Tucker Carlson Addresses Questions About His Future at Fox News

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson took a moment out of his program on Monday evening to address a discredited rumor that circulated on social media over the weekend. Speculation swirled when a post on Parler falsely stated he was leaving the network.

“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,” he explained. “This show is not going anywhere, it’s getting bigger. People who run Fox News want more of it, not less, and we are grateful for that. We’ll have specifics soon.”

"Tucker Carlson Tonight" averaged 5.36 million viewers in October and its monthly average was the highest of any show in cable news history, according to Fox News.

The statement from Carlson comes as many viewers have lost trust in the network over its election coverage,
including calling Arizona despite the race coming down to a razor thin margin and projecting Democrats would pick up seats in the House, which they acknowledged they were wrong about. Beyond that, host Neil Cavuto upset viewers when he cut away from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany's press conference on alleged voter fraud.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear: she's charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can't in good countenance continue to show you this," Cavuto said.





Carlson seemed to address what happened on his program, arguing, "You can't just cut away from coverage you don't like."

Then, host Sandra Smith was caught on a hot mic moment grimacing and questioning a guest pointing out that it's not the media's role to declare winners.

And most recently, Leland Vittert openly laughed at Erin Perrine, the director of press communications for the Trump campaign, in a contentious interview about Team Trump's legal strategy.

Even if Carlson stays, the network has a lot of work to do to regain its trust and credibility among longtime viewers.

If they think Tucker Carlson is going to continue to save them,
I think they may be mistaken.
Heck, who knows how long Carlson and the other ratings dominators at the network even stay there long term?
Things are obviously moving in a direction that is going to endear them to CNN fans, but will destroy the viewership that has built the network into what it is.
That’s their choice, but it’s a really, really stupid one.

The Cable news networks are trying to figure out what life is going to be like without Trump.
Trump really brought the rating up as everyone wanted to hear about impeachment, Russian collusion, Trumps latest tweet. If Trump is gone so are the high viewer numbers.
Anyone think Biden will be as entertaining?

Carlson should talk. When he was interviewed on Ben Shapiro’s show, Shapiro pressed him on some of the stuff Carlson wrote in his latest book. It turns out Carlson is a closet Bernie Sanders socialist. I think he only pretends to be a conservative because it’s gotten him a following.

I have started to look at the way OAN and Newsmax networks reports the news and to which side they bend to. I may switch from Fox to either one of those networks.
On the other hand, if Fox continues bending towards the left, the conservartives voices that they have may be force to resign in other to maintain they credibility..

Wow, I think it is very obvious that FOX NEWS is getting real friendly with the Left. They are saying things that make me want to turn the TV off ! It is like they have turned on us Conservatives. Money Talks.. Carlson has the best show on FOX and like it or not, he tries to tell the truth, which can be hard to listen to. I really like the way he finds these small stories and brings them to the forefront. I haven't wrote him off yet... Evidently Dems go to sleep early cause Hannity, Laura, and Shannon seem to be serious Conservatives.
