Tucker Carlson Shares Twitter Video Two Days After His Demise from Fox News

Tucker Carlson broke his silence following Fox News’ announcement that he would no longer be with the network.

Without mentioning his Fox departure directly, the television personality took to Twitter Wednesday to share a video statement.

“One of the first things you realize, when you step outside the noise for a few days, is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country and decent people who really care about what’s true,” Carlson said, adding that “the other thing you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are.”

“They’re completely irrelevant,” he continued. “They mean nothing. In five years we won’t even remember that we had them. Trust me, as someone who’s participated.”

The video ran a little over two minutes, and was seen by 1.7 million people within the hour after it was posted — is sure to invite more speculation about what’s next for Carlson, an influential figure in conservative media and politics.

Carlson’s departure shook the world of cable news and political media. It came days after Fox News reached a $787.5 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems, and just before a defamation trial stemming from a lawsuit filed by the company against the network was set to begin. The company accused Fox News of knowingly airing false statements claiming Dominion helped to rig the 2020 presidential election against former President Donald Trump.

At Fox, he was the network’s most popular host, with his primetime show drawing an average of more than three million viewers nightly.
