Fox News executives have in their possession a dossier of alleged dirt on Tucker Carlson should he attack the network in the wake of his departure, eight sources at and close to the network tell Rolling Stone.
When Fox announced Carlson’s departure on Monday, the network presented the separation as amicable. But according to one former on-air Fox personality, the anchor and some of the channel’s top executives are parting ways on “the worst” and “messiest possible terms.” Indeed, in private communications released last month as part of the Dominion-Fox lawsuit, the now-fired Fox host gossiped that one such exec “hates us,” claiming she was covertly working against him and other hosts.
This is the same tactic that prolific child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein allegedly used to maintain his victims’ silence. It’s also quite common in intelligence operations — which Epstein’s operation likely was, based on his wide-ranging connections to the CIA, Mossad, et al.
While it is unclear how the remaining Fox News talent feels about the network’s tactics, it is likely they are being held to the same standard, which could prevent them from speaking out against their employer.
The network is also allegedly leaking information from the Carlson dossier to Media Matters, a move that could be a betrayal of its hyper-partisan audience.
The parent company of Fox News has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Media Matters over its publication of leaked videos showing Carlson making crude and offensive comments off-air.
