Two Contributors Have Left Fox News Over the Network’s Decision to Air Tucker Carlson Special

At this point in time, Fox News essentially lets Tucker Carlson do whatever he wants. While they sometimes lose advertisers over the hosts controversial statements, it doesn’t seem to matter higher ups.

ESZTERGOM, HUNGARY – AUGUST 07: Tucker Carlson speaks during the Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) Feszt on August 7, 2021 in Esztergom, Hungary. The multiday political event was organized by the Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC), a privately managed foundation that recently received more than $1.7 billion in government money and assets. The leader of its main board, Balazs Orban, who is also a state secretary in the prime minister’s office, said MCC’s priority is promoting “patriotism” among the next generation of Hungary’s leaders.

The network recently allowed Carlson to air a special that claimed the 1/6 election was a false flag event. This decision led to two contributors leaving the network.

Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes, two Conservative pundits, resigned last week. The New York Times Ben Smith notes, “Their departures also mark the end of a lingering hope among some at Fox News — strange as this is for outsiders to understand — that the channel would at some point return to a pre-Trump reality that was also often hyperpartisan, but that kept some distance from Republican officials.

Hayes recently said of the current discourse in the pro-Trump world, “That’s a scary moment. And I think we’d do well to have people who, at the very least, are not putting stuff out that would encourage that kind of thing.”
