Two days after shocking the country by parting ways with Fox News, beloved host Tucker Carlson posted a two-minute video monologue. He started by saying he had realized how many funny and nice people there are after stepping away from “the noise.”
“Good evening, it’s Tucker Carlson, one of the first things you notice when you step outside the noise for a few days is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country, kind and decent people who really care about what’s true. And a bunch of hilarious people, also. A lot of those.”

Carlson then went on to talk about how meaningless most tv news debates are, saying they fail to address the things that really matter,
“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,” he said. “They’re completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years, we won’t even remember we heard them. Trust me, as somebody who has participated.
And yet, at the same time…the undeniably big topics, the ones that will define our future, get virtually no discussion at all. 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?
Debates like that are not permitted in American media, both political parties and their donors have reached a 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; our current orthodoxy won’t last. They are brain-dead; nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them. This moment is too inherently ridiculous to last, so it won’t.
The people in charge know this; that’s why they are hysterical and aggressive; they’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion, and they’re resorting to force. But it won’t work. When honest people say what’s true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who try to silence them shrink, and they become weaker…true things prevail. Where can you still find Americans saying true things? There aren’t many places left, but there are some, and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope.”
Without addressing what happened at Fox News or what his future looks like, Carlson ended with a simple, “See you soon.”
