Ex Fox News host Tucker Carlson announces new show on Twitter

Tucker Carlson has announced he will be launching a new show on Twitter. 

The popular American host and political commentator says he will be “bringing a new version of the show” he’s been doing for the past six and a half years to the platform. 

 

After he was fired from his position at Fox News recently Carlson hit out at the mainstream media and accused it of framing information in a way that does not relate matters in a factual, unbiased manner.

“The undeniably big topics,” which he said “will define our future” get “virtually no discussion at all,”

He also previously blasted the media for focusing on issues which he said were “completely irrelevant” and meant “nothing”. 

Speaking about the launch of his new show on Twitter, Carlson said that the platform, owned by billionaire Elon Musk, “has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops,” 

“Twitter is not a partisan site”, everyone is allowed here,” he said adding, “that’s a good thing” 

He continued saying “And yet, for the most part, the news that you see analysed on Twitter comes from media organisations that are themselves thinly disguised propaganda outlets.”

Speaking about censorship in media Carlson spoke of how ‘anyone’ working in the media in English speaking countries ‘knows’ that there is a line that may not be crossed unless the journalist is willing to pay with their career. 

“Free speech is the main right that you have,” he said adding, “without it you have no others,” 

Yesterday Musk shared a video announcement about the new show saying that he wanted “to be clear that we have not signed a deal of any kind whatsoever.”

 

 

And that, “Tucker is subject to the same rules & rewards of all content creators.”

He said that on Twitter “unlike the one-way street of broadcast, people are able to interact, critique and refute whatever is said.”

No date has been announced for the launch of the show.
