JUST IN: Tucker Carlson Returns, But Not To Fox News

(Congress Report) – It seems the premature “retirement” of Tucker Carlson is already coming to a speedy end. Which likely doesn’t surprise a single soul in the country, as Carlson, one of the most popular conservative pundits of all time, is a hard working individual who actually believes that America, the truth, is worth fighting for. A person who is sold out to the idea that what they do is important — and in his case that’s absolutely true — will not allow the powers-that-be to silence them.

A report from The Western Journal, penned by Randy DeSoto, revealed that the former Fox News host announced on Tuesday that he would be launching a brand new show based off his previous one with Fox, on social media giant Twitter.

It seems to me that after getting burned by Fox, Tucker has accepted the fact that no matter where he goes, he’s going to have to answer to someone else for the kind of content he creates, and that is seemingly a no-go for him. At this point in his career, he can afford to be that way and thus, it really does make much more sense for him to build a platform of his own.

“There aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech,” Carlson remarked in a video published on his Twitter account. “The last big one remaining in the world, the only one is Twitter, where we are now.”

“Twitter’s not a partisan site. Everyone’s allowed here, and we think that’s a good thing,” he continued.

“When Elon Musk purchased Twitter last fall, he explained that he felt it was vital to democracy to have a place where ideas could be freely exchanged,” DeSoto wrote. “In his video, Carlson stated that while Twitter is an open platform, most of the news sites that post on the site are ‘thinly disguised propaganda outlets.'”

In the video, Carlson declared that his program is aiming to be something different.

“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,” he explained.

“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 if you bump up against those limits often enough you will be fired for it,” Carlson pointed out.

Fox News cut ties with Carlson last month, despite the fact that he was the most watched host on the network, drawing in on average three million viewers.

“Fox did not offer a reason why, but The Los Angeles Times reported, based on unnamed sources, that the decision to fire Carlson came right from Fox Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch. Part of the reason reportedly was that Murdoch was not pleased with Carlson’s coverage of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion, specifically when he questioned what role federal law enforcement agencies may have played that day,” DeSoto noted in the article.

Later in the video, the popular pundit asserted, “You can’t have a free society if people aren’t allowed to say what they think is true. Speech is the fundamental prerequisite for democracy. That’s why it’s enshrined in the first of our constitutional amendments.”

“Free speech is the main right that you have. Without it, you have no others. See you soon,” he said in closing.

The video earned over 7 million views, in just an hour after it was released.
