Tucker Carlson is reviving his show on Twitter, saying on Tuesday that the social media platform is the only one left that allows "free speech."
In a video posted on Twitter, Carlson said a "new version of the show we've been doing for the last six-and-a-half years" will be "starting soon." Twitter, he added, "has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site, everybody's allowed here, and we think that's a good thing."
The former host of Tucker Carlson Tonight was ousted from Fox News in late April, after the network agreed to pay $787.5 million to settle a defamation lawsuit filed against it by Dominion Voting Systems. Carlson was the top-rated host on Fox News, and Axios reported on Sunday that after it was announced Carlson was out, Newsmax, Rumble, and other right-wing outlets approached him about joining their teams.
