Tucker Carlson is trying to build his own media empire after leaving Fox News.

But the worst thing possible just happened.

And Tucker Carlson may lose everything because of this phone call.

Tucker Carlson announces nationwide tour

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson is building out his own streaming network of paid subscribers.

He doesn’t have access to his platform at Fox News anymore.

So, to drum up interest and business, Carlson needs to take his show on the road.


Carlson recently posted a video to social media announcing a nationwide tour.

The shows line up with the election to capitalize on peak interest in American politics.

“Hey, it’s Tucker Carlson. The one thing we know for certain is the United States is going to be one intense place this fall moving into this Presidential election. So we thought, what better time to hit the road and see the country, and we are going to this fall,” Carlson stated.

Carlson will host shows in 15 cities with a variety of big-name guests to appear on stage with him.

“We are pleased—in fact, thrilled—to announce Tucker Carlson Live which is what it sounds like: a nationwide tour and at every show will be joined by a friend, a special guest. Megyn Kelly, Glenn Beck, Tulsi Gabbard, Vivek Ramaswamy, Russell Brand, and many others,” Carlson added.

CNN tries to censor Carlson

Ever since former President Donald Trump won the 2016 Election, there is no greater supporter of censorship in America than the media team at CNN.

Led first by Brian Stelter and now Oliver Darcy, the left-wing activists at CNN make it their mission to apply pressure on corporations to silence any voice that disagrees with Democrat Party orthodoxy.

Darcy got pro-Trump radio host Alex Jones deplatformed by every major social media company.

Now he’s trying to cancel Carlson.

The common tactic is calling up corporate sponsors and demanding to know why they are in business with conservatives who Darcy and other Democrats describe as racist, sexist threats to democracy.

This isn’t journalism.

It’s activism.

Darcy knows without companies willing to advertise or arenas hosting events there is no such thing as freedom of speech as conservatives are left shouting into a void.

He tried this tactic with Live Nation – who is selling tickets to the tour – and the arenas set to host Carlson’s shows.

“Asked for comment this week, representatives for the Live Nation subsidiary chose not to respond. In fairness to the company’s public relations division, it is difficult to see how they can defend such conduct. How can any decent person not only participate in enabling Carlson’s poisoning of the public discourse but also justify profiting off of his hateful rhetoric in the process?” Darcy wrote in his Reliable Sources newsletter.

“CNN also posed questions to the venues hosting Carlson, which include the Honda Center, T-Mobile Center, Delta Center, Dickies Arena, Intrust Bank Arena, and others. Spokespeople representing each respective venue did not provide a comment,” Darcy added.

Censorship as a political tactic

The First Amendment prevents the government from shutting down conservative media.

But woke companies can always be bullied into censorship through a refusal to do business with people on the Right.

Darcy all but admitted his goal was to silence conservatives.

“Companies with basic ethics should, of course, reject doing business with dishonest figures who profit by dumping toxic waste into the country’s information environment,” Darcy wrote.

However, Darcy wrote that censoring the Left’s political enemies was worth the blowback as Republicans would likely be powerless to do anything about it.

“But, while the politics of 2024 makes for a thorny business environment for companies to navigate, from an ethics perspective, the questions that lie before them come with clear and obvious answers,” Darcy added.
