How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific as you explain it. Can you think, for example, of other institutions such as, I don’t know, marriage or military units in which the less people have in common, the more cohesive they are?Do you get along better with your neighbors, your co-workers if you can’t understand each other or share no common values? Please be honest as you answer this question.And if diversity is our strength, why is it okay for the rest of us to surrender one of our central rights, freedom of speech, to just a handful of tech monopolies? And by the way, if your ideas are so obviously true, why does anyone who question them need to be shamed, silenced and fired?
1/6 The organized left is lying about a segment we did on Friday night. Our topic was "diversity is our strength," a phrase our leaders use to end conversation rather than spur it. You hear it all the time. We asked, what exactly does it mean? Is it true?— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) September 9, 2018

4/6 These are the questions our leaders out to be asking every day. How does a nation of 325 million people hang together? What do we all have in common as Americans? Why should we remain a country? Nothing is more important than answering this.— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) September 9, 2018
5/6 But our leaders aren't even asking these questions. Instead they're trying to silence anyone who raises them, while at the same time promoting mindless tribalism for political expedience. Division keeps them in power.— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) September 9, 2018
6/6 What's at stake isn't a cable news segment. It's the existence of rational conversation in America. If they can prevent you from asking honest questions, there's nothing they can't do. More on this tomorrow night.— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) September 9, 2018
I had a neighbor from Mexico who spoke very little English. I helped her with language and we we got along fine. I also have Vietnamese friend who I get along with and helped her with her US citizenship test. What else you got? Loser.— Linda Hartmann (@lkhtmn) September 10, 2018
Diversity and Inclusion
The Company appreciates the importance of valuing and serving a diverse marketplace. Different backgrounds and characteristics, such as race, ethnicity, gender, disability, culture and sexual orientation, bring innovative viewpoints and merit to the creation of our content and products.
We work every day to nurture our appetite for change, and guard against our own incumbency while building an organization for the future, with the right structure and leadership and a culture that celebrates the huge swath of diversity that is 21CF.
We also continued efforts to champion new and unique voices in our industry through programs like the Fox Inclusion Writers, Directors, and Filmmakers Labs, because we know that an exchange of diverse perspectives will drive creative innovation and inspire authentic stories that resonate.
In Fiscal 2017, the Company installed a new global Chief Human Resources Officer at 21st Century Fox and a new head of Human Resources at Fox News. Each is authorized to take all necessary steps to ensure our commitment to a diverse, inclusive and welcoming work environment is supported across the entire company.
