Tucker Carlson breaks his silence following his departure from Fox News.
Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host, has broken his quiet in a video in which he attacks “liars trying to silence” honest people.
The little video was shared on Twitter two days following his departure. He did not explain why he was leaving or discuss his future plans.
Fox News announced a “parting of ways” with Carlson.
His departure occurred just days after Fox agreed to settle a slander lawsuit over its coverage of the 2020 presidential race.
Carlson made his first public comments since leaving Fox News in a two-minute video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, addressing “things you notice when you take a little time off,” including “how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are.”
“However, when honest people say what is true, calmly and without embarrassment,” he says, “they become powerful.”
“At the same time, the liars who have been trying to silence them shrink, and they become weaker.”
“Where can you still find Americans saying true things?” he concludes. There aren’t many left, but there are a few.”
Carlson, 53, was not only a popular Fox News host, but also a very influential one, with an average of three million Americans tuning in every night.
