Tucker Carlson was fired from Fox News in April.

The program began with the topic of Brian Stelter's upcoming book, Network of Lies, which examines the state of Fox News at the time of their massive $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems, who sued the network over conspiracy theories that targeted their voting machines.

Days after Fox News attorneys settled the defamation case moments before its trial kicked off, Carlson, who peddled the baseless stolen election claims on his primetime slot, was axed from the network.

Goldberg and Behar both cracked jokes about Carlson's struggling self-produced show.

"The book claims that it wasn't just the racism, misogyny and election fraud lies that he spewed on the air," Goldberg said in a mocking tone. "Apparently he took that misogyny behind the scenes as well, where he directed it towards female employees and executives. He also apparently thought he was untouchable."

"So... what was the tipping point for them?" Goldberg sarcastically asked, to which co-host Sunny Hostin raised her hand, saying that Carlson was fired because he was a liability and "he cost them too much."

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg mentioned how the Grammy-winning band ticked off conservatives with the lyric swap on their hit track "American Idiot."

Hostin also claimed that the veteran anchor was given the boot because it was "part of the deal" Fox News made with Dominion Voting Systems. While Fox and Dominion denied that this was the case, Carlson has also suggested that his ousting was linked to the settlement.

As their conversation moved on to highlight that "everyone is expendable" and "replaceable," Behar took the opportunity to dish a low blow Carlson's way.

The women called this a "teaching moment."

As the talk show hosts dissected Carlson's fall from the top dog at Fox to a self-producing program on X from his garage studio at home, Alyssa Farrah Griffin argued, "the power and the hubris of being the most watched man on cable news" while she compared Carlson to Bill O'Reilly.

"There’s always this question of ‘They don’t need Fox News, they’ll be just as powerful.’ No, no, no. You need the institution," Griffin added.

Behar chimed in with comic relief. "They end up in somebody’s basement with a podcast," she said, drawing a roar of laughter from the panel.
