Tucker Carlson returned last night from his “sudden” vacation, but his advertisers did not return with him. The Fox News host has lost 60% of his advertisers this year, leaving only a handful of small time companies willing to put their names anywhere near his program. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what this means for Tucker’s future at the network.
