In Dominion Voting Systems’ ongoing defamation lawsuit against FOX News, Tucker Carlson’s private email and text messages were publicly leaked.
Carlson reportedly wrote “I hate him (Trump) passionately” in one of the text messages.
“We are very very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights; I truly can’t wait,” Carlson reportedly wrote on January 4, 2021.

The FOX News host said in an interview Tuesday that he’s angry his private messages to co-workers were made public.
“And I think this is in the text, and those were all grabbed completely illegitimately, in my opinion um in this court case, which I guess I’m not allowed to talk about, but I’m enraged that my private texts were pulled,” Carlson said on WABC Radio.
In the interview, Carlson backtracked on his comments about President Trump.
“I love Trump,” Carlson said.

From The Hill:
However, Carlson sought to cast the president in a different light during the radio interview this week.
“Oh, let’s see. I spent four years defending his policies and I, I’m going to defend them again tonight,” Carlson said. “And actually, and I’m pretty straight forward, I’m um I love Trump. Like, as a person, I think Trump is funny and insightful.”
“And I said this to Trump when he called me, you know, all wounded about those texts,” he continued. “That was a moment in time where I was absolutely infuriated.”
Fox has argued the text messages between its employees brought to light in the various filings have been “cherry picked” by Dominion to drum up media coverage of the case and it has so far unsuccessfully moved to have the case dismissed on First Amendment grounds.
The hosts comment’s come the same day a judge in Delaware is set to rule on summary judgement ahead of an expected jury trial next month.
