Tucker Carlson Takes “Vacation” Days After Chief Writer Resigned over Racist Posts

HeadlineJul 14, 2020

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has announced he is taking what he described as a “long-planned vacation.” This comes just days after Carlson’s chief writer, Blake Neff, resigned following revelations that he had attacked Asian Americans, African Americans and women for years in highly offensive racist language in anonymous online messages. On Monday night, Carlson claimed Neff’s online activity had nothing to do with his show, even though Neff was his chief writer. Carlson also attacked his critics, describing them as “ghouls.” We’ll have more on the story later in the broadcast.
