Fox News firing Tucker Carlson turned out to be one of the biggest mistakes any media company ever made.

But the truth about why this fiasco happened is even worse than anyone thought.

And Fox News fired Tucker Carlson for one reason that will make you sick.

As Great American Daily reports:

Joe Biden funneled $140 billion worth of taxpayer money into the war in Ukraine.

At the same time Biden fought with religious fervor to secure Ukraine’s border, Biden left America’s southern border wide open leading to a historic wave of illegal aliens flooding the United States.

By Biden’s own admission the war against Russia over Ukraine – which is of no strategic value to American national security – pushed the world the closest it’s been to “nuclear Armageddon” than any point since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

Tucker Carlson was the most outspoken critic in the mainstream media of Biden’s globalist agenda in Ukraine.

And in an interview with British comedian Russell Brand, Carlson hinted at his criticism of the global elite’s pet project in Ukraine costing him his job.

After Fox News took Carlson off the air Semafor reported that Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch spoke by phone with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The two discussed the war and Murdoch was aware of the Ukrainian officials complaining that Carlson did not parrot the establishment line about the war.

“Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch held a previously unreported call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy this spring in which the two discussed the war and the anniversary of the deaths of Fox News journalists last March. The Ukrainian president had a similar conversation with Lachlan Murdoch on March 15, which Zelenskyy noted in a little-noticed aside during a national broadcast last month,” Semafor reported.

“The conversations came weeks before the Murdochs fired their biggest star and most outspoken critic of American support for Ukraine, Tucker Carlson. Senior Ukrainian officials had made their objections to Carlson’s coverage known to Fox executives, but Zelenskyy did not raise it on the calls with the Murdochs, according to one person familiar with the details of the calls,” Semafor added.

Carlson, as well as many supporters, wonder if these phone calls planted the seed for Murdoch to axe his top-rated host over the fact that Carlson would not support Joe Biden’s war in Ukraine.

The decision to take Carlson off the air proved disastrous for Fox News.

After putting Carlson on ice, Fox News lost over one million viewers across their entire primetime lineup.

Fox News never gave an explanation for sending Carlson packing.

Was the Fox News secrecy about the rationale for firing Carlson rooted in the fact that Murdoch and other executives knew it would run off even more viewers if it came out Carlson got fired for criticizing Joe Biden and the globalists for caring more about Ukraine’s border than America’s?
