LOL: Don LeMon Hires as His Crisis Communications Flack Allison Gollust, the Woman Who Was Having the Affair With Jeff Zucker and Got the Ancien Regime Made Ancient

Radar Online:

Don Lemon made a bold move in the crucial moment after learning his fate at CNN. The television veteran, 57, hired Allison Gollust to handle his crisis communications after being told he had been fired from the network after 17 years. If Allison's name sounds familiar, that's because she got ousted by CNN after blew the lid off her secret affair with the cable network's then-boss, Jeff Zucker.

Re: The "conservative news alternative" Fox News, lol:

This just in: According to leaked court documents from the Fox News-Dominion lawsuit, Paul Ryan was a driving force behind the network's drive to play down 2020 election fraud allegations and to 'move on from Trump'

Is that true? I dunno.

According to Megyn Kelly, Tucker Carlson isn't officially fired yet. They're working out the settlement.

What I hear Fox is that Fox is refusing to pay him a settlement for firing him, becaue they claim he quit. They are willing to pay him, though. They are attempting to tell him that he has to continue taking his salary -- but remain off the air for the final two years of his contract. They are claiming that they still have him under contract and that he can't go out and do his own show as long as they keep paying him. They want to pay him not to compete with them.

According to a Fox insider -- not my source, but relayed through one person and then another -- Tucker Carlson wanted to rebut the 60 Minutes Ray Epps "story," which directly called Tucker Carlson a conspiracy theorist and inciter of violence. A Fox executive producer told him he was not allowed to do that.

That's what caused Carlson to quit. Now, an interesting wrinkle, per this source, is that Tucker's contract specifically forbade Fox News from interfering with his show, which they obviously violated, putting them in breach of contract by doing what his contract says they can't do.

Supposedly, this non-interference clause would make them possibly liable to both lose Tucker Carlson and get a most of his remaining salary. But again, Fox is arguing that he just has to sit on the sidelines to get his money, paid to Not Be On TV.

I wish I could get that deal! I'd be great at Not Being On TV! I have a virtually spotless record of Not Being On TV! Even when I was on TV, they bumped me to show a tank stuck in the mud!

Obviously my part of that reporting is very sketchy, relying on a friend of a friend of a friend stuff. Only take my claims as fodder for conversation.

Incidentally, I don't know if it's anywhere near true that a single breach means you get the full contract payment. But I don't know. Carlson may have invoked that clause and this Fox executive, we know, still forbade him doing his show as he wanted, telling him, effectively, that she was voiding his contract on her authority.

Maybe that would entitle someone to a payout of the terms of the contract.
