• Fox News Cease and Desist against Tucker Carlson

    This is an interesting case. Normally, a person under contract like Carlson would have no legal basis to go back on the air on a conventional or even streaming TV platform. His non-compete clause would clearly prevent this as long as he continues to be paid by Fox. But in this case, he is trying to compete on Twitter, so I suppose his argument is going to be that Twitter is not a TV platform, so therefore there is no conflict? Anyone know how these non-compete clauses are typically worded in TV contracts?
