In an unexpected turn of events, renowned television personality Tucker Carlson, formerly associated with Fox News, has ventured into Moscow with a unique mission—to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin. The seasoned journalist shared compelling insights into the rationale behind this unconventional undertaking, shedding light on the crucial role of journalism in enlightening the public amid a world-altering global conflict.

Carlson, whose departure from Fox News has not dampened his dedication to independent reporting, expressed the gravity of the situation, stating, “We’re here to interview the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin. There are risks to interviewing this, obviously, so we thought about it carefully over many months.”

His primary motivation, as outlined by Carlson, stems from a perceived lack of awareness among Americans regarding the intricate dynamics of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. “Two years into a war that’s reshaping the entire world, most Americans are not informed. They have no real idea what’s happening in this region, here in Russia or 600 miles away in Ukraine. But they should. Now, they’re paying for much of it in ways they might not fully yet perceive,” he emphasized.

Carlson asserted that the war in Ukraine has not only resulted in a human catastrophe but has also prompted a significant reshaping of global military and trade alliances. He underscored the transformative impact of sanctions, suggesting that they have disrupted the world economy and the post-World War II economic order.

In a scathing critique, Carlson accused American media outlets of corruption and disseminating misinformation by omission. He condemned the lack of traditional interviews with Russian President Vladimir Putin, highlighting a biased promotion of Ukrainian President Zelensky without offering a balanced perspective on the conflict.

“We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin. We are here because we love the United States and want it to remain prosperous and free,” Carlson affirmed. Drawing attention to past attempts by the Biden Administration to hinder their plans for a Putin interview through alleged illegal spying, Carlson maintained that they persevered with their mission in Moscow.

Despite potential concerns about censorship, Carlson assured the public that the interview would be freely accessible on his website,, and Elon Musk’s platform X. Expressing gratitude for Musk’s commitment to free speech, Carlson concluded by urging Americans to watch the interview and make informed decisions as engaged and discerning citizens.

Because he is a journalist, and it is his job.

Listen to Carlson’s reasoning.
