After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.
“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.
“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been dogged by ad boycotts from commercial terrorism entities like Sleeping Giants for telling the truth about the marxist Black Lives Matter revolution, but the whining of the snowflakes has not had much of an effect, as Carlson brings in tens of millions to Fox News.
According to MediaPost, ad revenues for prime time cable TV news shows have risen by 31.5 percent over the prior three-month period. Fox News did particularly well during this time period, rising 44.3 percent to $79.7 million, due to Carlson’s dominance as well as the success of Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.
Standard Media Index’s Accu-TV says that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” raked in $37.2 million, ahead of “The Ingraham Angle” and “Hannity” by a small margin. Other more left-leaning news networks also rose during the period, as the public becomes more tuned into the news with a presidential election coming into focus. CNN rose 28.4 percent to $45.7 million and MSNBC gained 11.8 percent up to $33.3 million.

Carlson is cultivating America’s patriot awakening during a time in which it is being besieged by the enemies of civilization.
If Fox News dumps Carlson, it will probably be the death blow to the beleaguered network that has fallen far since founder Rupert Murdoch’s retirement.
