This Phone Call from Fox News Lawyer is at The Heart of Tucker Carlson’s Lawsuit Against Fox News

A message from Fox News’s legal team could have a profound effect.

It reveals the attacks Fox News had been throwing at Tucker Carlson before they fired him.

This one phone call is at the heart of Tucker Carlson’s lawsuit against Fox News.

Two reliable sources say that a phone conversation involving a Fox News legal representative has become a pivotal aspect in Tucker Carlson’s legal dispute against the embattled network.

Despite firing Carlson, he’s still under contract and the network reportedly plans to keep it that way until after the 2024 elections.

“As of right now, the plan remains the same: pay out Carlson’s contract and keep him on the sidelines through the 2024 elections,” a Fox News source told Breitbart. “They knew they would take a beating for this, but everyone — and I mean everyone — is pretty rattled. They weren’t expecting the blowback to be this bad. Hate to say it, but it’s clear that Rupert has lost a step or two.”

Podcaster Joe Rogan gave his opinion that the “smart” and “not stupid” thing for Fox News to do would be to pay out Tucker’s contract to keep him from becoming a threat.

“You’d be better off just giving him the same amount of money he made when he was on the air, then you would have with him opposing you,” Rogan said.

However, sources close to Carlson are accusing the network of fraud and breach of contract for allegedly leaking negative stories about him to the press.

“Fox News’ Chief Legal Counsel Viet Dinh allegedly called a close associate of Carlson’s on May 3 asking to have a message relayed to Carlson,” the Daily Caller reported Friday.

“Dinh expressed regret at how the previous week had played out in the media, according to two sources, reassuring Carlson’s camp that Fox News had ‘not authorized’ the leaks that led to several negative headlines… Critically, he also confessed, according to the sources, that the network’s leaders suspected a member of the board of directors had been speaking to the press about Tucker without authorization.”

Carlson’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, told the Daily Caller the leaks amounted to a “smear campaign.”

“It strains credulity that, immediately after agreeing to pay almost $780 million to settle serious allegations of misconduct that a member of Fox’s Board of Directors would be engaging in an attempted smear campaign by illegally leaking information about Tucker Carlson,” Freedman said.

“However, we have to trust that it is true when the Chief Legal Officer informs Tucker that he believes it to be the case.”
