When we saw this headline, we didn’t believe it was real at first. But then again, CNN does run opinion pieces now and then, so we clicked to see whose opinion this was. Not surprisingly, it’s media hall monitor Oliver Darcy, and it’s not an opinion piece but straight news.
Right-wing extremist Tucker Carlson will relaunch his program on Twitter, a platform he praised as the only remaining large free-speech platform in the world after Fox News fired him late last month. https://t.co/QwlHtYvlDB

Darcy knows this doesn’t work, right? If everyone on the right wing is an “extremist,” then nobody is. It’s the same thing President Biden tried with labeling everything he didn’t like “extreme MAGA” or “ultra-MAGA.”
Darcy’s probably feeling stung by Tucker Carlson calling out CNN for lying to its viewers. They’re doing it right now, exactly as Carlson said.
Right-wing extremist Tucker Carlson announced Tuesday that he will relaunch his program on Twitter, which he praised as the only remaining large free-speech platform in the world after Fox News fired him late last month.
Carlson demonized the news media in his announcement video, accusing journalists of often excluding facts that detract from their narratives. He did not mention Musk has censored speech on Twitter, including banning several prominent reporters from the website just last year.
Carlson was able to achieve that influence by posting high ratings. But his monster viewership numbers were earned through the trafficking of anti-immigrant rhetoric, false conspiracy theories, and the promotion of white nationalist talking points.
CNN suddenly has a problem with false conspiracy theories?
CNN, you guys are hilarious.

Carlson’s Twitter video is on track to beat CNN’s prime-time viewership by a wide margin.

I see CNN officially stopped pretending to be real news. Good. The act was getting quite sad and played out.

CNN: “Right-wing extremist” = anyone who doesn’t automatically believe whatever the Biden Admin tells us
— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) May 9, 2023
This is why you are hemorrhaging viewers and employees and the majority of Americans don’t trust “news”

Narrator: Everyone on CNN is a "left-wing extremist" who considers all forms of dissent "right-wing extremism"
— Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) May 9, 2023
The framing of this tweet perfectly exemplifies why CNN is about to be crushed.
— Santa Cruz Mountain Goat 🏴 (@SCMountainGoat) May 9, 2023
Are we still supposed to pretend that CNN plays it straight down the middle? We’d point to CNN’s prime-time lineup, but we don’t know who’s on anymore — left-wing extremists Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon are both gone.
Tucker Carlson says he’s bringing his show back … to TWITTER! This is going to be awesome!https://t.co/VWWnqGWpwj
