It Was Long Time Coming.

Fox News is a RINO network, a euphemism for being a uniparty's propaganda outlet from "the right". Most of what is produced there is a Reagainite neoliberal fodder and pseudo-patriotic rah-rah, which would fit well Top Gun: Maverick type of reality. Tucker was a very lonely voice of common sense there. 

Fox News announced on Monday that the network and its prime-time anchor Tucker Carlson have mutually agreed to end their association after more than a decade. “FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor,” the US broadcaster said, adding that Carlson aired his final show last Friday. Fox expressed gratitude to Carlson “for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.” Neither Fox nor Carlson have offered an explanation for the break-up. The network did say that last Friday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight will be the last, and that a newscast will be aired in its stead starting Monday evening. Shares in the network’s parent company, Fox Corporation, slid by 4.7% after the announcement.

So, everything what happens now was a long time coming and is only natural. Was it a Dominion "thingy"? Likely but, probably, not the only factor in Tucker's departure. Very little doubt that he was a very serious media obstacle to narrative and that irritated very many people in what becomes increasingly delusional American political discourse. Fox could be congratulated with becoming finally a tabloid, as are all US MSM, while Tucker, I am positive, will find another platform.
