Why Fox News Ousted Tucker Carlson
In a shocking announcement on Monday, Fox News and its most virulent white supremacist host Tucker Carlson parted ways. Carlson had enjoyed the popular platform for decades and had a solo slot since 2016. He was not permitted to bid his audience farewell. His firing by Fox came just days after the outlet settled a massive defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems to the tune of $787.5 million.
