Glenn Beck, a former host at Fox News, made a bold prediction that Fox News would be “killed” following the departure of Tucker Carlson. Beck added that losing Carlson would be a major blow to the 24-hour news network, as he is the only one that many viewers trust. Beck was shocked that Fox News would let Tucker walk out the door, highlighting the consequences of such a decision.

Fox News recently settled a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for a staggering $787.5 million to avoid going to trial. Carlson’s departure came less than a week after the settlement, leading many to speculate that the two events were connected. Carlson was a fierce critic of Dominion Voting Systems and their role in the 2020 election, and the lawsuit against him threatened to expose their shady dealings.

Beck, who left Fox News in 2011 and founded TheBlaze, invited Carlson to work with him on his network. He pointed out that the two of them could “tear it up” if they worked together. Beck has made no secret of his disdain for Fox News in recent years, claiming that the network has become too moderate and failed to uphold conservative values.
It remains to be seen what impact Carlson’s departure will have on Fox News, but Beck’s prediction suggests that the network could be in trouble. Many viewers may turn away from Fox News as a result of Carlson’s departure, leaving the network struggling to retain its audience. Whether or not Beck and Carlson will team up remains to be seen, but it could be an interesting development in the world of conservative news.
