Here’s what happened…

Fox News host Tucker Carlson drew criticism for saying white supremacy is “actually not a real problem in America” and that claims to the contrary are a “hoax” only three days after a white supremacist killed 22 people in El Paso, TX. Advertisers have since left Carlson’s show and even Fox News as a whole.

Carlson announced that he was “taking several days off — headed to the wilderness to fish with my son.” A Fox spokesperson later insisted to CNN’s Oliver Darcy that Carlson’s vacation was preplanned and he will return to his show on August 19. This isn’t the first time a Fox News host has abruptly taken a vacation while embattled:

  • In March, Jeanine Pirro’s show was taken off-air for two weeks after she questioned Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) patriotism, suggesting that Omar’s hijab means she opposes the Constitution. It is unclear whether her absence was a formal suspension or a vacation; Fox did not confirm the suspension, and Pirro did not announce a vacation. Pirro’s Fox Nation show 10 Minute Justice has not returned since the controversy.
  • In March 2018, Laura Ingraham announced she was going on vacation after drawing criticism — and consequently losing advertisers — for mocking Parkland survivor and student activist David Hogg. Inrgaham also apologized to Hogg on her show after facing mounting pressure.
  • In May 2017, Sean Hannity went on a vacation after losing advertisers for continually pushing a conspiracy theory about murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, which had led Rich’s family to sue Fox News.
  • Jesse Watters went on vacation in April 2017 after making a comment about presidential adviser and daughter Ivanka Trump that was widely criticized as inappropriate.
  • In April 2017, then-host Bill O’Reilly went on a vacation after The New York Times reported that he settled five sexual harassment allegations for millions of dollars. O’Reilly was fired before he came back and Fox moved Carlson to his time slot.

  1. That`s how far left we have come in this country? The entire country has got some bullets for you cork suckers. You have run out of time when you can let go terrorist out of Gitmo to go back and do it again. You`re done when you can sell uranium to our enemies and think you can get away with it. I`m waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  2. don lemonhead can say White males are the biggest Threat to the country And you Dont hear a Peep about it,And Tucker said what he said and they want him Boycotted!!?? Just goes to show,Wanna stay outta trouble,feel free to Degrade White people ALL you Want,And If you ARE White,Dont even THINK of Defending yourself!! Just hung your head and say,Yes,We White people Suck,Only have Privilege ,Never made a contribution to the world and enslaved the whole world for our benefit. Maybe SOMEDAY we*ll grow a “pair” again,Until then,Pucker up and Keep kissin ass! Semper Fi

    • I’ll Never apologize for being born white , and no one in their right mind should . All this is is the liberals way to keep charged the racism narrative obama started . Before him things were going Great and All Good people realized that Everyone was accepting of their neighbor . The dems ran out of ideas after everyone saw what a Fraud obama was And they had nothing to offer . Next thing you know they had to make fake “ racism “ their platform . The libs suck at offering real solutions to Everyday hard working Americans ! They’re loosing the black vote because many See Trump is the real deal and cares ! He’s done more for minorities in his almost 3 years than obama in 8 !

  3. What a big bunch of nothing ! 1st of all too many Snow flakes equate White Supremacy with an average Copnservatie who is God feraring, honest usually with a family and works at a normal job tjhe difference is we dislike illegal immigrants and the favorable treatment they reciueve! MAY OR MAY NOT BE A GUN OWNER (MANY ARE NOW BECOMING ONE) Mainly it is a Deomcrat/Socialist hoax just like “Racism” It is any one who disagrees with gun control, not approved by Muslim instruction of our kids, taxing working people to give $ to thjose who wont or dont work. Tucker is a voice or reason in this screwed up world. It is my hope that NewsMax or OOAN or maybe e a totally new site will be born and take all of the Fox starrs so we can get the truth fully again. I no am no longer a Fox fan I now only watch Fox Business News for the truth

  4. HEY FOX NEWS…………………..YOU FIRE T CARLSON AND ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WILL BE BOYCOTTING YOU. THESE ADVERTISERS MUST NOT CONTROL YOU ….SO DON’T LET THEM TELL YOU WHAT TO DO OR WE WILL BOYCOTT YOU.

  5. Fox onwer ‘s kids are little liberal control by their butch wives. Liberals are nothing but soulless puppets for the nazi regime. Too stupid to understand that. They fire Trucker fox news is done.

  6. TUCKER WAS RIGHT AND THE JUDGE WAS RIGHT AND HANNITY WAS RIGHT AND O’RIELY WAS RIGHT AND IF THE IDIOTS RUNNING FOX NOW CONTINUE TO TAKE FOX FOLKS DOWN ON THE BITCHING OF THESE G-DAMN MARXIST PROGRESSIVE PANSIES THEY SHOULD STEP DOWN AND HIRE A TRUE AMERICAN TO RETURN FOX TO THE ORIGINAL HONEST NEWS ORGANIZATION IT WAS WHEN THE OLD MURDOCK AND AILES WAS RUNNING IT!

    • I AGREE TOTALLY WITH YOU. THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT CAN WE CRITICAL THINKING INDIVIDUALS DO BESIDES VOTEING?? The damage the liberals can between now and then can be in repairable.

  7. MSM are a bunch of liars and their hosts are too stupid to accurately report anything. Fox is the preferred channel for real news! The others are too stomach turning to listen to.

  8. Them top honchos who say what goes or “call the shots” at FOX NEWS .. these need to grow more than just a spine. For as many years that I’ve watching FOX NEWS, I’ve never seen nor heard Mr. Tucker Carlson, Ms. Jeanine Pirro or, any other leading host for FOX NEWS, dish out any of the level of maliciousness, perversity and lies .. to be equally compared to that of the (not news) toxic filth, the deceit and hate that just keeps on coming out from out of the loud-mouth deceivers from CNN or MSNBC. As a matter of fact, any of them “fat cats” at FOX NEWS should be proud of their having decent, honest, intelligent, most fair and beautiful people working for such a respectful, reliable and trust worthy establishment.

  9. If Tucker Carlson goes, so does FOX. Interesting that FIC censors and suspends conservatives or those who don’t bow down to and pander liberal/progressives. Yet FOX keeps people like Juan Williams and Donna Brazile (The one who CNN who has no morals and integrity at all fired because she gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance ) who both have said some far worse disgusting vulgar treasonous comments against President Trump, his family, his administration and his supporters with no censorship at all from FOX.

  10. AS Long as FOX has Hannity they will survive. I stream Hannity so I don’t have to watch FOX and accidentally have to see or listen to that scumbag Shepherd Smith.

  11. I’m white and for some reason I haven’t received any white checks in the mail and my tax rates are the same as everyone else. Did someone make a mistake? Am I not entitled to something extra?

  12. Yet The Democrats can run Republicans out of a restaurant , RED HEN ! Maxine Waters calls for Democrats to get up in your faces , Jessie Smollett can make a FAKE ATTACK BY WHITE RACIST TRUMP SUPPORTERS ! Roseann Barr get taken off the air for joking about Janet looking like a Ape, Democrats go to Mitch McConnell’s house and threatens to stab Mitch McConnell in the Heart ! Quote ” Stab The Mo**er in the HEART ! Unquote ” Hillary Clinton A basket of Deplorable s ! ” Thad be Me ” Just to name a few , TRUMP 20/20 MAGA ! Let’s give The Democrats 4 more years of TRUMP ! Hopefully that should push them all over the EDGE ! Good riddance

  13. Well I agree with Carlson he is telling it as it is. The communist left were trying to take this country down has been labeling all white man they been calling out white supremacist which is a damn lie they don’t call out the black lives matter group is terrorist group from the communist party, they don’t call her and Tifa and Tif well I agree with Carlson he is telling it as it is. The communist left were trying to take this country down has been labeling all white man they been calling out white supremacist which is a damn lie they don’t call out the black lives matter group is terrorist group from the communist party, they don’t call her and ANTIFIA , They always blow up whatever they want to blow up to make the white people in this country look bad. They are disgraceful bunch the media they are the worst terrorist group in this country next to the communist Democrat party and the whores in the bar! They blow everything out of context to make people believe that it’s always this bad about women it’s this bad about children whatever it is they want to blow up a story about demeaning the white guy! Buy that what they just said then all the Democrats are just as guilty and they are for a fact for the one shooter was Elizabeth mentally I’ll supporter,That’s worn and the shoes are both mentally ill! This is a prerequisite to be a part of the Democrat party.
