Podcaster and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon reacted to Fox News’ coverage of the war in Ukraine.

On Bannon’s “War Room Podcast” Thursday, Bannon praised Jesse Watters and Tucker Carlson for their work over the last three weeks.

“Jesse has done an incredible job and is obviously following the great Tucker Carlson, so Fox now has two — Fox, which is the home of stupid TV or TV for stupid people — and if you watch it, hey, sorry. It’s just all day long,” Bannon said.

Bannon said Fox News has found a dynamic one-two punch in Watters and Carlson.

“They’ve got a power block now on Fox: Watters and Tucker back-to-back,” he said. “It’s going to be very important. That’s a pivot point. That’s an intellectual center, right there, of gravity,” Bannon concluded of the Carlson-Watters duo during Fox News’ prime time.

Bannon also has praised Carlson over his questioning of why the U.S. should be pro-Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression.

A shooter in Uvalde, Texas, walked into a school and opened fire, killing 21 people, including 19 children and two adults, on Tuesday. CNN host Wolf Blitzer reacted to the tragedy in “The Situation Room.”

According to a transcript published on Breitbart, Blitzer criticized the availability of what he termed “weapons of mass destruction.”

“Every time there is an incident like this, you hear about efforts to deal with mentally unstable people who can certainly go out there and buy a weapon of mass destruction, go out there and buy a gun or rifle or some sort of assault-type weapon and go to there and eventually start killing wonderful, wonderful, people.”

According to the Associated Press, Tuesday’s attack on Robb Elementary School was the deadliest shooting at a U.S. school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut.

The head of Fox News is speaking out about the narrative that his network is too divisive. CEO Lachlan Murdoch told Axios that the network gets a lot of heat because of its perpetual top-ranked status. 

“I think when you’re in the news business, and you’re number one … you get a lot of heat and it just comes with the territory,” said Murdoch. 

Left-leaning pundits have been strongly opposed to Tucker Carlson’s comments about illegal immigration. The New York Times  published a report explaining how Carlson had “stoked white fear to conquer cable news.” 

New York Senator Chuck Schumer recently sent a letter to Fox News demanding the network fire Carlson for sharing what some are calling “great replacement theory.” That letter was sent days after a white shooter walked into a Buffalo grocery store and murdered 10 people. 

“You’ve got to kind of realize what it is and how some of it is a very organized kind of attack — very coordinated — but it is what it is,” Murdoch said. 

Following the Buffalo shooting incident, protestors descended upon Fox News headquarters in New York City to protest the network’s primetime hosts.
