Tucker Carlson said that he is planning to relaunch his show on Twitter.
He said that the new show would be “starting soon,” but gave no exact date for the launch.
In a message posted on Tuesday, Carlson said, “Amazingly, as of tonight, there aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech. The last big one remaining in the world, the only one, is Twitter.”
Carlson announced the new show in a post in which he bashed the news media without directly naming Fox News, which made the bombshell announcement two weeks ago that they had parted ways with the host.

In his Twitter video, Carlson told viewers that “at the most basic level the news you consume is a lie, a lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. Facts have been withheld on purpose, along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated.”
He added, “What’s it like to work in a system like that? After more than 30 years in the middle of it, we could tell you stories. The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can, but there are always limits. And you know that if you bump up against those limits of enough, you will be fired for it. It’s not a guess, it’s guaranteed. Every person who works in English language media understands that.”
Axios reported earlier this week that Carlson had a conversation with Twitter owner Elon Musk about working together. A week before his Fox News exit, Carlson interviewed Musk.
More to come.
