Tucker Carlson wasted no time establishing a new home, pivoting to digital media instead of embarking on another television venture. In May 2023, he launched a watered-down version of his Fox show on X. “There are not that many platforms left that allow free speech. The last big one remaining is Twitter [now X], where we are now,” Carlson said in his announcement on the platform. Surprisingly, he also alluded to his firing then, insinuating that “telling the truth” was what ultimately got him axed. “The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can. But there are always limits,” he continued. “And you know that if you bump up against those limits often enough, you will be fired for it.”

But by the time the first episode of “Tucker on Twitter” hit the internet, Fox had reportedly sent Carlson a cease-and-desist letter, noting that the host’s actions breached his contract with them, which remains in effect until early 2025 and stipulates exclusivity to Fox, as reported by The New York Times.

Carlson’s legal team was quick to counter the claims, pointing out that his online show is not in direct competition with any of Fox’s news programs. His attorney, Harmeet Dhillon, even said that Fox is unjustly trying to de-platform Carlson. “Doubling down on the most catastrophic programming decision in the history of the cable news industry, Fox is now demanding that Tucker Carlson be silent until after the 2024 election,” she said. “Tucker will not be silenced by anyone.”
