Tucker Carlson’s exit from Fox News marks a new era of media in America. As a former Fox News personality himself, Glenn has had an insider look into the decline of the mainstream media—and yes, as Glenn maintains, Fox News IS mainstream. However, Tucker’s exit from Fox puts the nail in the mainstream media’s coffin: there are no longer any voices in the mainstream that are willing to stand up to the cultural narrative.
Tucker’s exit from Fox puts the nail in the mainstream media’s coffin.
Tucker was one of the most viewed and successful personalities in mainstream media. His last week at Fox drew 334,000 viewers in the coveted 25- to 54-year-old demographic in the 8 p.m. slot, beating out Fox’s other top personalities like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham and more than TWICE the audience of his CNN and MSNBC competitors in the same hour. On average, Carlson drew more than three million viewers for his night-time program among all demographics, regularly ranking as the most-watched primetime show on cable.
Yet this was nothing new.
Tucker has been the last remaining force in the mainstream media for YEARS, keeping the entire industry alive—even though MSNBC and CNN would never admit to it. With Tucker gone, there is no one within the mainstream who will challenge the mainstream narrative, whether that be from the right or the left.
And people know this.

The same day Tucker’s exit was announced, Fox’s stock fell 5.2 percent, losing a total of $800 million. The blow came after Fox settled with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million. That’s a total of more than $1.5 BILLION dollars in losses in just one week.
And Fox’s outlook continues to dim.
The ratings for Fox’s first 8:00 p.m. segment post-Tucker plummeted 26 percent, an ominous outlook for the rotation of hosts to fill in Tucker’s previous slot. Moreover, viewers are ending their Fox Nation subscriptions in droves. Though the subscription rates are kept close to the vest, Blaze News covered a massive movement that erupted on Twitter of former Fox Nation subscribers canceling their accounts, citing Tucker’s termination.
Glenn was one of the first public voices to warn about the decline of mainstream media. People thought he was crazy, but he saw how the growing volume of the establishment’s narrative in the media was suffocating the individual’s voice.
So he did something about it.
Glenn created BlazeTV as a haven for freedom of speech and the pursuit of truth in a world increasingly oppressive to these fundamental American ideals—and he did so for such a time as this.

If Tucker’s exit from Fox put the nail in the mainstream media’s coffin, then the burden on independent media and the individual’s responsibility to pursue truth is more evident than ever. And, as always, BlazeTV is rising to the challenge.
