Russian media outlet "Mash" reports that former Fox News host Tucker Carlson was seen at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow in recent days. On the social media platform X, there's enormous interest in Carlson's trip and speculation about whether he plans to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As of Sunday morning, "Tucker" is trending on X with over 307,000 posts.
The journalist previously relayed a story about trying to set up a Putin interview, until a Washington, DC source briefed him about how the NSA spied on him:
"The NSA broke into my signal account, which I didn't know they could do," he previously said.
'"I got a call from somebody in Washington. This person said: 'Are you gonna come to Washington anytime soon?' Yeah. Actually, I'm gonna be up in a week, meet me Sunday morning."
"So I go, and this person's like: 'Are you planning a trip to go see Putin?' And I was like, 'how would you know that?' I haven't told anybody. I mean anybody. Not my brother. Not my wife, nobody."
"How would you know that? 'Because NSA pulled your text with this other person you were texting.'"

"Uncensored on X. The US deep state and the Biden administration must be in panic mode because Putin (the most censored man in the West) will expose their propaganda and lies," X user Kim Dotcom wrote in a post.

Neocons are going berserk:
"Perhaps we need a total and complete shutdown of Tucker Carlson re-entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on," Bill Kristol said.

"Barring a journalist from coming home is some KGB shit, Bill."

"Tucker Carlson will interview Putin and the media is in panic mode. They're losing control of the narrative," another X user said.
Tucker hasn’t even chatted with Putin yet, and the first fights have already broken out on the Internet.— Ignorance, the root and stem of all evil (@ivan_8848) February 4, 2024
Tucker Carlson will interview Putin and the media is in panic mode.
They're losing control of the narrative.
The interview will be aired exclusively on @elonmusk

Recall last month, the editor-in-chief of WSJ warned elites at Davos: "We no longer own the news."
At a discussion titled 'Defending Truth,' the WSJ editor-in-chief admitted to #Davos2024 #WorldEconomicForum elites that the legacy media no longer 'own the news', lamenting "We were the gatekeepers, and we very much owned the facts as well."

This comes as Elon Musk has freed Twitter from corporate and government control while citizen journalists, armed with keyboards, report the news unbiasedly. In other words, the matrix has glitched.
And this is true...
If only NeoCons had the same energy when it comes to illegal immigrants entering the country as do over Tucker Carlson traveling to Russia. pic.twitter.com/DiuRbaqwih— ALX 🇺🇸 (@alx) February 4, 2024
It's epic to see elites are in total meltdown this weekend, when they should be promoting conversations between nations.
If Tucker interviews Putin, that's great. We need more conversations not less.— Lex Fridman (@lexfridman) February 4, 2024
