Tucker Carlson has finally broken his silence after exiting Fox News on Monday by issuing a video statement on social media.
Carlson’s just-over-two-minute video received millions of views in the hours after it went live, dwarfing the audience numbers that Fox News shows receive.
He began by highlighting how many “genuinely nice people” who “really care about what’s true” live in America.
Carlson then pivoted and hinted that a new era of news reporting is ready to replace the stale corporate media.
He spoke about how “unbelievably stupid most” television debates are.
The star anchor then called such debates “irrelevant” and said they “mean nothing” in the long run.
“The undeniably big topics — the ones that will define our future — get virtually no discussion at all,” Carlson noted.
“War, civil liberties, emerging science, demographic change, corporate power, natural resources.
“When was the last time you heard a legitimate debate about any of those issues?
“It’s been a long time. Debates like that are not permitted in American media,” Carlson said.
“Both political parties and their donors have reached consensus on what benefits them and they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it.
“Suddenly the United States looks very much like a one-party state.
“That’s a depressing realization but it’s not permanent,” he continued.
“Our current orthodoxies won’t last, they’re brain-dead, nobody actually believes them.”
He closed his statement with a hopeful message for viewers.
“When honest people say what’s true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful,” Carlson asserted.
“At the same time, the liars who have been trying to silence them, shrink and they became weaker.
“That’s the iron law of the universe, truth things prevail.
“As long as you can hear the words, there is hope. See you soon,” he concluded.
Carlson and Fox News agreed to part ways on Monday, as Slay News reported.
Brian Kilmeade and other replacement hosts are temporarily taking over his 8 p.m. slot.
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the network said in a statement.
“We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”

Carlson’s show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was Fox News’s most popular program.
It was the highest-rated show on cable news and it even attracted more liberal viewers than his left-wing “rivals,” including Rachel Maddow.
His sudden departure drew a fierce backlash from conservatives who felt blindsided by Fox News’s decision.
