Tucker Carlson hit with cease-and-desist letter from Fox News corporate

 June 13, 2023

Fox News brass must have many regrets after sidelining its bread-and-butter host Tucker Carlson. 

In the wake of his outrageously successful new format, exclusive to Twitter, Carlson is crushing the ratings and swamping every other news program by a country mile. And Fox News is not happy.

According to Breitbart, the cable news outlet fired off a cease-and-desist letter to Carlson, demanding he put a stop to his new Twitter show that racks up tens of millions of views per episode.

So far, Carlson has published three of his newly formatted shows, each drawing insane amounts of attention. His first episode garnered more than 100 million views.

"Will not be silenced"

Harmeet Dhillon, the high-powered, high-profile attorney representing Carlson, made clear this week that no matter what Fox News tries, her client will not be shoved under the rug of censorship or suppression.

"My friend and client Tucker Carlson will not be silenced — by the far left or by Fox News," Dillon tweeted.

Technically, Carlson is still under contract with Fox News, which prompted the outlet to take early legal action against him.

Carlson doesn't appear to be phased, whatsoever, by the threat, and hasn't shown any signs of stopping his mega-popular new show.

Dillon responds

Dillon went further in responding to questions asked by fans as to why she's no longer appearing on Fox News. Her answer spelled out, in crystal clear terms, that she has no interest in appearances on the network as long as they continue to attempt to silence Carlson -- and others.

"For all the friends who have been asking “why don’t we see you on Fox anymore?” — This is why. I am passionately committed to free speech and a free flow of information necessary for a free society. Until Fox stops trying to silence Tucker, it’s not a place for me. And I feel for my friends working at the network which has clearly caved into pressure from some quarter to silence @TuckerCarlson," Dillon tweeted.

She added: "What you are seeing on Fox today is a censored version of the news. Keep that in mind as you make your viewing and your commenting choices."

It'll be interesting to see what next steps Fox takes, if any, to silence its former star. Only time will tell.
