The fallout from the defamation suit appears to have finally taken hold at Fox News.
The outlet has parted ways with one of its most popular hosts…. Tucker Carlson.
The report just broke that Fox News and Tucker Carlson have parted ways.
Carlson will not get a goodbye show, as his last hosted show was April 21.
I told you guys there would be repercussions for Fox paying out almost $800 billion, and the hammer has fallen.
Tucker Carlson was one of three hosts that I felt could possibly lose his job.
The other two being Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.
Fox News released a statement on the matter, quite blunt, and with little fanfare…

This is going to go over huge with the left in both political and media circles.
This firing comes only days after Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) singled out Tucker Carlson…
“It is very, very clearly incitement of violence.” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez criticizes Tucker Carlson and other Fox News hosts for spreading misinformation and violent rhetoric with the public. https://t.co/V0g6vN1Dv5 pic.twitter.com/6FyEhwiX28

I have not yet seen a statement from Tucker Carlson, but I would imagine it would be pretty low-key, as I am sure he was given a parachute to exit without creating a stink.
I will keep an eye out for any updates on this matter regarding a Tucker Carlson statement or his future plans for employment.
