On Sunday, a prominent conservative author and contributing editor announced on Twitter that he has been banned from appearing on any Fox News programs because he wrote a book about the network’s former top-rated host, Tucker Carlson.
“I am no longer permitted on Fox because I penned a book about Tucker Carlson. “I have been banned from the network,” tweeted Chadwick Moore, a contributing editor for The Spectator.
He elaborated in a series of subsequent posts, some of which were in response to queries and comments from other users.
In another tweet, he stated that he had also been “disinvited” from Fox late-night host Greg Gutfeld’s program, where he was scheduled to appear on Wednesday.
“This is FACT: Fox News has a new policy (aside from banning me): they won’t plug any book from a guest unless it was published by HarperCollins. You can’t be a guest on Fox unless you’re a Fox author…it’s all so hilarious and grotesque. Fox News will not let you promote your book unless your book is published by Fox News,” he wrote in another post.
I’m not allowed on Fox anymore, because I wrote a book about @TuckerCarlson. I’ve been banned from the network.

He then added: “Some Fox News people texted me tonight, re: my tweets. They were pissed off and petty. I don’t care. I think I wrote a good book. I’m proud of it.”
In a separate post, Moore responded to a user who questioned whether some of the network’s other talents were “as principled as they always appear to be.”
Moore replied: “They aren’t. I can assure you of that.”
In response to another user who suggested that in times of turmoil, “you sure find out who your friends are and were just pretending to be your friends,” Moore wrote: “Well, I’ve been canceled by liberal corporate media and now I’m canceled by corporate ‘conservative’ media. I think I’ll be fine. I couldn’t care less.”
Moore stated that it was the tweet in which he announced that he had been disinvited from Gutfeld’s program that allegedly prompted some Fox hosts to respond angrily.
Moore claimed in a brief video posted to his account last week that despite denials from Fox and Dominion Voting Systems, Carlson’s dismissal was part of the massive defamation settlement with the company that was reached last month.
For the last year, I've been writing the definitive biography of @TuckerCarlson, based on thorough research and 100+ hours of interviews.
But there's some info that can't wait for July 18: the scoop on why Fox canceled his show.

Last week, Rolling Stone magazine reported the same information in an article.

“In the latest development to come three weeks after Carlson was removed from his role at the network on April 24, it has been reported that one of Fox Corp.’s eight board members was the one to tell the fired host that his ‘recent benching’ was the result of the secret condition in the Dominion settlement,” the outlet noted.
