Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed what he believes got him axed from his job at the network.
During Tucker’s time at Fox News, he was arguably the most popular host, with his show leading the competition in astronomical ratings.
However, when Carlson was fired, his fans were angry, and the network’s ratings took a major hit.
Speaking with sitcom legend Roseanne Barr on her podcast last week, Tucker opened up on what he believed were reasons he was taken off air.
“I didn’t expect to get, you know, my show canceled Monday morning,” Tucker began.
“But I wasn’t, if I took three steps back, I was not surprised at all.”
“First of all, television is like that. People get fired. There are all kinds of lines that no one will explain explicitly.”
“They were very nice to me the entire time I was there, but I could feel that they strongly disagreed in the war in Ukraine stuff,” he said.
“But they really didn’t like that at all. The January 6 stuff.”
During one of Carson’s shows, he suggested that federal agents had infiltrated and instigated the January 6 riot.
While the claims have not yet been verified, Carlson believes that was the case.
“I think a bunch of people quit over that,” he said.
“Chris Wallace should not be on television or Jonah Goldberg or you know what I mean?”
“These are people who obviously the audience hated and shouldn’t have been there in the first place, but they were so outraged because they said,” he added.
“You know, it seems like there probably a lot of feds in the crowd on January 6.”

Earlier this year, Carlson made stunning predictions about the upcoming presidential election.
The Daily Fetched reported Carlson voiced his concerns about the upcoming 2024 election, warning it won’t be between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
During a speech at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute event in Wilmington, Delaware, Tucker noted how the establishment is currently backed into a corner, and that anything could happen.
Despite the political attacks and indictments against Trump, Carlson noted that Biden is losing in the polls.
“They’ve done everything they can by legal means — which are in fact extra-legal means if we’re being totally honest, completely Third World stuff — to take the opponent out of the race, and they’re still losing,” he said.
“This is not going to be a race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump,” Carlson said.
Tucker on 2024: "This is not going to be a race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. This will be forced. These issues will be forced. Soon. It's about to get very serious. Everything is at stake. What wouldn't they do? What haven't they done? How will you prepare yourself?" pic.twitter.com/4zL7AKSoIh— TheBlaze (@theblaze) September 29, 2023
