WTF? Carlson Gone?

The news hit yesterday that d/bag Carlson is out at FOX.


Hush your mouth!

Once he left MSNBC and landed at FOX and became the d/bag I thiught he had found a home among the crazies and stupid.

But it is real.

Tucker Carlson is no longer a Fox News host, reports Mediaite. “Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the network said in a surprise statement on Monday. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.” The statement gives no reason for Carlson’s departure, and Carlson himself has not commented. It’s “shocking news,” writes CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy on Twitter. Carlson drew the network’s largest audience with his 8pm show, per the Washington Post. Last year, his Tucker Carlson Tonight averaged 3.3 million total viewers.

The network said the time slot will be filled by “rotating Fox News personalities until a new host is named.” The show will be called Fox News Tonight in the interim. The news comes less than a week after Fox agreed to pay $787.5 million to settle a defamation lawsuit brought by Dominion Voting Systems, though it’s not clear if the two developments are related. Carlson had been among the Fox hosts spreading the false narrative that the company’s voting machines were rigged. The host had long been “the source of repeated controversies and headaches for the network because of his statements on everything from race relations to L.G.B.T.Q. rights,” per the New York Times

What was the final straw that cost Carlson his gig at FOX?

A discrimination lawsuit filed by a former producer played a role in Tucker Carlson’s departure from Fox News on Monday, insiders say. Sources tell the Los Angeles Times that the decision came straight from Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch, with input from other top Fox execs, and one factor was the lawsuit filed by Abby Grossberg last month. Grossberg, who was fired and countersued by the network, alleges that she faced bullying, sexism, and antisemism after she was transferred from Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo to Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Grossberg also alleges that Fox lawyers “intimidated” her into giving misleading evidence in Dominion Voting Systems’ lawsuit, the Guardian reports. “Tucker Carlson’s departure from Fox News is, in part, an admission of the systemic lying, bullying, and conspiracy-mongering claimed by our client,” Grossberg attorney Tanvir Rahman said Monday. “Mr. Carlson and his subordinates remain individual defendants in the case and we look forward to taking their depositions under oath in the very near term.” A source tells Variety that Justin Wells, Carlson’s longtime executive producer, is also leaving Fox.

According to the Los Angeles Times‘ sources, Murdoch was also concerned about Carlson’s promotion of conspiracy theories that the Capitol riot was caused by government agents. An insider tells Mediaite that while the network claimed it had “agreed to part ways” with the host, the departure was a firing that caught Carlson and many others at Fox by surprise. In an apparent coincidence, CNN fired longtime host Don Lemon on Monday.

It was about time that this total dirt bag was called on his BS…..but do not cry for him I am sure there will be a wealth of idiot sites that will want him and his  views.

Who will step up at FOX to fill the position of idiot supreme?
