If Tucker Carlson thinks he was wrongfully fired where is his lawsuit?

2 ( +2 / -0 )

There is every justification. It is an enforceable clause in a contract that Pucker signed under advice from his agent and attorneys. 

There was no other justification legally to fire Tucker other than he was becoming bigger than the network, Murdoch personally didn’t like how his former gf idolized Tucker and that speech that he gave at the heritage foundation, freaked Murdoch out any personally pushed for his dismissal, because of a personal Adamance.

He can make a living.

Then FNC wouldn’t need to hound him then as well as their lawyers

There are any number of ways. He cannot violate the non-compete clause. 

He is doing that. The bottom line is they don’t want him speaking on anything related to Trump or January 6, because Fox News has wrote Trump off and they know they can’t keep Tucker muzzled, so this was the perfect move, but it backfired

This is yet another attempt to deflect from the fact that you fundamentally do not understand the law be it civil, criminal or constitutional. 

I do, and stop bloviating on what I know or don’t know, you don’t know what I know or who I know.

Not a clue as to what it is talking about.

All the clues are there.

why dont they just raid and/or indict him too?

At the same time there is no justification for termination or to allow him to not earn money until 2025 there has to be a written and verbal justification to not allow him to talk about this case or the 2024 upcoming election, and why is that? We all know why and FNC is digging a bigger hole for themselves.

  Twitter cannot provide reliable figures

Wrong again.

Oh no they cannot. 

Yes, they can

If the same person clicks on the Tweet three times then that is recorded as viewed 3 times. Twitter does not record how long a person stays on a Tweet.

Kinda sounds like voter ID issues

There are many factors it does not know.

so you’re saying that, it should be the standard at Twitter just like with voter ID we should have a system that no cheating is allowed, and that includes polling, right? Simple yes or no will suffice.

Just listened to Tucker's show, which is so superior to anything else out there.

CNN, if ever there was a sinking ship for a network, had Chris Christie for one of their Town Halls.

At least they have a sense of humor.

It’s called a contract.

Yes, now the left care about laws???

There is a non-compete clause. It’s binding. Pucker will comply or Pucker will pay. 

At the same time there is no justification for termination or to allow him to not earn money until 2025 there has to be a written and verbal justification to not allow him to talk about this case or the 2024 upcoming election, and why is that? We all know why and FNC is digging a bigger hole for themselves. The real problem is, the Murdoch should’ve never got involved in the management portion of the journalistic business, they should’ve stayed out of that, it was like that, until after things started melting down a CNN, when Jeff sucker to go with the company, now you have essentially owners and shareholders they’re trying to dictate to the journalist what they can, and what they cannot say, that goes against all journalistic, integrity and rules, so I’m sure Tucker will welcome that fight gleefully.

Constitutional protections of free speech only deals with government suppression of speech. 

Which is exactly what you’re doing to the guy, and just make my point for me.

Not a single clue as to what Constitutional law means….

Most liberals do not, and the Murdochs are about to find out.

Tucker also has ammunition for going after Murdoch violating his constitutional rights

Oh, yeah they can.

And Murdoch is far richer and can afford a law suit.

He most certainly can and Tucker also has ammunition for going after Murdoch violating his constitutional rights in order to suppress him from talking a out Biden’s potential front runner.

Good luck with that.

Then that isn't "first-hand" it's "second-hand gossip".

Not gossip considering the source.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

Wasn’t he fired? 

oh that was fake news too.

No, that was “real” news.

Is he on Faux? no

Was that his decision? No

Was he given any other duties? No

Did Faux take back their equipment from his home studio? Yes

That means “fired”, lol.

 114 million views in his first episode

Fox News to Twitter is the modern day equivalent of straight to DVD.

   Fox News should sue him for breach of contract.

> They will try and Tucker luckily has a lot of dirt on FNC, so bring it on.

And Murdoch is far richer and can afford a law suit.

   So Tucker told you?

> No, but people that I know from the business did

   The article doesn't say whether or not Fox is also paying him through 2025.

> He is, I know first hand.

What he did was totally immoral. Winding up the less intelligent by feeding them stolen election trash while laughing at them off air.

Disgraceful specimen.

He is, I know first hand.

I am no fan of Tucker Carlson but depending on how his contract is worded and whether or not he is being paid by Fox he might have a good legal argument for breach of contract. I suspect this may get interesting.

He absolutely does, and I agree, should be interesting because FNC network losing to one man is beyond embarrassing.

I am a Tucker supporter.

Good luck man!

Elon Musk is doing his best to support him.

I'm also an Elon supporter.

Not a big fan of the liberals though.

Pucker is out of puck, er "luck"!

Luck, only luck, he's now officially killing FNC

with over 114 million views in his first episode. Brilliant!

Wasn’t he fired? 

oh that was fake news too.

technically, he is still employed by Fox, they just took them off the air, and his contract expires in 2025, so basically they're trying to keep him silent until after the presidential election because Fox knows that he has too much sway and power to the masses and they want to keep silent and thank God, the man has excellent lawyers that saw through the loopholes where he can still reach out to his followers.

Just another former Fox loser that is headed to insignificance...

He really ought to think about moving to Moscow - the Kremlin loves him...
