Tucker Carlson to Take ‘Long-Planned’ Vacation After Blake Neff’s Resignation

The Fox News star Tucker Carlson said on Monday evening that he would leave on a vacation, starting immediately, days after a writer on his program, Blake Neff, resigned over racist, sexist and misogynist messages that Mr. Neff published pseudonymously on an online message board.
