(WatchDogReport.org) – Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has declared war on the mainstream media and parked vans outside the offices of major outlets, saying, “Corporate Media is Dead.” Carlson is in the midst of establishing his own ambitious media empire and parked his ominous truck billboards outside CNN, NBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.
Mr. Carlson’s new venture is a subscription site that will complement the free show he has been running on Twitter since April. Subscription costs $6 monthly, and Carlson promises exciting content he has been preparing since leaving Fox. “We have been working in secret and producing an awful lot of material for months now, interviews, et cetera,” he said.
Past guests on his Twitter broadcast include former President Trump and Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Having hosted a popular show for eight years, Tucker Carlson sensationally parted ways with Fox News in April, and the reasons were kept tightly under wraps. Speculation, however, suggested that his departure was partly spurred by the expensive lawsuit the network settled with voting systems company Dominion only days before.
Dominion – whose machines helped conduct the 2020 Presidential ballot – sued Fox for defamation over its handling of Donald Trump’s claim that the election was rigged.
“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert mocked Carlson’s new venture in a recent episode. Having called Mr. Carlson “Orville Redenbigot” and “too racist,” Colbert said people could pay to see the conservative anchor online, but “for zero dollars per month, you can never watch Tucker Carlson again.”
Mr. Colbert went on to reveal he had purchased a website named thetuckercarlsonnetwork.com, which is almost identical to the address of Carlson’s new site. However, the website simply shows an animated Tucker Carlson doing a Russian folk dance and provides links for people to donate to human rights charities.
The joke is reminiscent of a similar prank Carlson played on MSNBC host Keith Olbermann in 2010.
