Fox News has made announcement just days after the network agreed to pay $787.5 million to settle a defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems.
Several fox hosts including Carlson were spared having to testify at trial when Dominion and Fox News reached their settlement on Tuesday, after a jury had already been sworn in. Tucker regularly talked about voter fraud on his show, Tucker Carlson tonight.
Tucker also talked about Dominion quite a bit but we checked today and conveniently clips of him talking about voter fraud have been scrubbed from the internet which may have been part of the defamation case.
Tucker’s last show was on Friday, April 21st.
He began hosting his 8PM Fox News show in November 2016, after previous Fox host Bill O’Reilly was forced out over a string of sexual harassment allegations. He quickly became a ratings juggernaut for the network, and in June 2020 became the most watched show on cable news attracting an average of four million viewers.
Meanwhile, the network is still facing a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit brought by the Smartmatic voting software company over its election coverage.
