Tucker Carlson in behind-the-scenes leaked video BLASTS Fox Nation

A video that was leaked to leftist hit site Media Matters shows former Fox News host Tucker Carlson slamming the Fox Nation streaming service, stating that “nobody watches Fox Nation because the site sucks” and doesn’t “work.”

Not only does he tell the caller that he doesn’t like the Fox Nation site, he also makes it clear because of glitches, etc. that he would prefer to post his interviews online and “dump the whole thing on YouTube.”

“I don’t want to be a slave to Fox Nation, which I don’t think that people watch anyway. We’re gonna — because, you know, I’m like a representative of the American media now, speaking to an exile in Romania and welcoming him back into the brotherhood of journalists,” Carlson told the unknown person he was speaking with on the leaked video from Media Matters.

“It would help us out if you wore a sweater, though, because we asked him not to wear a suit like he was panicking about it. So ‘you don’t have to— Tucker’s going to be looking casual, that’s just how the show looks,'” the person on the other end of the call responded.

“Is that OK?” the caller asked.

“I mean, this is airing on the nighttime show, and I want it to look official. I don’t want it to be like bro talk. And I, and I, you know what I mean?” Carlson finally responded after several seconds of silence.

“Yeah, but the majority of it, like, if we go, like, 45 minutes, it’s going to be for Fox Nation,” the caller replied.

“But nobody’s going to watch it on Fox Nation. Nobody watches Fox Nation because the site sucks. So I’d really like to just put the — dump the whole thing on YouTube. But anyway, that’s just my view. OK. I’m just frustrated with it. It’s hard to use that site. I don’t know why they’re not fixing it. It’s driving me insane. And they’re like making, like, Lifetime movies. But they don’t, they don’t work on the infrastructure of the site. Like what? It’s crazy. And it drives me crazy because it’s like we’re doing all this extra work and no one can find it. It’s unbelievable, actually. I don’t know who runs that site, but…” Carlson asserted.

“We’re gonna play a sizable chunk on the show tomorrow night. That’s the plan. And then what he’s going to do is drive a lot of people to watch this on Fox Nation. It’s going to be a great help to what we’re doing over there on TC Today,” the caller told him.

“I know, but we’re doing our part. We’re like working like animals to produce all this content, and the people in charge of it, whoever that guy’s, whatever his name is, like, they’re ignoring the fact that the site doesn’t work. And I think it’s like a betrayal of our efforts. That’s how I feel. So I, of course, I resent it,” Carlson truthfully told the caller.

Media Matters is blowing up the call to make it appear scandalous. In reality, it appears that Carlson was trying to be professional and was frustrated with the Fox Nation streaming service and site.

It also is potentially a coordinated and scripted leak to try and make him look bad and many feel is probably the first of many.
