An individual identified as Alexander McCaskill, previously the managing editor of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News, has stepped down from the network after a contentious incident involving a headline banner targeting Joe Biden during Donald Trump’s response to his criminal indictment, Your Content has learned.

The provocative chyron, which read “wannabe dictator speaks at the White House after having his political rival arrested,” sparked widespread criticism.

Fox News issued a statement on Wednesday acknowledging the error, stating that the chyron was swiftly removed and addressed.

However, the incident garnered condemnation from various sources.

Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, expressed disapproval of Fox airing the chyron, while former Fox host Tucker Carlson, on his Twitter show, claimed that the banner had caused panic among “the women who run the network.”

Carlson alleged that the producer responsible for the chyron had resigned less than 24 hours after being scolded and had been with Fox for over a decade, describing him as a highly capable individual who offered to follow the customary two-week notice period but was instructed to leave immediately.

McCaskill, at the center of the chyron controversy, also features in a lawsuit filed by former Fox talent booker Abby Grossberg.

The lawsuit accuses Fox News, Fox Corp, and employees, including Tucker Carlson, of fostering a workplace marred by abusive behaviors.

Grossberg alleges religious discrimination by McCaskill, citing the placement of inflatable Christmas decorations and a sign reading “Hannukah bush” near her desk.

Additionally, Grossberg claims that McCaskill habitually belittled female employees and made inappropriate comments, such as suggesting a room of tanning beds for men to tan their testicles instead of a breastfeeding mother’s room.

Fox News has denied the allegations in Grossberg’s lawsuit, which they claim is filled with false accusations.

However, following their settlement in the Dominion Voting Systems defamation case and Carlson’s departure from the network, it was reported that Fox News was nearing a settlement with Grossberg, according The Guardian.
