Another cynical financial decision by the Murdochs and Fox to decrease their legal vulnerability in the Grossberg suit and the pending Smartmatic case. The only time Fox ever does anything is when their money cash cow is threatened.
As Rupert Murdoch himself said in a deposition related to the Dominion case on why Fox continued to have Mike Lindell, of MyPillow infamy and known conspiracy theorist, on the air and ran his MyPillow ads "It is not red or blue, it is green." i.e. money is more important than any else, more than journalism, more than democracy, more than justice and, certainly, more than truth.
Jesse Watters likely will be the one to take Carlson's spot and, like his Fox masters, will be more than glad to continue to spew the lies and cultural demonization for a huge payday. And that is Fox's ultimate lesson: money is everything, all else is merely noise.
