Tony Podesta threatened to sue Tucker Carlson for reporting things that he didn’t like. However, Tucker Carlson hit him back hard. “Today Tony Podesta resigned as head of his company. His excuse? Us. That’s right. He blamed us. In his parting statement, Podesta said this, quote, ‘It is impossible to run a public affairs firm by Fox News and the right-wing media,’” said Carlson.
“Well, Podesta isn’t just complaining about us — he’s threatening us. This afternoon, we got a letter from Geoff Garinther. Its a lawyer with Venable LLP, a big law firm here in DC. The letter demands that this show, quote, ‘immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta Group,’” said Carlson.
“It demands we retract and delete all our prior reporting on the Podesta Group and warns if we don’t do this, quote, ‘Mr. Podesta may pursue legal action, including for damages, in order to fully protect his rights.’ It doesn’t stop there. It also warns we will face legal action under the Copyright Act merely for quoting from this letter publicly, as we just did,” said Carlson.
“Podesta’s lawyer wasn’t trying to inform us of anything, but to threaten us — to shut down our reporting on his client. One lawyer we talked to earlier today said the Podesta people have used this tactic with others before. It’s common — it’s an effort to use fear to control press coverage,” said Carlson.
“We are not intimidated,” summarized Carlson. The liberal media bullies President Trump and conservatives all the time. But it looks like they can’t take what they dish out. Check out the video below.
