Tucker Carlson Steals Trump Airtime From Fox Despite Being Under Contract With Fox

Sure, I'd prefer Fox News over CNN or MSNBC, but that doesn't mean that Fox News is ALWAYS right.

There aren't any objective news sources in America in 2023.

Fox News is a business first, and that means it's going to need to do whatever it takes to protect that business.

The business that the network is in?

Attention and ratings.

Do you know who would provide a WHOLE LOT of that?

Donald Trump.

Yet, instead of appearing in the GOP debate that's set to be hosted on Fox News, Trump is taking a different route.

He's going to give an interview to Tucker Carlson on Twitter.

That is Trump and Tucker's plan right now, at least. It remains to be seen whether or not Fox News is actually going to let them pull this off.

You see, Tucker Carlson is still under contract with Fox News.

That means that Fox News still has the authority to tell Tucker Carlson what to do. I doubt network brass are going to take very lightly the fact that Tucker Carlson is essentially stealing viewers from Fox News by providing Trump a platform during the time period that he should have been debating against his GOP rivals.

Considering the fact that Donald Trump leads the next closest Republican by over 40 points, I doubt that Donald Trump is too concerned about battling with those guys.

From his perspective, it might actually be smart to not put himself in a position to be relentlessly attacked about his indictments if he has this big of a lead.

What's the best that could happen, he increases his lead by a few points?

He's already doubling up the rest of the field.

Trump wants to control the narrative, and Tucker Carlson appears ready to let him.

But is Fox News?
