Fox News Channel is facing its biggest crisis to date.
Many viewers think the network sold out President Trump.
And now Tucker Carlson made this surprising announcement about rumors he was leaving Fox News.
Political strategists and Republican donors are floating the possibility that Tucker Carlson will leave Fox News and launch a campaign for President in 2024.
During a recent broadcast Carlson addressed these rumors head-on.
Carlson told his audience that he was staying at Fox News and that the network would be expanding his role.
“Before we get to the next segment, a quick note about the show. Over the weekend we got a lot of calls asking if we’re leaving Fox News. Ironically, at that very moment, we were working on a project to expand the amount of reporting and analysis we do in this hour across other parts of the company. This show is not going anywhere. It’s getting bigger. The people who run Fox News want more of it, not less, and we are grateful for that. We’ll have specifics soon, but as always, thank you for your trust in us. We’ll do our best to be worthy of it,” Carlson stated.
Carlson’s announcement comes at a perilous time for Fox News Channel.
Its ratings are down since the election and rival Newsmax says its viewership increased tenfold.
President Trump and many of his supporters believe Fox News bowed to its liberal critics that smeared it as “state TV” and adopted an increasingly anti-Trump posture as evidenced by Fox carrying Joe Biden’s campaign speeches, but not those of Donald Trump as well as Chris Wallace’s embarrassingly biased performance as a debate moderator.
Carlson also found himself in hot water after saying lawyer Sidney Powell would not come on his show and offer evidence of voter fraud.
Powell claimed she offered Carlson a sworn affidavit as well as a witness.
But Carlson is not among the Fox News hosts and reporters that adopted blatantly pro-Joe Biden and pro-Democrat talking points.
Carlson staying is a sign that at the very least, the primetime opinion shows hosted by Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham will not bend to the political changes at Fox News.
That is a welcome sign for viewers.
The rest of the fake news media is already announcing in word and deed that they plan to take a vacation should Joe Biden win the White House and stop the practice of journalism like they did during Barack Obama’s eight years in office.
Some news outlet needs to invest in accountability journalism to call out a Biden administration should Biden win the election.
Tucker Carlson staying at Fox News with an expanded role will provide hope for many viewers that the network is not trying to become another CNN.
