BUCKLE UP: FoxNews Threatens Lawsuit Over Tucker Running Shows On Twitter

There’s no way around it. Tucker made a BIG splash when he released his 10-minute video on Twitter this week. His FANS may have loved it, but his old employer wasn’t happy. Not one bit.

For anyone who may have spent the last couple of days in Hunter’s now-infamous sensory depravation tank or the dark side of the moon and somehow missed it, Tucker showed up on Twitter this week with a video that put up some BIG numbers.

In a world where everything is unreal hyperbole, what do we mean by ‘big numbers’? Here’s a screenshot of where the number of people who have viewed it currently stands.

Any of those metrics are dizzying. But we’ve circled the one most relevant for this conversation.

Do you remember what TV ratings are like? Here’s something relatively recent that popped up in a quick web search.

Since TV and Twitter are very different communication tools, these stats are by no means a fair apples-to-apples comparison, but at least it’s a helpful reference point.

There’s a creepy parallel to the drama you see among high schoolers dating. Girl breaks up with a guy and then is upset to see he has started dating someone else. Tucker got axed. He moved on.

It doesn’t matter if Fox is the one that dumped him. They’re upset about him moving on.

Axios is reporting that the legal team from Fox News sent him angry letters after his show on Twitter. They are claiming he is in breech of contract.

“Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Mr. Carlson’s ‘services shall be completely exclusive to Fox,'” the network’s general counsel Bernar Gugar wrote, according to the letter seen by Axios. — BusinessInsider

Tucker, who is already in a legal battle with Fox — in a strange twist of irony, he and Don Lemon have both hired the same legal firm at the same time over their respective firings — is not backing down.

First, he has already asserted that Fox News is in breach of their contract, which would obviously impact their claims that he is in breach. But there’s another reason.

By the way it’s described in reporting, the language in the contract seems to stipulate a prohibition of offering services for some other company. Strictly speaking, he isn’t actually working or ‘offering services for’ anybody.

Tucker is just like any other content creator out there. He’s using the internet to build an audience. He’s just better at it than any of the news networks want him to be. Maybe it has something to do with the fact viewers actually LIKE him.

His popularity might explain why our exclusive Tucker Carlson 2024 shirts (and Trump/Carlson and DeSantis/Carlson) have been flying off the shelves. (And some similar Tucker shirts.)

His legal counsel’s snappy reply to FoxNews is very much on-brand for Tucker.

“Fox defends its very existence on freedom of speech grounds,” Bryan Freedman, Carlson’s attorney, told Axios. “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.” — Business Insider


That’s hitting them where it hurts.

FoxNews had best tread carefully here.

If they pick a public fight with Tucker, there’s a lot at stake. It’s pretty clear that the public likes Tucker a lot more than they like the Fox News Corp.

There is already some indication that Fox is in the process of BudLighting itself. (And have you noticed all those BlackRock ads?)

The last thing Fox execs should want is to accelerate the process of alienating their core audience.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
