An American television personality, Tucker Carlson, and Fox News media departed their ways. On Monday 2023, April, 24, the official channel announced their split during a coverage. In the announcement, the media person stated that the TV host and the News channel both agreed to say goodbye to each other. But a question, which is rolling around in people’s heads is whether it is true. Social media and other famous news channels like CNN, The Guardian, TNYT, CNBC, etc played a vital role in helping information to spread.

When was Tucker Carlson’s last show?
On Friday, the American commentator performed his last show “Tucker Carlson Tonight“, which was then aired live at 8 P.M. It is called an interim show with rotating Fox News personalities until a new host is named. The official media appreciated the sacked person’s services to the news channels.
The media person hosted the highly rated 8 P.M. show for a broad network from 2017-2023. Besides, he contributed to many other shows for the same platform since joining the network in 2009 as a contributor. He entered the network as a contributor to co-host and then host.
From 2012-2016, the former host participated as a co-host of “Fox and Friends Weekend.” In late 2016, he debuted the eponymous show and moved into the 8 P.M. slot in April 2017.
Why did Tucker Carlson leave Fox News?
Seth Adam Meyers, an American comedian, made fun of the famous former host and news channel on his late-night show. “Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News? oh my God. Does this mean Fox News has gone woke?”
“Fox really knows how to disappear someone. I’m shocked they didn’t just go with this as their statement” (A statement the official news channel stated earlier), Seth Meyers added.
Here’s the statement below:
“Tucker Carlson is not now and has never been employed by this network. We don’t know who that is and we’ve never even heard the name. Tune in tonight at 8 P.M. for our nightly newscast hosted as always by Fox News stalwart White Blonde Lady, Blue Dress.”
“We’ll be back. By the way, the entire episode of “Let Them Eat Bugs”, not quite as good as pizza, streaming now on Fox Nation. Use a Promo Code “Originals” for 30 days free. And we’ll be back on Monday,” the Prior host said.
So, this statement shows everything was going fine until the last show and he had no idea about the deal to part ways with the network as they reported.
However, it is reported that the network has dismissed the prime host and one of the top influence voices in America for his vulgar language toward his colleague. It is reported Abby Grossberg, who was instrumental in his ouster, filed a lawsuit against him.
Such wording undermines the statements reported by Fox Media that the separation was mutually agreed upon. Apparently, the influential host has been fired by the network because of the behavior he did.
Nevertheless, the news went on viral on social media and disseminated on top news websites. Some people seem to be happy with the decision while others are not.
On Wednesday, Tucker Carlson issued a video statement on Twitter, addressing his exit from Fox News. In a speech, he also acknowledged how many genuinely nice, decent, and kindly people there are in the country who really care about what’s true. He also mentioned, there are some hilarious people also.
He continued, “The other thing you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are. They’re completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years, we won’t even remember that we had them. Trust me, as someone who has participated. And then at the same time, and this is the amazing thing, the undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all. War. Civil liberties. Emerging science. Demographic change. Corporate power. Natural resources. When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues? It’s been a long time. Debates like that are not permitted in American media”
