A trust fund baby millionaire pretending to be the everyman. Couldn't have happened to a more fitting person. At least he's got his multi-million dollar trust fund to fall back on.

Lock him up for crimes against the truth.

Good riddance with your "replacement theory", idolatry of Orban, and yourdownplaying of the Jan 6 insurrection, you won't be missed.

Tucker used to call out others as "elites", yet he himself was one. His stepmother was the queen of frozen foods and enormously wealthy.

Trump people will just follow Tucker on Tucker radio. He has no problems.

-1 ( +7 / -8 )

Maybe he can find a spot on RT.

Putin would be willing to pay top ruble for a master propagandist, I’m sure.

lol. lmao, even.

How do our right wingers explain this? Is Fox News now “woke” or is Tucker a joke? Who can say?

16 ( +24 / -8 )

Exactly....all the Trump party have is woke. Proof: Look at the stupid war Desantis picked with Disney and Disney is making Desantis look stupid. Does the Trump party have any (and I do mean any) meaningful policy?

Meanwhile, CNN axed its own embattled anchor, Don Lemon, part of a one-day bloodletting in cable television news.

poor Don gets one sentence.

-8 ( +10 / -18 )

He’ll be ok, because now he can say whatever he wants without restraint, so in the end that might be a better move for him going forward. When I heard the news I wasn’t that surprised, hope he goes to Newsmax. Wherever he goes that will help the network, not worried.

-13 ( +11 / -24 )

Fox said that the network and Carlson had “agreed to part ways” but it offered no explanation for the stunning move, saying that the last broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” aired last Friday.

Caison and Lemon's almost simultaneous exits are a great metaphor for the duopoly rope a dope.

For real journalism you couldn't miss with someone like Chris Hedges, yet he rarely reaches the mainstream.

Comrade Carlson gets his comeuppance....

I'm sure all the MAGA-members here are ecstatic - the guy that said he "hated Trump with a passion" in private, then hoodwinked them all by fawning all over him in public has been banished from Faux News...

Good 'ole Fox, whose new slogan is "We Deceive, You Believe"...

Tucker was basically fired for his April 19th monologue. It's actually quite well worth watching this. People might be surprised to find they agree with much of what he has to say.

-12 ( +5 / -17 )

I am sure Russia wouldn’t turn down a Lord Haw-Haw.

The fact you mentioned a specific monologue, without mentioning what it was about, or providing a link tells me everything I need to know.

12 ( +17 / -5 )

For example, that he hates Trump passionately.

For example, that he hates Trump passionately.

The average voter doesn’t care, they’re not voting for a President based on what the pundit thinks. He hates Trump or loves Trump, good for him, at least he’s not a bot.

Tonight on Hannity…

Biden forced Fox to fire Tucker Carlson

Compare the opportunities Tucker now has compared to poor Don Lemon.

Tucker will only increase in power and relevance without being muzzled by Fox.

Win/win.

-10 ( +8 / -18 )

Not a bot. He's a phony who tells his audience what they want to hear, even if it's false.

7 ( +12 / -5 )

When I heard the news I wasn’t that surprised,

But just last week you were so proud that he had the bigliest ratings. It must be a crushing disappointment.

Wherever he goes that will help the network, not worried.

Why did fox fire him? He wasn’t helping them?

Limitless possibilities for a preppy white guy who will say anything for a buck.

Tucker will only increase in power and relevance without being muzzled by Fox.

lol Nah.

The price of the Dominion $800 million suit. Can work for Trunth Social or become a YouTuber.

"But his on-air rhetoric was in dramatic opposition to private sentiments he shared with colleagues, in which he professed to “passionately” hate Trump and yearn for the end of his presidency. Those private communications, which were released as part of Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation lawsuit against Fox News, showed how Carlson struggled to publicly support the president’s false voter-fraud theories that he privately scoffed at."

The fact you mentioned a specific monologue, without mentioning what it was about, or providing a link tells me everything I need to know.

OK. It was about Robert F. Kennedy announcing his candidacy to be the Democratic Party nominee for 2024, and the way this was covered by mainstream media outlets.

I think you meant "The average MAGA voter doesn't care". Normal people take offense to getting lied to and played for fools.

It's clear from their defense of Fox and their anchors who openly lied to them, that MAGA viewers don't want the truth - they want the lies.

They want their alt-reality world re-affirmed for them - even if it is all fiction and fantasy.

The problem is that when reality intrudes, like in the 2020 election, they "can't handle the truth" and resort to crazed conspiracy theories and violence.

And still do to this day.

14 ( +18 / -4 )

i guess there is actually a cost, a non-monetary one thus far, for being a habitual lying sycophant and an race bating bigot.

11 ( +14 / -3 )

Ah, so they’ve landed on “Fox News, which I loved passionately for my entire life until 20 minutes ago, is actually a woke fake news org that muzzles its reporters”. Okay.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

t's clear from their defense of Fox and their anchors who openly lied to them, that MAGA viewers don't want the truth - they want the lies.

Consider please home many of these same Tucker Carlson viewers hang on every word of two thousand or more year old religious fairy tales as the absolute unvarnished truth.

It must be a special day when we get the secondary alter ego instead of the original.

The sacking came directly from Murdoch himself and it was instant.

I do not like this guy. But to be fair, he does not like trump as much as most of America.

There seems to be some kind of cloak of deceptive integrity hanging over people like Carlson that makes people unable to see his otherwise transparent duplicity. Either that or his audience is simply credulous. It's scary they can vote.

Not a bot. He's a phony

Neither. He's an entertainer.

If people were critical nobody would waste their money on half the products being sold today. Look at the lies from companies selling things that people fall for every single day. My grandmother used to believe "professional" wrestling wasn't a staged show. Nothing you could tell her would convince her otherwise. Look how many people buy the National Enquirer. Nothing but fabrications but some people believe every word. Donald Trump more than most pollies know how to compose a sales pitch and sell crap to gullible souls stupid enough to believe him. Same for Tucker Carlson and the rest of that mob. They are just the National Enquirer on TV.

Good to see someone catch consequences for lying in exchange for money. More of this, please!

Compare the opportunities Tucker now has compared to poor Don Lemon.

Yeah, because that’s worked out so well for Billy O and Glenn Beck.

Seems that being caught admitting that you were lying about conspiracy theories and politicians you were mocking in private isn’t a CV booster. Maybe even worse than being a serial sexual predator and an overall nut job obsessed with the hidden (fake) machinations of a cabal of “globalists.”

Don't think being an agent of Russian propaganda is a real booster either.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

Oh finally some talk about poor Don Lemon. RIP.

-12 ( +4 / -16 )

Yeah this story isn’t about Don Lemon. And Don Lemon isn’t even that good of an anchor. And apparently CNN asked him to come to a meeting but then he just quit on Twitter, the social media platform owned by the world’s most obvious virgin? Okay. Weird move, but he did it.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

lol Nope. Nice try, though.

Yes, it was. At about the 7:30 mark there are excerpts of RFK Jr.'s speech in which he announces his candicacy, and then excerpts of hatchet-job reporting of this on CNN and MSNBC.

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

Traditional media like Fox has been pummelled by the likes of FAANG anyway, their power is as good as air brakes on turtles now, loosing people, money is just part n parcel of being a dinosaur facing extinction.

Seriously, why rely on 'editorial power' (what's left of it) when businesses have direct access to customer's data. The likes of Fox can't see the average ISP hoovering metadata, eating Fox's lunch & dinner, how can they help you sell stuff?

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Lemon got what he deserved

Yep. A diva and a bore (the latter being a career killer), but at least he never trafficked in lies he knew to be false and racist tropes about whites being “replaced.”

5 ( +9 / -4 )

Don't think being an agent of Russian propaganda is a real booster either.

Unfortunately among many conservative Americans supporting Russia is a booster. Those Americans who pine for a white aryan "christian" (excuse me while I swallow my vomit) Amerika that suppresses non-christians anyone who is not a strutting heterosexual look up to the little man from Russia as their idol. That is how sick the American right has become.

11 ( +14 / -3 )

Hm, let’s see…; he’s the most influential conservative media personality in the country and his show averaged nearly three million viewers per night, far more than any other on cable…; I think this is bad for Fox… and good for Carlson but [Tucker Carlson had become even bigger than Fox News,” said Brian Stelter…]…; Brian (smart guy) has a point.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

He’ll be ok, because now he can say whatever he wants without restraint,

Ok, Bass. I guess the MAGA crowd will all be listening.

The average voter doesn’t care, they’re not voting for a President based on what the pundit thinks.

Oh, I guess they won't be after all. Despite tuning in in their millions and relying on TC as probably their main source of "news", they don't care what the lying neo-fascist thinks after all. I think that's for the best.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Lemon got what he deserved

Yep. A diva and a bore (the latter being a career killer), but at least he never trafficked in lies he knew to be false and racist tropes about whites being “replaced.”

That much is true, but the comment about a when a woman is past her prime was unacceptable. As we used to say in the Navy, one awshucks (our word was a bit saltier) cancels all attaboys"

Ok, those were his past statements and he changed a lot of his thinking after more drip drip of information what was coming out of J6 the election and Twitter files and the fired exec testimonies and the interview with Musk changed his thinking a lot and then he realized that maybe Trump isn’t wrong and the more he kept uncovering all the coverups from the Dems and scandals it was getting a bit too much for Lachlan. Not surprised.

Anyway he will go to another fascist channel and keep entertained the same horde of far right gun lover sheep..

Someone above mentioned Comrade Carlson could now go work for the Russians - which I think was satire.

Looks more like an accurate prediction; "Tucker Carlson received an offer from Russian state media after Fox News announced it would part ways with the longtime host on Monday.

"Hey @TuckerCarlson, you can always question more with @RT_com," RT tweeted.

https://www.newsweek.com/tucker-carlson-gets-offer-russia-state-media-1796379

Given his admiration for Putin, I'd bet he'll take it.

The frantic and repetitive responses of the usual suspects tell me that what Tucker was saying must have been right on target and quite problematic to the narrative.

he can get more people on Rumble or on Twitter subscribers than on cable TV in 2023. Interested to hear what an unchained Tucker has to say. Future looks bright unlike Don L.

The Trump/GOP supporters are well and truly shellshocked by the sacking of their mascot boy.

After the 800,000,000 green mess Carlson and co left behind, Murdoch had to flush the Fox toilet in a futile attempt to clean up his act. Trouble is, as the orange blimp is wont to whine, once won't be enough and the stink will linger as long as the toxic nonagenarian "Lizard of Oz" feeds on the green stuff.

Wow, maybe Fox is actually thinking about becoming a real 'news' network! More likely Fox knows that Carlson is going to cost them dearly in the other upcoming cases against Fox.

His alleged casual use of the C-word cost him his C-sweet access?

His rampant anti-Semitic rants?

His white nationalist snark?

His cozying up to fascists?

Anti-vaxx lunacy?

His “If you give a mouse a cookie” “logic”?

His creepy laugh?

We may never know as he didn’t even get to say goodbye. Faux just chucked him out on his scrawny white butt.

Keep on Trucking Carlson.

The “60 Minutes” report Sunday was about Raymond Epps, a former Marine and Trump supporter from Arizona who was in Washington on Jan. 6, 2021. 

I am quite sure Tucker was planning to destroy that BS segment on 60 minutes about Ray Epps and I’m quite sure they wouldn’t let him- so he walked.

if Epps was a “Trump supporter” he would be in jail. The FBI told 60 minutes he wasn’t their asset. After declining to answer the same question under oath to Congress.

-13 ( +4 / -17 )

At least there were no sour grapes from Tucker. Unlike CNN which squeezed a Lemon off its nerwork.

It’s a well known method of coping; when life gives you lemons make 6 posts about Don Lemon in a story with a tucker headline about tucker getting fired.

5 ( +11 / -6 )

I don't think this firing signals any major shift in Fox's business model - i.e., going after the low-IQ MAGA voter.

I do think the purge will continue - and would bet Maria Bartiromo is next to get shown the door, with more to follow - likely Jeanne Pirro.

Rupert likes money - and the three-fourths of a billion dollar judgment really hurt - he is not going to risk losing any more in the additional trials upcoming.

Hannity, Ingraham, et al have to be wetting their pants.

When Carlson’s exit was announced during a live showing of the ABC daytime talk show “The View” on Monday, the studio audience applauded. Host Ana Navarro then led the crowd in a singalong to a line from the song, “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.”

What the…; lmao / smh…;

excuse me but that’s just embarrassing… (in one way or another, Carlson’s gonna keep influencing the minds of millions of Americans).

I'd say "good riddance", but I feel he's probably going to make his own network/show, or move on to a show with even less restrictions than Fox, which is bottom of the barrel already. Will miss the constant pointing out of his SOG in comedy shows.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

At least we can point to this as a direct consequence of the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit having an effect at Fox. Fox didn't have to apologise, but sacking Tucker is damage control.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Tucker signed off his last show on Friday with; “That’s it for us for the week, we’ll be back.... We’ll be back on Monday — in the meantime have the best weekend with the ones you love. See you then!”

How fitting that he ends his last show with one more lie to his audience.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Ok, those were his past statements 

All statements are past statements.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Yep. A diva and a bore (the latter being a career killer)

What are you talking about? He was fired for low ratings and misogyny. At the end of the day, Lemon shaped the minds of most commenting here that all Republicans and police are racist and the 2020 riots were peaceful, overexaggerated and deserved. His impact was enormous for the Left.

0 ( +4 / -4 )

The narrative Fox network, the one that voiced what racists/misogynists/homophobes/xenophobes were saying in private, spread to an audience who survive on lies. Didn't want facts. Didn't want to critical think. Fox gave them a national outlet to listen to their own takes and lies.

Those lies are catching up with them. Dominion. Now Carlson. It's funny how the supporters say they'll make up the Dominion money, without a word on what the lies mean. Carlson leaving is the same thing. None of the base can admit the blatant lies leading to a narrative devoid of facts and truth leading to support of what are terrible qualities of humanity. Trump stuff. Name calling. Support of white supremacy and conspiracy theory.

It's onto some other network, for them, I'd imagine. Carlson in private emails hates Trump. He's a bad one, anyways, so he's gone...good is the new right take.

But lies will catch up there, as well. Conservatives need to take a look at the real reason they don't get any respect, which are the lies to support their narrative.

Talk the truth. Find information. Want to critical think? Sure, then we can have discourse. Until then, like Carlson and the Dominion case, Fox and Carlson were a national outlet for cognitive dissonance. Maybe they learn. Doubt it.

Interesting what Tucker's fellow Fox employees are saying about his firing;

“Pure joy,” one Fox reporter told Rolling Stone of their reaction to the split. “No one is untouchable. It’s a great day for America"

“It was a good move to part ways with Tucker,” added a producer. “He knowingly spread lies throughout his time at Fox"

“Good riddance,” said a network correspondent."

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/tucker-carlson-no-longer-fox-154155412.html

Looks like its just not "Libs" that are glad he's been banished.

I emphasize ‘serious’ and ‘intelligent’ here.

Lemon didnt cost his network 787million, next up Smartmatic, theyve stated they wont settle for that amount

Yeah, liberals need to take a break from the online sites that trail in gossip.

why do they need to they just look at the courts where Maga and FOX keep losing bigly

because now he can say whatever he wants without restraint, 

actually he wont, if he lies or defames a private company or individual then hell be sued accordingly, ask

Alex Jones how it turned out for him

The fact that so much heartburn is triggered and they are such a big news topic is a sign of how skewed priorities are and what a basket case the US is now.

Unlike Tucker with his fake election claims and Trump supporters, and mascot boy, Lemon was never a liberal poster boy.

When your boss tells people "We've agreed to 'part ways'." you have been fired.

There are rumors that his co-workers are so giddy with glee (apparently, Tuck wasn't the easiest entitled white nepo baby to work with. Go figure.) that there may occur some amount to alcohol-induced procreation in the coming hours.

And it turns out he spoke derisively of management (and women, and minorities, and immigrants and....) in his not so private office interactions.

Bad mouthing the boss. Now THERE'S a career-booster!

Lemon certainly never was a liberal poster boy.

Reporting the same false news needs to be a crime. Retractions mandated within 3 days with the same amount of time spent on the retraction as on the false story.

Wouldn't surprise me to see sicko Carlson backing in slimy lil' dwarf Ron deSantis in the upcoming primary. It is well established through the Dominion case that Carlson despises Trump - "I hate him passionately" were his words. I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

Carlson and Jones. Two fakes don't make a right.

No, you meant, Jones The View and Joe and Mika, that sounds about right.

Ahh, I see now why NPR has a grudge against him, he was critical of the network for many years, yeah, not surprised.

Tucker Carlson was fired directly by a memo from Murdoch himself. Can't write this stuff just like Roger Ailes was fired for sexual harassment.

"Fox News Staffers Celebrate Tucker Carlson’s Departure: ‘Pure Joy’"

Even his own staffers are happy to see him go. That's telling.

Yahoo News??? Then you might as well post articles from Alex Jones if that's the case.

It's an article from Rolling Stone carried on Yahoo. If you had bothered to look this would have been readily evident.

And I don't really think a MAGA-ite should be referencing Alex Jones.....

Corporate funded right wing media culture warriors only get cancelled when their cost exceeds their utility.

As decided by their corporate masters.

Carlson seemed to have reached his limit for New Corp.

It is just good business.

They parted ways, he wasn't fired, Bill O'Reilly was fired, big difference.

If you ever held a regular job, you’d understand he was fired.

Oh, here we go....lol

No surprise you find sexual assault humorous!

Faux didn’t fire tucky for his bigotry and lies, those qualities are a pre-requisite for joining them.

They parted ways, he wasn't fired, Bill O'Reilly was fired, big difference.

Oh, he was absolutely fired.

On Friday he signed off with "That's all for us this week. See you on Monday."

Monday came and Tucker was in his office and informed that he was being taken off the air.

So to sum up, Tucker left on Friday intending to return on Monday.

Tucker shows up on Monday ready to go to work.

Tucker is informed by management that he no longer has a show. It was not his decision.

He was fired.

I know that logic and facts are hard, but that doesn't make them less accurate or true.

Which Murdoch technically doesn't have the right to do, can he do it, of course, ethically and journalistically if that was the case then he has clearly interfered in blurring the lines between politics and the freedom of the press first amendment.

Well, that's ok, he can just go somewhere else where they will uphold his first amendment rights to do his job.

Who owns Fox News?

The Murdoch family.

And who is the chairman?

Rupert Murdoch

The chairman can fire whoever he wants to.

Trying to salvage something from the ruins?

I think Tucker Carlson and Alex Jones to start a YouTube channel.

Freedom of the press only applies when it involves Fox News.

Failed humor attempt, hmmm.

Not at all, hit bull’s eye!

No, but just have some respect, you can do that without liking the person. I hate Biden, but you need to have some decorum. Not hard to do.

The MAGA world might respect hate spewing, pedophile loving pathological liars, the rest of the world doesn’t!!!

So he doesn't have the right and can do it? Makes sense. It's his company and Tucker worked for him, so of course he can.

ethically and journalistically if that was the case then he has clearly interfered in blurring the lines between politics and the freedom of the press first amendment.

If there's one thing Foxnews is known for it's having high ethical standards! lol

It's hard to tell which you know less about: employment law or the 1st Amendment?

Start with the latter. The 1st Amendment is to protect against GOVERNMENT restriction of speech. Any private employer is free to have reasonable restrictions on what is said in their workplace. (That means you cannot throw around the C-word as Tucker allegedly did and just say "Free Speech!").

In any event, defamation and provable lies are not protected by the 1st Amendment, which as any 1st semester law student can tell you, does not apply here.

And in regards to employment, No media company would fire a host "just because." There are any number of employment clauses and covenants that give the employer the right to fire the employee if certain conditions are met. Sexual harassment, insubordination, a hostile work environment, defamation, (I could go on...) are all valid causes of termination.

So in summary: Tucker was fired, for cause. And no, his 1st Amendment rights were not infringed.

First Amendment rights don't exist when you work for a company. Trying foul mouthing your boss and claiming your First Amendment rights.

Good riddance. Not that I'm going to suddenly start watching FOX News, but getting rid of Tucker Carlson is like a ship ditching an anchor to stay afloat. Pun intended.

I still remember when Jon Stewart put him in his place on Crossfire. I knew TC was bad then.

Tucker has not been fired by every major cable news network!

The triple-crown of being a jerk!

Well done, Tucky.

There are a bunch of lawsuits heading tuckers way and the firing was foux’s way of protecting their meager cash reserves.

The smartmatic lawsuit is going to be devastating and bankruptcy seems to be a very real option.

Newsmax and OAN also have similar exposure without the cash, they are roast!

Yeah, the libs keep saying this, so then that means, it probably isn't happening.

The smartmatic lawsuit is going to be devastating and bankruptcy seems to be a very real option.

They have deep pockets, they will be fine, seems the business is now more important than journalistic integrity.

Newsmax and OAN also have similar exposure without the cash, they are roast!

But they can get it, remember, rich people, have the ability to move their money.
