The media was very concerned about a white man taking over a prime time spot on Fox News after reports came out of Tucker Carlson’s new time slot.
Carlson’s show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” got bumped up to the 9 p.m. EST slot after Megyn Kelly announced that she would be moving to NBC News. (RELATED: Tucker Carlson To Replace Megyn Kelly In 9 P.M. Fox News Slot)
Journalists and media personalities, many of them white males themselves, quickly jumped on Twitter to quip about a white man getting the prime slot on Fox.

“The shift leaves Fox with an all-white-male prime time lineup for the first time in its twenty-year history,” Brian Stelter at CNN wrote.
When not complaining about Carlson’s whiteness, the media accused him of being a sexist and having the adoration of neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
