U.S. Government Intervenes On Tucker Carlson

During an interview with Swiss magazine Weltwoche, Tucker Carlson, a prominent conservative journalist and pundit, asserted that the United States government intervened to impede his opportunity to get an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I’ve become convinced over the past several years — particularly since the war in Ukraine began — that the world is changing much more quickly than most Americans understand,” Carlson said when describing his post-Fox News activities. “And because there’s virtually no coverage of the rest of the world in American media, Americans don’t have a good sense of it.”

According to Carlson, he expressed a longstanding aspiration to engage in global travel and engage in dialogues with various world leaders. However, he cited the limitations imposed by his professional commitments at Fox News as a hindrance to fulfilling this ambition. Following his termination from the network, he has conducted interviews with other prominent global leaders or political contenders. I have conducted numerous interviews with individuals who hold leadership positions in countries or organizations. Over the course of three decades, I have conducted numerous interviews with a multitude of leaders. Carlson (2021) asserted that assuming such responsibility has been within his professional purview. Furthermore, he reported engaging in a recent conversation with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the esteemed president of the United Arab Emirates.

Carlson clams that the Emirati leader was characterized as an exceptionally sagacious ruler throughout their interview, with a notable willingness to acknowledge areas of uncertainty. “Wise people admit what they don’t know, and I’ve never seen that before. You don’t see that in the West. You’re not going to interview a presidential candidate in the United States, or a president, for that matter, who’s willing to say, ‘I don’t know the answer. I’ve thought about it, and I’m not sure.’ They’ll never say that, because you can’t admit you don’t know.”

Later in the interview, the topic of the media’s position in the US and the growing consolidation of government and commercial media interests became apparent. When asked why, in the last ten years, American confidence in mainstream media has collapsed. Carlson said, “Well, because if you want to subvert a democracy, you need to control the information that citizens receive. I’d argue that the news media in democracies is far less trustworthy than it is in other countries simply because it matters more in a democracy.”

“There has been a very aggressive attempt, over a number of decades on the part of the people who run the United States, to control what’s available on our news stations and in our newspapers — to control the news media. And they have,” he continued, adding that many U.S. media organizations have been happy to allow it.

Carlson went on to provide a number of examples of subjects that are off-limits, such as challenging the COVID-19 vaccine’s deployment or the official account of the situation in Ukraine. There could be a nuclear exchange between superpowers in this. Shouldn’t we be as knowledgeable as possible? “No.” About the war, Carlson said, “You’re not allowed.”

“I tried to interview Vladimir Putin, and the US government stopped me,” the former Fox News host then revealed. “So, think about that for a minute. By the way, nobody defended me. I don’t think there was anybody in the news media who said, ‘Wait a second. I may not like this guy, but he has a right to interview anyone he wants, and we have a right to hear what Putin says,’” he continued. “You’re not allowed to hear Putin’s voice. Because why? There was no vote on it. No one asked me. I’m 54 years old. I’ve paid my taxes and followed the law.”
