Former Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera, while appearing on ABC’s “The View,” expressed that he could never forgive former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson for promoting “conspiracy theories” related to the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
Co-host Sara Haines asked him: “I know we were speaking about the recent firings at Fox. What are your thoughts on Tucker Carlson’s new Twitter show, and do you think the fact that his viewership is plummeting that it shows his influence is waning?”
Rivera replied: “Well, I hope so.”
“I think that he is an excellent writer. I think that he was very charismatic in his presentation. He was number one for a reason. It was a pretty good show,” he continued.
“Then he drifted into this murky area, where a swampy area where, you know, these conspiracy theories, and it’s not just January 6, it was a whole bunch of different mucky kind of conspiracies,” Rivera said.
“Fox is a tremendous platform. And once you lose that platform, you’re kind of screaming in the wilderness and competing with a lot of other people who have podcasts and so forth. So will he be the same character? I don’t know,” he added.
