Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson started his new show via Twitter called “Tucker on Twitter” where he criticizes the U.S. media for being “actively hostile” to any journalist who does not follow official narratives.
“But for the most part they just ignore the stories that matter. What happened to the hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars sent to Ukraine? No clue,” Carlson said:
“What exactly happened on 9/11? However, it is still classified. How did Jeffrey Epstein make all that money? How did he die? What about JFK? And on and on ad infinitum,” the host asked his audience on Twitter.
“Not only is the media not interested in any of this, they are actively hostile to anyone who is. In journalism, curiosity is the gravest crime,” Carlson added:
Carlson also began a brief history lesson, in which he explained how Russian citizens under Soviet rule in the 1970s “had a completely distorted understanding of the United States” because of information that had been manipulated.

While Carlson pointed out that Russians who knew the truth about America was because they could listen to shortwave radio broadcasts, “sometimes under the covers, so the neighbors wouldn’t hear them” the former Fox News anchor commented.
“Fifty years later, it is disconcerting to consider the ironies here: it is we who live in ignorance now. The U.S. government has managed to classify more than a billion so-called public documents,” he added.
“So, at this point we are not allowed to know what our leaders are doing. We are not allowed to know. By definition, that’s not a democracy,” Carlson continued.
“That’s the program. That’s how most of us live here in the United States now,” he concluded in the first episode of the program that lasted just over ten minutes.
Tucker Carlson parted ways with Fox News after the network announced the change on April 24 of this year, bidding farewell to one of the channel’s most watched anchors.
The move came days after Fox settled a defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems, in which they had to pay $787.5 million dollars, where messages from Tucker Carlson and other personalities were revealed after the 2020 elections.
