Former Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson premiered his newest production on Tuesday.
Dubbed “Tucker on Twitter,” the ten-minute video podcast featured an all-new segment from Carlson discussing media censorship and bias. The video was labeled as “episode one.”

During the episode, Carlson aimed at modern cable news media, saying that the public has been “lied to at full volume over a period of years” in order to believe illegitimate arguments, which he called “hilariously stupid.”
He stated, “The media lie, they do. But mostly they just ignore the stories that matter. What happened to the hundreds of billions of US dollars we sent to Ukraine? No clue. Who organized those BLM riots three years ago? No one‘s gotten to the bottom of that. What exactly happened on 9/11 – well it’s still classified. How did Jeffrey Epstein make all that money? How did he die? How about JFK? And so endlessly on.”
“Not only are the media not interested in any of this – they are actively hostile to anybody who is. In journalism, curiosity is the gravest crime,” Carlson said.
Carlson argued that the reason why the public seems “so dysfunctional,” is because “nobody knows what’s happening.”
“A small group of people control access to all relevant information and the rest of us don’t know,” Carlson added.
“As of today, we’ve come to Twitter which we hope will be the shortwave radio under the blankets. We’re told there are no gatekeepers here. If that turns out to be false, we’ll leave, but in the meantime we’re grateful to be here. We’ll be back with much more, very soon,” the former Fox News host concluded.
Carlson’s video had been viewed 8 million times within two hours of its publishing.
