“I was surprised. I didn’t you know expect to get fired that morning at all in April. So, I was shocked, but I wasn’t really shocked. And I wasn’t mad. It’s not my company. And when you work for someone else, that person reserves the right and in fact has inherently the right to decide whether you work there or not.”

While he wishes Fox well, tensions between the parties have arisen over contract disputes and his new Twitter show. The interview covered various topics, including Carlson’s newfound support for Donald Trump, rural life, architecture, and his views on the January 6 Capitol attack. When discussing his departure from Fox and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Carlson shared conflicting opinions, acknowledging the network’s past support while speculating that criticism of the war may have played a role in his exit.

Additionally, Carlson faced a lawsuit from a former producer regarding a “toxic workplace culture,” settled for $12 million. The dispute extended to his contract, non-compete agreement, leaked behind-the-scenes footage, and allegations of leaked private communications.

While Carlson partially disagreed with the suggestion of Fox’s involvement in the leaks, the network refrained from commenting on his remarks.
