Russell Brand: Why Is Tucker Carlson On FOX News The Only TV Host Who Will Invite A Leftist Like Glenn Greenwald On Air?
By Tim Hains
English comedian Russell Brand wondered why FNC’s Tucker Carlson is the only person on TV featuring anti-war and leftist voices like Glenn Greenwald.
“Isn’t it interesting that Tucker Carlson is the only person who will have Glenn Greenwald on? He’s the only person who will attack Big Business,” he said. “What interests me is that FOX News used to be a channel that we continually berated and baited when it was like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity and those guys… But now if you want a channel who will criticize Big Tech, big corporations, and the mainstream media in general, peculiarly, you’re most likely to find that on FOX News.”

“Why don’t we have a leftist mainstream media outlet that would showcase voices like Jimmy Dore?” Brand asked.
