An undercover video obtained by OMG News, run by James O'Keefe, shows a Fox insider revealing that Tucker Carlson's dismissal was part of the settlement with Dominion Voting Systems.
Further, the producer says a former White House aide to Joe and Jill Biden orchestrated Dominion's attack on Fox, a network that multiple times had been critical of Biden.

The undercover video was with Sean Langille, a Fox News producer.
The settlement with Dominion involved payment by Fox of some $744 million over statements made on the network about the voting system's operations during the presidential election.
But, Langille said, "We're learning that Tucker getting fired was part of that."
"Yeah, he was ousted," Langille said. "He brought up things that cost us a lot of money. That was part of it."
Besides election issues, Langille said, Carlson "was going after this whole thing about January 6th … It was an inside job. He went after this guy Ray Epps. He said he was an FBI agent on the inside and basically encouraged it. He was going to go on the air and refute what that guy said on '60 Minutes.'
"And the Murdochs were like, not too happy about it. The other thing with Tucker is that is interesting. is everyone's afraid we're losing so many viewers and money. I'm like well actually, there's a bunch of advertisers that said we're not going to advertise that 8 o'clock hour. So now that he's gone, they're starting to come back."
He said it was "crazy" that Fox was reporting on COVID vaccines, and yet was getting advertising money from Pfizer.
And, he pointed out a story that hasn't been reported was that Mike LaRosa, a former press aide for Jill Biden, moved to a PR company whose primary client was Dominion.
So, he suggested, there was a White House influence working against Fox News, which had criticized Biden over and over.
