Attorney for Producer Suing Tucker Carlson, Fox News Makes Critical Admission

Abby Grossberg filed a lawsuit against Fox Corporation last month, naming Tucker Carlson as a defendant claiming that he created a toxic work environment.

But in court, her lawyer admitted that she had never even met Carlson. Carlson did not record his shows at the Fox studios. He recorded in his private studios in Maine and Florida. Foc claims that she filed the lawsuit just as she was about to be canned by the network.

In fact, most of the people who worked on the show never met Carlson and Grossberg is saying that Carlson is responsible for the toxic work environment because of his communications with Justin Wells, his executive producer, and others like Alexander McCaskill, senior producer, who acted as Carlson’s eyes and ears and who would convey Carlson’s “tone.”

How does she know this? Did she tap their phones or did the pair record the calls and give Grossberg copies? One is more ridiculous than the other and I am not sure which one is the most ludicrous.

Attorney Kimberly Catala told the Spectator:

“Like many on the [“Tucker Carlson Tonight”] staff, Abby never met Tucker Carlson in person because he taped the show from his personal studios in Maine and Florida, and he did not visit Fox’s NY HQ during her time there.” 

“Since Tucker did not come to the Fox office, he relied on Justin Wells, his executive producer, and others like Alexander McCaskill, senior producer, who were present in the office every day to be his eyes, ears and mouthpiece, and to convey his ‘tone,’ as they threateningly reminded Ms. Grossberg.”

From The Blaze

The suit alleges that Carlson and his production team subjected Grossberg, who worked as the head booker for Carlson’s show beginning in July 2022, “to a toxic work environment that is hostile to women like her.”

That work environment, according to the lawsuit, “subjugates women based on vile sexist stereotypes, typecasts religious minorities and belittles their traditions, and demonstrates little to no regard for those suffering from mental illness.”

How, then, can Carlson be guilty of the conduct that Grossberg’s lawsuit alleges? According to Catala, it is because Carlson cultivated a “sexist” workplace using his top staffers as his “eyes” and “ears.”

Her attorneys confirmed on Wednesday that Grossberg never met Carlson in person because he taped his 8 p.m. show from remote studios, an admission that will likely complicate efforts to prove the claims made against Carlson.

Catala further explained that Grossberg and Carlson maintained daily contact via phone and email.

Fox News fired Grossberg after she filed the lawsuit. The network has not yet filed an official response to the lawsuit, but has denied Grossberg’s allegations.

“We will continue to vigorously defend Fox against Ms. Grossberg’s unmeritorious legal claims, which are riddled with false allegations against Fox and our employees,” Fox News told the New York Times in a statement.

  1. Fox management doesn’t seem to have had a credible reason to dismiss Carlson. PROBABLY THE BIGGEST TRAGEY OF THE MEDIA INDUSTRY.

  2. The plot thickens! Mr.Murdock simply didn’t want the fight. His settlement needed sacrificial lamb. Mr. Carlson fit the bill. It appears much more was done behind the scenes. The pressure the present administration put on Fox was enormous. We are witnessing the decline of Fox and the rise of News-Max. I would not be surprised if
    “Tucker” cuts a deal w News-Max. His voice, research and guts are needed for the
    conservative movement. What ever Mr. Carlson does in the future will be relevant to us all.

  3. Unfortunately, this is what we have become in a warped American society. Depending on where you file a lawsuit will have an impact on whether it is thrown out or pushed up the ladder. Socialism at its best.
