According to a Nasdaq report, BlackRock increased its position in Fox Corporation (FOXA) earlier this year.
“Fintel reports that BlackRock has filed a 13G/A form with the SEC disclosing ownership of 45.74MM shares of Fox Corporation, Class A (FOXA). This represents 15.1% of the company,” Nasdaq writes.
“In their previous filing dated January 27, 2022 they reported 39.87MM shares and 12.40% of the company, an increase in shares of 14.75% and an increase in total ownership of 2.70% (calculated as current – previous percent ownership),” the report adds.
With BlackRock’s increased ownership in Fox News, did Tucker Carlson get the boot to silence his message to its viewing audience?
After learning about BlackRock’s moves behind the scenes, social media users speculate Carlson’s ousting from the network isn’t a coincidence.

Now do you see why Fox parted ways with Tucker only 2 months later?
