Fresh off his Alabama stop last week, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has announced a new home for his show.
In a three-minute video published on his Twitter account, Carlson, who was abruptly fired from Fox News in April, criticized the mainstream media for constantly "misleading" viewers and being "gatekeepers."
“Amazingly, as of tonight, there aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech," Carlson stated. "The last big one remaining in the world, the only one, is Twitter, where we are now. Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site. Everybody’s allowed here, and we think that’s a good thing.”
“Starting soon, we'll be bringing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for six-and-a-half years to Twitter," he added. "We’ll be bringing some other things, too, which we’ll tell you about. But for now, we’re just grateful to be here. Free speech is the main right that you have. Without it, you have no others."
Twitter CEO Elon Musk clarified that he and Carlson had "not signed a deal of any kind whatsoever" but he hoped "many others, particularly from the left, also choose to be content creators on this platform."
While in Alabama, Carlson heaped praise on Alabama, including the people, the food and its beauty.
"It has everything that I like," he said of the state.
