Texts indicate Tucker wanted out at Fox News: ‘Wish I knew where to run. But I’ll die here’

More text messages from former Fox News host Tucker Carlson have magically surfaced from leftist networks detailing how he lamented to his network colleague Jesse Watters that he was unable to escape and would “die” there at the network.

Carlson has been gone for a few weeks from the network which has seen its ratings cratering. There has also been a never-ending leak of videos and texts that apparently are meant to smear the conservative former host but have, in reality, done just the opposite.

These particular texts are from December 2020 and were reportedly obtained by Confider, which is a Daily Beast newsletter. In them, Carlson spoke of the events surrounding former President Trump and his election loss.

In the Tucker-Baier texts Confider reported, the pair worried Fox could be ‘destroyed’ by the network’s early but accurate Arizona call, with Carlson adding: ‘I’ve got four more years here. I’m stuck with Fox. Got to do whatever I can to keep our numbers up and our viewers happy.,” according to Confider.

“It’s so sad,” Carlson allegedly wrote to Watters. “He’s going to break some sh*t. He already is. Wish I knew where to run. But I’ll die here.”

Media outlets are now claiming that Carlson was not happy at Fox News following the 2020 election. There is no solid proof of that as of yet. Another text being bandied about has to do with Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich.

“This girl apparently works for us in the ‘news’ division, though I’d be stunned if she’s ever broken a story,” he reportedly texted. “She was on Twitter last night calling out Hannity, and accusing Trump of planning to ‘steal’ the election. Can’t continue.”

Heinrich seems to have become a favorite talking point for leftists and the media. They have used her name to repeatedly attack Carlson.

“Please get her fired,” he reportedly texted fellow Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham shortly after the election. “Seriously… What the f***? I’m actually shocked. It needs to stop immediately, like tonight. It’s measurably hurting the company The stock price is down. Not a joke.”

That text has been recycled endlessly to take a jab at Carlson though it lacks context.

Mediaite is also resurrecting the text that Carlson reportedly had with Fox News anchor Bret Baier two days after the election. In that communication, Carlson appeared to be concerned that the network’s election coverage was insulting viewers.

“I continue to think the company isn’t taking the [sic] seriously enough,” Carlson texted Baier at the time. “We need to do something to reassure our core audience. They’re our whole business model.”

Contrary to the light those texts are being portrayed in, it appears that Carlson was looking out for the reputation of Fox News and its staff. It is not a crime to not respect one reporter or another. In fact, it would be odd not to.

The Daily Beast appears to be behind the leaks of these particular texts. Some of them were revealed as part of a filing by Dominion Voting Systems in its defamation lawsuit against Fox News just one week before the network canned him.

Media Matters and The New York Times have been behind the recently leaked videos attempting to smear Carlson.

Fox News has sent letters to Dominion lawyers demanding they put an end to the leaks of previously unreleased or redacted discovery material which includes the texts and videos.
