Tucker Carlson Uncovers the Real Reason Fox News Fired Him, Goes Public: ‘I Mean, I Know It Was’

Star anchor Tucker Carlson reveals the real reason Fox News fired him in his new biography.

Tucker told his biographer, Chadwick Moore, that the Murdochs had to settle a lawsuit with Dominion.

The termination of Carlson’s show was reportedly part of the deal with Dominion.

Tucker said: “They agreed to take me off the air, my show off the air, as a condition of the Dominion settlement.

“They had to settle this; Rupert couldn’t testify.

“I think that deal was made minutes before the trial started.

“I mean, I know it was,” he added.

Carlson said he was stunned by the firing and thought Suzanne Scott, the Fox News chief executive, was calling to congratulate him on the sixth anniversary of his move to the 8 pm primetime slot.

Instead, however, she fired him.

“I was first confused, and then shocked,” he said.

“It was just, ‘We’re taking you off the air.’

“No explanation why, and they’ve let me guess ever since.

“That’s literally all I know.

“I asked if I violated my contract.

“They said, no, I’m not fired, I’m still under contract.”

Carlson’s biographer said, “Although Dominion has denied this, my sources have intimate knowledge of the situation and they have assured me even before this news leaked that that is, in fact, the truth.”

Fox News has “categorically denied” that Carlson’s firing was a condition of the settlement, however,

Dominion, meanwhile, has also denied it.

Dominion issued a statement that said:

“As the Fox principals who negotiated the settlement well know, Dominion made no demands about Tucker Carlson’s employment orally or in writing.

“Any claims otherwise are categorically false and a thinly veiled effort to further damage Dominion.

“Fox should take every effort to stop these lies immediately.”
