The ongoing contract dispute between Tucker Carlson and Fox News has taken a dramatic turn, as it is now being reported that Carlson is in possession of a “treasure trove” of secrets about the network and is willing to release them if the contract standoff does not end soon.
Following Carlson’s unexpected departure from the Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative news network almost a month ago, the former host has been pressuring Fox News to release him from a noncompete clause in his still-active contract. However, negotiations between the two parties have reportedly deteriorated into “meaningless conversations,” according to industry insiders familiar with the situation.
The talks hit a roadblock after unfavorable stories about Fox News were leaked online this week, leading some sources to suspect that Carlson and his team were behind the leaks. Now, it has been revealed that Carlson and his team are preparing to escalate their pressure campaign against Fox News using the “treasure trove” of secrets at their disposal. These secrets are said to include allegations of extramarital affairs and workplace misconduct that have not been previously reported to the public.
One network source familiar with the ongoing cold war between Carlson and Fox News stated, “The hope is that Fox comes to their senses and realizes they can’t stop Tucker from speaking and doing his thing, and if not, that’s unfortunate and there would be some pain inflicted.”
Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott, on the other hand, has expressed confidence that the conflict will be resolved “amicably” despite Carlson’s mounting pressure campaign. Scott reportedly assured another source familiar with the matter that the “unsubtle warfare” between Carlson and the network will come to a peaceful conclusion.
Tucker Carlson’s sudden departure from Fox News on April 24 after his long tenure with the conservative news network remains shrouded in mystery. While the exact reasons for his departure are still unclear, some sources, including conservative journalist Chadwick Moore, have suggested that Carlson’s firing was a “secret condition” of Fox’s $787.5 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems.
Both Fox News and Dominion have firmly denied any connection between Carlson’s departure and the substantial settlement reached with the voting technology company. The nature of the secrets Carlson claims to possess about Fox News and how they might impact the ongoing contract dispute remains to be seen.
As the contract standoff continues, it remains to be seen whether the release of these alleged secrets will come to fruition and what impact they might have on Fox News and its reputation.
I doubt any of that would affect the average Fox viewer which probably voted for Trump and therefore are probably lacking any decency or belief in integrity, marital loyalty or honesty.
In my case, that the Fox people, that constantly push lies, have been sued for sexual misconduct, charged with perjury and promote strife and racist views to disrupt our country, for the sake of RATINGS are also adulterous, do not surprise me one bit. If I would believe in hell, I would have no doubt that having been a Fox employee guarantee you a place there.
