Tucker Carlson's chief writer Blake Neff had resigned over his racist, sexist posts.

After an inquiry from a reporter, it took less than a day for Fox News to receive the resignation of Tucker Carlson’s chief writer, who was exposed for the racist and sexist messages he had been covertly sharing on an online forum.

Among his posts, Blake Neff had smeared Black people as lazy and criminal, stated that he would not get medical care from an Asian doctor, used homophobic slurs and repeatedly mocked a female college acquaintance by reposting her Facebook messages and photos for several years.

Top newsroom officials called Neff’s posts “horrendous” and “deeply offensive” in a memo to staff Saturday, a day after they were exposed in a CNN story. “FOX News Media strongly condemns this horrific racist, misogynistic and homophobic behavior,” said the memo from Suzanne Scott and Jay Wallace, the chief executive and president of Fox News, respectively. “Make no mistake, actions such as his cannot and will not be tolerated at any time in any part of our work force.”

But the years Neff spent spewing toxic sentiments online while at the same time penning Carlson’s provocative TV commentary raises questions about the culture of cable news’s most-watched show and the philosophical underpinnings of one of the conservative movement’s most prominent voices.
