Fox News Reacts to Reports of Tucker Writer’s Horrifically Racist Online Comments
The comments were unfathomably vile.
While there certainly has been a whole lot of talk about where to draw the line when it comes to political correctness, there are still plenty of folks out there who leave no doubt as to their horrific beliefs.
That is to say, for every accidental racist, for every unwittingly insensitive thing that gets said, there are plenty of belligerent bigots out there, slithering around dressed as decent human beings. Yes, even in the 21st century we are dealing with the ugliest side of mankind, and perhaps even more so on account of the quasi anonymity of the digital realm.
Just this week, one such villain was ousted from his place within the writer’s room at the Tucker Carlson program on Fox News, forcing the network to react with haste and gusto.
Fox News brass condemned the “horrendous and deeply offensive racist, sexist and homophobic comments” secretly made by Tucker Carlson’s lead writer in an internal memo sent to employees Saturday.
CNN reported Friday evening that Fox News writer Blake Neff posted shockingly racist and sexist posts anonymously on an internet message board for years. The posts coincided with his time as the top writer of highly rated prime time show Tucker Carlson Tonight. Neff resigned from his position in response to CNN’s reporting.
“Yesterday we learned that now former employee Blake Neff, a writer on Tucker Carlson Tonight, made horrendous and deeply offensive racist, sexist and homophobic comments under a pseudonym on the forum AutoAdmit,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace wrote in the memo.
Fox’s statement was blunt, and with good reason.
“We want to make abundantly clear that Fox News Media strongly condemns this horrific racist, misogynistic and homophobic behavior,” they wrote. “Neff’s abhorrent conduct on this forum was never divulged to the show or the network until Friday, at which point we swiftly accepted his resignation. Make no mistake, actions such as his cannot and will not be tolerated at any time in any part of our work force.”
Neff’s comments are not fit for print here at LibertyHub.com, and are condemnable by their very verbiage, let alone the sick sentiment behind them.
