As Republican party infighting continues unabated; as consumer prices soar and gas prices edge higher once again; as the war in Ukraine rages on while draining America's pocketbook; and as Biden and crew refuse to lock down our southern border... we now find that the left has a new defacto ally in FOX News.
Once the news haven of we on the right, FOX News is now on the verge of committing ratings suicide with what amounts to their firing of Tucker Carlson, whose show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was the top rated FOX show. And Carlson's being let go after 14-years with FOX came less than a week after Fox settling a defamation lawsuit...settled to a tune of $787.5 million...with Dominion Voting Systems (an electronic voting and hardware company) whose attorneys claimed that some FOX News personalities, including Tucker Carlson, peddled what Dominion considered to be false claims regarding the 2020 election being stolen...which in my personal opinion it was for in no way do I believe that a supposed shananigans-free “basement dwelling ”Joe Biden garnered 81+ million votes.
And so with O'Reilly, FOX set the tone of being “fire happy” instead of taking their chances in court. And if that doesn't send a message...a message that FOX's hierarchy alone will be judge, jury, and sole purveyor of guilt or innocence regarding any charges leveled against one of their employees even if said charges are minus tangible proof. And FOX will continue to do so if it helps prevent having to pay out larger sums of monies in any such lawsuit. Remember, in the world in which FOX operates it is, was, and always will be all about the money...credibility and truth be damned.was and remains a ratings success, it is mostly a “fluff style” news and celebrity gossip show, a far cry from “Justice.”
Then came Dan Bongino, a former FBI and secret service agent, as well as a former New York City police officer whose show, “Unfiltered,” was canceled after he and the outlet could not come to terms on a new contract. “I want you to know it’s not some big conspiracy,” Bongino said on his podcast, adding that,“I promise you. There’s no acrimony. This wasn’t some WWE brawl that happened. We just couldn’t come to terms on an extension.”which ran on FOX Nation...also being removed from FOX's lineup, in spite of FOX's claim that Bongino may still “occasionally” show up as a guest on other FOX shows. And while “Canceled in the USA” was also ratings gold that FOX's hierarchy, for whatever reason, still decided to cancel, leaves me to wonder just why was Tucker Carlson..the man who was rightfully considered to be the very face of FOX News...made the fall guy for what in reality was FOX's own ineptitude in regards to the Dominion fallout.
And with FOX now in trouble, I'm also surprised that Tucker's coworkers have not rallied around, united with, and stood strong behind him for even they have to know that the whims of Murdoch and sons could see them being the next to be let go...no reason or excuse needed..and that includes Sean Hannity, Jessie Waters, Laura Ingram, Greg Guttfeld, and my personal favorite Judge Jeanine Pirro. Also not to be overlooked is that FOX's news anchors...Brett Bair, Neal Cavato, etc...were quick to jump on Don Lemon's firing over at CNN but did not say a word about their coworker and friend Tucker Carlson being let go. Guess they were told not to open their mouths or else “they would be next” as the old saying goes. After all, threats do seem to work wonders when nothing else does.
No, I remain steadfast in my belief that Tucker Carlson was let go due to his in-depth January 6th expose...an expose replete with his debunking of the left's narrative about an “insurrection” that never was, courtesy of the Capitol tapes where the truth could clearly be seen by all.
And with said expose FOX was privy to what was probably the biggest news story since the "presumed to be stolen" election itself...an election I and millions of others still believe was stolen...yet not a word about Carlson's expose was reported on by any of the FOX news anchors. And this is probably because Rupert Murdoch himself along with his RINO Paul Ryan...who sits on FOX's Board of Directors...said it was a “no go”...after all...and again in my opinion...the entire Murdoch clan as well as Paul Ryan...are but carelessly veiled Trump hating liberals hiding in the not so good disguise known as FOX News.
