(Congressional Agenda) – Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently unveiled what he’s been working on ever since being booted from the network back in April, and it’s a move that absolutely makes sense for someone in his position. Carlson took to social media platform X over the weekend, revealing the new site where he will be uploading content.
“We’ve been out of work for seven or eight months now, hard to know,” Carlson said at the start of the video. “Time flies when you’re unemployed.”
“But actually, we have been working in secret,” he continued.
“Carlson proceeded to say that he and his team have been producing ‘an awful lot of material for months now,'” The Western Journal reported.
He then told his fans, “We’d love for you to see it.”

“The site, tuckercarlson.com, does not give a launch date for its content but states it is ‘just days away’ from going live,” the piece noted. “The cost to become a member of the site is $72 per year, with an additional month free if members join now. Since Carlson left Fox, he has been posting to X and started ‘Tucker on X,’ where he has been conducting interviews with prominent political figures. In July, while speaking with comedian and actor Russell Brand, Carlson said he was not employed by X owner Elon Musk for his show on the platform.”
“I don’t work for Elon [Musk]. He’s paid me zero money,” Carlson explained. “I don’t think I ever want to work for anyone again.”

That is a very strong, bold statement. And it absolutely makes sense for someone in Tucker Carlson’s position. He was the highest rated personality on Fox News, drawing in 8 million viewers a night. Carlson was the main breadwinner for them, which is why it’s so stunning that Fox would bow down to the will of the left and fire him considering much of the money they made came from ads sold during his program.
With an audience and platform as large as Carlson’s, he’s better off going on his own. He won’t have to worry about being censored and not being able to cover stories he believes matter most. He can truly make valuable contributions to the movement without interference.
Carlson, who hasn’t earned anything since his firing, stated he’d also like to get back to making money.
“He hasn’t offered to hire me, and if he did I wouldn’t accept. … What he’s done is offer me what he’s offered every other user of Twitter, which is a chance to broadcast your views without a gatekeeper there,” Carlson remarked, speaking of Musk.
Fox was none too happy to find out that Carlson was doing his own program on X, sending him a cease and desist letter concerning the live broadcasts. He, of course, did not comply, continuing to air the interviews on his profile. Because he’s a total boss like that.
