Fox news Host Tucker Carlson covered Elon Musk’s apparent attempts to restore free speech to Twitter Tuesday, declaring that the Space X CEO’s efforts are a “direct challenge” to “illegitimate regimes” trying “so hard to control information through censorship.”
Pointing to Musk’s intimations that he will crack down on censorship on the platform, Carlson urged that “A free Twitter would mean an open debate about ideas on the single most important incubator of elite opinion in the world.”
He added, “It would mean a return to free and fair elections in the United States. A system in which both sides are allowed to make their case to the public and then the public can decide, it’s called democracy.”
“And above all, a free Twitter would mean a direct challenge to the people in charge of our country’s institutions, many of whom are incompetent,” Carlson added.
“The point of censorship always, and everywhere, is to protect entrenched power,” Carlson continued, adding That’s why it’s the powerful who impose censorship for their own benefit. And that’s exactly why illegitimate regimes fight so hard to control information through censorship, that’s their main concern.”
He further asserted, “Why are they so determined to keep you from talking? Because they know your talking is the threat to their power.”
“Questioning the prevailing story line is the crime,” Carlson emphasised, adding “Do that and you’re gone. Doesn’t matter if you are factually right. We were factually right. Doesn’t matter. Challenge power and you are censored instantly.”
“Now it’s hard to believe that the world’s richest man is the only person who could fix this,” Carlson declared, noting “Elon Musk seems to be our last hope.”
As we noted earlier this week, Musk has done a complete u-turn on joining the Twitter board, signalling that he may be readying a more complete takeover of the company, after buying an initial 9 percent stake.
Bloomberg reports that “the vibe” at Twitter’s corporate headquarters is now “super stressed,” with woke employees “working together to help each other get through the week.”
