Tucker Carlson breaches contract launching new talk show on twitter

(MENAFN) Tucker Carlson broke his employment contract by starting a new talk show on Twitter, Fox News has claimed. The network asserts that it has restricted rights to Carlson’s services.

General counsel for the network, Bernard Gugar, sent a message on Tuesday evening to Carlson’s attorneys, cautioning that the network would take action to defend its pledged rights, Axios stated on Wednesday.

“This evening, we were made aware of Mr. Tucker Carlson’s appearance on twitter in a video that lasted over 10 minutes,” the news agency cited Gugar as claiming. “Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Mr. Carlson’s services shall be completely exclusive to Fox.”

Carlson, who achieves the top ratings in United States cable news history, was exiled by Fox in April, following the network agreement to compensate a USD787 million defamation settlement to Dominion Voting Systems for supposedly making untrue declarations around the firm.
