Tucker Carlson isn’t letting a little thing like getting canned from Fox News get him down.
The former Fox News megastar is taking his show to one of the most unlikely of places: Twitter.
On Tuesday, Mr. Carlson — the top-ranked cable TV host — posted a video to Twitter with the caption “We’re back.”
In the video, Tucker announced the big news: He is taking his show to social media.
Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site. Everybody is allowed here. And we think that is a good thing.Tucker Carlson
My dad is going to be so happy.
He is a Tucker Carlson die-hard, and we haven’t heard the end of it since Mr. Carlson was let go by Fox News.
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. It could pass one of the media’s own “fact checks.” — But, that doesn’t make it true. It’s not true.Tucker Carlson
How is it possible that Tucker Carlson is taking his show to Twitter? I’m sure he signed a “non-compete” clause with Fox News.
Yep. It’s true. But, Tucker straight-up doesn’t care.
According to Dylan Byers, Tucker Carlson is forgoing “at least $25 million owed to him by Fox Corp. in order to break non-compete clause.”
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 portion and perspective. You are being manipulated.Tucker Carlson
There have been rumors that Tucker might be discussing working with Elon Musk.
While this is kind of true, Elon is quick to clarify the situation.
I also want to be clear that we have not signed a deal of any kind whatsoever. Tucker is subject to the same rules & rewards of all content creators.Elon Musk
