The reason why Tucker Carlson’s program was pulled from the airwaves in late April remains uncertain, but speculation has been rampant. Tucker has no trouble making his viewpoint heard, despite the fact that he does not appear on the massive Fox News network.

According to a report published at the beginning of May, a new network was interested in signing him and giving him unlimited creative control.
According to TMZ, Newsmax wants to grant Carlson his own primetime show and give him control over the entire channel’s schedule. Carlson would then have a great deal of authority, including the ability to select future series to air on the network.
“Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … the news channel is doing everything it can to sweeten the deal for Tucker to come on board — including floating the idea of letting him program the whole channel, not just his own show. That would be a pretty enticing deal point … in addition to having his own primetime show, Tucker would have a say over what shows lead into and out of his show, which can be key in achieving bigger TV ratings,” according to TMZ.
While that agreement may be in the works, new details about Tucker’s departure from Fox have just been revealed.
James O’Keefe, the originator of Project Veritas, obtained the information through his new media outlet, O’Keefe Media Group, also known as OMG (Get it? OMG? Tucker was terminated as a result of a litigation settlement with Dominion (excellent branding there!), it was reported.
Monday, O’Keefe Media Group released an undercover video of a FOX Insider discussing the termination of Tucker Carlson.
Sean Langille, producer of FOX News at Night, informed undercover reporters that the Dominion settlement stipulated Tucker’s dismissal.
Here is a portion of the video’s transcript:
Sean Langille: $744 million to settle that.
Reporter: Oh, that was with the Dominion Company. What happened with that?
Sean Langille: Like, they gave him money. They say it wasn’t part of it, but we’re learning that Tucker getting fired part of that.
Reporter: Tucker getting fired was part of the Dominion lawsuit?
Sean Langille: Part of the settlement. Yeah, he’s ousted… And we got money from Pfizer… He (Tucker) brought up things that cost a lot of money. Cost the company a lot of money. This whole thing about January, it was an inside job. FBI agent on the inside encouraged it.
“O’Keefe, who recently separated from Project Veritas, has built a reputation for executing undercover sting operations with sources who believe they are speaking confidentially while on dates or out with associates,” according to Trending Politics News.
In the video, a “undercover journalist” speaks in passing about the issues and allows Langille to fill in the details, such as when he claimed that the network is “beholden to advertisers” such as Pfizer, which manufactures the Covid-19 vaccine. Langille implied that “Big Pharma” was dissatisfied with Carlson’s criticism of its products and exerted pressure on the network’s leadership to fire their primetime presenter.
Throughout the video, Langille details other actors who played a role in Carlson’s firing such as Mike LaRosa at Dominion who is “crafting Dominion’s message to the public,” and a “bunch of advertisers” who boycotted Carlson’s 8 p.m. hour but returned after he left the network. LaRosa, the former press secretary for First Lady Jill Biden, launched his own consulting firm in 2022 with his “sole client” being Dominion, Langille claims. He “left the White House to literally go take down the network that was being unfavorable to his boss,” Langille added in the video.
Tucker is a darling of conservatives, libertarians, and independents with a lean to the right because he speaks truth to power.
