The war has started.
Tucker Carlson is looking for separation from Fox News and he just fired a monster shot to get it.
Carlson has charged Fox News with fraud in an effort to get his release.
There have been some rather startling revelations in this case in just the last few hours.
At the top of that list is Tucker accusing Fox of breaching its contract with Carlson for exposing private communications.
A letter sent to Fox by Carlson’s attorneys stated that Fox News employees, including “Rupert Murdoch himself,” broke promises to Carlson “intentionally and with reckless disregard for the truth.”
It furthermore stated that his agreement with Fox forbids them “to take any adverse employment action against him.”
Reports this week regarding Tucker’s communications have put them at the center of his being sidelined by the network.
The letter goes on to say, “These actions not only breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing in the Agreement, but give rise to claims for breach of contract, and intentional and negligent misrepresentation.”
Fox News is denying that the settlement reached with Dominion had anything at all to do with him being taken off the air.
