You can’t keep Tucker Carlson down.
The recently ousted primetime Fox News star is wasting no time and has revealed his show will continue airing on Twitter from now on.
Carlson tweeted a short video breaking the news about where his program will air.
“You often hear people say the news is full of lies. But most of the time that’s not exactly right. Much of what you see on television or read in the New York Times is in fact true in the literal sense,” Carlson said.
“But that doesn’t make it true. It’s not true. At the most basic level, the news you consume is a lie. A lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. Facts have been withheld on purpose along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated,” Carlson stated.
“After more than 30 years in the middle of it, we could tell you stories. The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can. But there are always limits. And you know that if you bump up against those limits often enough, you will be fired for it,” Carlson continued.
“Amazingly, as of tonight, there aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech. The last big one remaining in the world, the only one, is Twitter, where we are now. Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site, everybody’s allowed here, and we think that’s a good thing,”
And yet for the most part the news you see analyzed on Twitter comes from media organizations that are themselves thinky disguised propaganda outlets. You see it on cable news, you talk about it on Twitter. The result may feel like a debate but actually the gatekeepers are still in charge. We think that’s a bad system,”
“Starting soon we’ll be bringing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter.”
Carlson concluded by teasing “some other things” and emphasizing the importance of free speech.
Recently, Great American News Desk reported that Carlson was in talks with Elon Musk regarding a new business venture, it’s unclear if Carlson has secured an exclusive agreement with Twitter. (RELATED: Tucker Carlson Quietly Preparing for ‘War’ Against Fox News)
