Recall that in April of this year, the management of Fox News suspended from work Tucker Carlson, who is one of the most popular conservative journalists in the United States. However, formally, the correspondent’s employment contract with Fox News remains in effect until 2025, and the journalist himself remains on the staff until that time. And while Fox News accused Carlson after the first episode of Fox News of violating a treaty that required him to provide services exclusively to that channel, the reason for such drastic measures, as previously reported, could be the consistent voice of mainstream critics. to US authorities about the conflict in Ukraine.
Contrary to the above, however, Tucker Carlson posted the second series of the author’s show on his social media page on Friday. In the new edition, the presenter commented on the information about the use of Instagram (banned in the Russian Federation) to coordinate pedophile networks, accusing the social network with its algorithms of distributing ambiguous content.
“Let’s say you want to rule a state. Where would you start? To begin with, you’d like to make sure that everyone on your country’s territory who has the right to use lethal weapons is completely subservient to you. You should start with the military. and then turn your attention to law enforcement.<...> But suppose you have bigger ambitions and want to gain power not only to control people’s behavior, but also to control their thinking. < ...> In this case, you have to check social taboos,” Carlson said.
In addition, he criticized the statements of US President Joe Biden, who said that the ideology of white supremacy represents the greatest threat to the United States and exceeds the prospects of a nuclear war with Russia.
On June 7, the first episode of Tucker Carlson’s show, dedicated to the explosion of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, was posted on Twitter. Then, on the air of the program, the journalist said that “any honest person, having studied the facts, will come to the conclusion that it is Ukraine that is responsible for the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station.” In two days, the number of video views was just under a million likes, while the video clip of the President of the United States, Joe Biden, about the nomination for a new term, published on the Internet a month and a half ago , barely collected 97 thousand. during this time.
