Tucker Carlson was confronted about the Fox News vaccine mandate while on a Daily Caller show called “Save the Nation” and he didn’t quite know how to handle it. Co-host Jason Nichols mentioned to Carlson how unvaccinated employees at Fox have to submit to daily testing, which is stricter than the Biden mandate which calls for weekly testing of unvaccinated workers. Nichols point blank asked Tucker, “is Fox News denying the civil liberties of its employees by being stricter than President Biden?” Stuck in a corner, all Carlson could do was laugh and redirect the show’s co-host to ask someone else about it. Tucker went on to say, “I’m not qualified to speak for the company on this because I don’t run the company and I’m just an employee of the company.” Of course this explanation also falls flat, because Carlson doesn’t need to speak for the company in order to explain what the policy at Fox is. After rambling for a little bit longer, Tucker tried another deflection technique which was to bring up other viruses and diseases like HIV and prostate cancer and he made a slippery slope argument about employees disclosing their medical histories. Carlson should have to face this question on every media outlet he goes on for as long as he wants to badmouth vaccine mandates while ignoring the one he and his colleagues are subject to at Fox.
