Chris Cuomo Defends Blacklisting of Tucker Carlson

CNN host Chris Cuomo said on his show Tuesday that advertisers “have the right” to pull ads from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show over Carlson’s comments about immigration.

“The Fox fear train ran into a familiar roadblock,” Cuomo said. “The same rancor that fuels their demonizing of migrants and drives their numbers also tends to turn off advertisers that turn ratings into revenue. More than a dozen companies have pulled their ads after this comment from Tucker Carlson about migrants.”

“I don’t consider him a colleague,” Cuomo added. “It doesn’t mean he doesn’t have the right to say it, but so do advertisers have the right to respond to what he says.”
