Conservatives are still reeling over Fox News firing Tucker Carlson.
Everyone is trying to figure out what is going on.
And Steve Bannon dropped this bombshell about Fox News firing Tucker Carlson to support Michelle Obama in 2024.
Bannon appeared on Charlie Kirk’s show and warned that the Murdoch family fired Tucker Carlson as part of a plot to stop Trump in the 2024 election.
Steve Bannon claimed that Fox News removed the most prominent voice in opposition to the war in Ukraine off the airwaves.
“As long as they pay Tucker. And I think this contract from what I’m told — runs a couple of years, they’ve taken him off. What the Murdochs have done is taken the populous voice, the anti-Ukraine voice, the anti-uniparty voice, the platform in mainstream media and primetime. The only voice out there of populous nationalism, right? They’ve taken it off through the 2024 election, which is, I’ve said from day one, what Murdoch’s plan here is,” Bannon added.
Carlson’s opposition to the war in Ukraine led Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – Murdoch’s preferred candidate – into a political minefield when he responded to questions about Ukraine by stating that the war with Russia was a “territorial dispute” and that the conflict was not in America’s vital interests.
And it did not escape anyone’s notice that Ron DeSantis was the featured guest on Sean Hannity’s show the first night Fox took Carlson off the air.
Murdoch and other establishment Republicans want to move past Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again agenda.
Bannon told Kirk that if Fox News could not help the GOP establishment win the Republican Presidential Primary, then Murdoch would pivot to boosting Joe Biden or even Michelle Obama in the General Election.
“They’re gonna use any tool they can get their hands on to stop Trump. And if they don’t do that, they’re gonna back the Biden or the Michelle Obama or whoever it is to stop Trump because Trump represents populist nationalism in this country. And now they’ve actually hurt themselves economically by taking Tucker Carlson off. That shows you a signal to your audience of how much they fear the audience,” Bannon added.
Bannon warned that Fox News would pull out all the stops to keep Carlson from joining a rival conservative network or from starting his own media company.
“I think you’re gonna see a huge fight with them trying to keep Tucker Carlson from starting his own network, from going to either the Newsmax or Real America’s Voice, starting his own podcast. Whatever it is to get his message out, they will fight tooth and nail to stop that. Cause what they’re trying to do is take his platform away at least through 2024,” Bannon said.
