During Wednesday’s broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, host Tucker Carlson stated that the suppression of speech by big tech companies amounts to a “censorship cartel.”

Carlson began, “According to Senator Hawley’s whistleblowers, [Facebook program] Tasks allows Facebook’s censorship teams to quote, ‘Communicate with their counterparts at Twitter and Google and then enter those companies suggestions for censorship onto the task platform so that Facebook can then follow up with them and effectively coordinate their censorship efforts.’”

“Got that? They’re all in it together. The tech companies amount to a censorship cartel.” Carlson continued. “Mark Zuckerberg did not deny this, instead, he conceded it would be, quote, ‘Probably pretty normal for people to talk to their peers in the industry.’ And so yes, it is all real. Silicon Valley acts as one.”

“The tech oligarchs join forces to censor their political opponents. You may be one of them.” He said. “You weren’t being paranoid to worry about this. You were absolutely right.”
