(Congress Report) – Tucker Carlson, former Fox News host, came out and made his first public comments since the news network he called home for years terminated their contract with him out of the blue, going on to criticize the “people in charge” that are currently sitting in our nation’s capital. You know, this is going to go down in history as one of the biggest media mistakes ever made by a network. What kind of business sense does it make to fire someone like Carlson, who was the biggest ratings draw not only for Fox News, but out of any primetime cable news show? They literally took money, stuck it in the toilet, and flushed it down the drain.
According to Katherine Donlevy, a writer for the New York Post, Carlson published a video on his Twitter account where he leveled accusations against various political leaders on both sides of the spectrum for attempting to silence certain voices and shutting down news outlets that are revealing corruption and the truth about what is happening in our country behind the scenes.
“You notice when you take a little time off how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are. They’re completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years, we won’t even remember that we have them. Trust me as someone who’s participated,” Carlson asserted in the video.
“Yet at the same time — and this is the amazing thing — the undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all: war, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources. What was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues?” he went on to ask. “It’s been a long time.”

The popular conservative pundit added, “Debates like that are not permitted in American media. Both political parties and their donors have reached a consensus on what benefits them and they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it. Suddenly, the United States looks very much like a one-party state.”
Carlson, who has a well deserved reputation for being a firebrand who consistently roasts progressive policies and the censorship of political opposition, did not talk about the firing from Fox News during the video.
This is a journalist who was pulling in, on average, 3.2 million viewers, which is the largest viewing audience in cable news among viewers in the 25 to 45 demographic, which is highly coveted by advertisers.
Carlson went on to offer up a warning that our country’s “brain-dead” orthodoxies would soon come to a quick demise, leading political leaders to crumble and give in to fears over a loss of control.
“The people in charge know this. That’s why they’re hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion. They’re resorting to force, but it won’t work,” Carlson remarked.
“When honest people say what’s true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink, they become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe. True things prevail,” the pundit stated.
Carlson then said, “Where can you still find Americans saying true things? There aren’t many places left but there are some and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope. See you soon.”
A report by Tom Tillison of BizPac Review noted that Carlson’s first weeknight dinner date with his wife, Susan, in seven years, was interrupted on Tuesday evening by British journalists working for the Daily Mail, who asked him a series of questions concerning his ousting from Fox News.

“Retirement is going great so far,” a very calm, relaxed Carlson declared. “I haven’t eaten dinner with my wife on a weeknight in seven years.”
When reporters asked him what’s coming down the pike for him now that he’s out at Fox, all he did was smile and reply, “Appetizers plus entrée.”

Good luck Carlson. Hope to see you soon
Fox News is off our channel after you left the only one that really tell the truth. News is garbage anymore. That’s why we started watching Fox News since you started. You have been slipping to the democratic side, Tuker was the only one who saw it coming. I believe we lost our beautiful country. Hannity don’t have the balls to stand up to Fox News. We don’t watch him any more. We think Laura will hang up with you. THANKS FOR NOT STANDING TALL AND FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY. WHEN THEY TURN OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY INTO A 3’RD WORLD COUNTRY. I HOPE YOUR YOUNG ENOUGH TO LIVE LIKE THE COUNTRY’S AROUND YOU. YOU HAVE NO MORE RIGHTS, NO MORE FREEDOM. THEN MAYBE YOU WILL CRY FOR YOUR COUNTRY, BECAUSE WE HAVE ALREADY LOST IT.
Well said. The corrupt Murdoch family are all Socialists… they’re looking to sell Fox, and get rid of anything (people), which could hamper the sale. Not to worry…Paul “RINO” Ryan (a NEVER TRUMPER) will continue with a new company takes Fox. Hearing Maria Bartoromo or Judge Jenine Perro may be next in the chopping block.
Tucker, you can’t stay idle. Someone will offer you a job and you need to take it. You’re too young at 54 to quit doing what you do best now. Just let me know where you end up so that I can tune in to watch you every night like I have done for such a long time. God bless and good luck to you.
I can’t believe Fox News did this to this incredible Men, he is amazing, honest and always looking for bring out the truth. I everyday looked forward to watch you Tucker. You are the only one that was not afraid to look for the truth and bring it to the American 🇺🇸 People. Thank you so much , I have learned so much from you. Thank you , I pray for you and your family, I know you will come back stronger, God Bless .
Firing or worse of anyone who points out the shortcomings of the party in charge is what DICTATORS do. Who is our dictator? This is enough ammunition for the GOP to rally and take back our country in 2024. Freedom will be lost by those who refuse to take action to save it.
This really makes me question Fox News, many of my conservative friends have moved on even before the tucker situation so I will definitely be looking to see where he lands and leaving Fox what a foolish move you have made.
I left Fox News when you left Tucker. Happy to hear Fox audience down.
Wish you all the best Tucker!
