NBC News host actually asks if anyone will be able to 'police' what Tucker Carlson says on his new Twitter program: 'Or is this the point? It's just a free-for-all?'
On the heels of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson announcing Tuesday that he's planning a new program to air on Twitter, "NBC News NOW"
On the heels of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson announcing Tuesday that he's planning a new program to air on Twitter, "NBC News NOW" guest host Tom Costello brought in former CNN host Brian Stelter for a chat about it all, NewsBusters said.
What did they say?
“Twitter was already under fire for misinformation, disinformation, all-out lies, anti-Semitism, racism before Elon Musk took over, and now it’s gotten kind of crazy, right? Seemingly unmoored, if you will,” Costello suggested to Stelter, who himself was repeatedly blasted with accusations of peddling misinformation prior to his ouster from CNN last year.
Costello continued with a jaw-dropping question: “Will anybody be able to police what Carlson says? Or is this the point? It's just a free-for-all?”
Stelter didn't appear shocked by the "police" reference: “I think this is the point. It is a free-for-all. It's what Elon Musk wants to provide. This move by Tucker may cement the idea of Twitter as a right-wing website."
