After being ousted from his prime-time show at Fox News Channel, commentator Tucker Carlson appears to be more popular than the network that fired him – especially among conservatives and Republican voters.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that 59% of likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of Carlson, including 36% who have a "very favorable" opinion of him.
Thirty-four percent (34%) view Carlson unfavorably, including 25% with a "very unfavorable" impression.
Carlson’s favorability rating is higher than Fox News, which is viewed favorably by 52% of voters, including 24% with a "very favorable" opinion.
Forty-two percent (42%) view Fox News unfavorably, including 28% with a "very unfavorable" impression.
Ratings at Fox News have slumped since Carlson's departure.
Only 19% of voters believe the departure of Tucker Carlson will make Fox News better, while 32% think Carlson’s exit will make the network worse.
Forty-one percent (41%) say the departure of Carlson will not make much difference at Fox.

William Bayer says
Opinions about Fox News should be split into two categories --- Fox TV News and the Fox website.
For much of the time I've been visiting it, the Fox website has leaned farther left than Fox TV. And at the present time, the Fox website comment section is largely democrats (many sent to the website by Media Matters) dominating comments related to articles that usually have more of a democrat twist compared with Fox TV.
The Fox website also engages in rampant shadow-banning, more during the day than during night hours.

Fox News has been (is) controlled
resistance, from the time top
management had COWARDLY
buried its multi-part investigative
report, about Israeli ‘“Art Students”
having (very) closely “shadowed”
those 9/11 terrorists. ( curiouser
and curiouser !—that deeply
buried report )..
