Wendy Rogers Responds after Fox News Accuses Tucker Carlson of Contract Breach: ‘You Have Lost on All Levels’

Arizona GOP State Senator Wendy Rogers reacted in a pair of tweets to the news that Fox News has accused its former star host Tucker Carlson of a breach of contract.

The first response was made early this morning when the news first broke. In response to a tweet from Rogan O’Handley, Rogers said that “Being sued is Tucker’s badge of honor and evidence of his 100% credibility.”

O’Handley shared an article from Axios announcing the news and said, “BREAKING: Fox News plans to sue Tucker Carlson after his 1st video on Twitter went viral.”

“They claim it’s a breach of contract. Maybe we boycott Fox News until they stop trying to silence one of the biggest voices before the 2024 election? FREE SPEECH”

After a report that Carlson’s lawyer has responded to the accusations, Rogers then tweeted a “translation” of his response.

“If Twitter hadn’t become so dominant & widespread, Fox couldn’t have cared less. But now that Freedom of Speech has explosively shifted landscapes, Fox wants to redefine terms & move the goalposts,” Rogers explained.

Rogers added, “Sorry Fox. You have LOST on ALL LEVELS.”

Carlson’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, echoed the words of O’Handley in a statement where he said that any legal action by Fox News would infringe on Carlson’s First Amendment rights.

“Fox defends its very existence on freedom of speech grounds. Now they want to take Tucker Carlson’s right to speak freely away from him because he took to social media to share his thoughts on current events,” Freedman lamented.

While Carlson said that the videos he plans to release will be a new version of his show, it is not clear if he is getting any monetary gain from it at this point. The inaugural episode has racked up nearly 106 million views so far on Twitter.
