Reporter: This Is the Proposed Monologue That Got Tucker Fired From Fox
Bob Hoge

It was the bombshell media story of the year when Fox News unceremoniously fired top-rated host Tucker Carlson in April. Making that Monday morning even nuttier was the fact that CNN’s Don Lemon was also shown the door after annoying virtually everyone—staff, executives, co-hosts, and even every woman over 40.

Lemon’s firing was predictable, but Tucker’s came as a surprise, and speculation has abounded since on what caused the abrupt termination: was it part of the Dominion settlement? Was it related to a harassment suit (since dropped) by a former booker for the show? Was it because Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch was ticked off at Carlson because he wasn’t suitably critical of the January 6 protesters? The New York Times meanwhile theorized that it was because of an internal email where Tucker was watching a clip of Trump supporters surrounding an Antifa thug and commented, “It’s not how white men fight.”

But many have also thought that it was the contents of his planned monologue that evening that was the final nail in the coffin and that he specifically wanted to talk about Ray Epps. Author Chadwick Moore, who recently penned “Tucker: The Biography,” made essentially that argument in a recent video. Network brass tried to force Carlson to change the opening, the story goes, but Tucker was insistent that he be allowed to deliver it—and boom, he was done.
