Fox News host Tucker Carlson joined The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show Monday for a discussion that centered on whether to mask children who are going back to school.

Carlson has been an outspoken opponent on the masking debate, specifically when it comes to children.

“Look, if children were dying of covid in large numbers or there was some real evidence that masks protected them, then we could have a remarkable conversation,” said Carlson. “But neither one of those things is true. We do know that kids need to see the human face in order to develop.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending indoor masking for all individuals age 2 years and older, including students, teachers, staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

“I don’t know if that’s an individual decision,” Carlson said. “Should you allow lunatics for political reasons to hurt your children? That’s not a tough call. No. How about this? “No!” So I don’t know what form that takes, but I hope that nationwide people of all backgrounds, all political persuasions decide we’re not gonna do this again because it’s hurting our kids, period.”

NewsNation wants to compete with CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC in the cable news and it seems as though they are not afraid to strike when one of their competitors deals with several layoffs.

Under new boss Chris Licht, CNN has seen several people exit the network, from executives to those who work in different departments, such as the audio content. 

Nonetheless, it allowed for NewsNation to take a dig at their news rival as the Nexstar Media Group’s cable news network has mounted a billboard near CNN’s Atlanta facility that announces “we’re hiring” (h/t Next TV).

The 15-foot by 70-foot billboard has pictures of NewsNation primetime host Chris Cuomo (who left CNN last year), Ashleigh Banfield (who anchored for CNN and HLN), and Dan Abrams. 

NewsNation, which is based in Chicago, is currently constructing studios in New York and Washington, D.C. The cable news channel plans to hire at least 100 additional staff members in the coming year and air news programming 24 hours a day by 2024.

After a bout with Covid-19, “The View’s” Whoopi Goldberg returned to her co-hosting duties on the show. However, she stated that this go-around with the virus was challenging.

In her return to the midday show, Goldberg preached that although there are Covid shots and boosters, it’s still a virus many should take seriously.

“You can get boosted within an inch of your life and then the next thing you know you got Covid again,” Goldberg said. “But I don’t have it now and that’s why I’m back at the table.”

Goldberg wore a shirt that read “Over It” as she went into detail about how it really knocked “The View” co-host off her feet this time.

“I will tell you, we’re used to people saying, ‘Oh [Covid] isn’t that bad [now]’, but this was a rough one,” Goldberg said. “The true thing is, if you really want to protect yourself you probably need to keep the mask on a little more than you want to.”

The changes continue at CNN as Michael Bass, the cable news channel’s longtime programming chief, exits the company at the end of this year, per TheWarp

“Michael has demonstrated incredible leadership and perseverance” in his nearly decade-long tenure at the network, CNN boss Chris Licht said when announcing the news of Bass’ departure. 

When former CNN president Jeff Zucker exited CNN after revealing a consensual relationship with a fellow executive, Bass was part of a group of executives tapped to help lead the network on an interim basis. 

Additionally, Bass was named to Licht’s team, which includes CNN Worldwide’s executive vice president for talent and content development Amy Entelis and CNN U.S.’ executive vice president Ken Jautz.

“He has been a steady hand during some of the most turbulent times this network has faced,” Licht wrote in a memo to staff. 

“Along with a brilliant and courageous team, Michael kept CNN live and on air as COVID-19 shut the world down … And as a part of the “Trio,” Michael, Amy, and Ken guided CNN through a difficult transition period while simultaneously overseeing our exceptional coverage of the war in Ukraine.”
