Tucker Carlson Reveals if He Will Leave Fox News

Fox News Tucker Carlson has set the record straight about his future at Fox News and according to the conservative star, he doesn’t plan on going anywhere.

Carlson even said that Fox News wants more of him, not less.

According to Town Hall:

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson took a moment out of his program on Monday evening to address concerns that he was leaving the network. The statement came after a doctored post circulated on social media over the weekend, which showed a fake screenshot of what seemed to be Carlson on a Parler account announcing that he would be starting at another outlet next month.

“Over the weekend we got a lot of calls asking if we’re leaving Fox News. Ironically, at that very moment we were working on a project to expand the amount of reporting and analysis we do in this hour across other parts of the company,” he explained. “This show is not going anywhere, it’s getting bigger. People who run Fox News want more of it, not less, and we are grateful for that. We’ll have specifics soon.”

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged 5.36 million viewers in October and its monthly average was the highest of any show in cable news history, according to Fox News.

The statement from Carlson comes as many viewers have lost trust in the network over its election coverage, including calling Arizona despite the race coming down to a razor thin margin and projecting Democrats would pick up seats in the House, which they acknowledged they were wrong about. Beyond that, host Neil Cavuto upset viewers when he cut away from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s press conference on alleged voter fraud.

Carlson has addressed the controversy claiming you can’t just cut away from news you don’t like. The Democrats screamed fraud, without evidence, for 4 years without any pushback. Apparently the double standard exists even at Fox, and the network has a long way to go if it ever expects to regain some of the views it has lost.

Tucker DID’NT say that! I watched it! He halfway interrupted her and said “WE don’t have that PROOF, so we cannot Report it’s Fact until we’ve had a chance to see these documents the attorneys have”. At that point I told my wife, “OF COURSE THEYRE NOT GOING TO RELEASE THEIR PROOF BEFORE COURT OR THE OPPOSING SIDE WOULD HAVE TIME TO CREATE A DEFENSE”

Sorry Tucker, YOU and FOX NEWS are dead to me and my family and friends.
Tucker staying at Fox news means his viewership will be going down the drain.
You can only lie, mislead and feed communist properganda for so long before conservatives and republicans wise up to the communist owners of fox news and know ….FOX NEWS is not for 70 MILLION PLUS AMERICANS, that want communists out of this country.

Good grief. I stopped CNN right after the Iraq war when they showed our fighters and bombers raining hell. Best free intel the US ever had. MSNBC very shortly there after when Morning Joe became inflatuated (pun intended) with Mika. She has always been a flake. But then so was her old man. I been gone from the alphabet channels for a long time.

So it is on to Newsmax and One America News.

I saw that, and I honestly don’t get it. I don’t get Fox at all any more. How can they have all liberals during the day, that keep parroting the same mantra, “No evidence”, over and over again, and cutting off anybody who even comes close to suggesting there was fraud or a problem with machines, then, in the evening, have Tucker, Hannity, and Laura telling truth? And now, Tucker’s coverage will be expanding in some way on Fox? I am confused. Also, I was a little unsettled at Tucker’s reluctance to give credence to the massive evidence that these attorneys are uncovering and talking about, (where they’re allowed to). I thought he would make more effort to dig into the truth. If he did, it wasn’t evident. I no longer trust Fox, so I am waiting to see what comes of this. If Tucker becomes a sell-out just to maintain power and fame at Fox, I’ll dump him like a hot potato. My advice to Tucker is to watch his back there. Don’t put too much trust in Fox’s promises. Anyone who would stab half their audience in the back they way they did on election night is just not honorable.

They are trying to recover some of the massive lost audience.

All it’s going to do is make the ad spots really expensive during Tucker time.

Expect more Tucker time but also a lot more ad time.

Fox shot itself in the foot and you can bet they are clinging to Tucker and Hannity. All the rest are window dressing. Must be eerie over there with sides drawn between the Never Trumpers, the left and the right, all exposed during the election. This crack in the dam has left room for the great new Newbies like OAN and Newsmax. A place to go when Juan gets too obnoxious and takes over The Five.

I adore Tucker, Hannity and Ingraham; Fox & Friends; and The Five. But as far as I’m concerned I don’t listen to any of the others any more. Their loyalty to us has gone down the tubes. The leftist son now running the network is losing viewers. Tucker may be saying he’s staying for now, but wouldn’t be surprised if he leaves anyway. It’s such a shame cause I was a huge Fox fan. Have switched over to NewsMax as have many of my friends once they found out there was another “conservative” news network available to watch. CNN, MSNBC and the other fake media aren’t worth a minute of my time. Trump is right…it has been Fake News for 4 years and those people are nasty, nasty, nasty.

Fox is begging for the Communist News Network, CNN, and MSNBC, who spends their time pouring filth on anyone who isn’t a left-wing radical – hoping to be taken under their wings. Newsmax is far superior to Fox and its lefty hosts. Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and , Steve Hilton should consider leaving the immature Murdoch brothers faux news station for Newsmax. As for Tucker, he still seems Conservative, but if Fox is looking to expand his program – then watch out. It likely will not be Conservative.

The reason that the personalities that keep FOX afloat won’t leave is because the others can’t pay them what FOX does. Look at Sean’s salary.

So where do you think Tucker with his well-known conservative bent could go? Which of the leftist networks would want him? Fox wants him to stay in order to maintain some semblance of good ratings. I hope he stays as I will tune into him at least until he morphs into one of those useless leftists like Doocy and Kilmeade.

I really hope you change your mind. We love your show, most of the time, and watch it regularly. However, we really are otherwise fed up with Fox, so we may have to leave you too. We understand your position, and we all hope you understand ours as well.

Perhaps when Trump, Inc. soon buys Communist Network News (CNN) and changes it to Trump Network News, you will come over to them.

Tucker, I watched you when I could.

I could see that FOX has been dying of a cancer that has been growing as the network shifted more towards the left. Yeah, you had a solid claim of being unbiased in the past. But with emergence of liberal talking heads that have been allowed to run wild like weeds in an untreated pasture it has left the followers like me to find other news sources. This past election pushed me to now watch Newsmax and One America News. Very refreshing. Donna, Juan and the others get free rein to speak while silencing conservatives.

I emailed fox morning anchors and corporate. Never got an answer from anyone and I get it. Why waste your time with audience members?

FOX = CNN = MSNBC = NPR. Just a different bunch of liberal hypocrites.

Welcome to the club FOX.If you had any sense, you’d pitch Ryan.

I have watched nothing but Fox News for 18 years and Election night they are no longer my channel to watch. This is not the same station it was when Dad was in charge. I go between OAN and Newsmax. I think that Hannity, Ingraham, Carlson, Judge Jeanne should all leave and then Fox would become just like the rest of them. I liked the Five except for Juan Williams but they claim they are fair and balanced but they are NOT anymore. Good Bye Fox
