Fox News informed Tucker Carlson’s attorneys that the outlet fired the TV host “with cause,” and intends to refuse severance.
Fox News gives the cold shoulder
A number of “persons familiar with the situation,” who might – or might not – be the same group that informed the Los Angeles Times that Fox News did indeed fire Carlson – shared their information with Radar Online. According to them, the lawyers used the phrase with cause in reference to a pending lawuit involving Carson. Abby Grossberg accused Fox News – and Tucker Carlson and some of his staff – of discrimination and intentional infliction of emotional distress. These “Messrs. PFWTS” said Rupert Murdoch himself gave the order, and gave it in relation to the Abby Grossberg lawsuit.
The company has, in the past, paid generous severances to on-air or behind-the-camera talent who leave. But evidently Fox News seeks to avoid that in Tucker’s case.
Times have changed. The days of a golden parachute when confronted with allegations like this are over. Mr. PFWTS
Those same sources fully expect that:
- Tucker Carlson will sue for the severance he would feel Fox News owes him, and
- Fox will refuse to settle and go to trial.
The sources indicate, by their tone, that they believe Tucker Carlson guilty of “sexism, antisemitism, and harassment” against Grossberg. Or at least, that is how they expect Fox News to treat the allegations – and Carlson himself.
Carlson, for his part, has dropped not one hint of whether he intends to contest the “with cause” claim.
Anonymous sources – Sources Close To The Case, Persons Familiar With The Situation, Senior Administration Officials, et al. – are both boon and bane to modern journalism today. These particular “insights” and predictions come from persons claiming direct knowledge of the principals, and the principles, involved. But because CNAV can neither confirm nor deny these allegations independently, we present them as unverified rumor. Accordingly, we ask readers to take them with a grain of salt.
The gloatfest begins
Elsewhere, an orgy of gloating appears to have broken out. For example, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who earlier accused Carlson before Jen Psaki of “inciting political violence,”
“Good things can happen when we hold people accountable for their lies,” she allegedly tweeted yesterday. Yet CNAV searched diligently for such a tweet on her personal and Congressional accounts, and found it nowhere. That could indicate that she deleted the tweet overnight.
