Fox News Fired Tucker Carlson Over Ray Epps, January 6 Reporting: Report

Murdoch reportedly booted Tucker from Fox News for exposing the lies about January 6.

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson was reportedly ousted from the cable television news network by Fox Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch over his narrative-challenging coverage of the January 6 riot and suspected law enforcement asset Ray Epps, according to a report by the LA Times.

The Times claimed to have spoken with “people familiar with the situation who were not authorized to comment publicly,” and reported that Fox’s decision to give Carlson the boot came straight from Murdoch himself.

The Times reported that Murdoch’s decision was related to Abby Grossberg’s discrimination lawsuit. Murdoch was additionally concerned over Carlson’s coverage of the January 6 protest-turned Capitol riot in 2021, including his reporting on evidence that the riot was provoked by suspected undercover federal assets like Ray Epps.

Epps notably has been fervently defended by the Washington establishment over his bizarre actions on January 6, in which he repeatedly instructed protestors to enter the Capitol building, and was even featured on 60 Minutes over the weekend.

Epps claims he has been subject to threats over mounting suspicions that he was secretly working for the government to incite and orchestrate violence on January 6. The FBI additionally claimed that Epps had never worked for them.

Since nixing Carlson’s show this morning, Fox Corporation has lost nearly a billion dollars in stock value in just a few hours.

Carlson began his media career in the 1990’s and has had shows on multiple cable television news networks spanning from CNN, PBS, and MSNBC before joining Fox News in 2009.

The host ascended into political stardom in the years leading up to the first episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in November of 2016, which quickly turned into one of the nation’s most popular news broadcasts in American history.

    Murdock doesn’t trust his own eyes? I trust mine. If Epps isn’t FIB, he’s CIA. The Murdocks should take themselves and their slutty wives back to Down Under.

    America has hit ROCK BOTTOM. Carlson is one of the few people left who will tell the American people the truth about what is going on in our country and abroad. What in the world is Murdoch thinking? I guess FOX is getting in bed with the enemy, the Democrat/Socialist/Communist Party. Do you liberals know what you are doing to our once great country? Or do you not care? I firmly believe it is the latter. I am 80 years young and never in my lifetime would I have believed our country could sink so low. But, here were are folks and it makes me cry.

    Maybe about Ray Epps, but he gave an interview with RFK jr, who is running for the Democratic Party Presidential nomination, and who said that Trump speaks to the masses “desperation”, and that the lower and middle classes have been sold ou5 by the establishment parties, both Democratic and Republican and the corporate government partnership, and also gave an interview with Larry Elders from Calif, who actually declared his Presidential Campaign omn Tucker Carlson Tonight.
    Tucker became too big, too threatening to the establishment, government corporate partnership, as described by RFK jr.
    Tucker said too RFK jr, “You will always be welcome here”.
    How about the PETA commentator about the rats in NewYork City, or the person from Netherlands talking out the upheaval of the farmers protest and the sea change in Dutch Parliament, or the commentary about Ukraine and how this was risking nuclear Armageddon with Russia, especially the Tulsi Gabbard interviews. This all in the aftermath of the exposure of the leaked secret Pentagon documents which revealed the context coming out of the establishment media and Washington.
    Tucker has turned up the heat.

      Nitpicking, but it’s not the “democratic” party. Yes, they are democrats, but absolutely nothing about democrats is democratic.

    Tucker should sue Fox. If I was on the jury, Murdoch would be shining Tuckers shoes, maybe even his knob. This attack on FREEDOM OF SPEECH is criminal.

    This is pure nonsense. The Epps deal has been reported elsewhere, for over a year. The Rupert story is phoney, a Psysop. Its a related to MSM getting Fox to fall on sword for the biggest issue of all Election Fraud that took our Nation. I bet a big chunk of Dominion payoff was by the
    MSM to protect all in the treasonous game. But it came with a caveat – after the big payoff Fox had to fire Carlson who was eating their lunch. Something stinks on everything surrounding the out of court settlement which prevented the long overdue vetting of the evidence in a court of law

    I am canceling my subscription to the Fox News Nation app and will tell them explicitly why I am doing so. Most likely they could not care less, but I will find a better use of my money; watching Tucker’s shows was the only thing I watched on Fox.
    Au voire, Fox. Congrats on one-upping Bud Light.

    YES–GB–TUCKER will be followed wherever he goes. I hope he gets his own show again and Bongino also gets his own show!!! Murdock will lose more than a fortune along with his stockholders who will not be happy.

    Tucker was probably going to ask if Ray Epps wasn’t working for the feds or one of its contractors, why is Ray Epps not in jail?

    I was looking forward to watching Tucker tonite because I just knew he was going to blow up 60 mins for that puff piece interview they did with Ray Epps. I guess fox couldn’t stand for that and now he is gone.
    But not for long I think and hope!!!

    Tucker Carlson, the truth teller…
    Tucker broke Bill O’Reilley’s ratings. He didn’t bloviate like Sean Hannity, assert protective platitudes like Laura Ingraham, or show off as cocktail party prima donna Meghan Kelly.
    Tucker is true to himself and what evidence shows to be the truth.

    I don’t need Fox. I needed Tucker Carlson. The only reason left to tune into Fox. I had already figured it out…he got fired over Jan. 6, Ray Epps and the truth. I can get my news from Buck Sexton and Clay Travis from their radio time. No more Fox for me. I use to watch football, but not since the first knee taken. I haven’t gone back and won’t. The same with Fox. Done and Finished.

    How convenient it was that FOX fired Tucker before he could come back with a rebuttal on the Ray Epps 60 mins. puff piece interview. They gave Tucker & we the American people – PATRIOTS a BIG middle finger! Well, we will give it right back to them by boycotting them! Look what happened to Bud & AB! The only decent people they have left is Maria Barturomo (sp?) and Mark Levine. Give it time, as they will eventually get rid of them as well even though they are weekend hosts. I guess if it can happen to Dan, it will more than likely happen with them.

    Don’t we need to know where Epps lives, where he works, his phone numbers, and the addresses of homes and jobs of his relatives? That’s what they do to conservatives; why isn’t anybody with the proper resources on our side fighting back?
