Fox News Abruptly Fires Far-Right Host Tucker Carlson

HeadlineApr 25, 2023

Fox News abruptly fired far right prime time host Tucker Carson on Monday. His departure was effective immediately. Interim presenters are replacing Carlson, who has not commented about the reason for his firing. The surprise exit of the top-rated host comes after text messages from Carlson were revealed in the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against Fox News for airing false claims of a stolen election that was just settled last week for $787 million. Later in the broadcast, we’ll look at how Tucker Carlson has been a major force driving Fox News’s extremism.
