Tucker Carlson and Fox News parting ways after $787.5 million goof

Welp, looks like losing $787.5 million to Dominion hit Fox where it hurts. Tucker Carlson is OUT, with his last show having already aired on April 21.

"FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor," Fox said in a cold statement this morning.

"Mr. Carlson's last program was Friday April 21stFox 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."

As the old saying goes (kinda): Liar liar, pants are fired!!

From The New York Times:

Fox News said Monday that it was parting ways with Tucker Carlson, its most popular prime time host who was also the source of repeated controversies and headaches for the network because of his statements on everything from race relations to L.G.B.T.Q. rights.

The network made the announcement less than a week after it agreed to pay $787.5 million in a defamation lawsuit in which Mr. Carlson's show, one of the highest rated on Fox, figured prominently for its role in spreading misinformation after the 2020 election.
