The Daily Show on Wednesday taunted Tucker Carlson about one Rolling Stone report that Fox News compiled an “oppo file” on their former prime-time star that would serve as insurance against him badmouthing the network when he leaves.
In the comedy, correspondent Michael Kosta read out some of the entries from Carlson’s (fake) personnel file.
And Kosta, as the fake HR manager, summed it up best: “Not good, Tuck!”
Fox News announced Monday that Carlson and the network have “agreed to go their separate ways.” It was not clear at the time why the decision was made. The New York Times reported Wednesday in which Fox lawyers uncovered deeply offensive and crude messages from Carlson, which top executives learned just days before the network settled Dominion Voting Systems’ $787.5 million defamation lawsuit.
