The longtime host of a popular cable news show, Tucker Carlson was fired after the Dominion Voting machines defamation trial.

The letter, shared to Bet-David's Twitter page, says, "We want you to partner with us in what we feel is a noble and necessary effort to define the future of media. Our convictions about freedom, liberty, and truth run deep and we believe we are the absolute right fit for you and America."

Whether Carlson will entertain the offer from Valuetainment or not remains to be seen. Given his star power among conservatives, many believe he may start his own platform or receive multiple competing offers from conservative-leaning media companies.
