What Tucker Carlson’s departure means for Fox News

Immediately after Carlson’s departure was announced, fans and detractors started discussing his exit, with both sides critical of Fox News for different reasons. Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, denounced Carlson, tweeting that he used Tucker Carlson Tonight and Fox News to “spread misinformation and harm LGBTQ people.” Bridget Todd, director of communications for the women’s group Ultraviolet, described him as “one of the nation’s most prolific mouthpieces for white supremacy, misinformation, and misogyny. By providing Tucker with a platform on national TV for so long, Fox News has done extensive damage to our democracy. Good riddance, Tucker Carlson.”
