The announcement of Tucker Carlson and Fox News parting ways in April elicited surprise from both supporters and detractors. Tucker Carlson Tonight garnered significant popularity on the network, consistently attracting a viewership of three million individuals.
The retirement of Carlson was publicly disclosed without an official explanation; however, subsequent to this disclosure, multiple assertions have surfaced concerning the actual events that transpired behind the scenes.
During an interview on MSNBC, Michael Wolff spoke about his latest book, “The Fall: The End of Fox News and the Murdoch Dynasty.” where he wrote about the network’s turmoil, including how then-Fox News chairman Rupert Murdoch decided to boot Carlson despite liking him personally.
Wolff told MSNBC host Ari Melber that Fox News fired Carlson because of the Dominion lawsuit. However, Fox has denied that claim.
