Tucker Carlson Breaks Silence After Fox News Firing


Tucker Carlson has broken his silence since Monday’s surprise announcement that he was fired from Fox News.

In a video over two minutes long posted to his Twitter, the former host of Tucker Carlson tonight began by saying that “stepping out of the noise for a few days” has shown him “how many genuinely nice people there are in this country”.

“Friendly and decent people, people who really care about what’s true and a bunch of hilarious people too — lots of them,” he said. “It must be the majority of the population, even now. So that’s heartwarming.”

Carlson also said he had noticed how “incredibly stupid” most televised debates are. He went on to say they are irrelevant and mean nothing, pointing out that in five years people will not even remember seeing those debates.

“Believe me, as someone who has participated. And yet, at the same time – and this is the amazing thing – the undeniably big topics, the ones that will shape our future, get virtually no discussion at all,” he added. “War, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, power of the business, natural resources – when was the last time you heard a legitimate debate on any of these issues? It’s been a long time.”

Carlson continued, “Such debates are not allowed in American media. Both political parties and their donors have agreed on what benefits them, and they are actively working together to stop any talk about it. Suddenly the United States looks very much like a one-party state. That’s a depressing realization. But it’s not permanent.”

The former Fox News political commentator said he doesn’t think those orthodoxies will last because no one believes them and no one’s life is improved by them. He explained that the “executives” are aware of this and that is why they are “hysterical and aggressive”.

“They’re scared,” Carlson said. “They’ve given up persuasion. They resort to violence, but it won’t work. When honest people say what is true calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who have tried to silence them are shrinking. They’re getting weaker. That is the iron law of the universe. True things prevail.”

Fox News announced it had agreed to part ways with Carlson and thanked him for his services on Monday. The decision came seemingly out of the blue, with his program often ranking as the most watched on the network and of all cable television on some days.

As Fox finds a replacement for Carlson, a rotating roster of guest hosts will fill in on a new show called Fox News tonight.
