Fox News Doubles-Down On Supporting Tucker Carlson

Language-learning platform Babbel apologized Tuesday for its ad being aired during Fox News's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," which the company called "repugnant."

"If you saw our ad on Tucker Carlson’s show, you’re right to be upset. We are too," Babbel USA tweeted.

According to The Hill, a Fox News spokesperson fired back at the company in a statement, saying the network would "not allow voices like Tucker Carlson's to be censored."

“The millions of unduplicated viewers watching Tucker Carlson Tonight are extremely valuable to our advertisers. Our audience is not only deeply loyal to the brand, but to our top tier partners as well, of which Babbel is not one," the Fox News spokesperson said.

"We will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson’s to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts from the intolerant partisan activists Media Matters, Sleeping Giants and whose only goal is to silence conservative thought they don’t agree with," the spokesperson asserted.

Several companies have pulled their ads from the show in the last year.
