It didn’t take long for leftists and their media allies to start celebrating the departure of Tucker Carlson from Fox News. As soon as the announcement was made, Twitter trolls and former CNN talking head Brian Stelter began gloating about the ousting of one of the nation’s most influential critics of the corrupt ruling class. Stelter even went so far as to pen some “fan fiction” about the reason for the split.
But it wasn’t just the Twitter trolls who were celebrating. Congressional Democrats, who had previously demanded that Fox News silence hosts like Carlson who discuss election inconsistencies, were quick to cheer at their political enemy’s downfall. Rep. Maxine Waters even took to Twitter to thank Dominion Voting Systems for their lawsuit against Fox News and Trump, saying “you beat the hell out of them, bye-bye.”
Rep. Robert Garcia was also quick to chime in, saying he was “glad to hear that one of the most divisive, racist and destructive forces on television is off his prime time show. Tucker Carlson will not be missed.”
Other Democrats, including Reps. Mark Pocan, Chuy Garcia, Bill Pascrell Jr., Barbara Lee, and Seth Moulton, also joined in on the celebration.
The news of Tucker Carlson’s departure from Fox News has sparked a wave of reactions from left-leaning personalities and media outlets. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to social media to declare that “deplatforming works and it is important,” using the opportunity to fundraise. Meanwhile, the ladies of “The View” paused their show to celebrate Carlson’s exit, with co-host Sunny Hostin blaming him for the “degradation” of democracy in the country. Even “The Daily Show” got in on the action, with correspondent Desi Lydic joking that Carlson finally has a reason for his perpetually stupid look. Love him or hate him, it’s clear that Carlson’s departure has left a mark on the media landscape.ef=”https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/let-america-be-america-again-fox-news-4th-of-july-segment-slammed-as-racist” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>outrageously racist segment for the Fourth of July, which featured a poem by Langston Hughes being read over images of slavery and the Ku Klux Klan.
The Real Story
While some may be celebrating Tucker Carlson’s departure from Fox News, it’s important to remember the real story here. Carlson was one of the most watched and influential voices on the network, and his departure marks a significant shift in the network’s programming. It remains to be seen what direction Fox News will take without him, but one thing is for sure: the media landscape is changing rapidly, and those who don’t adapt will be left behind.
Fox News is facing backlash from outraged viewers over an on-air segment promoting child gender experiments. Despite this, National Review’s senior writer Noah Rothman claimed in an article that the consequences are owed only to best business practices, completely ignoring the fact that Fox News is on track to lose the audience of its most popular show. Meanwhile, Washington Examiner’s life and arts editor Nick Clairmont tweeted that the show was no more than a fashy, sh-tty show that only one percent of Americans watched on a good night. However, it’s important to note that the show still had a significant influence on American electoral politics. As Fox News deals with the fallout from this controversial segment, it remains to be seen how it will affect the network’s future. Stay tuned for updates.
