If you can’t take the heat, then leave. That’s what two Fox News contributors decided to do after they got upset about Tucker Carlson’s segment on Fox News.
Carlson doesn’t have a polite commentary, nor should he. Carlson’s numbers beat every other news host across mainstream news networks. He hit over 5 million views during the Kyle Rittenhouse interview. Even outside of a single, Carlson averages over 3 million viewers. The other news networks should note that and their “woke” messaging on their programs.
Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have resigned as contributors of Dispatch and said it was primarily because of the documentary that’s coming out about the January 6th riots at the Capitol.
They don’t have to agree with a documentary to keep their jobs. Also, the documentary isn’t new. Fox News, and Carlson specifically, has been talking about the documentary for weeks and months, and it was in production well before that.
They both said, “Fox News still does real reporting, and there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinions and analysis. But the responsible voices are being drowned out by the irresponsible” in a statement about their resignations.
It is the exact thing that news shouldn’t be and what’s ruining mainstream news. Carlson is real. He doesn’t sugarcoat anything, and his viewers know that. However, that can’t be said for a lot of other hosts and indeed not other networks. People relate to reality. They can tell when someone isn’t being genuine.
They also said in the statement that Carlson’s January 6th special is a “collection of incoherent conspiracy-mongering, riddled with factual inaccuracies, half-truths, deceptive imagery, and damning omissions.”
There’s a good chance it will reflect Carlon’s current and former views on the January 6th riot. The Democrat party is on a search to end Conservative values, and they’re weaponizing federal agencies to deal with the “problem.” Just take a look at school board meetings and the FBI being tasked with silencing parents.
The letter continued by saying that when someone has such a large platform, they should be more responsible, but they don’t seem to note that Democrats in 2020 straight-up lied about Biden’s cognitive decline, Hunter Biden’s laptop, and the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots that decimated cities across the nation. It’s a double standard, and that’s most of what Carlson expresses on his show and otherwise.
