Fox Notifies Tucker Carlson That Posting a Ten Minute Monologue on Twitter Breaches His Contract

Fox maintains that taking away Tucker Carlson's show -- despite the fact that his contract is for the purposes of hosting a show -- does not breach the contract.

Why it matters: A breach of contract claim sets Fox News up to explore potential legal action against Carlson, a move that would intensify the already thorny public battle between the two parties.

Carlson's lawyers told Axios that any legal action by Fox would violate his First Amendment rights.

"Fox defends its very existence on freedom of speech grounds. Now they want to take Tucker Carlson's right to speak freely away from him because he took to social media to share his thoughts on current events," said Carlson's lawyer, Bryan Freedman, in a statement to Axios.

Tucker's motivation -- I speculate without evidence -- might have been to post a completely legal video, to induce Fox to declare he's in breach, so that Tucker can now say, "According to Fox, the contract is over, so I'm going ahead with my show. And I'm going to sue them for voiding the contract without cause so I can get my $25 million."

I have no idea if this makes any sense.

Tucker's Twitter debut garnered 70 million views.

Egg with Legs Brian Stelter attacked Tucker Carlson's independent, wildcat show for being a skeleton crew operation:

"Tucker on Twitter" is how @TuckerCarlson's video is branded. Notice his right hand in the wide shot: He's using a TelePrompTer controller to run the prompter himself pic.twitter.com/mzpJ9SFG88

-- Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) June 6, 2023

The guy who posted pictures of himself broadcasting from home in his Big Boy Underpants is scandalized that Tucker is controlling his teleprompter himself.

BTW, half the time you see someone on any news program remotely, most of the time they're sitting in a van in front of a greenscreen. The news media is often very cheap.

Brian Stelter, the expert on ratings, declared, without evidence, that Tucker's 70 million views were fake:

There are two kinds of people on Twitter: Those who believe the "view counts" especially around alleged video streams, and those who know better.

The rest of the corporate media attacked Tucker Carlson's independent, wildcat show for not having the massive staff and huge budgets which have propelled them to the precipice of an Industry Extinction Event.

CNN:

Tucker Carlson launches first episode of low-budget Twitter show after Fox News firing

Oliver Darcy
By Oliver Darcy, CNN
Published 11:32 PM EDT, Tue June 6, 2023

How are CNN high budgets -- Megyn Kelly said the other day that CNN was notoriously overstaffed -- translating into viewership or credibility, you skinny-jeaned googly-eyed gape-assed rentboy?


Anne Applebaum called Tucker's observation that Ukraine and the US blew up the Nord Stream pipeline as well as the dam "lies."

Anne Applebaum
@anneapplebaum

Tucker Carlson's lies cost Fox $800 million. Now he is still lying, and Twitter will eventually pay the price too.

Zelenskyy's going to sue?

Applebaum herself was lying:

@amuse
@amuse

@CommunityNotes

Evidence released by Dominion showed Tucker Carlson actually refuted claims against the company. Also the settlement was less than $800M.

I point out Anne Applebaum's tweet because her own husband, a Polish political figure, also declared that the US blew up the Nord Stream pipeline.. But he praised the US for blowing it up.

I'd link his tweet celebrating the US's bombing of the pipleline but he has, get this, deleted it.

But here it is anyway:

thankyouusa.jpg

This is the typical leftist maneuver: If you observe a fact of leftist behavior and criticize it, you're engaging in "conspiracy theories and lies." But if you observe that same fact of leftist behavior and praise it, you're telling the truth. The truth or falsity of the observation depends entirely not on the external objective facts but only whether you are praising the left or criticizing it when noting the fact.

8 Non compete clauses are strictly construed against the employer. They have to be reasonable and limited in time and scope. They must specifically describe what exactly is "competition" and have a specific geographic limit. I can't imagine a non-compete clause that would prevent Tucker from doing a selfie video in his basement and posting it on Twitter to the entire world would survive any of those restrictions.

So?
What's wrong with a guy starting a show, calling it something, and running a lean operation? He probably would like to have a producer or an intern or someone to run the Prompter for him, but he clearly doesn't have one. So he said, "fuck it, I'll do it myself."

Good. That's a *good* thing. That's admirable, actually. "I don't have what I used to have, but I need to get back in it and if that means I wear multiple hats, then so be it" is a pretty good attitude to have.

Stelter and the world's oldest teenager are being incredibly petty in their criticisms - and appear to be missing the point entirely.

67 I think Fox had a pretty poor case, especially depending on the wording of the contract. My guess is that they did not mention doing social media stuff, only major news organizations and outlets.

69 I'm guessing not only Tucker's lawyers, but Elon's too, looked over his contract in detail, and saw that nothing Tucker did violated his contract. They could probably even go a step further and say that Fox people always post stuff on Twitter without approval of management, so it's therefore not considered the same as having a show.

Fox may not want to open the pandoras box that comes along with a lawsuit, as then information about him being taken off the air goes public, and if it has anything to do with the Dominion suit, that seems like a a recipe for both Fox and Dominion to lose a few hundred million each, since having someone removed for something that had nothing to do with them seems like a clear case of wrongful termination.

Carlson isn't an idiot and I am sure he knew lawsuits would come in as soon as he did this. His lawyers had public responses out very quickly - quickly enough that they were probably prepared statements.

79 "What's wrong with a guy starting a show, calling it something, and running a lean operation? He probably would like to have a producer or an intern or someone to run the Prompter for him, but he clearly doesn't have one. "

Because he's doing a job that by union contract should never be done by the guy on the screen.

Same reason that your union electrician will never cut open the wall to get the wires he's trying to fix: cutting open the wall and then fixing the resulting hole is some other trade union's job.

I'm sure Tater intended to imply that he was either doing a job that was beneath him, or that he could get anyone to work for him, but really it stems from the union thing.

82 67 I think Fox had a pretty poor case, especially depending on the wording of the contract. My guess is that they did not mention doing social media stuff, only major news organizations and outlets. Fox will argue that there's an assumed penumbra but no judge worth a damn will buy that in contract law.

Some it is also probably incompetence and envy.

If you've ever been in front of a camera reading off a Prompter, you know it's actually a bit more tricky than it looks. You have to read ahead, process phonetic spellings, remember where you are when you cut to tape, etc. It actually takes a fair amount of focus to use a Prompter successfully. Having to run that prompter yourself is just yet more complexity, and another thing to keep track of without losing stride. It doesn't take brilliance, but you do have to pay a *lot* of attention to pull it off.

I doubt Stelter could do it. He's very, very stupid and, more importantly, extremely coddled.

Beyond his laziness and incompetence, the remote control buttons for the Prompter are probably fairly small (they were on the older systems I have used), which will make reliably hitting the correct button difficult if you - like Stelter - have chubby fingers dripping with an amalgam of old butter, sour cream, cheese and bacon bits.

133 I'm not a lawyer, so I really don't know. Isn't it considered constructive dismissal to stop scheduling someone for their job? I'm assuming Tucker isn't hourly, but I'd guess his contract has some sort of bonuses for shows that get a certain viewership number or share. If Tucker isn't allowed to do shows, then it makes it impossible for him to attempt to fulfill that part of his contract.

141 All cable "sneewz" has been losing audience in huge chunks at least since the last election. That includes Fox, who simply manage to stay at the top of the dying carcass. People simply don't want what they're selling, which is catering to a specific conformation bias. Tucker changed that. He went old school and took on the stories and angles nobody else would pursue. He used simple logic and reason that most people could follow, and posed questions which challenged the prevailing narratives. That is, he didn't follow the crowd, he questioned the basis of their arguments which was almost always poorly sourced and backed only by their sycophants. I think Tucker going to Twitter will finally put the final nail in the mainstream media, and they know it. No talent, fat, pillow biting, buffet raiding mental midgets like Stetler can't live in a world where you have to actually form arguments, present proof and defend them. Pretty soon they're gonna find him face down in the pancake vat at IHOP.

The punishment is the process. Fox needs to be punished back financially for defamation on top of what they owe for breach of contract.

Easy enough to find out. From his real show (not the CNN+ show)
The traditional version of Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN has gone 24 straight telecasts without cracking 900,000 viewer.

So let's call it an average of 850k viewers per show. That's 129 episodes to reach 100 million.

158 Huh. Gavin Newsom is fundraising a run for president under the guise of a 28th Amendment to repeal the 2nd.

Gov. Newsom proposes constitutional amendment to curb gun violence tinyurl.com/yrvmyrbd

Gavin Newsom on Thursday proposed a 28th Amendment to the US Constitution in what he describes as an effort to end America's gun violence crisis.

"The gun lobby says we can't stop the carnage America now experiences every day without violating the 2nd Amendment – that thoughts and prayers are the best we can do… that's a lie," Newsom said in a statement.
The amendment "permanently enshrines" four gun measures that Newsom claims have broad support.
This includes raising the minimum age to purchase a firearm to 21. "Because if you can't buy a beer, you shouldn't be able to buy a gun," Newsom said in a video posted to YouTube.
It would also mandate universal background checks, institute waiting periods for all gun purchases, & ban assault rifles.
"Those weapons of war our founding fathers never foresaw," Newsom said.

The governor asked supporters to go to campaignfordemocracy.com (Gavin Newsom PAC) to sign a petition.

The American people are sick of Congress’ inaction.

The 28th will enshrine 4 widely supported gun safety freedoms -- while leaving the 2nd Amendment intact:
1) Raising the minimum age to purchase a gun to 21
2) Universal background checks
3) A reasonable waiting period for gun purchases
4) Banning the civilian purchase of assault weapons

The question is who breached the contract first. If it's true what fix did they breached, if not tucker did by walking away. In either event I don't think they can stop him from what he is doing but if fox is correct they may argue damages

I don't mean to quibble, and Ace used the word "fake" too, but that's not the issue. There's some willful fraud in the raw 70m view count, maybe statistically significant, but it's not a huge concern.

The problem is ignoring multiple views by the same person, and counting anyone who watches just a few seconds as a viewer. There's no filtering with appropriate minimum qualifications.

Yep. All we see is "100 million view" without any context about what that means. If 20 million people watch it 5 times or 10 people watch it 10 million times each, we'll never know.

Just finished an audiobook of his autobiography "How I Saved The World" (and yes, he jokes about having done so at age 40 or whatever a la DogEater).

It was pretty enjoyable -- he has a good sense of humor, and didn't know that he (and O'Reilly, for whom he worked) really went after judges who were letting child rapists out of prison with slaps on the wrists ... before it was cool.

Funniest part was that his mom -- a dyed in the wool liberal -- would text him with mostly complaints and criticisms when he appeared on "The View." He goes through like 150 of them, with his mostly (subsequently, for the book) sarcastic responses.

No, it's essential to have all that "production value" to goose your reptilian brain into absorbing words from text.

I tolerated all that crap because it was the only way to access what I "needed". Alas, I don't need it and Tucker has dumped the garbage pomp and circumstance that is but distraction.

That wasn't the point Tucker was trying to make. He was saying that IF it was true, it would be the biggest story of the millennium. Of all time.

Maybe there's enough evidence that it IS true. Or pick a different story that is much more plausible (e.g. voter fraud conspiracies).

We'll never know about it because the media is so full of lies most people cannot tell truth from fiction anymore.

231 I not too long ago discovered the Reddit for my city. And while it's always been filled with useless, mentally ill, city folk, the responses to this slightly sepia tone covering the adjacent NYC is hilarious.

One made a part "OMG is this our future?" And then posted about how this will now be common..... despite it being the first time it's happened.

Another said they feel like they're in a war zone... because it's a little yellow and smells like a BBQ.

Still a different lunatic talked about how this is giving them anxiety...and stuff they said makes me assume its a 20 year old, who I'll also guess is afraid of rain and slight breezes.

The last wad someone claiming about street sweeping "Can you believe they expect us to go move our car with all this going on!" Except today it's pretty normal out, with thr sky blue and no real smell.

There are no circus distractions to make up for your lack of anything cogent or defensible. No "breaking" news or state sponsored commercials about the COVID vaccine. It's all under his control. Let that sink in for a moment. It vitiates their entire control of the narrative.

296 One of the closest guarded "stats" in the streaming business are the key timestamp moments in shows when too many people pause or stop watching completely.

YouTube recently started publicly showing the most-rewound parts of videos, although I can't figure out why some videos get that treatment and some don't. And creators on YT do get more of that data, including how much of the video was actually watched.

336 @296: "YouTube recently started publicly showing the most-rewound parts of videos ..."

A feature made popular by the porn industry before YouTube jumped on the bandwagon. Seriously! As far as not all videos, there needs to be a minimum view count and common pattern to the viewing pattern. For example, pop culture and sports video with ad reads have a common pattern since so many people manually skip past those. Product and movie review videos have lots of people skipping to the conclusion. But news and documentary videos won't show the timeline graph if people seem to be randomly skipping all over the place.

378 Just a reminder, back in the 30s kids graduated HS at 16 not 18. The two additional years added were a sop to the Teachers Unions. Many a 14 year old lied about their age to join up and fight during WWII. This was not uncommon. Also, most 16 year old HS graduates had better math, reading a reasoning skills than todays 18 year old graduates.

Fracas is derived from the Italian word "fracassare" and the French version, "fracasser", meaning, to make an uproar.

In English, it's usually pronounced "Frah-cah" with the s silent. But honestly, say it whatever way you want.

TuCa seems to put as much effort into researching and double checking his resources.

Not yet, if my understanding is correct. Twitter isn't really designed for monetizing video or revenue-sharing with creators.

The "views" isn't how many people watched the video. If you scroll past it, that counts as a view, even if it's a retweet. Supposedly the real number is between 12-15% of that number, which is still far and above what Fox's numbers were. Even if the hype dies down, he'll be getting more eyes than he ever would at Fox. That has got to be freaking them out.

Nielsen kinda got bribed to overcount viewers in restaurants and bars for regional sports networks. Teams trying to puff themselves up for the best national matchups, leagues to pump the price for their package deals, and some carriers trying to make themselves than the rest.

466 Not yet, if my understanding is correct. Twitter isn't really designed for monetizing video or revenue-sharing with creators.

Definitely. If they did it inadvertently, an apology will cover it for me, because that stuff is getting good enough that honest mistakes can be made (and Fauxci DID serve under Trump, after all... it's totally believable that there are pics of them schmoozing).

On the other hand, if it was intentional... that would give me grave doubts about the integrity of the DeSantis team.

The way they were used in the video it was hard to tell, but looking at the single images they were obviously not photographs, looked more like photo-realistic painting. Somebody knew, and yes if some sort of "those responsible were terminated" doesn't come out, Ron's stock is dropping at least for me.

No?

Then he is simply engaged in free speech. What's the difference between having a tweet, an e-mail, or a video rant get shared on social media? Tucker might have low balled this effort just so he could claim "hey, this is me just talking, hence I can't be in breach of contract."

His contract might have a no compete clause, but if no money is changing hands, how is he competing? Does it have a no free speech clause?

508 The way Twitter lists 'views' does get a little squirrely sometimes. But based on what I'm seeing here:

-More than 106,000,000 have at least gone his page in the last 45 hours.
-And more than 22,500,000 have actually viewed his 10 minute monolog.

That 22+ million number is about 8 times more than his nightly viewer number on Fox.

AND it's about 35 TIMES MORE than CNN's primetime viewing numbers.

But yeah, the cowardly elitists in media think the production quality wasn't any good.
