Update: According to The Post, it was because he bad mouthed the company.
But it was Carlson’s comments about Fox management, as revealed in the Dominion case, that played a role in his departure from Fox, a person familiar with the company’s thinking told The Post.
This is unexpectedly fantastic news for this Monday morning: Tucker Carlson is done at Fox News, effective immediately. He will not appear again on the network. His last show was Friday. That’s it. He’s done.
According to a statement released by Fox News, the network and Carlson “agreed to part ways.” It seems unlikely that it was amicable. Carlson was responsible for many of the conspiracy theories and election denialism that led to last week’s $787 million settlement with Dominion as well as another likely settlement with Smartmatic. Carlson also hates Donald Trump “with a passion,” and he may have chosen to part ways so he didn’t have to carry water for the former President any longer.

I’m sure that more details will dribble out in the coming hours and days, but for now: We can all celebrate the end of that evil, unholy union.
