Grave concerns about Fox's move last week to remove Tucker Carlson from its primetime lineup is not about right or left or who is being let go from "red" or "blue" media because there is no party line anymore.
We're living the inconceivable moment in our history where the free press of the mainstream media has gone completely dark – those in power, aka the "uni-party" comprised of the rich and powerful on both sides – have silenced those with the greatest ability to reach the public from speaking truth. Love him or hate him, Tucker was brave enough to buck the lack of coverage at his own major network to ask questions about topics that became controversial because no one at the same level reported on them. His own statement following his firing is telling as well about the state of Freedom of the Press today, but also encouraging about how truth always prevails:
"Suddenly, the United States looks very much like a one-party state. That’s a depressing realization, but it’s not permanent. Our current orthodoxies won’t last. They’re braindead. Nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them. This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t. The people in charge know this, that’s why they’re so hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion; they’re resorting to force. But it won’t work. When honest people say what’s true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful. At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink. They become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe: true things prevail."
