Report: Pete Hegseth’s Wife is Behind Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Ouster

Pete Hegseth is reportedly among the Fox News personalities in the running to replace Tucker Carlson as the host of his 8 PM program.

Reports have emerged that say that the wife of Fox News personality Pete Hegseth is behind Tucker Carlson’s ouster from the corporate media network; this as Hegseth is being named as Carlson’s potential replacement.

“Reports from credible sources tell us Pete Hegseth’s wife was Tucker’s hatchet lady,” Stew Peters wrote in a tweet, attaching a screenshot of a brief bulletin that named Hegseth’s wife, Fox producer Jennifer Rauchet, as the person who’s behind the sudden ousting of Tucker Carlson.

The bulletin goes on to explain that Carlson was “planning a segment to destroy” the Sunday evening interview that CBS aired with Ray Epps, a suspected federal J6 informant and provocateur who has not only escaped the legal repercussion doled out to peaceful demonstrators, but has been vehemently defended by corporate media and government officials alike.

“Exec Producer Jennifer Rauchet told [Tucker Carlson] he couldn’t run the segment so he quit,” the bulletin claims.

“Jennifer is a nobody who is Pete Hegseth’s wife,” the bulletin goes on. “She obviously was sent to give a message. It makes sense she has had to carry them from [the] network before. So the story at least makes sense.”

The report that Pete Hegseth’s wife was behind Carlson’s ouster from Fox News comes as Hegseth is being reported as a potential replacement for Calrson in the coveted 8:00 PM weeknight time slot.

“The network will be trying out guest hosts for at least the next several weeks,” MSNBC reported of the search for a Carlson replacement, later adding that “in-house commentators like Pete Hegseth”…”will try to win the gig.”

Though few additional details have become available regarding Carlson’s ouster from Fox News, Carlson did release a public statement on Wednesday night, blasting corporate media coverage for being “unbelievably stupid,” and saying that “undeniably big topics” deliberately receive “no discussion at all.”

“…you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are,” said Carlson. “They’re completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years we won’t even remember that we had them – trust me, as someone who’s participated in them.”

“And yet at the same time, and this is the amazing thing, the undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all – war, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources,” Carlson went on. “When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues?” he asked.

“It’s been a long time. Debates like that are not permitted in American media.”
