NBC News contacts Fox News advertisers, turns up heat on Tucker Carlson after Buffalo shooting

Corporate media continues moving their ideological goalposts and insisting anything short of full prostration before the woke cause du jour is somehow furthering atrocities. In labeling the right as the root of all evils, a renewed push to shame any party tangentially associated with conservatives has commenced and it includes the advertisers for Fox News.

Whether it be free speech or free market capitalism, the left despises that which can’t be controlled. Since they can’t outdo Fox News in the ratings and they have yet to successfully pressure legislative action against the network, they’ve resorted to somewhat of a proxy war against some of the largest streams of revenue for the network.

Following the shooting in Buffalo, talking heads across the platforms have pointed fingers at Republicans and the promotion of “hateful Right-wing rhetoric” as being responsible for the suspect’s motivations. So, NBC News reached out to those buying ad spots on Fox to see if they’ll continue to be a party to this alleged complicity.

“NBC News contacted spokespeople for 14 corporations that reportedly advertise on Fox News, including General Motors and WeightWatchers, and asked if their companies planned to continue advertising on the network following the tragedy in Buffalo,” the article explained.

The ladies of ABC’s “The View” rode this bandwagon Monday as well with co-host Ana Navarro stating Monday, “I think it’s time to name names and point fingers…If you are an advertiser advertising on that station, you are part of the problem.”

Of course, it’s likely purely coincidental that the pressure on advertisers fell at the same time that Fox News was having their annual “upfronts,” what NBC reported as the “yearly industry event in New York where network executives encourage corporations to purchase advertisements on-air.”

As expected, the push was specifically targeting primetime host Tucker Carlson. “In a statement,” NBC reported, “General Motors said: ‘We do not advertise on Tucker Carlson or other similar shows, though we do advertise on Fox News.’ When asked if the company plans to continue to advertise on the network, a GM spokesperson pointed NBC News back to the original statement.”

They went on, “WeightWatchers does not advertise on Carlson’s show. The company’s communications office did not reply to a subsequent email asking if it planned to continue to advertise on Fox news.”

The veneer of their efforts was fairly easy to see through for anyone who cared to look.

In fact, the partisan hackery was on full display from the very opening of the article that listed progressive activists as a source for pointing out the connection between Carlson’s show and the ills of the world.

The tangential claims that included citing other hit pieces like The New York Times report on Carlson that combed through all of his episodes are blatantly pathetic. If Fox News were as bad as they claimed, it wouldn’t take intense digging to find a half-hearted reference to anything as being the source on any extremists point of view.

But, that appears to be all they have to go on as they continue pushing to suppress any voices that don’t tow the progressive lines. Carlson himself called out the extreme lengths that have been taken and noted, “So, if you were to quote Martin Luther King Jr., whose monument stands on the mall, and say that the U.S. government ought to treat people based on who they are and what they do and not how they look and how they were born, should assess people on the content of their character, not the color of their skin – if that’s your position, you are by definition” — according to progressives he showed in a montage — “a White supremacist.”
