Fox News parts ways with Tucker Carlson

On Monday, Fox News announced that it had reached an agreement to end its association with Tucker Carlson, the network’s well-known and contentious host. This decision came less than a week after the network settled a lawsuit related to its coverage of the 2020 election. The network released a statement indicating that the final episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” aired on Friday.

Last week, Fox agreed to pay more than $787 million to Dominion Voting Systems and acknowledged that some of its reporting on the 2020 election, which allowed false claims of election fraud to be amplified by former President Donald Trump’s aides, was inaccurate. However, most of the erroneous reporting was attributed to other shows on the network and not to Carlson’s program. Carlson’s name was brought up during the lawsuit due to emails and text messages that were made public.

As part of the legal proceedings, Carlson and other Fox hosts were exposed as privately expressing doubts about their network’s claims regarding Dominion’s involvement in the alleged election fraud, while also being concerned about losing the support of Trump’s fanbase. In some of these messages, Carlson expressed personal animosity towards Trump, saying that he detested him intensely.

Abby Grossberg, a former Fox News producer, filed a lawsuit that implicated Carlson, alleging that she was terminated after refusing to provide misleading testimony in the Dominion lawsuit at the behest of Fox attorneys. After departing from Maria Bartiromo’s Fox program, Grossberg went to work for Carlson.

According to her lawsuit, Grossberg found that she had left one workplace rife with overt misogyny only to end up in a more hostile and unprofessional environment where the staff’s dislike and contempt for women permeated almost every decision made on a daily basis.

Fox has responded by filing a lawsuit of its own, attempting to prevent Grossberg from disclosing confidential conversations with Fox attorneys and asserting in a statement that her accusations concerning the Dominion case lack merit.

Fox has not yet provided a reason for Carlson’s departure.
