Put on your bow tie, Tucker.  Surely, that will make someone happy.

The problem with conservatives is that they've all caught the moronavirus from Donnie and no vaccine will save them.

Well, of course. They care about money. If Tucker was eating babies nightly they'd be fine with it as long as the advertisers were.

They care about ratings even more.

Most advertisers will still pay for other shows. they can pay for Tucker with their $3 per cable subscriber carriage fees, among the most expensive channels for providers to carry.

This is the same company that dolled out $110m in sexual harassment settlement fees and severance packages in a period of 9 months.

They have absolutely no qualms over dropping millions if they can still rake in billions.

As I've said on other threads, the next move should be to de-platform Fox News from cable.

Ah, I see he's going with the Glenn Beck "shoot myself in the foot so many times by opening my mouth the only advertisers willing to touch my programming with a 10 foot pole are Buy Gold and reverse mortgage hucksters" strategy.

Bold moved, cotton.

OANN will still be there for them.  They have one funder who will never give them up, never let them down, never run around and desert... wait, no that is dessert, anyway.  Putin is the punchline.

Eh, run a few more MyPillow ads and you can make up for the loss

In fact, maybe *all* My Pillow ads.  With added copy

"Tonight!  Tucker Carlson, sponsored by MyPillow!  MyPillow!   Totally white, just the way you want!"

The chyrons can just scroll underneath 'MyPillow.  Not unproven to cure COVID.  MyPillow.  May accelerate to dangerous (and awesome!) speeds.  MyPillow.  100% pure synthetic material from US coal mines!  Do not taunt MyPillow...'

This. Fox is Murdoch's baby. He doesn't care if it's profitable. He just wants to smash as much stuff as possible before he dies.

Do people under 55 even watch cable news in large numbers anymore?  I understood most people watch Netflix or some other streaming service these days.

Saying you're the "highest rated cable news show" sounds about as impressive as "fastest telegram service".  There's more and better ways to get your news (or other entertainment) these days.

"I'm sorry I had to face consequences" is the closest thing to an apology you'll ever get out of a conservative or conservative organization.

After reading this guy's wikipedia page it all makes sense.

It would be interesting to see cable providers offer a progressive and conservative channel package.

The progressive would include MSNBC bit not FOX, maybe BET but not whatever NASCAR channel is out there.

Would be interesting to see what would happen to Fox if only their own viewers paid to carry it.

Free market capitalism at work!

I've actually thought about this a bit, and come to the conclusion that unless the management of a company is ideologically extreme and cares about that more than making money, they should never put their ads on a show that might turn out to be controversial. If there's ever a chance that you're going to be on the wrong side for half of your potential customers, effectively you're paying for the ad for nothing since it will push away as many customers as it gets you. Total waste of money.

Well. One of the reasons I dont carry tv with my internet is that I don't want to help.pay for stuff like Fox news.  I could easily inform my provider about it.

Uneducated, racist, and low income white people don't buy as much as educated, inclusive, and all income multiracial people do. Companies follow the money and use media to follow the market. Media follows the ads and if the companies don't dare talk to uneducated, racist, and low income white people, no one will talk to them. Advertisers make media possible.

3 bucks carrier fees.... lol

Try ESPN.  Back in 2001/2002 it was 9 bucks AND you hand to have espn2 as well.  Espn2 was another 4 bucks and you had to have espn3 on the next tier up from basic.

That's an interesting conundrum: Would they lose more viewers if he was doing a repugnant action, or if he was doing something "the libs do"?

Sorry, NASCAR is included with the libby lib package these days.

Conservatives are left with Dirt Track Fridays from their local dirt tracks. It's on public access the third Friday night of every month.

If I had a product that depended on suckers to buy it....I'd advertise on Cucker Tarlson.

Hmmmm...wanna buy some Antifaway spray? Spray it on your home or business to repel looters.  Guaranteed.

For how long has this garbage been advertising on Tucker's show? I'm glad they pulled it now, but let's not imagine that they're some kind of wonderful virtuous people.

Don't worry, Bernie Sanders will come on and do a town hall so they can get ad revenue again by being "non-partisan."

How could I already forget, NASCAR is with us now!

All that turning left finally got them there.

FOX would threaten to drop all their channels if cable companies start trying to make FOX News harder to get.

I doubt they're making billions. Disney said the reason they bought every bit of Fox Entertainment except for Fox News is because it's hemorrhaging money. They got Tucker, Hannity and maybe Fox And Friends (when Trump isn't rage-shiating on them), and that's it. The rest is dead space.

Carriage fees from cable providers is currently getting them $1.8 billion.

Cable companies pay the over the air networks to show those channels on cable now and they have been pulled off cable stations in the past during carriage disputes.

They are about to renegotiate their cable contract and there is a threat that it might be dropped from basic cable levels. The big thing is if they have to rely more on their advertisers Tucker and Ingraham will be gone

Who's he got left to lose? Marine le Pen Depends?

In other words, a big reason Tucker has turned on corporate America is because they will no longer sponsor his bilge.
