Tucker Carlson on Tuesday posted the first episode of his new Twitter show since Fox News ousted him in April. The 10-minute video features the popular conservative commentator sitting in a wood-paneled room and delivering a monologue in which he skewers some of his favorite targets, including the news media.
Carlson, who often trafficked in conspiracy theories in his time at Fox, raised questions in his short video about the September 11 terrorist attacks, the finances of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and UFOs.
A more pertinent question for Carlson may be whether he can replicate his success at Fox News, where he was the network's top ratings draw. At the same time, his sexist and racist comments over the years had also sparked advertiser boycotts, with major companies such as AstraZeneca and Pacific Life backing away from his former show.
