Tucker Carlson took everyone by surprise when he revealed this truth about Fox News

Sep 1, 2023

Conservatives were shocked when Fox News parted ways with Tucker Carlson.

But the former top-rated host in cable news has not yet told his side of the story.

And Tucker Carlson took everyone by surprise when he revealed this truth about Fox News.

The world of conservative media was turned upside down when Tucker Carlson was fired from Fox News in April after the network settled a massive lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems.

Carlson began the next step in his media career when he launched his new show Tucker on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.

Fox News responded to the show with a cease-and-desist letter informing Carlson’s legal team that he was in breach of his contract with the network.

Carlson is still negotiating his way out of a contract with Fox that’s supposed to run until early 2025.

Tensions are reportedly running high behind the scenes with the cable news giant trying to keep Carlson muzzled through the rest of his contract.

Much of what happened behind the scenes that led to the split between the former Fox host and the network is still a mystery.

Carlson offered his thoughts on being fired from Fox News during an episode of Tucker on X.

Tucker Carlson reveals how being fired from Fox News helped him

Tucker Carlson traveled to the Eastern European country of Hungary for an interview with the country’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán.

During an interview with one of Orbán’s top political advisors, Carlson offered some insight into how being fired from Fox News was actually a benefit to him.

Carlson said that being fired kept him from getting too big of a head because it made him realize he was just like everyone else.

He added that he was “grateful” for having gone through it.

“I’ve loved it,” Carlson said. “I mean, thankfully the people I worked with on my show were also fired with me. My executive producer, Justin Wells — we’ve been together for many years, very close — and he got fired two minutes after I got fired, and I said ‘I’m so glad you got fired.’”

Wells and most of the crew behind Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox have migrated over to his new show.

“So, my world hasn’t changed that much actually and I’ve been with the same woman for 39 years, and I have a very large and very close family, and the people I work with haven’t changed, and my dogs — we have a lot of dogs — they’re still there. So, my life hasn’t changed that much.”

Being fired was a humbling experience for Carlson after years at the top of cable news.

“This is my third time being fired as an adult, and I would recommend it to anybody. It’s great to get fired because it keeps you from being a truly horrible person,” Carlson added. “I mean, we’re all sort of horrible people because we’re people. But, getting fired, you know, the problem with men when they’re successful is they start to think they’re Jesus. It just happens. And you get this hubris like ‘I can do anything, I’m so important.’”

Carlson said that Fox News was “really nice” to him during his 14-year run at the network and declined to say anything bad about his former employer.

Tucker Carlson took being fired from Fox News in stride and began building his own media empire.
