Trump’s Fox Fave Tucker Carlson Goes Fishing After Lead Writer Resigns over Racist Online Comments

The lead writer for President Trump’s favorite Fox News TV show, Tucker Carlson Tonight — the most popular cable show in history — has resigned for posting disturbing racist and misogynist messages to an online forum under a pseudonym.

Now Tucker Carlson says he’s going on vacation, and his advertisement blocks “are a wasteland,” says Matt Gertz, a senior fellow at Media Matters, where he documents the relationship between Fox News and the Trump administration.
