Britain's Despair and the Media Matters Campaign to Destroy Tucker Carlson

A total of 34 companies-by Media Matters' count-have cut ties in recent months as a result of numerous comments Carlson has made on his show and elsewhere. Instead, the Fox News host plugged his prime-time show and urged his detractors to come on as guests.
The network's support of Carlson will be put to the test on Wednesday. We have to deal with Fox News.
Carlson is not the only Fox News host who has faced an advertiser backlash.
After his show on Tuesday, Carlson's Fox News colleague Sean Hannity commended him for fending off his many detractors, adding that Carlson had delayed a vacation to defend himself on air (though, later, a Fox News spokesman said Hannity misspoke and that Carlson was always scheduled to host his show this week). It becomes a busy news week, and he's not going to take the mob's crap. That's making the network a more important asset for Fox than ever before.

On his show Monday night, Carlson maintained on his show that he owed nobody an apology. Fox News representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the Miss Teen USA audio. Oddly enough, in 2016, Carlson said that the KKK and Nazi Party don't really even exist anyway.
Threatening to boycott advertisers is nothing new, but it still isn't clear how effective it is.
But Media Matters for America President Angelo Carusone said Carlson's comments have nothing to do with Media Matters and everything to do with his character.
Carlson had 54 advertisers in the same week previous year, but he lost a number of them in December after he claimed that immigrants made America "dirtier". In December, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell said: "I make all of my advertising decisions based on what is best for MyPillow, my customers and my employees".

Funding for the development of the rocket in 2020 will account for $1.7 billion of NASA's budget, down by $375 million from 2019. He did not say which private company he had in mind, but SpaceX would be a natural candidate with its Falcon Heavy rocket.
