Tucker Carlson: If You Tell Too Many Truths, You Get Fired.
So I'm Bringing My Old Show to a Platform That Allows Free Speech, Twitter.
Jack Posobiec: Tucker's Firing Was a Condition of the Dominon Settlement?!?!

Looks like Tucker Carlson and Elon Musk have worked out some kind of exclusive deal for Tucker Carlson's show. Video below the fold.

But meanwhile: Carlson accuses Fox of breach of contract and fraud.

Tucker Carlson, two weeks after being ousted by Fox News, accused the network Tuesday of fraud and breach of contract -- and made a host of document demands that could precede legal action.

Why it matters: The aggressive letter from his lawyers to Fox positions Carlson to argue that the noncompete provision in his contract is no longer valid -- freeing him to launch his own competing show or media enterprise.

On Tuesday, Carlson announced he would be bringing his show to Twitter,.
"Starting soon we'll be bringing a new version of the show we've been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter," he said in the video. "We bring some other things too, which we'll tell you about. But for now we're just grateful to be here. Free speech is the main right that you have. Without it, you have no others."

The intrigue: The Twitter move would seem to technically violate Carlson's contract with Fox, but his lawyers' letter effectively holds that Fox breached the contract first.

I don't know if this will breach his contract. Tucker has always had the right to post on social media as he chooses. He'll just be posting a bit more on social media than he used to.

Fox may have a contract for his exclusive television rights but they don't own his rights to just speak generally.

I don't think there'll be money involved. Because taking money would almost certainly breach Tucker's contract. Then Fox could sue him and attempt to get a court to force him to stay off the air.

Rather, I think Tucker will be doing this show for free. At least for now.

Why?

To put pressure on Fox. To let them know he'll compete against them, even if he's not getting paid any money to do it. To let them know that this isn't 2003 any more -- keeping someone off of television doesn't keep them from speaking and mounting a show to compete with you.

So they might as well free him from his contract.

I imagine his Twitter show will therefore play at... 8pm. With a possible "rebroadcast" at 11pm, to also hurt Fox's West Coast time zone ratings.

Update: Tucker is giving up the $25 million he's still owed on his contract, claims Puck.

If so, I guess this is a breach -- though a case of breaching second -- and I guess he will be free to make money from subscriptions and ads.

NEWS: Tucker Carlson will relaunch his show *on Twitter* with help from former Fox News staff. He will forgo at least $25 million owed to him by Fox Corp. in order to break non-compete clause.

More from Rebel News, thanks to andycanuck. That article has a transcript of his Twitter announcement.

After pointing out that there are "limits" to what truths you can say -- and that some truths will result in your being fired -- Tucker has this to say about the fake debate we see on cable news:


"You often hear people say the news is full of lies. But most of the time that's not exactly right. Much of what you see on television or read in the New York Times is in fact true in the literal sense. It could pass one of the media's own 'fact checks.' Lawyers would be willing to sign off on it, in fact they may have. But that doesn't make it true. It's not true. At the most basic level the news you consume is a lie. A lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind," Carlson began.

"Facts have been withheld on purpose along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated," he continued, before explaining how lies are told through omission.

"You can't have a free society if people aren't allowed to say what they think is true," said Carlson. "Speech is the fundamental prerequisite for democracy."

...


"You see it on cable news, you talk about it on Twitter. The result may feel like a debate but actually the gatekeepers are still in charge. We think that's a bad system. We know exactly how it works and we're sick of it," he added.

"Starting soon we will be bringing a new version of the show we've been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter," Carlson announced. "We'll be bringing some other things too, which we'll tell you about. But for now we're just grateful to be here."

"Free speech is the main right that you have. Without it, you have no others," he concluded. "See you soon."

If this is true -- whoa.

Why should Dominion care if a guy who did not make allegations against Dominion is employed or not?

BREAKING: TUCKER CARLSON WAS TOLD BY A MEMBER OF THE FOX BOARD THAT HE WAS TAKEN OFF THE AIR AS PART OF THE DOMINION SETTLEMENT, PER TUCKER'S LEGAL TEAM

Posted by: JackStraw

Could it be because... Dominion is owned largely by Blackrock?
