Tucker Carlson, a well-known former Fox News anchor, has recently posted a video on Twitter criticizing the mainstream media and vowing to keep his previous “show” going on the platform.
Carlson believes that Twitter is the only major platform that allows freedom of speech. He released the video on Tuesday with the message “We’re back” and shared his thoughts on the current state of the American media.
Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host, released a video on Tuesday in which he criticized the mainstream media and accused them of lying. “At the most basic level, the news you consume is a lie,” Carlson said, while also acknowledging that it is “true in the literal sense.” He then provided a hypothetical example to illustrate his point, claiming that the media might report that a suspect was “unjustly” arrested for armed robbery. However, if they fail to mention that the same suspect had previously been arrested for armed robbery six times, the recent arrest suddenly lacks context.
“Facts have been withheld on purpose,” Carlson said, “along with proportion and perspective.”
Tucker Carlson has released a new video criticizing the mainstream media, claiming that “you are being manipulated.” According to Carlson, the news is often a lie, with facts being withheld on purpose and perspective and proportion ignored.
He further stated that every journalist in the news business understands that there are limits to what truths can be told, and those who defy these limits will be fired.
Carlson referred to the mainstream media’s “rule of what you can’t say,” which he believes is “filthy” and “utterly corrupting.”
Fox News stated on April 24 that Carlson “agreed to part ways,” but many have speculated that he was blindsided by the ousting. Since then, reports indicate that the network’s viewership has suffered. However, Carlson assured fans of his former show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” that he plans to offer “a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years.”
