In the aftermath of Tucker Carlson’s ouster from Fox News, questions have arisen about his documentary about tyranny in Canada and whether it will be released — but a recent statement from the news network suggests the documentary will never be seen.
Fox News’ streaming service has allowed numerous other “Tucker Carlson Originals” documentaries to remain available on the platform but has chosen not to allow viewers to watch the much-anticipated documentary about Canada’s tyrannical government.
According to the Canadian Press, Carlson’s documentary was scheduled to be released on Monday. However, a spokesperson for Fox News has stated that “there are no further episodes of Tucker Carlson Originals running” on Fox Nation.
Meanwhile, Fox News has kept the preview for Carlson’s documentary available on its official YouTube channel. The short clip includes footage of brutal actions taken by Canadian police against unarmed protesters, as well as footage of arrests of innocent Canadians for violating authoritarian government mandates — all of which is juxtaposed with clips of former U.S. presidents speaking about how it is our duty to liberate people in foreign countries from oppressive governments.
“For more than a hundred years, the United States has, as a matter of official policy, opposed dictatorships around the world. But what if tyranny arrived right next door? What would that look like? And what would our government do in response?” Carlson asked at the start of the preview.
He then questioned whether the U.S. would “liberate the people living under authoritarian rule as we have around the world?”
This news comes after Fox News abruptly announced in a press release that it was parting ways with Carlson on April 24 — causing a sharp decline in both their stock and their ratings. Many conservatives have also canceled their Fox Nation subscriptions, claiming that Carlson was the only reason that they had signed up for the service.
While Fox is losing viewers, it appears that Carlson is only gaining in popularity after being freed from the network. His first public statement after the split came in the form of a video posted to Twitter, which received 23.5 million views as of May 1.
“Our current orthodoxies won’t last,” Carlson said in the video, adding: “They’re brain-dead. Nobody actually believes them. Hardly anyone’s life is improved by them. This moment is too inherently ridiculous to continue, and so it won’t. The people in charge notice; that’s why they’re hysterical and aggressive. They’re afraid. They’ve given up persuasion — they’re resorting to force. But it won’t work.”
“When honest people say what’s true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful,” he added. “At the same time, the liars who’ve been trying to silence them shrink and they become weaker. That’s the iron law of the universe. True things prevail. Where can you still find Americans saying true things? There aren’t many places left, but there are some and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope.”
