Tucker Carlson, the conservative voice of Fox News who was recently removed from the network, may have been ousted because of America’s largest investment firm, BlackRock. This company, which controls $8.6 trillion in assets and holds a 15% stake in Fox News, has been criticized by Carlson for its environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) investment strategies. BlackRock’s investments in Covid-19 vaccine maker Pfizer and various other companies were put at risk by Carlson’s anti-ESG messaging.

Carlson’s departure from Fox News coincided with losses suffered by BlackRock, which has been criticized for its “woke” capital management strategies. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, a vocal opponent of ESG, pulled $2 billion from BlackRock’s investments in December, and the company admitted anti-ESG messaging cost the company $4 billion in 2022.
Tucker Carlson parting ways with Fox News raises questions

While there is no concrete evidence that BlackRock fired Carlson, conservative political commentator Carl Higbie believes there is an “interesting trail of money” connecting Carlson’s detractors to the investment firm. Higbie, a host on Newsmax, outlined the potential evidence for BlackRock’s involvement in Carlson’s departure from Fox News.
It’s clear that Carlson was a powerful voice with a nightly audience of three million viewers. He was dismissed after a $787 million agreement between Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems to settle allegations brought by Carlson and others. Carlson released a cryptic video message to his followers recently, where he expressed his belief that “true things prevail” and “there is hope.”
For conservatives who rely on Tucker Carlson’s voice to bring them honest news and critical analysis, his abrupt removal from Fox News is suspicious. The potential involvement of BlackRock, a left-leaning investment firm, in Carlson’s removal only raises more questions about who truly controls the flow of information in America.
