'I'm With Tucker': NFL Legend Brett Favre Calls For Fox News Boycott Until They Let Carlson Speak

On Monday, legendary NFL quarterback Brett Farve called out Fox News, saying they must let Tucker Carlson speak following his departure from the network.

Favre, who played twenty seasons in the National Football League tweeted, "I’m with Tucker. Time to boycott Fox until they come to their senses and let the man speak."

Brett Favre attached a video to his tweet from SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly, which stated, "he needs to be silenced while Fox needs to rebuild that disappearing audience... that is what is happening here: keep him silenced on the sidelines as long as possible, unable to use his voice on any of these things. On Fox, on politics, on anything."

The rest of the video was an assortment of clips from Tucker Carlson from his Fox News program 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'
    Brett Favre had been a guest on Tucker Carlson's Fox Nation program 'Tucker Carlson Today.' He also is an opponent of the politicization of sports.

He told the Daily Wire via USA Today in 2021, "I know when I turn on a game, I want to watch a game. I want to watch players play and teams win, lose, come from behind. I want to watch all the important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside of the game, and I think the general fan feels the same way. . . . I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, ‘I don’t watch anymore; it’s not about the game anymore.’ And I tend to agree.”

Favre is absolutely on target about the polarization of professional sports, and he is on target about Tucker Carlson. Tucker must be able to speak his mind freely. No matter the details of the Fox News contract settlement, Americans deserve to rest easy knowing a patriot like Tucker Carlson can weigh in on the situation, no matter the topic. Our nation depends on the sort of honest conversations generated by shows like 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'
