Ever since firing Tucker Carlson, Fox News has been feeling the anger of conservatives. It’s about to get so much worse.
Because Tucker Carlson made this huge announcement that blindsided Fox News.
Back in late April, Fox News announced that it had parted ways with Tucker Carlson.
At first, many were confused and thought maybe it was a contractual dispute or an amicable split.
Nothing could’ve been further from the truth.
Reports surfaced that Fox News had deliberately targeted Tucker Carlson for pushing views Fox News owner, Rupert Murdoch, disagreed with.
With it’s canning of Tucker, conservative TV lost its most prolific and popular personality. People began to wonder whether Tucker would ever bounce back.
But he just put all the naysayers to shame.
Tucker Carlson, former Fox News personality, slayed cable ratings with the premiere of the first episode of his new Twitter show on Tuesday.
The episode received 9 million views in the first two hours after it was posted.
Carlson’s first program went live at 6 p.m. EDT.
By 6 a.m. Wednesday, the video had received approximately 60 million views.
At the time of writing this article, the video stands at a whopping 84 million views.
The former Fox anchor spent much of his broadcast condemning the corporate media for failing to investigate subjects like the Nord Stream pipeline explosion, who is behind the Black Lives Matter demonstrations, and “what really happened to Jeffrey Epstein.”
“Not only are the media not interested in any of this, they’re actively hostile to anybody who is,” Carlson said. “In journalism, curiosity is the gravest crime.”
Carlson’s debut Twitter show aired concurrently with Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier and before the cable network’s Jesse Watters Primetime.
According to a ratings report, Baier’s show got 1.78 million total viewers on Monday and averaged 1.45 million viewers over the month of May.
On Monday, two million people saw Jesse Watters Primetime. Watters’ show averaged 1.7 million views in May, according to ratings.
