In a seriously self-inflicted wound, Fox News has, according to a sudden flood of stories, parted ways with host Tucker Carlson. Here is the headline from the Daily Caller — the site cofounded by Tucker:
Tucker Out At Fox
And here is another from Mediaite:
BREAKING: Tucker Carlson OUT at Fox News in Shocking Shakeup
Yes, you read those headlines right. And suffice it to say that there are rumors afloat that more and more are coming as the day progresses.
And that’s just at Fox. CNN has parted ways with Don Lemon.
Here’s the statement from Fox:
NEW YORK — April 24, 2023 — 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.
Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.
FOX News Media operates the FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX News Audio, FOX News Books, the direct-to-consumer streaming services FOX Nation and FOX News International and the free ad-supported television service FOX Weather. Currently the number one network in all of cable, FNC has also been the most watched television news channel for more than 21 consecutive years, while FBN ranks among the top business channels on cable. Owned by Fox Corporation, FOX News Media reaches nearly 200 million people each month.
Without a doubt, it will take a considerable time for the dust to settle on this one.
And here’s another thought in the wake of Tucker’s parting from Fox. That would be: Is he alone? Is Fox going to part ways with other hosts? And, if so, who might those hosts be?
Tucker Carlson, C.S. Lewis, and the War Between Good and Evil
