Fox News thought they could censor Tucker Carlson and get away with it.
That turned out to be a big mistake.
And you’ll be speechless when you see what Tucker Carlson caught Fox News doing.
Fox News is in the soup once again over a chyron that appeared on screen after Joe Biden had Donald Trump arrested.
As Biden spoke at the White House the graphic read “Wannabe dictator speaks at the White House after having his political rival arrested.”
Corporate media outlets immediately denounced Fox News.
“First, Fox News outrageously labeled Biden a ‘wannabe dictator’ in an on-screen banner Tuesday night and declared that he had ordered his ‘political rival arrested.’ The banner matched hours of reckless commentary from the network’s top hosts and personalities in the wake of disgraced former President Donald Trump’s arraignment,” CNN’s liberal activist Oliver Darcy whined.
Fox News quickly caved in and issued a groveling statement pleading for Joe Biden and the rest of the legacy media outlets to forgive Fox News.
“The chyron was taken down immediately and was addressed,” the Fox News statement read.
On the fourth episode of Carlson’s popular new “Tucker on Twitter” show, Carlson explained what Fox News addressing the graphic really meant.

Carlson told viewers that “inside Fox, the women who run the network panicked.”
Fox News does not want any negative media coverage coming out of the Dominion settlement and firing Tucker Carlson was seen by many as an attempt by Fox News to make peace with their critics.
In his monologue, Carlson said network executives went out of their way to humiliate the longtime producer responsible for the graphic in the hopes of keeping the jackals in the liberal media at bay.
First, they scolded the producer who put the banner on the screen. Less than 24 hours after that, he resigned. He’d been at Fox for more than a decade. He was considered one of the most capable people in the building. He offered to stay for the customary two weeks, but Fox told him to clear out his desk and leave immediately.
Then the company issued a public apology for the 27-second long “wannabe dictator” line. Quote, “The chyron was taken down immediately,” Fox’s PR department said and then added ominously, it was, quote, “addressed.” That was all true, but it was not enough to save Fox News from the ensuing scandal.
When Fox News fired Tucker Carlson over 30 percent of the audience stopped watching the channel on the spot.
One of the driving forces of the Fox News boycott was the concern that management planned to shift the network to the left and that canceling Carlson was the centerpiece of a new editorial direction.
And Carlson is telling viewers that Fox News apologizing to Joe Biden is a sign that that is exactly what is going on.
