Fox tells Carlson to get off Twitter
June 12, 2023
Fox News has demanded that Tucker Carlson cease posting videos to Twitter. Fox lawyers accused Carlson of violating the terms of his contract, which runs until early 2025 and limits his ability to appear in media other than Fox, reports NYT.
Since Carlson was ousted by Fox News, he has begun producing a cut down version of his Fox programme, Tucker Carlson Tonight, and posting it to Twitter. The show bears some of the hallmarks of his prime-time show on Fox, including a monologue focused on current affairs and cultural issues.
A lawyer for Carlson said Fox News’s legal threat was not in the interest of the network’s audience.
