Fox News Producer Caught Saying Carlson’s Firing Was Part of Dominion Settlement
In undercover footage from O’Keefe Media Group, a Fox News producer was caught admitting that Tucker Carlson was ousted from the network as part of their settlement with Dominion Voting Systems — and also made comments about Fox News being “beholden to advertisers” like “Pfizer.”
In the video, an undercover journalist with former Project Veritas CEO James O’Keefe’s new venture, O’Keefe Media Group, spoke with Fox News at Night producer Sean Langille about Carlson’s ouster just a few weeks ago.
Carlson was unceremoniously let go from Fox News on April 24 with no explanation, though many speculated that it had to do with the lawsuit or Carlson’s refusal to shy away from controversial, yet important topics.
The undercover footage shows Langille admitting that the lawsuit that Fox News settled with Dominion Voting Systems for $744 million was a major part of why Carlson was “ousted.”
“They gave him money, part of it–they say it wasn’t part of it–but we’re learning that Tucker getting fired was part of that,” the Fox News producer said.
“He did things that cost [the company] a lot of money,” Languille added.
These costly actions included Carlson’s bombshell coverage of the truth behind the January 6 Capitol protests, where he shared never-before-seen footage of the events of that day and attempted to expose Ray Epps as an instigator. For that reason, and many others, a substantial number of advertisers had refused to allow their ads to be run during Carlson’s 8 p.m. primetime slot.
Langille also mentioned Big Pharma, telling the undercover journalist that Fox News was “beholden” to their advertisers, and admitting that the company even took money from Pfizer — which would be very taboo to their audience that are skeptical of the COVID vaccine.
“When it’s corporate media you’re beholden to advertisers… we take money from Pfizer,” the Fox News producer revealed.
After the undercover operation, O’Keefe called Langille for comment on the matter — but the Fox News producer denied making the comments about Pfizer, insisting that he did not work in advertising.
In the undercover video, Langille also discussed the fact that former Biden White House employee Michael La Rosa was now employed at a consulting firm that worked for Dominion.
“Someone who worked for the Biden White House was literally crafting the message for Dominion,” Langille said, going on to detail the connections.
“So he left working for Jill Biden to start this PR firm or work for this firm, whose sole client was Dominion, doing their comms,” he added. “It’s like, right from the White House, to go work for Dominion. So it’s like when you know those little moving parts, you’re like ‘everyone’s shady.’ Left the White House to literally go take down the news outlet that was being unfavorable to his boss.”
Carlson himself was very critical of the Biden administration, asking questions that none of the mainstream media — and even many of the other reporters at his own network — dared to ask. With the Biden administration’s connection to Dominion, it is especially concerning that Langille outright stated that the company had a direct hand in Carlson’s firing.
O’Keefe later appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room to discuss the undercover operation.
