‘We’re back’: Tucker takes show to Twitter, goes after Fox with accusations of fraud and breach of contract

It turns out that Fox News won’t be able to sideline its former star attraction until after the 2024 election with the bombshell announcement from Tucker Carlson that he will soon be relaunching an updated version of his popular primetime show on Elon Musk’s Twitter, one of the few remaining bastions of free speech in a country where a corrupt media functions as a de facto arm of the Biden regime, the Democratic Party and the Deep State.

Two weeks after Fox pulled the plug, a hit reportedly ordered by Rupert Murdoch himself, Carlson took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon where he called out the liars in the establishment press and dealt a body blow to his adversaries whose victory dance on the grave of his broadcasting career was premature, because you just can’t keep a good man down.

“We’re back,” Carlson wrote as he returned with a vengeance in the three-minute video that put the corrupt politicians, profiteers, and perverts on notice that there will be hell to pay now that he is set to be unleashed with no restraints, news that likely struck fear into the hearts of the wicked while bolstering the spirits of conservatives and truth seekers who were deprived of their nightly dose of righteous commentary by the suits at Fox News headquarters.

“You often hear people say the news is full of lies,” he began. “But most of the time that’s not exactly right. Much of what you see on television or read in the New York Times is in fact true in the literal sense, it could pass one of the media’s own ‘fact checks.’ Lawyers would be willing to sign off on it, in fact, they may have. But that doesn’t make it true.”

“It’s not true. At the most basic level, the news you consume is a lie,” he continued. “A lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. Facts have been withheld on purpose. Along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated.”

“How does that work?” Carlson asked. “Let’s see. If I tell you that a man has been unjustly arrested for armed robbery, that is not, strictly speaking, a lie. He may have been framed. At this point, there’s been no trial so no one can really say. But if I don’t mention the fact that the same man has been arrested for the same crime six times before, am I really informing you? No. I’m not. I’m misleading you, and that’s what the news media are doing, in every story that matters, every day of the week, every week of the year.”

“What’s it like to work in a system like that? After more than 30 years in the middle of it, we could tell you stories,” he said. “The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can. But there are always limits. And you know that if you bump up against those limits often enough, you will be fired for it. That’s not a guess – it’s guaranteed.”

“Every person who works in English language media understands that,” Carlson added. “The rule of what you can’t say defines everything. It’s filthy, really. And it’s utterly corrupting. You can’t have a free society if people aren’t allowed to say what they think is true. Speech is the fundamental prerequisite for democracy. That’s why it’s enshrined in the first of our constitutional amendments.

Amazingly, as of tonight, there aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech. The last big one remaining in the world, the only one, is Twitter, where we are now,” he said. “Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site. Everybody’s allowed here, and we think that’s a good thing. And yet, for the most part, the news that you see analyzed on Twitter comes from media organizations that are themselves thinly disguised propaganda outlets.”

“You see it on cable news, you talk about it on Twitter. The result may feel like a debate but actually, the gatekeepers are still in charge. We think that’s a bad system. We know exactly how it works and we’re sick of it,” he added.

“Staring soon we’ll be bringing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter. We’ll be bringing some other things too which we’ll tell you about. But for now, we’re just grateful to be here,” Tucker concluded. “Free speech is the main right that you have. Without it, you have no others. See you soon.”

In other Tucker-related news, Axios reported on Tuesday that Carlson has gone on offense against his former employer, accusing Fox News of fraud and breach of contract.

According to the outlet, an “aggressive” letter from his attorneys to Fox “positions Carlson to argue that the noncompete provision in his contract is no longer valid — freeing him to launch his own competing show or media enterprise.”

Axios reports that the letter, from Carlson’s attorney Bryan Freedman, said that network employees including “Rupert Murdoch himself,” broke promises to Carlson “intentionally and with reckless disregard for the truth.”

The letter also reportedly alleges that “Fox broke promises not to settle with Dominion Voting Systems ‘in a way which would indicate wrongdoing’ on the part of Carlson and not to take any actions in a settlement that would harm Carlson’s reputation.”

A Fox board member is said to have told Carlson that he was removed from the air as a part of the network’s $787 million settlement, sources told Axios.

“According to a source familiar with Carlson’s position, his lawyers believe that the misrepresentations alleged by Carlson amount to a breach of contract because they created additional terms of Carlson’s employment that were then broken by the company,” the outlet reported.

“These actions not only breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing in the Agreement, but give rise to claims for breach of contract, and intentional and negligent misrepresentation,” the letter states.

Twitter reacted to the big news with SiriusXM host and political commentator Megyn Kelly writing, “Tucker flips Fox News the middle finger & takes his show to Twitter & @elonmusk. RIGHT ON!!”

“@TuckerCarlson saw the rot at the heart of our mainstream media. I saw it too. No more narrative. No more gatekeepers,” wrote former Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, a former television news reporter. “The truth and the people who tell it will NOT be silenced. I can’t wait to hear the free and uncensored Tucker on @Twitter!”

Other reactions:

There was one other reaction of note and it was a big one, the “Chief Twit” stated that Tucker has not signed a contract with Twitter and that there would be no special rules.

“On this platform, unlike the one-way street of broadcast, people are able to interact, critique and refute whatever is said. And, of course, anything misleading will get @CommunityNotes,” tweeted Elon Musk on Tuesday night.

“I also want to be clear that we have not signed a deal of any kind whatsoever. Tucker is subject to the same rules & rewards of all content creators,” Musk said.
