Fox News released a statement on Monday that indicated the network has parted ways with its number one news anchor Tucker Carlson.
“We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor,” the Fox News statement read.
The statement came before Carlson had a chance for a sign-off show.
“Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st,” the statement continued.
“Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.”
Last month on his nightly show, Carlson released footage from the so-called January 6 “insurrection,” in what was originally expected to be a multiple-part slow release. However, for whatever reason, Carlson stopped airing the footage after his first night of doing so.
In the footage Carlson aired from the January 6 Capital event, police could be seen opening doors for and even guiding Trump rally attendees inside the building, including the “QAnon Shaman.”
Last week, Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems reached a settlement agreement over a defamation suit filed by the latter over accusations by Fox News alleging the company rigged its voting machines in the 2020 election. The settlement was for $787.5 million.
In an episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the show’s namesake accused the Democratic president of pursuing “trans evangelism,” highlighting the US government’s obsession with spreading woke ideology worldwide.
“Fight to the death to defend what you love. That’s the American position. That’s why we call it the Defense Department, not the Department of Nation Building or the Bureau of Trans Evangelism,” said Carlson.
Earlier this month, on the cusp of Trudeau’s Internet Censorship era coming into force in Canada, far-left activist groups begged the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to prohibit Fox News from airing in Canada.
