(Congress Report) – While popular conservative pundit Tucker Carlson has not made any sort of public comment about the severing of his relationship with Fox News, as of this writing anyway, a brand new report has popped up stating that he believes his being forced out of his position at the company was part of a multi-pronged attack against the network.
Jack Davis of The Western Journal discusses this report by reminding readers that Carlson, who was pulling in three million viewers on average a night, had his program cut out of the blue on Monday morning.
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” Fox News commented in a statement announcing the host’s departure from the network. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”
“According to Vanity Fair, Carlson has told people he believes his show was killed and he was fired because the Murdoch family plans to sell Fox News. The report cited sources it did not name,” Davis wrote. “Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch has made his son, Lachlan, the CEO of Fox Corp., the parent of Fox News.”
Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott called Carlson on Monday Morning and informed him that his highly successful program was being yanked and that his company email was shut down. Why in the world would such a successful show, which had become a massive money maker for the network, suddenly be pulled off the air? This makes no sense from a business standpoint. Even if you disagree with a lot of the material Carlson covered and his analysis of that information, it would be stupid to lose all that cash.
Carlson allegedly told those around him that Scott did not offer any explanation for the decision, going on to tell him that it was made “from above,” as per Vanity Fair.
It then went on to say that as of last week, Carlson was very confident that his current contract was close to being renewed through 2029. Another article from The New York Times stated that both Rupert Murdoch and Suzanne Scott made the decision to fire Carlson together.
The Times piece remarked that the popular primetime host faced “a growing list of troubles inside the network related to his conduct on and off the air, some of which had been grating on Lachlan Murdoch.” It cited “two people with knowledge of the company’s decision” as its source.
The Washington Post alleges that Paddy Manning, who wrote a book about Lachlan Murdoch, asserted that Murdoch was the impetus for giving Carlson the boot.
“Lachlan is pretty sensitive to accusations of a toxic work environment where sexual harassment is involved,” Manning went on to tell the outlet.
Tucker Carlson EXPOSED the media for being a part of the control apparatus used by the Global Elites to enslave the world.
For years, Tucker has been the ONLY thing keeping the MSM halfway honest.

“Abby Grossberg, who worked on Carlson’s show, has filed a lawsuit claiming she faced a sexist and hostile work environment, and some reports have said that was a big factor in the host’s firing,” Davis revealed in his report. “Manning added that many high-profile people pushed out by Murdoch were not fired due to one huge incident but rather ‘a buildup and then a final last straw.'”
“In writing about Carlson’s departure, The Hill noted it came after Fox News settled a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million. Dominion had claimed it was defamed by Fox News after the 2020 election,” Davis continued.

Bull Sh*t! There could be numerous “excuses” to fire him. But that’s exactly what they are, EXCUSES! Tucker Carlson was the “Star Player” on this team. You don’t fire the “STAR” outright moments before a planned announcement of the firing because of allegations. You call him in with him having representation present and then, at worst case scenario, he “goes on vacation” or “takes some personal time off” while the “investigation” takes place.
He was fired! On the spot!
The Dominion “settlement” had just happened a few days before. But, he wasn’t the only anchor who had guests on exposing the possibility of rigging the 2020 election.
He had the exclusive on the January 6 tapes and promised a week of reveal. But, ended after just two days. Strange, huh?
Also, he was NOT a supporter of the Ukraine war. No telling how this factored in.
My bet is that Lachlan Murdock wanted to exert his newly acquired “power”. He is a “Lefty” and as with all “Leftists” his “religion” demanded that he move FOX towards Socialism and away from Conservatism.
The trigger was likely the settlement. But, in firing Tucker, they cut off their collective nose despite their face!
The end of my watching Fox News. This firing and way too many commercials has moved me away from Fox News.
Fox had advertisers because of Tucker. Now they go broke.
I truly believe it was an agreement with Dominion to oust Tucker Carlson. From purely business perspective, why would someone take the best selling product off the shelf? I think they got a reduced cash settlement in exchange for ousting Carlson and maybe Bongino also.
I agree. I think that’s why they settled
I also think they used him to set an example to keep the others in line.
Sid- you are a fucking moron if you really believe any of that shit. Also, Laughlin just like his father is an ultra conservative. If you are too stupid for Fox News then I don’t know what I could say to you that will make you understand politics. Maybe if I tried writing it in crayon like you are used to.
Your name matches your brain!
Dick- Perhaps you should learn how to spell (L-A-C-H-L-A-N) before you call others stupid. Maybe you should be writing in crayon!
I don’t get what Dick is saying, but it’s nasty for what purpose?
Dick, you R a moron if you believe any of the shit you just wrote.
Dick, your foul language expreses the lack of intelligence in you. Typical of the left when they run out of logic answers.
What a stupid Dick!
The Swamp in DC may have threatened to shut down all of FOX- licensing is only for the left perhaps?
So now Fox is going ‘woke? The Murdochs capitulated to the pressure. If they were ultra conservative as the writer above says, why wouldn’t they AGREE that the machines had rigged software in them–has dominion proven there WAS NOT RIGGED SOFTWARE? I recall a photo on Rumble right after 2020 election that actually showed a reversal of numbers (Trump to Biden) in the machine tally in the middle of PENNSYLVANIA voting. in my county in PA we used the dominion machines and are also being sued by Judicial Watch to clean up the voter rolls. My county is resistant to clean up and is run by dems. Enough said.
Good Bye Tucker. My whole family will miss you. We are not watching anything on FOX anymore. We wish Tucker well.
I agree no more FOX. Guttfeld would have made a real issue of Don Lemon being fired the same day. No mention of it. He couldn’t do it without mentioning Tucker. Some of our own cities could use a portion of the Ukraine money to help bring them back to health. What’s wrong with that? I wish Tucker well too. If they can come for him we can’t be far behind.
I find it interesting that when Bret Baire
ends his show he leaves us with
“Still balanced and unafraid” … is now untrue.
Fox News is afraid and no longer balanced.
And to the rest of you on Fox News…if they came for Tucker they can come for you. You should have all
stuck together, protested or boycotted.
In addition, Blackrock is involved as part owner.
