Jimmy Kimmel pointed out how Tucker Carlson is using Russian propaganda to defend his interview with Putin.
Kimmel said: “Tucker Carlson still doesn’t have a job. He is in Moscow. Looking for a house, I hope. But no, Tucker is actually there to interview Vladimir Putin, which is blatantly ridiculous. He posted a preemptive video to nervously “explain” why he is doing this. Vladimir Putin is a murderer and war criminal who hates America. He hates everything America stands for. He is a liar and a propagandist, but Tuck believes we simply need to listen to him: “Not a single Western journalist has bothered to interview the president of the other country involved in this conflict, Vladimir Putin.”
Kimmel added: “I love being involved in this conflict.” That’s like saying that in Jaws, the great white shark was “involved in the bites.” It takes two to eat.”

Why did one of the most direct denunciations of what Tucker Carlson is doing come from a late-night comedian instead of the entire mainstream American corporate media?
All media outlets should condemn what Tucker Carlson did and commit to not giving even a second of airtime to his interview with Putin so that Putin can spread his lies and disinformation in an attempt to weaken and exploit political divisions in the United States. Joined.
Tucker Carlson is a Putin propagandist, and it’s time for the American people to tell Russia that they can keep Carlson and not send him back.
