Author Chadwick Moore, who was a frequent guest on Tucker Carlson’s show, released a video Monday promoting his biography of Carlson that’s slated to be released July 18. In the video Moore states that Carlson’s planned monologue on April 24, the day Fox abruptly “parted ways” with its star host, was indeed related to “investigations around January 6th and particularly Ray Epps,” and efforts to silence Tucker, and that Tucker’s firing was indeed a condition demanded by Dominion Voting Systems as part of their massive pre-trial settlement with Fox.
While there have been numerous reports on both of these topics – and in a letter from his counsel to Fox News, Carlson himself claims that his firing was a condition of the Dominion settlement – the fact that Carlson quote-tweeted Moore’s video with a wide-eyed emoji seems to be an additional confirmation of that, and a confirmation of his planned monologue topic.

I’m the author of a new biography about Tucker Carlson, titled Tucker. I have spent the last year writing and researching this book, and during that time I’ve gotten to know Tucker, his family, his friends, and his staff, very well. In fact, I’ve gotten to know Tucker, the person, not the caricature that his enemies try to portray. I was working closely with Tucker when he was taken off the air by Fox, and, as some of you know, I was also a regular on his show and I happened to be a guest on the final episode of the show, which was on April 21st.
I’ve also seen the monologue that Tucker planned to deliver on Monday, April 24th, before his show was abruptly taken off the air. That monologue dealt with, among other things, investigations around January 6th and particularly Ray Epps, the only person captured on video inciting people to violence at the capitol that day and allegedly an FBI informant who still has not been arrested or charged. Ironically, a good part of the monologue also dealt with the people and forces that are trying to silence him, like AOC and others in government.
It has now been reported that his firing was a condition demanded by Dominion as part of the settlement with Fox. Although Dominion has denied this, my sources have intimate knowledge of the situation and they have assured me, even before this news leaked, that that is, in fact, the truth. If that is true it would mean that a small group of people who have a controlling interest in Dominion have managed to silence what is arguably the most important and influential conservative voice in the country, possibly until after the next presidential election.
Knowing Tucker as I do, I am confident that he will not be silenced, as I’m sure all of you are as well.
In addition to Carlson’s claim regarding Dominion in the letter from his attorneys, Project Veritas released a video in which a producer for Hannity stated that Tucker’s firing was a demand by Dominion in the settlement. Still, it’s stunning that in addition to the massive financial hit Fox took in the settlement itself, which has reportedly already led to the network dismantling its investigative unit, network brass would be okay with axing the man whose show pays a lot of the bills over there. Executives had to have known what a massive blow getting rid of Tucker would be to their bottom line, and if they didn’t, well, they’re in the wrong line of work.
Given that Moore was working so closely with Carlson and Carlson’s associates at the time all of this went down, his account is the most believable to date. Without being privy to whatever contracts or legal arrangements in place for this biography, if Moore was present when various communications took place with Fox staff, it would seem that he could write about those events in the book without being subject to the same legal restraints Carlson might currently be under – and if those details are in the book, its release will put Fox in a terrible position in their ongoing negotiations with Carlson. Which is exactly where they deserve to be.
