Controversial United States primetime host Tucker Carlson is under fire for pushing a Pro-Putin agenda

Tucker Carlson has long taken on the self-proclaimed title of “Tucker The Untouchable.”

The popular presenter remains the biggest drawcard at Fox News. However, there are suggestions he is backing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Despite the ongoing concerns about disinformation on Carlson’s platform, no action has  been taken by Fox News executives to rein him in.

Even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has praised Fox News and its coverage of the war in Ukraine.

Lavrov says Fox news is the only network in the United States “trying to present some alternative points of view”.

In a series of shows just days ago, Carlson devoted segments to promoting Moscow’s propaganda claims that there are American biological warfare labs in Ukraine.

US officials say the labs are Ukrainian and part of a sequences called the Biological Threat Reduction Program that has received some U.S. support.

The White House warns this false information could be used by Putin to stage a chemical or biological attack.

Meanwhile, even Russian Television hosts are praising “Tucker the Untouchable”.

The co-host of the Russia’s 60 minutes programme says “our acquaintance, Tucker Carlson, obviously has his own interests⁠—but lately, they’re more and more in tune with our own.”

Carlson’s continuous quesitoning of the of the war in Ukraine and his slant toward Russia is having widespread concerns. These are accusations Carlson has firmly denied.

It comes just days after his own colleagues were killed in the war, as a result of Russian agression.

Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and journalist Oleksandra Kuvshynova, died when their vehicle was hit near Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv. Another Fox News reporter, Benjamin Hall, was also injured in the attack.

William is an Executive News Producer at TICKER NEWS, responsible for the production and direction of news bulletins. William is also the presenter of the hourly Weather + Climate segment. With qualifications in Journalism and Law (LLB), William previously worked at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) before moving to TICKER NEWS.

Published

on

Adidas is contemplating a significant financial blow as it considers writing off $320 million worth of Yeezy shoes following its separation from music and fashion icon Kanye West.

The sportswear giant’s decision to sever ties with West’s Yeezy brand has left a mountain of unsold merchandise, threatening to dent the company’s balance sheet.

The partnership between Adidas and Kanye West, which began in 2013, had been immensely successful, with Yeezy shoes becoming a highly sought-after fashion statement.

However, recent controversies and disagreements between West and Adidas prompted the sportswear company to distance itself from the celebrity designer.

The massive inventory of Yeezy shoes now presents a dilemma for Adidas, as it grapples with finding a solution to deal with the surplus stock. A $320 million write-off could significantly impact the company’s financial performance in the short term.

Adidas is currently exploring various options, including discounting, donating, or repurposing the unsold inventory to mitigate the financial hit.
