Tucker Carlson’s thinly veiled racism has catapulted into full-throated white supremacy since he ascended to a prime-time spot on Fox News. Carlson constantly stokes fears about the cultural displacement of white Americans and the ongoing threat to the national culture purportedly posed by immigration and diversity.

He has the support of David Duke.

Several major companies have distanced themselves from Tucker Carlson Tonight in the wake of the host saying that immigration “makes our own country poorer, and dirtier, and more divided.”

This list from Media Matters will be updated when companies issue statements.

On his show last night, Tucker Carlson announced a sudden vacation. Fox News insists it was a “pre-planned vacation”. Bill O’Reilly took a “pre-planned” vacation after his sexual harassment settlements were disclosed & did not return. On the other hand, Laura Ingraham last year and Sean Hannity in 2017 each announced sudden vacations amid boycott calls yet both eventually returned.
