Tucker Carlson Called Fox News Exec the ‘C-Word’ and Wanted Viewers To Know It

Tucker wanted the world to know how he really feels

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson reportedly called a Fox News executive “the c-word” in a text message, and it was narrowly kept from going public during the embattled cable network’s legal fight with Dominion Voting Systems.

Weeks before Carlson was fired, Fox News lawyers came to the the veteran newsman with what they assumed to be a win for their side: Text messages in which Carlson “called a senior Fox News executive the c-word” would be redacted from a legal filing, according to the Wall Street Journal:

Mr. Carlson, Fox News’s most-watched prime-time host, wasn’t impressed. He told his colleagues that he wanted the world to know what he had said about the executive in a private message, the people said.

Apparently, Carlson had “showed disregard for management and colleagues” during his last years at the network, and the perception that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” existed as its own “island” – separate from the network – combined with the “disregard” “were a major factor” in the decision to fire him earlier this week.

The Wall Street Journal does not name the executive who Carlson reportedly referred to as “the c-word,” but it does note that Fox News Chief Executive Suzanne Scott “made the decision to oust” Carlson alongside Fox Corp. Executive Chair Lachlan Murdoch.

As recently as last month, Mediaite reported there was a growing feud between Scott and Carlson, and described the former host as going “rogue” in his relationship with management after “years” of being at odds with Scott:

Yet insiders told Mediaite that Scott and Wallace have no control over what Carlson does between 8 and 9 p.m., one of the most-watched hours in all of television.

 

“No one has control over Tucker,” one former Fox News veteran told me. “I don’t even know if the Murdochs do.”

At the time, Carlson denied the reports of a feud, and insisted he had a good working relationship with Scott.

Last night at 8 p.m., his prior time slot at Fox News, Carlson posted a short video to Twitter that seems to hint at his plans for the future. He also took swipes at cable news, calling it “irrelevant” and “stupid.”

    Unnamed sources. Unnamed executives. Fox executives still hiding their reasons for the decision. Just a bunch of claptrap meant to harm Tucker. I cancelled my Fox News portion of my Dish subscription right after the 2020 election. Wish I had a Fox Nation subscription so I could cancel that as well.

      Making money online is more than $15k just by doing simple work from home. I received $18376 last month. It’s an easy and simple job to do and its earnings are much better than regular office jobs and even a little child can do this and earn money. Everybody must try this job by just use the info on this page….. 𝗪𝘄𝘄.𝗷𝗼𝗯𝘀𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘂𝗲.𝗰𝗼𝗺

      In my experiences in television and out of it, instead in other professions, the same can be said of both men & women in management. But I can’t remember a single woman boss in 6 different jobs I’ve held where they were an effective manager of people or resources. They were all bullies because they loved the power to be able to push men around. I’d imagine the same occurred on a daily basis at FNC.

    Of course they don’t because they can’t. Fake News 101 lesson here.

    Sounds like inflamed body parts on both sides of the aisle. A couple week hiatus should have been beneficial for the Corporation. They have done nothing but throw a life line to the cellar dwellers.
