Abbott Questions Whether Carlson ‘Silencing’ Was Dominion Demand In Settlement With Fox

Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson was no long hosting his primetime show after the cable network settled a defamation suit with Dominion Voting System, reportedly, at least in part, because guests on his show suggested the company’s voting machines helped “rig” the 2020 presidential election.
Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott this weekend bashed Dominion over Carlson’s departure, reportedly as part of the settlement.
Abbott said if the reporting was true, then he is “happy that Dominion does not operate in Texas.”

“We may disagree with other’s positions, but we should never try to improperly silence views contrary to our own,” Abbott tweeted Saturday. “If Dominion wants to do business with Texas in the future, they should first answer questions about what role, if any, they played in silencing a prominent conservative journalist.”
