This has left me speechless and just shaking my head

Weeks before Tucker Carlson was fired from Fox News, Fox Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch spoke privately with one of Carlson’s favorite on-air targets, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, according to a new report.
The report Sunday from Semafor did not suggest Carlson was fired by Fox News for opposing U.S. involvement in Ukraine’s war with Russia, something he had done for more than a year.
However, it adds to a series of reports indicating that everything from the way Carlson spoke about religion to private messages revealed during discovery in a lawsuit collectively put distance between the lords of Fox and Carlson.
The report said Zelenskyy’s conversation with Murdoch this spring came along with one with his son, Lachlan Murdoch, who directly oversees Fox News, on March 15.
Semafor reported that although Ukrainian officials had made their concerns about Carlson’s opposition to U.S. aid for Ukraine clear to Fox executives, “Zelenskyy did not raise it on the calls with the Murdochs, according to one person familiar with the details of the calls.”
A report Wednesday in The Washington Post also said Rupert Murdoch disliked Carlson’s stance on U.S. involvement in Ukraine.
The report, citing a source it did not name, said that in March, Murdoch joined in a Fox newsroom meeting to oppose Carlson’s position.
When the two men met for dinner in mid-April, the Post said, Murdoch “was disturbed by Carlson’s stance on Ukraine.”
SkyNews Australia host Andrew Bolt suggested last week that some of Carlson’s Ukraine allegations may have pushed Murdoch’s buttons once too often.
Carlson, Holt said, was “pushing dangerous and plainly false conspiracy theories” that claimed Ukraine was “hopelessly corrupt and the Biden team as liars for supporting it.”
Bolt added an overarching conclusion.
“The message is now out: If you threaten your station or your newspaper by going a bit nuts, you know, saying all sorts of wild things that maybe you know are false or maybe you haven’t even bothered to check enough, it doesn’t matter how big you are, you are never bigger than the media organization that actually made you,” he said. source

In my opinion, we’re hearing that old dodge of misinformation or disinformation of the “true” facts in spite of other sources that us seekers become aware of & have a gut feeling for truth or something not “passing the smell test”. Ruppert loves $ & his empire. His kids who aim to take over are in bed with the libs, more $ & are working out their inner “pecking” order at this time. The Zelensky thing only added fuel to the fire of disposing of the Carlson irritant. Gotta stay in step with the WEF.
If the corruption going on in Ukraine (a well known fact btw) goes on unchecked at our expense then lots of important crooks like our President Satan & his kid Satan jr., Zelensky & his no limit USA credit card scam + other curio examples like Satan & junior’s love fest with the CCP are off the hook cuz nobody dares to go after them. We don’t matter but the big shots do.
You never cease to make me laugh!! “President Satan and his son Satan Jr!!” No laughing matter I know, but the way you phrase things just makes me laugh – haha.
See, the thing is…no matter how nasty this crowd seems to be, we know that there’s somebody even nastier behind the scenes, pulling their strings from down below.
And, yeah, at first glance it seems as if he’s winning. For now. Ever played Risk? You get that one player that’s amassed a super army and he’s running hither and yon all over the board wreaking havoc. But, unless he manages to knock out every one of the other players on his turn…then the next player to turn in Risk cards annihilates him.
Satan’s trying to knock out as many of us as he can…or corrupt us, which for his purposes is even better. But he tried, and failed, to knock out our God. And it’s God’s turn next!
Well said, Eric!!
