Tucker Carlson’s firing has sent shockwaves through American politics.
No one saw this coming, and it could change things forever.
In this episode of Making the Argument, Nick Freitas shows how this could be the downfall of the corporate media.
Ever since he took over as host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, Tucker Carlson has been one of the most influential voices in American politics.
He has heavily influenced the Republican Party, including on issues of foreign policy and the surveillance state.
But now he has been fired from Fox News after they settled a defamation suit with Dominion Voting Systems. Fox is having to pay Dominion $787.5 million over claims that they made after the 2020 election.
Tucker’s firing and the Dominion lawsuit are both bad news for Fox News, and they could be bad news for corporate media in general.
More and more people every day are getting their news from places like Substack, or podcasts like Making the Argument, where information is unfiltered by the corporate ownership that most media companies operate under.
In this episode of Making the Argument, Nick Freitas shows how media is changing, and how the news of the past few days could accelerate that change.
