Fox News host Tucker Carlson is in the middle of a messy battle.
Carlson and conservatives are not liking what they are learning.
And this courtroom bombshell is about to change everything for Tucker Carlson.
Dominion Voting Systems deposed Fox Corp CEO Lachlan Murdoch as part of the company’s $1.6 billion defamation suit against Fox News.
The suit revolves around Fox News airing claims from Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani that the company’s machines altered the vote total to swing the election to Joe Biden.
Fox News maintains they have a First Amendment freedom of the press right to broadcast assertions made by lawyers of the president of the United States.
The top-rated cable news channel also argued that Dominion is conducting an anti-Fox vendetta to try and destroy the network financially and through sullying its reputation.
Fox News argued Dominion released cherry-picked emails and text messages to make Fox look bad and attack the First Amendment.
In a deposition of Fox Corp — the parent company that owns Fox News — CEO Lachlan Murdoch, Dominion’s lawyers appeared to stray far afield from any claims of election fraud.
The Dominion lawyer pressed Lachlan Murdoch on comments Tucker Carlson made more than five years ago about how immigrants make America poorer and dirtier.
Murdoch said it was not his place to manage the editorial content of Fox News since he is not the CEO of the network.
“I think the question is where would it stop? I’m not the CEO of Fox News. I’m not responsible for the editorial on Fox News. I don’t make editorial decisions on Fox News. For me to criticize or to endorse or even talk about a newspaper article or a Fox News opinion piece, I think it becomes very challenging. And I think it’s ultimately — ultimately the wrong thing – the wrong thing to do,” Murdoch answered.
The lawyer then asked Murdoch if he ever took concerns about what Carlson said to Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott.
“Do you think it was an inappropriate comment that she should have handled in some way?” Dominion’s attorney asked Murdoch.
Murdoch then threw Carlson under the bus saying his family immigrated to the United States and that he was a strong supporter of immigration.
“I don’t think the wording — I’m just trying to think back a few years now. So I think the insinuation is absolutely wrong. I don’t think immigrants make the country poorer or more dirty. I actually think they make the country richer and are very important in the American fabric of life. So I’m very pro-immigrant,” Murdoch continued.
“I think that — and I’m trying to recall Mr. Carlson’s comments were not exactly as reported, but that the insinuation is the wrong insinuation, which I don’t support,” Murdoch concluded.
Carlson saying immigrants make America poorer and dirtier was the first time CNN and the rest of the pro-censorship forces in the corporate press tried to cancel Carlson.
The corporate media’s glee in covering the Dominion lawsuit is leading critics to argue that parts of this lawsuit are designed to embarrass Fox News and even force the board of directors to step in and fire a top primetime host like Carlson.
