Tucker Carlson accuses Fox News of fraud and breach of contract

A letter from attorneys representing Tucker Carlson accused Fox News of fraud and breach of contract weeks after he left the cable news channel.

Sources told Axios that the letter was sent to Fox News before Carlson posted an announcement on Twitter that he would be continuing his show in a new format on the popular social media platform.

Carlson's attorneys argued that Fox News promised not to settle with Dominion Voting Systems in a way that would "indicate wrongdoing" on his part. They also accused the network of leaking "his private communications to the media."

Accusing Fox News of breach of contract would allow Carlson to argue that his announcement to broadcast a show on Twitter would not be breaking the contract.

"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 posted to Twitter.

"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," he added. "Without it, you have no others."

Carlson's contract with Fox News runs until January 2025, which would prevent him from any new media endeavor. He has already received numerous offers from other media outlets.

A separate report said that Carlson was floating the idea of moderating a presidential debate and that he had already talked to former President Donald Trump about the possibility.

Dominion Voting Systems told Axios that it did not insist on Carlson's firing as a part of the settlement made with Fox News worth about $787.5 million.
