Samsung, SodaStream, Pfizer’s Robitussin, Jaguar-Land Rover, TD Ameritrade, and SanDisk are among at least 20 brands that have either fully stopped or temporarily suspended advertising on Fox News’ 8 p.m. program, Tucker Carlson Tonight, after the host said last Thursday on his show that immigration makes the United States “poorer, dirtier and more divided.”
