Such is the state of censorship around the globe today that elites who are in power in multiple ways were so enraged by the fact Tucker Carlson interviewed Vladimir Putin that they attacked Carlson, suggesting censorship, travel bans, and more.

It seems that the old journalism trope about interviewing those whose decisions and actions are affecting – even killing – people so the world knows them a little better, is gone.

But even as officials in various countries were suggesting travel bans, and more, against Carlson, X’s Elon Musk was throwing their ideology back in their face.

“Arrest those calling for his arrest!” he charged on his social media platform.

The Daily Caller News Foundation, where Carlson is co-founder, explained there were officials in the European Union who were threatening Carlson with sanctions over his interview.

“Carlson traveled to Moscow and met with Putin for a yet-to-be-released interview about the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and its global perception,” the report said.

One opinion expressed came from Guy Verhofstadt, a former Belgian government official, who said, “As Putin is a war criminal and the EU sanctions all who assist him in that effort, it seems logical that the External Action Service examines [Carlson’s] case as well.”

“Carlson is not being a real journalist since he has clearly expressed his sympathy for the Russian regime and Putin and has constantly disparaged Ukraine, the victim of Russian aggression,” claimed former Estonia foreign minister Urmas Paet to Newsweek.

“So, for such propaganda for a criminal regime, you can end up on the list of sanctions.”

The report confirmed, “Carlson said on Wednesday he did not interview Putin out of support for the dictator but rather because he felt the need to show the U.S. and the West about aspects of the war. Carlson feels that Western media has left important aspects of the war out of their coverage and said most people are either misinformed or not informed at all about the issue.”

He cited Western media for painting in a positive light Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s “demand that the U.S. enter more deeply into a war in Eastern Europe and pay for it.”

A report at Modernity cited Musk’s comment.

“X owner Elon Musk has responded to extremists on the platform calling for journalist Tucker Carlson to be arrested and charged with treason merely for interviewing Vladimir Putinm,” the report said.

The report explained the immediate response was that “leftists, RINOs, Neocons and general haters of free speech piled on, labelling Carlson a traitor, a Russian asset, and calling for him to be arrested.”

Paul Joseph Watson, from PrisonPlanet, exclaimed sarcastically, “Oh no, how dare Tucker Carlson interview a world leader! Arrest him!”

Carlson earlier reported that the Biden administration had been spying on him, and his communications.

The report said, “Rabidly pro-Ukraine shills and globalists are furious that Carlson is once again pushing back against the required narratives and letting people make up their own minds. Now, anti-free speech globalists at the European Union are said to be considering a travel ban for Carlson over the interview, which will air on Thursday night.”

It noted Carlson’s explanation of his journalistic effort: “Most Americans have no idea why Putin invaded Ukraine or what his goals are now. We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin….We are not encouraging you to agree with what Putin may say in this interview, but we are urging you to watch it. You should know as much as you can.”
