A Fox Exodus is Underway…

We all know that since canning Tucker Carlson, Fox News has been suffering, to the least. But now, it appears there’s a bit of an exodus going on at the media outlet – and most are running straight to Carlson and his new venture.

In a recent series of tweets beginning on Saturday, Carlson’s biographer Chadwick Moore claimed that a number of former Tucker Carlson Tonight employees have since left their positions at Fox and joined Tucker in his new business endeavors – nine of them so far and more leaving by the day.

“My sources have now told me *NINE* former Tucker Carlson Tonight staffers have left Fox News to join Tucker on his next. There are others who are waiting to leave as soon as a role opens up for them with Tucker. Each of the 9 approached Tucker, not the other way around.”

In another tweet, Moore claimed that several more Fox employees and “familiar faces from” Tucker’s old show are “refusing” to appear on Fox at all.

According to Moore, Carlson’s team was pretty close, more like a slightly dysfunctional family than just a bunch of coworkers. And many had been there for quite a while, since the beginning. So when Tucker was fired, promptly ending the show, it was a massive blow to all involved.

Unsurprisingly, many have decided to stay loyal to their former boss rather than the higher-ups at Fox.

But it’s not just Tucker’s former employees who are leaving Fox.

Alexander McCaskill, a producer for Carlson’s show, has also since left the company. As has a senior editorial producer of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Thomas Fox, and an executive producer of the show, Charles Couger.

It just goes to show that true loyalty and trust can’t be bought or expected. It’s earned. And Tucker Carlson sure has earned a lot of it.
