Fox News is trying to sideline former Tucker Carlson Tonight host Tucker Carlson through the 2024 election, multiple sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News.

Carlson’s current contract runs through December 2024, and as of now three sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that executives at the network are trying to keep Carlson on contract and not release him until after the 2024 election. The shocking decision to cancel Carlson’s top-rated weeknight program came just days after the network shut down its top-rated weekend program with host Dan Bongino. What follows here is an insider account from people actually in the know after Breitbart News spent the past several days interviewing key players in the personnel matters at Fox News, asking what really happened.

Two things are clear from speaking to people who actually know what’s happening on the inside: First, the official narrative from the network is untrue. Second, and perhaps more importantly, many of the leaks and speculation that have poured out in the past couple days since the bombshell news of Carlson’s show getting canceled was announced are also simply untrue.:snip:

A source intricately familiar with Bongino’s contract negotiations told Breitbart News that for months Fox News tried to get him to re-up his current deal. Negotiations were failing for a long time because Bongino did not like doing the show on Saturdays, and did not like working six days a week. While Bongino had his battles with Fox News management over a number of things—them editing his interview with Trump, for instance, was a sore spot—he got along well with everyone there and just was not sure he wanted to take Fox News up on the offer to renew the show due to the scheduling problems.

Thing is The Media/Entertainment landscape is changing...Rapidly (examples on request). You no longer Need a NY Times, ABC News, Warner Brothers to tell the story you want to tell.

A few days after that, on Monday morning of this week, Fox News cut Carlson and the picture came much more into focus as to what exactly was going on.

Bongino and Carlson, one source said, “were considered the two most likely to say* ‘BLEEP you’ to management,” a network insider said, adding that Bongino “gave zero[* BLEEPS, and Tucker gave even less * BLEEPS.”

* Edited by me.

I was just thinking he same thing. Take care of you family, Start your own show or go on Tim Pools, Dave Rubin's shoe Newsmax and Dare Rupert to sue you. You want to talk about Bad Press, Bad Ratings.

But this is just me.
