BREAKING: FOX News Sends Cease And Desist Order To Tucker Before Release Of Trump Indictment Show

Share this:

Fox News isn’t happy about Tucker’s new Twitter show and has sent him a cease and desist letter.

This comes as Tucker is planning to release a show tomorrow on the Trump indictment.

Via Axios:

Fox News has sent a “cease and desist” letter to Tucker Carlson as he ramps up a competing series on Twitter that drew a combined 169 million views for its first two episodes, Axios has learned.

The contract battle between Fox and its former top host — who was taken off the air in April, after the network’s historic Dominion settlement — has mighty repercussions for the conservative media ecosystem.

With “Tucker on Twitter,” Carlson and his growing production team are working to elevate Elon Musk’s social media site as a news platform.

The cease-and-desist letter has “NOT FOR PUBLICATION” in bold at the top.

Fox is continuing to pay Carlson, and maintains that his contract keeps his content exclusive to Fox through Dec. 31, 2024.

Carlson is making a First Amendment argument for posting on Twitter, and asserts that Fox has committed material breaches of his contract.

Carlson’s first two Twitter episodes were straight-to-camera monologues. He plans to keep iterating with longer, more varied episodes and the addition of guests, Axios is told.

We hear some big names have been lined up.

Justin Wells, Carlson’s executive producer, tweeted yesterday: “Next Episode of Tucker on Twitter coming Tuesday: Tucker’s response to the indictment of President Donald Trump.”

Harmeet Dhillon is Tucker’s attorney and she said he won’t be silenced by Fox News:

Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer who represents Carlson along with Bryan Freedman, said in a statement to Axios: “Fox News continues to ignore the interests of its viewers, not to mention its shareholder obligations.”

“Doubling down on the most catastrophic programming decision in the history of the cable news industry, Fox is now demanding that Tucker Carlson be silent until after the 2024 election,” the statement continued.

“Tucker will not be silenced by anyone … He is a singularly important voice on matters of public interest in our country, and will remain so.”

It sounds like to me that this will quickly turn into a lawsuit if Fox News is really serious about silencing Tucker. He clearly has a show but he doesn’t appear to be doing it on behalf of anyone other than himself. So we’ll see how successful they are.

As far as his show on the Trump indictment, we’ll bring you that tomorrow when it comes out.

Tucker should keep giving the finger to Fox. His removal from his show was the finger given to him. Turn about is fair play. I’ve cancelled Fox as they don’t offer any programming I consider worth watching, Hannity and Ingram have been muzzled since after the 2020 election’s and that only left Tucker, but him gone so am I.
