Former Fox News, Tucker Carlson has accused the US authorities and politicians from both of the two largest American parties of concealing important issues related to the country’s future.
On Wednesday, Carlson posted a video on his Twitter, in which he said that the American media pays great attention to discussing meaningless and irrelevant issues.
“At the same time, you don’t discuss the absolutely important issues that will define our future, such as war, civil liberties, new science trends, demographic changes, corporate power and natural resources,” Carlson said.
He emphasized that “discussing these issues is forbidden in the American media”.
He added, “Both political parties and their financiers reached an agreement about what is beneficial for them and agreed to prevent discussing these issues,” indicating that in this case the impression is formed that the United States is “a one-party state”.
He continued, “It’s sad, but it won’t always be this way,” stressing that the truth will prevail.
Last Monday, Fox News announced firing Tucker Carlson, expressing its thanks to him for his service to the network as a host, and before that as a contributor, noting that the last episode of his program was on Friday.
Although Fox News didn’t provide an explanation for what happened, and Carlson refused to comment on the matter, an informed source told CNN that the decision to fire him was taken on Friday evening, by the CEO of Fox, Lachlan Murdoch, and the president. Fox News executive Susan Scott.
Carlson has a bad reputation in the United States, due to his views, which have been described as racist, especially in light of his conspiracy theories.
Nevertheless, during his time as a prime-time anchor on Fox News, Carlson became one of the most influential figures within the Republican Party.
Republican lawmakers were eager to impress Carlson, and former President Donald Trump agreed to give him a first interview earlier this month, after his indictment in New York.
Carlson has propelled himself to superstardom in recent years by being a major promoter of conspiracy theories and radical rhetoric.
Not only did the man repeatedly sow doubts about the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election, but he also promoted conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines and the attack on the Capitol.
