        How can he as a fellow arsegiver hate him?

        Luckily there are people like us not suffering from TDS and see what a great guy Donald Trump is.

      • “I guess you conveniently missed this part”

        That was released a month and a half ago; didn’t keep Trump from agreeing to be interviewed by Fucker a month later. I see no reason to believe that they wouldn’t do such a show if they thought they could make a buck on it.

        A narcissist and a sycophant – a match made in heaven. 🙂

      • P.S. I guess you missed what Trump said upon hearing that Carlson got canned:

        “I was shocked. I’m surprised. He’s a very good person a very good man and very talented and he had very high ratings,” Trump said during an interview on Newsmax that aired late Monday. “He’s been terrific especially over the last year or so he’s been terrific to me.”


  4. All Tucker is doing is espousing the conservative agenda. I am not sure why everyone thinks he’s pro-Russian. He is simply pro-conservative and very anti-Biden. What easier way to attack Biden than by saying aid to Ukraine threatens America’s security and well being.

    It’s not pro-Moscow. It’s simply anti-Biden.

    Anyway, the chorus from the right that Biden is doing far too much to help Ukraine and is risking nuclear destruction by doing so isn’t going to end with Tucker’s departure.

    Let’s hope we can find some bipartisan agreement to continue to aid the fight for freedom!
