"Solovyov insinuated that dark forces in America are out to get Carlson, noting that his firing came a day before President Joe Biden announced his run for re-election." Pretty much the same line of thought you'll see from the far right here. It's all a great conspiracy from the liberal establishment, never mind that almost all American institutions from the Supreme Court on down are now run by radical extremists.

Kremlin propagandists were in mourning as they predicted on air that Tucker Carlson will be thrown in prison after his firing from Fox News.

In the months before his ouster from Fox News, Carlson has been favorably cited time and again by Russian state TV presenters. Ever since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, Carlson has constantly trashed Ukraine, amplified Russian propaganda, and complained about America’s aid to the democratically-elected government being attacked by a hostile foreign power.

“The main issue is that he started to discuss, in harsh terms, all of the goals that the liberal establishment is pursuing abroad,” Drobnitsky said, according to a translation. Solovyov followed by proclaiming “Freedom to Tucker Carlson,” and he also invited the former Fox host to come work with him.

Julia Davis, a Daily Beast columnist, and curator of the Russian Media Monitor, regularly flagged state TV conversations where the presenters grimly addressed Carlson’s ouster.

Solovyov insinuated that dark forces in America are out to get Carlson, noting that his firing came a day before President Joe Biden announced his run for re-election. Drobnitsky noted that Carlson’s firing follows Fox News’ $787.5 billion settlement last week with Dominion Voting Systems, the defamation lawsuit the network still faces from Smartmatic, plus Carlson’s whitewashing of January 6th.

“Our beloved Tucker Carlson has been fired, it’s a disgrace!” Dmitry Drobnitsky exclaimed. This was met with Vladimir Solovyov’s input: “It’s a total outrage!”

“Tucker, come work with us!” He said. “Solovyov Live is waiting for you.”
