Twitter owner Elon Musk and Fox News host Tucker Carlson are on track to record a groundbreaking interview. The pair announced that the interview will air on Monday and Tuesday.
There will be a number of topics slated for next week’s special, including the role of artificial intelligence (A.I.) and the future of Twitter. Recently, the social media company owner tweeted about the danger of A.I. technology.
In a sneak preview of the interview, the power of artificial intelligence may potentially cause an apocalypse.
He said in part that A.I. “has the potential, however, small one may regard that probability, but it is non-trivial, it has the potential of civilization destruction.”

The two may also touch upon the recent controversy in which Twitter described National Public Radio (NPR) as “state-affiliated media.” Both NPR and PBS said that they planned to leave Twitter over the controversy even after the tag was changed.
Musk has previously talked about his experience purchasing the social media company. He is also a consistent tweeter on the platform. In the past, Musk has called ownership of the company “really quite a stressful situation.”
The result is what will likely be one of the most watched interviews of the young decade. For many observers of both Carlson and Musk, the discussion will be a major window into the growing relationship between the two major figures.
Carlson had previously defended Musk on his program, stating that the political left was looking to destroy the Tesla founder.
Carlson is the most popular host on Fox News, which is the most popular news network on television.
In February, Carlson brought in a whopping 3.5 million viewers, including almost half a million in the 25-54 age range.
The Fox News host also received considerable praise from conservatives after airing previously unseen footage from the Jan. 6, 2021 protests. He also aired a high-profile interview with former President Donald Trump this past week.
Musk, for his part, has received considerable attention since his purchase of Twitter last year. In addition to owning one of the most influential social media platforms, the billionaire received praise from conservatives for allowing previously banned voices back to the site.
