Tuckered out

Post by bjn » Mon Apr 24, 2023 8:39 pm

Mr Carlson has parted ways with Fox News, fired for being too woke is my guess. I’m hoping that Tucker sues Fox for something or other related to said defenestration and even more dirty laundry gets aired. What a joy it would be to see them at each other’s throats.

Russia Today are suggesting he should work for them.

Different organisations. One is “Russia Today”, the other is “Russia, today”.

Bye Tucker!

Don’t let the armed militiaman gun you down in the street on your way out.

Apparently this is related to the Abby Grossberg lawsuit against Carlson and Fox News. Murdoch is seemingly trying to limit the damage. Grossberg's allegations are that Carlson promoted a hostile and discriminatory work environment.

Grossberg has separately alleged that Fox lawyers coached her to lie in her deposition for the Dominion lawsuit.

It is starting to look like the wheels are falling off Fox. Murdoch is in a tricky position. He has large legal risks, yet firing his popular stars will see his viewers shift to other networks.

Fox will probably hire Alex Jones to replace him

This Succession spin off is highly entertaining

The immediate take is the supposed honorability of how white people fight, but also: https://twitter.com/maxapotter/status/1 ... 19683?s=20
