According to Business Insider, we now we have confirmation that Carlson had in fact been meeting with Musk (to possibly launch the X News platform?):
Tucker Carlson has had at least one conversation with Elon Musk about working together, according to a new report from Axios.
However, the former Fox News commentator and billionaire Twitter and Tesla CEO reportedly did not discuss the specifics of what such an arrangement could look like, per Axios.
Rumblings of their discussion comes as Axios further reports that Carlson is teaming with allies to break his Fox contract, which currently runs through 2025 and prevents him from working with other outlets. Carlson and recently-fired CNN anchor Don Lemon have both retained the same lawyer, Bryan Freedman, to settle disputes with their former employers.
The kabuki theater keeps on kabuki’ing on.
Do NOT comply.
