Rupert Murdoch ‘freaked out’ by “end-times” talk.

A source told Vanity Fair that the primary reason for Tucker Carlson being ousted by Fox News was because he gave a speech on Friday night in which he talked about spirituality and prayer, something that “freaks Rupert (Murdoch) out.”
Fox News announced on Monday that Tucker and the network will be parting ways, although he apparently remains on the payroll and has not technically been fired.
In the two days since, Fox News has refused to specify precisely why Carlson was let go, prompting speculation as to the real reason.

Vanity Fair Reports that Tucker’s speech at the Heritage Foundation’s 50th Anniversary gala three days before was the final straw.
During the speech, Carlson talked about how the situation was beyond debate and that the battle for America was a war between “good” and “evil,” characterized by the bitter tussle over transgenderism and abortion.
“We should say that and stop engaging in these totally fraudulent debates…I’ve tried. That doesn’t work,” said Carlson. “I have concluded it might be worth taking just 10 minutes out of your busy schedule to say a prayer for the future, and I hope you will,” he added.
According to Vanity Fair’s source, “That stuff freaks Rupert out. He doesn’t like all the spiritual talk,” the source said.
