Controversial Fox News host Tucker Carlson has broken his silence following his sudden firing by the network, hinting that he won’t be gone for long.
In a two-minute video posted on Twitter, Carlson expressed his appreciation for the “kind and decent people” in the country and criticized the mainstream news for the lack of discussion on significant topics.
He went on to say that “debates like that are not permitted in American media,” and that the country is beginning to look like a “one-party state.” Carlson then hinted at his future plans, saying “see you soon.”
The firing of Tucker Carlson by Fox News came as a surprise to many, given that he had been a staple of the network for years.
According to sources, the network refused to pay Carlson severance after his firing, leading the host to hire an attorney to handle negotiations.
Carlson’s comments in his video suggest that he is not planning to stay out of the public eye for long. His criticism of the mainstream media for ignoring significant topics and his suggestion that the country is becoming a one-party state will likely resonate with his conservative audience.
Carlson has been a lightning rod for controversy during his tenure at Fox News, with his comments often sparking outrage and calls for his firing. However, he has also been a ratings powerhouse for the network, and his departure is likely to leave a significant gap.
It remains to be seen where Carlson will land next. Some have speculated that he may start his own media company, given his large following and the growing trend of conservative personalities branching out on their own.
Others have suggested that he may join another network, though it’s unclear which one would be willing to take on his controversial persona.
Whatever his next move may be, it’s clear that Carlson is not going quietly.
His video message suggests that he has no intention of backing down from his controversial viewpoints and that he believes there is a significant audience for them. As the media landscape continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see where Carlson ends up and what impact he has on the conversation.
