This is bad for Fox News. Very bad. The superstar, and the king of cable news, Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News. He`s finished. It`s over and out, which is extremely bad for Fox News. Not long ago, Tucker Carlson, Tonight recorded 4,3 Million viewers in 2Q, which was an all-time high for Fox News.
Tucker Carlson`s exit is related to the discrimination lawsuit filed by Abby Grossberg, the producer fired by the network last month, the people said. People familiar with the situation who was not authorized to comment publicly said the decision to fire Carlson came straight from Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch.
Murcdoch is also said to be concerned over Carlson`s coverage of the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, in which the host has promoted the conspiracy theory that it was provoked by government agents.
People around the world are shocked. It`s a bomb. A total surprise. But, it sends a message that even the guy with the highest ratings, by a long shot, doesn`t get to survive this disaster!
A rotating schedule of hosts will take over Carlson`s 8 p.m. Slot in the coming weeks, and they will not have a final show. His departure is so abrupt that Fox News was still previewing an episode of his show as of this morning.
Fox News’ Harris Faulkner announces on air that Fox and Tucker Carlson have parted ways, effective immediately.
Fox News was the big winner in cable news last week, beating CNNs and MSNBCs combined average primetime viewership on a night. According to Nielsen`s early ratings, across the 8 pm primetime slots, Fox News averaged 3,685,000 viewers while CNN came in last with 904,000.
Mainstream Media is dying. So is journalism, and the picture is very clear. People doesnt want fake news, cowards and liars. They want the truth and this is why they all are fleeing to Fox News. Each of the Fox News Channels primetime shows also boasted impressive wins over their time-slot competition on MSNBC and CNN, besting the other shows’ combined in each hour.
Some advertisers have tried to pull out from Tucker Carlsons show in protest but that doesnt stop him from his success. In the 8 pm hour, «Tucker Carlson Tonight» drew 3,485,000 total viewers, while CNN`s «Anderson Cooper 660» had 865,000.
«Hannity» delivered 4,303,000 viewers while CNN`s «Cuomo Prime Time» drew 900,000. «The Ingraham Angle» delivered 3,268,000 total viewers and the ratings are skyrocketing like never before.
Fox News Channel was the most-watched cable network in total day and primetime last week, and «Hannity» was ranked as the number one cable news show, landing over 4 million total viewers.
Primetime shows «Hannity» and «Tucker Carlson Tonight» had more viewers than broadcast network programming on Monday last week, including CBS News’ Mueller coverage (3 million viewers) and ABC`s «Fix it» (3,9 million viewers).
«The destroy Donald Trump Media» has been on a suicide mission with all their lies and fake news. They are blinded by hate and they will struggle to get out of the dark corner theyre in. But they will be left alone, because people wont be in the dark with all the hate, lies and fake news.
Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein said recently on CNN that the lies is not coming from the press but from president Donald Trump. This is unbelievable. Some cowards will continue to lie and join the poitical HALL OF SHAME. It`s time for reckoning and accountability. Critical balanced journalism is important for a society and Fox News is doing a great job.
