Tucker Carlson Announces ‘Long-Planned Vacation’ After Racist Writer’s Resignation

Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed Monday night the resignation of his former top writer Blake Neff, who resigned last week after CNN reported on his long history of pseudonymously posting racist and bigoted remarks on an online forum that openly trafficked in racist content.

Tucker Carlson Announces ‘Long-Planned Vacation’ After Addressing Racist Writer’s Resignation

Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed Monday night the resignation of his former top writer Blake Neff, who resigned late last week after CNN reported on his lengthy past history of pseudonymously posting racist and bigoted remarks on an online forum that openly trafficked in racist content. Carlson then announced he was taking a “long-planned vacation.”

It came across as a both-sides argument, in which he said that while what Neff wrote was wrong, those in the media should be careful with their “self-righteousness.”
