Silencing Regime Critic Tucker Carlson.
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly on her show last week:
Tucker Carlson hasn’t actually been fired. He’s still an employee of the Fox News Channel. What happened was, Suzanne Scott called him, she’s the CEO, on Monday, morning, and said, um, he was not going to be allowed to do any more shows, and that he had been kicked out of his company email, and now they’re going to have to negotiate an exit. …
Right now he’s not free to launch a podcast or a digital show, or negotiate with other employers at all because he’s still under contract.
On Saturday, news site 19FortyFive reported they’d reached out to Carlson for a comment on the issue. Via text message, he replied: “I’m still employed by Fox.”
It’s been widely reported that Carlson’s current contract with Fox runs through 2024. And, according to Kelly, he earns $20 million a year.
Does this mean that Fox plans to silence Tucker’s voice for the next year and eight months — the period leading up to arguably the most consequential election in American history?
Will the network keep him on the payroll for the remainder of his contract to prevent him from finding another platform?
After shelling out $787.5 million to settle the Dominion lawsuit, will Fox spend another $33 million just to muzzle Carlson ahead of the 2024 election?

The annual White House Correspondent’s Dinner was rife with one liners degradating former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former CNN host Don Lemon. …
President Joe Biden .. made a reference to his 2024 campaign while taking a swipe at Carlson.
“The job isn’t finished, I mean it is finished for Tucker Carlson,” he said to audible boos from the crowd.
What are you booing about, like you think that’s not reasonable? Give me a break,” the agitated president said.
