IT’s WAR!: Carlson’s Lawyers Send ‘Aggressive’ Letter Accusing Fox of Fraud, Breach of Contract

General Tucker Carlson has amassed his troops on the border with Fox News as he prepares to give them the “shock and awe” treatment we gave Saddam Hussein. In the opening salvo, Carlson’s lawyers sent a letter to Fox, accusing them of fraud and breach of contract. If Fox is found to be guilty of fraud or breach of contract, that would free Carlson from the no-compete clause in his contract and that would allow him to work anywhere he wants to in the future.

The letter, sent to Fox officials Viet Dinh and Irena Briganti was authored by his lawyers, Bryan Freedman and Harmeet Dhillon.

From Axios:

The lawyers accuse Fox executives — which two sources say are Dinh and Murdoch — of making “material representations,” or promises, to Carlson that were intentionally broken, constituting fraud.

Notably, the letter alleges Fox broke an agreement with Carlson not to leak his private communications to the media and not to use Carlson’s private messages “to take any adverse employment action against him.”

The letter also alleges 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.

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.

“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 says.

The letter claims:

“‘Rupert Murdoch himself’ broke promises to Carlson ‘intentionally and with reckless disregard for the truth”‘. That he was told by a board member that he “was taken off the air” as part of the Dominion settlement and that “Briganti, Fox’s longtime communications and PR chief, attempted to ‘undermine, embarrass, and interfere’ with Carlson’s future business prospects.”

An outside attorney working for Dominion, Stephen Shackleford, told Axios that “Dominion did not insist on them [Fox News] firing Tucker Carlson as part of the settlement,” and a Fox News spokesperson told the outlet that the allegation is “categorically false.”

Carlson’s attorneys also made it clear that they believe Fox’s Briganti is behind a number of leaks to the media intended to harm Carlson’s reputation, writing:

“Make no mistake, we intend to subpoena Ms. Briganti’s cell phone records and related documents, which evidence communications with her and all media, including, but not limited to The New York Times.”

Hinting at potential litigation over the issues, the letter also included a preservation notice, requesting that Fox “take immediate steps to ‘preserve all existing documents and data relevant’ to Carlson’s relationship with the organization, including communications between executives and several media outlets.”

Fox is -playing with fire and they have already been burned and it appears that they won’t be satisfied until the outlet is nothing but ashes. Advertisers will move to other outlets that have suddenly become more competitive than Fox in the key demographic of people ages 25 to 54.

    My investigation into a DHS program that instructed law enforcement to treat Christians as terrorists won me the 2014 CJN Journalist of the Year award. Here is a video of Glenn Beck reading my article on his program: I am a troll bridge. You can cross me, but you will pay a price.

    I doubt very seriously that Fox will lose very many of the 25-54 demographic. Where would they go, Newsmax, NPR, CNN, PMSNBC??? NOT LIKELY!

      Well, they are leaving, the numbers say so.

      Blaze is working to replace FOX. FOX has treated people viewers trust and will pay a price. I have already switched and doubt I am alone. Piss on people who treat employees like so much dross.

  3. You made some nice points there. I did a search on the issue and found most individuals will agree with your blog.
