    Fox News Reminded of Fun Fact After Tucker Releases New Video – Just Look at How Many Views It Has

    Published on

    After his dismissal from Fox News, Tucker Carlson may very well take his audience with him.

    On Tuesday, the former prime-time cable news host uploaded a video to Twitter that was greeted with massive interest from his devoted audience.

    By Wednesday morning Eastern time, the video, in which Carlson announced his intention to begin hosting a nightly Twitter-streamed program, had received nearly 18 million views.

    “Starting soon, we’ll be bringing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter,” Carlson said.

    In the announcement, Carlson praised Twitter’s renewed commitment to free expression under Elon Musk’s ownership.

    As of Wednesday morning, 77 million people had viewed the tweet containing the video.

    Fans of Carlson noted that the video was virtually guaranteed to garner far more interest than any Fox News programming in the wake of the host’s dismissal.

    This fascination was evident from the moment Carlson’s video was made available to the general public.

    These numbers had to remind Fox executives of one fact that demonstrated Carlson’s popularity with the network’s target demographic:

    His first video after abruptly leaving Fox News destroyed the cable news ratings of his former Fox News colleagues.

    Carlson’s 2-minute video, which was published on April 26, two days after his dismissal from Fox, received more than twice as many views as the network’s prime-time lineup for the previous two days combined.

    Carlson demonstrated the ability to almost always secure the top slot in Fox cable ratings, a position that assured him overall first place in cable news.

    Many of the host’s viewers are wondering why he was fired from the network, which is ultimately controlled by media magnate Rupert Murdoch, whose empire also includes The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post.

    One indication of Carlson’s popularity is that the New York Post published his video to its own YouTube page — and comments were overwhelmingly positive. CONTINUE READING…
