「メディアは実に薄汚い。/ It’s filthy, really. 」

Tucker Carlson, who was fired from Fox News, posted a video on Twitter on Tuesday announcing that he will be doing a new version of his former political commentary show on the platform.
Foxを解雇されたカールソン氏が火曜日に Twitter でビデオを公開し、同プラットフォームで政治解説番組の新バージョンを行うことを発表した。

The hosts now take turns at 8 p.m. Eastern time. The audience, which used to average more than 3 million viewers each night, has now been cut in half.

In a three-minute video, Carlson accused the traditional news industry of intentionally “misleading” viewers and stressed the importance of free speech.





Much of what you see on television or read in The New York Times is in fact true in the literal sense. It could pass one of the media’s own ‘fact checks’. Lawyers would be willing to sign off on it. In fact, they may have. But that doesn’t make it true. It’s not true.
At the most basic level the news you consume is a lie, a lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. Facts have been withheld on purpose, along with proportion and perspective. You are being manipulated.
How does that work? Let’s see.
If I tell you that a man has been unjustly arrested for armed robbery, that is not, strictly speaking, a lie. He may have been framed, at this point, there has been no trial so no one can really say.
But if I don’t mention the fact that the same man has been arrested for the same crime six times before, am I really informing you?
No, I’m not. I’m misleading you. And that’s what the news media are doing in every story that matters, every day of the week, every week of the year.
What’s it like to work in a system like that? After more than 30 years in the middle of it, we could tell you stories.
The best you can hope for in the news business at this point is the freedom to tell the fullest truth that you can. But there are always limits. And you know that if you bump up against those limits often enough you will be fired for it. That’s not a guess. it’s guaranteed.
Every person who works in the English-language media understands that. The rule of what you can’t say defines everything. It’s filthy, really. And it’s utterly corrupting.

You can’t have a free society if people aren’t allowed to say what they think is true. Speech is the fundamental prerequisite for democracy. That’s why it’s enshrined in the first of our constitutional amendments.
Amazingly, as of tonight, there aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech. The last big one remaining in the world, the only one, is Twitter, where we are now.
Twitter has long served as the place where our national conversation incubates and develops. Twitter is not a partisan site, everybody is allowed here, and we think that’s a good thing.
And yet for the most part the news that you see analysed on Twitter comes from media organisations that are themselves thinly disguised propaganda outlets. You see it on cable news, you talk about it on Twitter. The result may feel like a debate but actually, the gatekeepers are still in charge.
We think that’s a bad system. We know exactly how it works and we’re sick of it.
Starting soon we’ll be bringing you a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six-and-a-half years to Twitter. We’ll be bringing some other things too which we’ll tell you about. But for now, we’re just grateful to be here.
Free speech is the main right that you have. Without it, you have no others.
See you soon.





Mr. Carlson, you are right. It was the case in Japan as well. Journalists were not the only ones who were fired for telling the truth.
I was condemned for simply saying something different from everyone else and branded a “social misfit.”



I live in daily fear of the depth of the ” Darkness” that I noticed during the pandemic.
I wonder what will come next.
I wonder if my children will be safe.




You will be astonished to learn that Japan will begin the sixth dose of shots. The old people in Japan still seem to have no idea what to expect. They have no doubt in the media.
