U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) has been a frequent guest on Fox News since he took office in 2021 and a watcher for even longer, but with the recent firing of Tucker Carlson, he's now telling everyone to change the channel.

“[F]or 15 years, I woke up to Fox News and go to bed with Fox News," Tuberville told Newsmax host John Bachman. "Now I’m waking up to Newsmax and going to bed with Newsmax."

Tuberville accused the Murdoch family, which owns Fox Corporation, of trying to take the network in a more “liberal” direction by silencing conservative voices at the behest of Democrat lawmakers like U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

"I'm sick of it. Let them talk and speak how they want to speak. Get out of the dang way. This is a free country," Tuberville said. "But Glenn Beck, everybody that they've fired over there, this is a liberal family that's trying to make a name for themselves.

"And they have just cost themselves a lot of money, folks. If you're on Fox, turn it off," he added. "Go to Newsmax, go to one of the conservative stations. Get away from this mess because it's absolutely a crime. And what this Murdoch family's doing."
