When Fox News on Monday announced that it and Tucker Carlson had parted ways, speculation ran wild about why the split happened and what he would do next.
There was discussion that Carlson might be a presidential candidate, and that his departure was prompted by his coverage of controversial issues, such as Ray Epps and his involvement – or not – in the Jan. 6, 2021, events at the U.S. Capitol.
All through the day, Carlson was silent.
But then, for a short time, he posted on his website an ad offering those who sign up on his site to be given details about "what Tucker's up to next."
The full ad, promoting his "insider" signup program, said, "SIGNUP HERE TO BECOME A TUCKERCARLSON.COM INSIDER TO FIND OUT WHAT TUCKER'S UP TO NEXT."
The ad, after a short time, was taken down, while the site still promoted the signup option for readers.
The Washington Examiner described the ad as "cryptic" and "hinting about his next moves."
The announcement from Fox said it was parting with Carlson, the network's most popular show host and a routine competitor-killer in his 8 p.m. time slot.

The report said the ad originally popped up immediately for everyone who went to the site.
"Carlson's website's homepage still features his specials from his time at Fox, and three recent documentaries are featured prominently," the report explained.
Carlson started his show in 2016 and his departure not only triggered a massive collapse in the financial value of Fox, but also left a gap in the network's lineup.
Former congressional candidate Laura Loomer concluded Carlson's departure actually is a good thing.
"Fox News was controlled opposition. They had a blacklist and even censored Tucker. Now he's free to do what he wants and hopefully Fox goes bankrupt. Especially now that it's essentially the DeSantis News Network. Good riddance."
And GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., said, "Wherever Tucker Carlson goes, America will follow!"
The ad originally said, "TEXT TUCKER TO 44055 OR SIGN UP HERE TO BECOME A TUCKERCARLSON.COM INSIDER TO FIND OUT WHAT TUCKER'S UP TO NEXT."
There remains on the website an option for signing up as an "insider."
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although millions of American parents send their precious children off to public school every day, imagining their kids’ days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they’re not only in for a shock – but for total BETRAYAL. Today’s “public” (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children.
Kids are being taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child’s transgender “transition.” In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to “catastrophic climate change.” Another lie. But it’s all classic Marxism/communism, with even the “3 R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic – now being corrupted with “woke,” “1984”-style madness.
Perhaps never has the true threat of today’s U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational April issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America’s public school system.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
