Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host, has recently made headlines after his sudden departure from the network. However, it seems that some people were not surprised by the news, given his recent cryptic criticism of the “media apparatus.”
In a recent podcast, Carlson discussed the media’s role in controlling the narrative and shaping public opinion. He admitted that he had been part of the problem in the past, but now saw the media as a significant obstacle to the truth. He suggested that the media was not just biased but actively participating in a larger system of control.
I had a weird feeling that Tucker Carlson’s days were numbered when I watched this clip last month.
“The media are part of the control apparatus… Not only are they part of the problem but I spent most of my life being part of the problem.”

Some people may have interpreted Carlson’s remarks as a sign that he was ready to leave Fox News and pursue other opportunities. His departure is seen as a blow to the network, which had relied heavily on his commentary to attract viewers.
However, it appears that Carlson’s departure may have been inevitable, given his recent comments about the destructive forces in American politics. In a speech at the Heritage Foundation, he argued that some people were not interested in traditional political goals but were instead focused on tearing down institutions for the sake of destruction.

It seems that Tucker Carlson’s departure from Fox News was not entirely unexpected, given his recent comments about the media and the destructive forces in American politics. However, it remains to be seen what his next move will be and whether he will continue to be a prominent voice in the public sphere.
Carlson’s remarks suggest that he sees a fundamental threat to American democracy in the form of these destructive forces. He believes that they are not just misguided but actively evil, and that they pose a significant threat to the future of the country.
