Tucker Carlson The US Government Intervened to Prevent My Interview with Putin

Popular conservative journalist and commentator Tucker Carlson claimed the United States government stepped in to “prevent” him from interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In an interview with Swiss magazine Weltwoche, Carlson claimed that the US government prevented him from interviewing the Russian leader.

“I’ve become convinced over the past several years — particularly since the war in Ukraine began — that the world is changing much more quickly than most Americans understand,” Carlson told the magazine.

“And because there’s virtually no coverage of the rest of the world in American media, Americans don’t have a good sense of it.”

Carlson has longed expressed his desire to speak with different world leaders, but was prevented by the constraints of his Fox News job.

However, since being fired, Tucker has interviewed a number of world leaders or candidates.

“I’ve interviewed a lot of people who run countries or organizations. I’ve interviewed a lot of leaders in, well, thirty years,” he said.

“That’s been my job,” Carlson said, adding that he spoke with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the president of the United Arab Emirates.

Carlson described the Emirati leader as one of the wisest rulers he has ever interviewed, explaining how he was not afraid to admit what he was unsure of.

“Wise people admit what they don’t know, and I’ve never seen that before. You don’t see that in the West,” Tucker said.

“You’re not going to interview a presidential candidate in the United States, or a president, for that matter, who’s willing to say, ‘I don’t know the answer. I’ve thought about it, and I’m not sure.'” he said.

“They’ll never say that because you can’t admit you don’t know,” Tucker added.

Carlson also sat down with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who recently warned him that a “3rd world war is knocking at the door.”

Watch

When Carlson was asked why the trust in American media has plummeted over the last decade, he had a direct answer.

“Well, because if you want to subvert a democracy, you need to control the information that citizens receive,” Carlson said.

“I’d argue that the news media in democracies is far less trustworthy than it is in other countries simply because it matters more in a democracy,” he added.

“There has been a very aggressive attempt, over a number of decades on the part of the people who run the United States, to control what’s available on our news stations and in our newspapers — to control the news media,” he continued.

“And they have,” he added, asserting that many UA media organizations have been happy to allow it.

Carlson also highlighted “off-limit” topics, including questioning the COVID-19 vaccine rollout or the war in Ukraine.

“This is potentially a nuclear conflict between superpowers,” he said.

“Shouldn’t we know all that we can? ‘No.’ You’re not allowed,” Carlson said of the war.

“I tried to interview Vladimir Putin, and the US government stopped me,” Tucker Carlson said.

“So, think about that for a minute. By the way, nobody defended me. I don’t think there was anybody in the news media who said, ‘Wait a second. I may not like this guy, but he has a right to interview anyone he wants, and we have a right to hear what Putin says,'” he continued.

“You’re not allowed to hear Putin’s voice. Because why?”

“There was no vote on it. No one asked me,” he said.

“I’m 54 years old. I’ve paid my taxes and followed the law.”
