Here we go again. The left just can’t stand the fact that FOX News is allowed to exist. And their new target is Tucker Carlson, or more specifically – his advertisers, who are now being encouraged to drop him.
This report is from CNN:
Advertisers abandon Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show over anti-immigration comments
More than a dozen companies have announced they will either pull or suspend their advertising from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show over comments about immigration he made last week.
Land Rover, IHOP, Ancestry.com, Just For Men, Minted, Smile Direct, Pacific Life, ScotteVest, Nerd Wallet, TD Ameritrade, Bowflex, CareerBuilder and Zenni had as of Tuesday afternoon all released statements saying that they would no longer advertise on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
The retreat from Carlson’s program came as liberal activists and organizations pressured companies to abandon the show.
Carlson, a conservative who has made the subject of immigration a hallmark of his program, made the comments that led to the advertisers’ decisions on Thursday night, when he said on his show that mass-immigration “makes our country poorer, and dirtier, and more divided.”
After an initial backlash that included at least three advertisers pulling their commercials, Carlson defended those comments on his show Monday night, showing images of trash left at the US-Mexico border and arguing that “huge swaths of the region are covered with garbage and waste” left behind by immigrants “that degrade the soil and kill wildlife.”
To be clear, Tucker was using the filthy mess left behind by the migrant caravan in Tijuana as an example. He showed images from the scene and it was a filthy mess. This is just being used as an excuse to target Tucker.
