Tucker Carlson Interview with Putin requested by Margarita Simonyan

Over the months, translated clips of Fox News host Tucker Carlson have been do the rings on Russian state television, fun host, expert, and experts with their pro-Russian inclinations. Some of the top propagandists even worry out loud that Carlson’s apparent pro-Kremlin bias could cause him to be “sidelined” or silenced.

Behind the scenes, Carlson is said to have flirted with Kremlin middlemen in situation to secure an interview with Russian President Putin. What could be seen as a lengthy audition could soon succeed — Putin’s mouthpieces in high places are now openly promoting an interview with the controversial presenter. Appeared on state TV show Evening with Vladimir Soloviev on Wednesday, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan practically pleaded with anyone who might be able to go ahead and grant Carlson’s long-standing wish.

The program broadcast a translated clip of Tucker Carlson Tonight from the night before, where Carlson’s guest, retired Army Colonel Doug Macgregor, Discuss that Russia’s intention to subjugate Ukraine should be taken seriously and even respectfully. Macgregor argued that “Russia has a legitimate national security interest in Ukraine” and said that “Russia is about to demonstrate that we are powerless in Eastern Europe to stop them.” And I don’t see any evidence of this overwhelming support around the world for sanctions against Russia over what most people consider a matter of interest. national security interests for Russia”. Carlson nodded approvingly.

After watching the video, the head of RT praised Carlson in a way no other American TV presenter has been praised on Kremlin-sponsored TV. Deliver her pitch to Putin in the style of the infamous former President Trump “Russia, if you’re listening”, Simonyan extrusion to Soloviev: “You showed the amazing clip of Tucker Carlson, who is — by the way — dreaming of interviewing Vladimir Putin, simply dreaming about it! It’s not in my sights, but if someone can make it happen, that would be great. He’s the most popular showrunner in the United States and probably the only reasonable person, with the biggest audience, who understands everything the way it should be understood.” Soloviev and the other guests on the set nodded in agreement.

Showing his dedication as a viewer, Simonyan came up with a episode about Carlson’s show: “A few days ago on his show, he was Remarkable Tulsi Gabbard… I wanted to briefly recount what she had to say, because it felt like she was standing here in the studio on my behalf and saying it all right here. I agree with everything she says. She said the following: ‘Mr. Biden, why don’t you tell the Russians that Ukraine will never join NATO? That’s what they’re asking for. Also, with a high degree of probability, it will never be able to participate, for various reasons. You understand that it’s theirs [Russia’s] legitimate interests [Ukraine] do not participate, but you do not do it. “

Echoing Gabbard’s words, seemingly not realizing the irony of describing exactly what was going on in Putin’s Russia, Simonyan continued: “You’re telling us you’re defending democracy. . Mr. Biden, what kind of democracy is that when they shut down one channel after another and imprison their political opponents, because they can’t hold power any other way? Simonyan went on to re-enact Gabbard’s speech, blaming the military-industrial complex and the media for encouraging war and profiting from the situation. She went on to back a sublime story, claiming that all the information released by the mainstream Western media is being disseminated based on the directives of drunk and incoherent reporters. directly from intelligence agencies.

Same day, RT published an op-ed, praising Tucker Carlson, Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein for their “anti-war” stance, as they opposed Ukraine’s possible accession to NATO.

Dmitry Kulikov — a member of the Zinoviev Club, founded by the Kremlin-controlled media giant Russia Today—Said that the growing friction between Russia and the United States should be treated as an ongoing information war. He praised Simonyan for his “excellent description of arrangements between the media and intelligence agencies” and stated that Tucker Carlson was one of the very few journalists exempted from such dealings.

In this ongoing “information war,” Carlson’s programming and Russian state television somehow ended up perfectly on a variety of controversial topics, not limited to Ukraine and Russia. On his show Wednesday night, Soloviev called on Americans to pay attention to truckers in Canada protesting against mandatory coronavirus vaccinations — instead of focusing on left-leaning opposition activist Alexei Navalny prison. Tucker Carlson Tonight and Fox News has generally provided extensive coverage on the subjectJust behind RT, according to the statistics of Real clear politics Which Simonyan? posted on her Twitter page.

Appearing on Soloviev’s program on Tuesday, political scientist and Professor of Communication Dmitry Evstafiev careful that in Russia’s dealings with the West, time is of the essence. Evstafiev named the midterm elections in the United States as the main point of reference, with control of both houses of Congress and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate by 2022. Russian experts have great expectations for the GOP to change its stance on Russia due to potential divisions within the Republican party and a pro-Russian diversion in the conservative media – pushed by none other than Tucker Carlson. In exchange for Carlson’s helpful contributions to their cause, Russian propagandists seemed willing to reward him with an interview Putin so coveted.
