(ConcernedPatriot.com) – On Monday, Fox News fired Tucker Carlson, its divisive but popular prime-time presenter. This was an abrupt and unexpected breakup with one of the most critical figures in Republican politics, who had contributed to the network’s bold tone during the Trump era.
His release came less than a week after Fox paid Dominion Voting Systems $787.5 million to settle a defamation lawsuit brought by the company after the network aired false claims that it had planned to rig the 2020 presidential election.
This was the largest publicly disclosed monetary settlement in an American defamation action.
Although Carlson mostly refrained from promoting those particular conspiracies, his private messages were among the thousands of internal contacts made public as the case moved through the courts, which caused Fox anxiety and embarrassment and increased the company’s risk of legal trouble.
Mike @Cernovich explains why Fox News may have REALLY fired Tucker Carlson:

Fox News released a statement saying:
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and, before that, as a contributor.
Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday, April 21. 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.”
Dan Bongino left Fox News last week after the network settled its legal dispute with Dominion Voting Systems.

Deplatforming is censoring speech. AOC is 100% wrong in her views.
Here’s a different take on what some speculate is why Tucker was removed from Fox News:
The REAL Reason Tucker Carlson Was Fired By Fox News!
I'm sure I am not alone in saying that Tucker was the only reason I ever found myself watching Fox News.
They know exactly what they are doing by firing him and we can all see through it.
