Tucker Carlson is the top-rated talk show host on cable news.
Liberals have been after him for years and trying to force Fox News to fire him.
And Tucker Carlson put jaws on the ground with this decision about a career change.
Before Tucker Carlson became a runaway ratings hit on Fox News, Carlson resurrected his career by co-founding the conservative news website The Daily Caller.
Carlson announced he was leaving The Daily Caller to concentrate his time and energies on his nightly Fox News program.
“I’m just too absorbed in what I’m doing,” Carlson told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. “I wasn’t helping in any way, because I’ve got an hour to do every night.”
According to The Wall Street Journal, Carlson’s co-founder will take over the online news site.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the “Daily Caller co-founder and publisher Neil Patel said he bought out Mr. Carlson’s roughly one-third stake, but declined to disclose the terms. Mr. Patel now owns a controlling stake in the website—the rest of which is owned by investor and major Republican donor Foster Friess and a few other small investors—which makes the Daily Caller the largest digital-media company owned by a person of color, according to Mr. Patel, who was born in India.”
Carlson’s announcement came one day after Fox News faced pressure to fire the popular Fox News host after a left-wing mob smeared Carlson as a racist.
During a monologue, Carlson said liberal thought police mobs would come for all Americans that they accused of thought crimes.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will,” Carlson told his audience.
But left-wing critics accused Carlson of claiming that armed black men would storm the suburbs and come after white residents.
Carlson never said anything of the sort.
And Fox News rejected the liberal critics’ demands to silence Carlson.
Carlson addressed the Stalinist cancel culture on the very next broadcast of his show.
“They won’t succeed in that, thankfully,” Carlson explained. “We work for one of the last brave companies in America and they’re not intimidated. We’re grateful for that. But the whole thing did get us thinking that we should be more specific about who this mob is, and what they’re doing.”
Left-wing activists tried to drive Carlson off the air several years ago by targeting his sponsors after the liberal thought police falsely claimed Carlson made racist comments about immigrants.
Carlson never made any such comments.
And the truth and sanity won out as Fox refused to cave in and kept Carlson on the air.
After George Floyd’s murder, the left senses it has the upper hand in the ongoing cultural war.
And they are pressing their advantage for as long as they have it to silence all dissenters.
