Liberal watchdog group Media Matters has released a new behind-the-scenes clip of Tucker Carlson joking that anyone with pronouns in their Twitter bio shouldn’t be allowed to work with him at his former employer, Fox News.
Carlson, speaking as a staffer brushed his coat and hair, relayed a discussion he was having with another Fox employee who had many liberal staff members working for her.
“If you’ve got pronouns in your Twitter bio you shouldn’t work here because we can’t trust you because you’re on the other side… Roger [Ailes] would never put up with this s***,” Carlson said, referencing the man who built the Fox network for Rupert Murdoch.
“Why would you do that? They see this as war,” laughed Carlson.
JUST IN: Media Matters just released their next behind the scenes Tucker Carlson clip.

Media Matters, founded by former Bill and Hillary Clinton ally David Brock, has circulated other clips of Carlson in recent weeks in an attempt to show the host making crude, racist, and sexist comments that ostensibly should prove why he was unfit to continue hosting his primetime show.
The internet’s reaction, however, was far from what the group may have hoped for.
We like Tucker more now

Since parting ways with Fox on April 24th, Carlson has released his own cryptic videos that don’t reveal much in the way of his future career moves. More recently he appeared before a packed house in Alabama to headline a fundraiser for people with disabilities where he received a standing ovation.
A flurry of job offers has followed Carlson since Fox News removed him in the wake of its $787 million payment to Dominion Voting Systems to settle allegations that Carlson and others made defamatory statements about the company following the 2020 elections. One media outlet offered Carlson $100 million for a five-year contract while more established Fox competitors like Newsmax and One America News Network have expressed their enthusiasm about the chance to work with the conservative megastar. Others have speculated that Carlson has the following to make a serious bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
