Job Opening at Fox
“But during the last thirty years, this artificial reality has collapsed like a house of cards; the demons which haunted the brains of those outcasts have invaded the world of men and have become its masters. The old landmarks of good and evil and truth and falsehood have been swept away and civilization is driving before the storm of destruction like a dismantled and helmless ship. The evils which the nineteenth century thought that it had banished forever — proscription and persecution, torture and slavery, and the fear of sudden death — have returned and with them new terrors which the past did not know. We have discovered that evil too is a progressive force and that the modern world has unlimited prospects for its development.” — The Judgement of the Nations by Christopher Dawson, 1942.
The exit of Tucker Carlson from Fox News felt like an earthquake in the news world. It came as a shock to those who watched his show, and was a mere flip of the wrist from his competitors and those who claim they no longer follow cable news. I learned about it from my sister, who called me from another state, who heard it on the radio. Tucker was a popular commentator with a mere hour-long program. Yet his appeal went beyond the confines of his seat at Fox. Why?
He seemed to go to the edge when he presented. Tucker brought guests to us that witnessed and lived through storm after storm to tell their survival story when other outlets were banning commentary. For example, the Covid shots and severe after effects, the Canadian Truckers and their standoff against big government mandates, the presidential election and election integrity, gender ideology in grade school books, and many other subjects. He allowed his guests a forum to talk and tell us what is happening to our culture, our kids, our freedom, and our democracy. No topic was off limits and he seemed to care about their suffering and shared their concerns.
