Will Fox News stand behind Tucker Carlson amid fight with Biden NSA?

According to The Blaze’s Steve Deace, Fox News has a difficult decision to make with regard to its top host, Tucker Carlson. 

The decision that Fox has to make, according to Deace, is whether to stand behind Carlson or not, given his claim that he is being spied on by the National Security Agency (NSA). As we will see, Fox has no easy answer here.

Background

In case you missed it, about two weeks ago now, Carlson made the claim that the NSA was spying on his online communications. Carlson said that he got this information from a whistleblower in the U.S. government and that this whistleblower told him that the agency was planning to leak Carlson’s communications in order to hurt his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

The NSA issued a statement in response to Carlson’s claim. In that statement, the agency claimed that Carlson is not an “intelligence target.” But, as Carlson subsequently noted, what the NSA did not deny in that statement was that it had read Carlson’s online communications.

Just this week, Carlson made a television appearance on Fox Business, where he claimed that he now has proof that the NSA has been spying on his online communications. He said that a journalist that he talked to knew the contents of one of his emails, emails that no one but Carlson and his executive producer had access to.

Carlson said that “there’s just no possibility that anyone else could have known.” This led him to the conclusion that the NSA leaked the email just as the government whistleblower told him that the agency would.

House Republicans are said to be investigating this whole matter. But, in the meantime, Carlson has been suffering the wraths of critics who have accused him of such things as paranoia.

Fox’s predicament

Deace, in his article, suggested that the way we know that Carlson is telling the truth about being spied on by the NSA is that he is still employed by Fox. But, as Deace noted, Fox “ain’t what it used to be.”

Deace went on to point out that Carlson’s show “goes beyond the trite Team GOP talking points that dominate much of Fox programming,” but Fox has let Carlson continue doing his thing because of the amount of money that Carlson pulls in.

Deace concluded his article by explaining the situation that Fox is in. He argued that Fox has to hold on to Carlson for the time being because “if Tucker is right about being targeted for a take-out and Fox runs him, that is the end of their brand. For they have branded themselves as swamp simps.”

On the other hand, Deace opined that if Carlson crosses a certain line, that he would expect “Fox News to bail,” under the premise that, even without Carlson, viewers will still watch because there is nowhere else for them to go.

We’ll have to keep an eye on this one.

  11. If the FOX Network can’t support the truth, which it seems has been their long term tradition, then this country has truly gone over the edge of a constitutional republic! Stay the course, you’re the only network with the truth, although your fair and balance MO seems to borderline with some of the radicals you choose to call balanced; hell they’re downright talking points for the radical left! Ie: Juan Williams, Leslie (of CA fame); etc.

    1. Delete Tucker Carlson and your ratings take a nose dive, you already have lost millions of viewers because of the AZ call and Chris Wallace is still there…Don’t count on nowhere else to go, there are other conservative stations doing well. NewsMax is one and OANN is another. I use to watch Fox 24/7, not anymore I only watch a few things now and Tucker is one of them….Take him off and many will be gone, you are hanging by a thread as it is…

      1. I am with you ,FOX is no longer on 24/7 at our house either , and We only watch at night and a bit in the morning until Newsmax comes on , FOX has lost face with me and if I see Wallace or Cavuto or Arthel , John Roberts ,Sandra Smith ,Leslie Marshall ,Jessica Tarlov ,,Marie Harf ,I feel like SMASHING MY TV, these are just a few of the commies that have helped sink their viewership

  12. Newsmax & OAN are coming up fast on the outside. If Fox bags Tucker, they eat a big multi-year deal or agree to let him out and he’s at the other network in a day. Fox then can turn off the cameras because they’ll be done.

    1. Hey A J, I used to watch FOX exclusively, now I only watch Tucker, Sean, Laura and Greg. The rest of the daily shows suck big time. I only watch Mark, Jesse. And the Judge on weekends.

  13. Newsmax, Epoch news are 2 places that would welcome tucker. also OAN. what would FOX do about FOX Nation then/

  14. tucker is a true American we all love and respect his opinion if he said their spying on him believe me there spying on him.the FBI is as dirty as they come and HLS the clintons started this crap with there money laundering all democrats are crooked. ill stay with tucker where ever he goes he is your best man on you show and Hannady is another person you can trust

  15. Newsmax Is waiting for Tucker. Fox better wise up and listen to the Tucker and Hannity supporters or they are going to drop lower then CNN.

  16. My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once dsdsdI tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

  21. Fox don’t be too sure of yourself thinking people won’t leave you and go to Newsmax if you get rid of Tucker. Leave our Heroes on Fox alone owners. We will leave you again bit for good this time.

  22. They want to say Tucker Carlson is paranoid? Is this the same way they accused President Trump of being paranoid? If Tucker Carlson says he’s being spied on, he’s being spird on. Remember they’ve already gone to his home, trying to intimidate his wife. I wouldn’t put one crooked move past the crooked communist DEMONcraps.

  23. Let’s just see what FOX does. If they abandon Tucker they have with one simple decision TOTALLY destroyed their entire network.

  24. Fox is already on shaky ground with it’s viewers’ mainly as a result of it’s change of political beliefs, and not backing Tucker would be their final demise with us. I already have learned to watch Newsmax TV and enjoy it, while only watching a lesser number of Fox shows than previously. Also, I don’t watch a few of their hosts at all, including Chris Wallace, Neil Cavuto and Geraldo Rivera, and turn of any show in which they appear.

  25. I thought that NSA admitted in a round about way that they spied on Tucker while spying on someone else Tucker was talking with someone who might be able to get Trucker an interview with Putin which I don’t believe is illegal trying to get an interview with someone even someone living in an enemy country. So why is NSA spying on another reporter who just happens to be talking to another reporter.
