Tucker Carlson reveals when Putin interview will be aired

Carlson - Putin interview news

The conversation with the Russian president will be shown at 6 pm EST on Thursday on X and on his website.

American conservative journalist and political commentator Tucker Carlson has said that his conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin will be aired at 6 pm EST on Thursday. The announcement of the broadcast appeared on Carlson’s Instagram account.

Carlson, who launched his own network on X (formerly Twitter) in June 2023, has traveled to Moscow for a sit-down with Putin. The Kremlin confirmed the meeting on Tuesday.

The Russian president rarely grants one-on-one interviews to foreign press. Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that he has “no desire” to speak to Western media that have “completely one-sided” opinions and “aren’t even trying to be impartial.”

Carlson has said that he wanted to talk to the Russian leader because many Western news outlets “lie to their readers and viewers” and are biased in their coverage of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. “That’s wrong. Americans have the right to know all they can about a war they are implicated in,” he said in a video on X on Tuesday.

Carlson has been criticized by some politicians and media figures at home and abroad, who argued that his decision to speak to Putin would amplify Russian “propaganda.”

“He parrots Vladimir Putin’s pack of lies about Ukraine,” former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told MSNBC.

Newsweek quoted one former and two current members of the European Parliament as saying that Carlson could be banned from visiting the EU for providing “a platform” for Putin.

  1. I bet NZ MSM are being briefed about how to respond or ignore this interview. Either that or they masturbating themselves to oblivion. Both will be an anticlimax.

  2. Hearing the other side (or Free speech in general) is very worrying for deep state neocons and their puppets. Big risk that people will start thinking for themselves.

  3. It’s only in the Anglo-sphere and it’s EU lapdog, that Putin is seen as a villain. The Anglo sphere cannot accept that it’s time as dominant force is over and it ain’t coming back.
