Watching the mainstream media fall apart is almost as delicious as the final tally on election day when a Democrat is sent packing.
When a conservative who was wronged finds a way to get back in the game and send shock waves through the media world, patriots everywhere can celebrate. Enter Tucker Carlson who was tossed aside by Fox News like yesterday’s newspaper.
Fox didn’t expect that Tucker would fight back by thumbing his nose at the media giant and setting up shop on Twitter. And they certainly didn’t expect him to rally rich conservatives to join his cause.
Fox executives should have remembered that Tucker already helped build one media company, and now he’s back for more in the media race.
From the Daily Caller:
Carlson is reportedly fundraising for the venture with a “vast majority” of his former Fox News staff set to join him.
“It’s increasingly possible that the Twitter show is a top-of-funnel play for other things Tucker may soon have cooking,” Puck News’ Dylan Byers wrote. “In fact, I am told he is raising capital to launch a new company that may yet prove more influential.”
Oh, the sweetness of this irony. Fox dumps Tucker and this super-conservative fights back with a plan to launch a fiery competitor against all media outlets.
Tucker, who co-founded the Daily Caller, is all set to get the band back together after Fox fired the remaining staff members from his old show. Fox has announced a new prime-time lineup and Tucker’s team was abruptly canned just like their former boss. This after staffers reported that Fox promised that their jobs were safe, according to the Daily Caller.
For those still clinging to Fox as “the” media outlet for conservative news, keep in mind that this is the company known for tossing “dissenting” voices. Tucker is only the most recent and certainly the most profitable host Fox has canned. Fox is all about profits and has been exposed for being less conservative than the company claims.
Conservatives must follow sources for news and information not controlled by billionaire media power players – like at Fox News.
A new media outlet founded by Tucker will open an array of possibilities. How many conservative voices are out there doggedly working to counter liberal mainstream media? How many would be open to joining Tucker? How much financial support can Tucker attract to pay strong conservatives to turn mainstream media on its head?
You might even see personalities across networks (remember Tucker was once at CNN) who are ready and willing to jump ship and join Tucker. This would be a media coup for the ages!
From the Daily Caller:
“Tucker’s new media play might – if executed adroitly – serve as a paradigm for a generation of TV news personalities with huge followings and fandoms who remain marooned to their desks amid shrinking audiences,” Puck News’ Dylan Byers continued.
Tucker is on a path to send Fox News to the sidelines of the media front. This is a long time coming and can’t happen soon enough.
- Fox News is facing more competition after firing Tucker Carlson.
- The news is abuzz that fiery Carlson is secretly building his own media outlet.
- A new, conservative media powerhouse could tank liberal media and Fox News.
