Fox Corporation experienced a loss of almost a billion dollars in market value on Monday! Why? Because the lefties at Fox News decided to sever ties with their primetime host, Tucker Carlson. This came less than a week after Fox Corporation foolishly decided to settle with Dominion Voting Systems for $787 million. Unsurprisingly, the revelation of text messages from Fox hosts criticizing Fox News management included Tucker Carlson, who was one of the network’s strongest hosts.

Tucker’s departure from Fox News has come as a major shock to viewers and industry observers alike. As one of the network’s most popular hosts, Tucker was renowned for being insightful, interesting, and ratings gold. In fact, many of his fans were so upset that the network had to turn off the comments section of their website. On a brighter note, Tucker’s departure has led to a flood of supportive and encouraging messages on Twitter, with even some talk of him potentially running for president in 2024!
Good for Tucker. Trust me, he doesn’t need them. https://t.co/NjFqqsIV4q

I whole lot of very jealous people are celebrating the Tucker news today. The problem for those people though is Tucker is going to go on to be a big success at whatever he does next.
And you’ll still be boring and unsuccessful.

Tucker Carlson will be fine. Fox News will not be fine. That's the difference. Fox needed Tucker more than he needed Fox.

Could we end up with a Glenn Beck / Tucker Carlson & Company network?

Wherever Tucker Carlson goes, America will follow!
Thank you for being one of the greatest and most powerful voices in the conservative movement.
Can’t wait to see what’s next!

What are the chances Tucker runs for president👀

Only if the “Tucker 2024” signs have not been printed yet. Keep an eye out for speeches in the Granite State. https://t.co/nPE78kMA7f

Former President Donald Trump, who had frequently appeared on Carlson’s show, expressed his shock and disappointment at the news. Trump described Tucker as a “very good person” and “very talented”. He also posted on Truth Social, a social media platform he had recently launched, lamenting Carlson’s departure as a “big blow to cable news and to America”.
Despite the outpouring of affection for Tucker, Rupert Murdoch – Chairman of Fox Corp. – decided that it was time for him to go. Even though Fox News has not provided any explanation for the sudden departure of Carlson, it is clear that the decision to remove him from their lineup came directly from Murdoch himself. As usual, the liberal elites running Fox News can’t accept any kind of criticism, especially not from a principled conservative like Tucker Carlson!
