Primetime host Tucker Carlson and Fox News shocked the world when they decided to “part ways” earlier this week. 

No one saw it coming. 

In the weeks leading up to Carlson’s removal from the Fox News primetime lineup’s 8 pm slot, the outspoken television host interviewed both former President Donald Trump and Elon Musk. 

Both of which were television ratings gold for the network. So what happened? 

Those in the media business have floated many different theories of why Carlson is out, but as of right now, no one knows for sure. 

Podcaster and former Fox News host, Dan Bongino, was visibly shocked when he learned of the split during the live broadcast of “The Dan Bongino Show” on Rumble on Monday morning. 

Today on his podcast, Bongino talked about why he thinks Tucker will be just fine in the wake of his newfound unemployment. 

“There’s a very small group of people on planet Earth who can be agnostic of the platform. In other words, people will follow them because they make news.

“They don’t cover news…the Howard Sterns, the Rush Limbaughs of the day, Tucker, there are others out there too but it’s a small group.”

“People can follow you anywhere,” Bongino said.

And he is not wrong. Carlson posted a video addressing his audience on Wednesday night and as of this writing, it has 59.3 million views.

“One of the first things you realize, when you step outside the noise for a few days, is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country and decent people who really care about what’s true,” Carlson said.

He added, “The other thing you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are.”

“Both political parties and their donors have reached consensus on what benefits them and they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it.

“Suddenly the United States looks very much like a one-party state.

“That’s a depressing realization but it’s not permanent. Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re braindead. Nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them.

“This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue so it won’t.

“The people in charge know this that’s why they’re hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion. They’re resorting to force but it won’t work.

“When honest people say what’s true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful.

“At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink, and they become weaker.

“That’s the iron law of the universe. True things prevail.

“Where can you still find Americans saying true things?” he said. “There aren’t many places left, but there are some, and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope. See you soon.”

Carlson was Fox’s most popular personality with the number one cable news show on television.

He hosted “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for six years after replacing Bill O’Reilly who was fired from the network in 2016.

Will Tucker follow former Fox News employees like O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly into the digital media space? We shall see.
