Media Matters: Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch endorses Tucker Carlson's white replacement theory

Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch is defending Tucker Carlson’s April 8 segment promoting the white supremacist “replacement” conspiracy theory after the Anti-Defamation League’s chief executive, Jonathan Greenblatt, called for Carlson to be fired

Over the weekend, Greenblatt appeared on CNN to explain how the Murdochs, Fox's board, and its advertisers enable Carlson to push white nationalist conspiracy theories on Fox News’ prime time.

According to CNN, Murdoch “dismissed the Anti-Defamation League's demand that the company fire host Tucker Carlson, telling the organization in a letter that his company saw no problem with comments Carlson made about the racist ‘great replacement’ theory.”

"Fox Corporation shares your values and abhors anti-semitism, white supremacy and racism of any kind," Murdoch wrote ADL chief executive Jonathan Greenblatt on Sunday. "In fact, I remember fondly the ADL honoring my father with your International Leadership Award, and we continue to support your mission.

"Concerning the segment of 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' on April 8th, however, we respectfully disagree," Murdoch continued in the letter, which the ADL provided CNN. "A full review of the guest interview indicates that Mr. Carlson decried and rejected replacement theory. As Mr. Carlson himself stated during the guest interview: 'White replacement theory? No, no, this is a voting rights question.'"

Murdoch is joined in defending Carlson by the Fox host’s fan base -- a chorus of enthusiastic young white supremacists online.

Media Matters: Tucker Carlson’s latest endorsement of “replacement theory” proves that Lachlan Murdoch is complicit

In a letter to the Anti-Defamation League on April 11, Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch claimed that Tucker Carlson never actually endorsed the so-called “great replacement theory” on Fox’s air on April 8. This claim was transparently specious if you looked at the transcript of Carlson’s remarks.

Carlson has now proved that Murdoch is complicit.

The Fox host once again explicitly reiterated his belief in the “great replacement” immigration conspiracy theory on April 21, this time connecting it to a call for action by conservatives.

During the April 21 episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson once again argued that “Democrats are using mass immigration to transform the country, to change who votes, so they can control who wins.”

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Well, Ted Lieu is a member of Congress, he's a Democrat. He represents the state of California. He's incredibly smart, went to Stanford and Georgetown.


With that in mind, we wanted to bring you one of his recent pronouncements. This is a tweet and it's in response to one of his colleagues, the Congressman Scott Perry.

Now, Perry was making an argument we have often made, because it's true -- and that is that Democrats are using mass immigration to transform the country, to change who votes, so they can control who wins.

Ted Lieu was very annoyed that Scott Perry said this. And so, he sent the following tweet, and he was clearly enraged as he did, quote, “Dear Scott Perry, native-born Americans like you are no more American, and no less American, than an immigrant like me." Good point, we agree with that.

And then, he said this: “And with every passing year, there will be more people who look like me in the United States. You can't stop it. So take your racist replacement theory and shove it."

In other words, you're being replaced, and there's nothing you can do about it. So, shut up.

Carlson then tried to tie his fearmongering of rapid immigrant-induced change into a call to action for conservatives, airing a clip from his new Fox Nation show Tucker Carlson Today featuring the Claremont Institute’s Glenn Ellmers.

In the video, Ellmers discussed a recent essay he wrote, arguing that conservatives need to “think as revolutionaries or maybe, if you look at it in a different way, counterrevolutionaries, to bring back the stuff that’s lost.” He also said that the Declaration of Independence says “if the people decide that the government is no longer protecting their rights, they have both a right and a duty … to alter or abolish that government and replace it with something they think will serve what the declaration calls their safety and happiness.”

Of course Ellmers’ call to revolutionary action would appeal to Carlson, who has built himself into Fox’s poster child on a diet of excusing and egging on vigilantes so long as it suits his own worldview. He’s wondered aloud why anyone would stand for a migrant invasion he views as a great replacement, attempted to rewrite the history of the January 6 attack on the Capitol building, and defended Kyle Rittenhouse for shooting counterprotesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The Anti-Defamation League called for advertisers to boycott Carlson following his endorsement of the great replacement conspiracy theory. Media Matters has launched the #UnFoxMyCableBox effort to empower people to ask their cable news providers to stop forcing them to subsidize Fox News’ bigotry and lies.
