Dan Shelley, executive director of the Radio Television Digital News Association, took to USA Today to call out Fox News Channel for its interviews with President Donald Trump — conducted by Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson — following his joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but praised Chris Wallace’s one-on-one with Putin.
Fox News’s Tucker Carlson has strong words for NBC News, specifically its president Noah Oppenheim. “Noah Oppenheim ought to resign immediately, and if he doesn’t, he ought to be fired immediately. News executives are not allowed to tell lies. They’re not allowed to participate in cover ups.”
21st Century Fox issued a statement Wednesday that “after a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.” He had been scheduled to return from a vacation next Monday. It marks a stunning end to a near-perfect marriage between a pugnacious personality and network.
Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson will interview President Donald Trump in what’s being billed as “a wide-ranging conversation” that will air during Wednesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight. Carlson’s first one-on-one sit-down with Trump since Election Day will occur in Detroit.
