Tucker Carlson Spotted In Moscow

Daily Report February 04,2024

Russian media released images of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson in Moscow, sparking rumors of an interview with President Vladimir Putin.

Carlson was reportedly spotted in Russia amid rumors of an impending interview with Putin. Daily Mail reports that Carlson had been in the country three days ago and was spotted at a Spartacus performance in the Bolshoi Theatre.

The outlet also reported that images of Carlson published by Russian media led many to believe that the host could be the first Western journalist to interview President Putin since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Carlson, who has defended Putin in the past, claimed he had previously tried to interview the president last year, but the U.S. government had stopped him.

Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) defended the prospect of Carlson interviewing Putin and expressed her thoughts in a post on social media.

“Democrats and their propagandists in the media are spasming at the prospect of Tucker Carlson interviewing Putin,” Greene said. “We have a free press in this country and its people like Tucker Carlson who we depend on to speak the truth.”

The first rumor about an interview with Putin first surfaced last September when Russian state television ran adverts on Carlson, tagging him as the high-profile American presenter moving to another level.

Daily Mail also reports that Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s press secretary, revealed last September that he believes the time will come for a Western media personality to interview the Russian president.

He, however, added that he is uncertain if Carlson will be among those considered for an interview with Putin.

However, Bill Kristol, former chief of staff to the vice president of the United States in the Reagan administration, suggested that Carlson be temporarily banned from returning to the U.S.

Carlson’s show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was once the most viewed cable news show in the U.S. before leaving Fox News last year.

Since then, the host has taken his show to X, where he has conducted several interviews with different high-profile figures, including Victor Orban, Hungary’s prime minister, and controversial online influencer Andrew Tate.
