Fox Host Tucker Carlson Says College Education 'Diminishes You' and 'Everyone Should Opt Out'

Popular and controversial Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized American colleges and the mainstream media, saying "everyone should opt out" of higher education and that he "really" hates journalists today.

Carlson's remarks came in an wide-ranging interview with OutKick, a largely sports-focused media company, published on Friday. The Fox News host is one of the network's most highly rated personalities, regularly drawing in millions of viewers.

In the interview, Carlson railed against the higher education system in the country, explaining that he urged all four of his children not to attend college—but they did anyway.

"There is this idea that college improves your worth. Where is the evidence of that? I'm sure that hard sciences do. If you're an engineer or you are in medical school, you would learn discrete information, actual facts that you can use and that you need to know in order to join the profession that you want to join. But for kids like me who go in for liberal arts education, I believe it diminishes you," Carlson told the site.

The Fox News host explained that he "pushed" his children not to attend college, but said they all disregarded his advice. "I told them, 'I'll take the money we're gonna spend in college—we were blessed to have, we saved money for them—and figure out something more interesting to do with this.' But, to my shame, all of them went."
