Tucker Carlson accused Twitter on Wednesday of "purg[ing]" political viewpoints one day after the social media platform "fact-checked" a tweet by President Trump opposing mail-in voting during elections.
The "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host opened his show by "stating the obvious," telling his viewers that Trump tweets "an awful lot, and many wish he wouldn't."
"Whether or not its politically wise ... Donald Trump has an absolute right as an American to express what he actually thinks, even if every other person on Earth disagreed with him," Carlson said. "When they used to tell you this was a free country ... thats what they were talking about, the freedom of speech."

“Carlson then turned to the Twitter fact check of Trump, which read in part: “Experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud.”
“As a factual matter, that is a lie,” Carlson said. “And there is no other way to interpret it. But worse than a lie, it is a form of political censorship.””
I disagree with Tucker on one aspect. It is not a “form of” political censorship. It is and was straight up, literal, and purposeful political censorship, period..... especially when said company is partnered with groups pushing mail-in voting/ballots.
Save for later, wanted to try out my tagline
Did anyone else see the profane Donna Brazil rant on The Five yesterday discussing this topic? I was so appalled at her using the Lord’s name in vain then flat out calling President Trump a liar saying Twitter should have deleted his Tweet!
A Lie huh? I though it was a Felonious Illegal In Kind Political Contribution to the DNC and Joe Biden.
The FB dork says we are censoring him, what a load of BS
