Tucker Carlson has released a video on Twitter revealing he is apparently partnering with the platform to continue his popular “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on the free speech infrastructure owned by Elon Musk.

In a three minute video, Carlson made his strongest remarks yet about leaving Fox News, saying that all cable news “is a lie” and viewers “are being manipulated” before noting that “you will be fired” for reaching the limits of what networks consider acceptable free speech.

Noting his disgust with the cable news industry, and American media as a whole, Carlson then revealed that he will take his show to Twitter.

“You often here people say the news is full of lies. but most of the time that’s not exactly right, much of what you see on television or read in the New York Times is in fact true in a literal sense. It can pass one of the media’s own fact checks, lawyers would be willing to sign off on it, in fact they may have. But that doesn’t make it true, it’s not true,” said Carlson. “At the most basic level the news you consume is a lie, a lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. Facts have been withheld on purpose along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated.”

He continued by discussing his years in the media:

What’s it like to work in a system like that? After more than 30 years in the middle of it we could tell you stories. The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can, but there are always limits, and you know that if you bump up against those limits often enough, you will be fired for it. That’s not a guess, it’s guaranteed. Every person who works in English-language media understands that. The rule of what you can’t say defines everything.
 
It’s filthy really, and it’s utterly corrupting. You can’t have a free society if people aren’t allowed to say what they think is true. Speech is the fundamental prerequisite for democracy, that’s why its enshrined…
