Tucker Carlson is parting ways with Fox News

2 Mins read

Monday morning, Fox News announced that Tucker Carlson is departing from the network. According to a statement released by the network, they have mutually agreed to part ways with Carlson. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor,” it added.

Carlson’s last show aired on Friday, and Fox News will be featuring an interim program called Fox News Tonight, which will be hosted by rotating personalities until a new permanent host is selected. The exact reason for Carlson’s departure hasn’t been disclosed, and both parties are yet to respond to journalists or comment on the matter.

It’s worth noting that Carlson played a significant role in the $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News filed by Dominion Voting Systems, which accused the network of promoting false claims of election fraud following the 2020 presidential election.

As part of court filings, text messages and emails by Tucker Carlson and other personalities at the network were made public before the voting company recently settled with Fox News. In one of the exchanges revealed, Carlson texted a colleague expressing his desire to minimize coverage of Donald Trump, stating, “We are very, very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights. I truly can’t wait.”

According to The Washington Post, he added, “I hate him passionately.” The date of the text exchange was January 4, 2021, just two days prior to the violent storming of the US Capitol by pro-Trump supporters who sought to prevent the certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election victory. The rioters had been led to believe, without credible evidence, that the election had been rigged against Trump — a falsehood perpetuated by numerous conservatives.

In March, another exchange was made public in which Tucker Carlson wrote, “We’re all pretending we’ve achieved a lot with Trump, but let’s face it, it’s been a disaster. Admitting this truth is difficult to accept.”

Carlson’s private messages are part of a large collection of under-oath testimony and private conversations among Fox News executives and hosts that Dominion cited as evidence in its complaint. Dominion claimed that Fox News had propagated a false narrative of election fraud in order to benefit its own commercial interests, causing significant harm to Dominion in the process. In response, Fox News filed a counterclaim, asserting that Dominion had selectively quoted Fox News personalities and taken their comments out of context.
