Apparently Tucker Carlson is out at Flux News. Don’t know if you’d heard about it.
CNN also cut Don Lemon loose. Neither of their dismissals caused me to lose much sleep.
If you believe the official party line (which I don’t) the story is everyone parted ways after contributing greatly to their respective journalistic “families.” We’ll probably never know all the details until Tuck Tuck and Don write their respective books but one thing seems sure – a lot of people are not happy and the “Fox Nation” of angry uncles you couldn’t invite for Thanksgiving is having a collective aneurism.
Personally I feel these moves are good for the country, a welcome removal of talking heads who attracted off-base audiences for all the wrong reasons.
Fox shelled out $787 million to settle its lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems – a financial admission they knowingly lied and had been routinely lying about the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Texts and emails from Carlson and other Foxy “journalists” proved that the company knew it was lying to keep their rabid viewers from leaving and The Pillow Boy paying for his insane ads.
With these revelations, it’s no wonder Faux News is losing (allegedly) viewers and the stranglehold it once had on conservatives. And that, I believe, is a good thing and reason for America to celebrate.
Their nonsense has been allowed to go on far enough.
