Fox News' Tucker Carlson said on the Thursday night episode of his program that his show has been targeted for cancellation.
What's more, he added, there has been a "cowardice and complicity" on behalf of the "entire media class in all of this," suggesting that eventually, reporters at legacy news outlets will be targeted as well.
Writing for Fox News' website, Carlson added that it may be part of a larger campaign to silence Fox News and other media, noting that some legacy news outlets have dedicated resources calling for the channel to be taken down. One columnist for The New York Times, he added, "has written three separate columns demanding that someone yank this news channel off the air immediately" and on Wednesday, "suggested that 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' was somehow guilty of terrorism and violence, something that we've opposed consistently for four years."
He added: "These are craven servants of the Democratic Party. They are feline, not canine. All of their aggression is passive aggression."
But over the past several weeks, there has been growing pushback against corporate media for their attempts to call for the cancelation of other media outlets and journalists.
The attempts to silence others is "now the prevailing ethos in corporate journalism," he said, adding that such organizations have no desire to take on "real power centers" such as the "military-industrial complex, the CIA and FBI, the clandestine security state, Wall Street, [and] Silicon Valley monopolies."
