They didn’t miss a beat over there at Lincoln Project. Earlier this morning Harris Faulkner sonorously intoned that Tucker Carlson was no longer with the network (I’m surprised she didn’t take off glasses, ala Walter Cronkite) and a few hours later we have this jewel.
Twitter is having a field day, “Tuck around and find out” as everyone looks for the great cosmic meaning in Carlson’s being fired.
Why oh why, Rupert? The crowds keen and wail. Everything from tea leaves to crystal balls are utilized as people phone their astrologers and throw the I Ching. Maybe Rupert just decided he was tired of Tucker’s face. People do get fired for that.
This is fun! Want to see all 44 thousand reels of this!

And it won’t surprise you that Russian TV has already tweeted at Carlson. Perhaps they might offer him a spot on their airwaves. It would certainly be the next logical step.
What is Rupert brewing up? A change at Fox News? A return to the halcyon days of Roger Ailes? Anything is possible at this point. Nobody was expecting Carlson to be canned. Bartiromo, yes, Pirro yes, but not Carlson and Hannity, those are the two golden boys of the network.
Let’s see what Hannity comes up with on his show tonight. And keep a sharp eye on Bartiromo and Pirro. They may be next out the door.
