Tucker Carlson Releases 2-Hour Interview With Vladimir Putin

It is Putin’s first formal interview with a Western media figure since he began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The interview ― Putin’s first formal sit-down with a Western media figure since he began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine ― stretched more than two hours. Putin spent the first 30 minutes explaining the history of Russia and Ukraine at the end of World War II before calling American efforts to further fund Ukrainian defense a “cheap provocation” by the United States.

Putin said he remained open to negotiations with Ukraine to end the conflict but claimed the U.S. was using the country as a proxy and stymying efforts to find a resolution.

“We’re willing to negotiate,” the Russian president said. “It is the Western side, and Ukraine is obviously a satellite state of the U.S. It is evident.”

The interview immediately sparked condemnation from Democratic lawmakers and other media outlets who cast it as a means for Putin to reach a growing far-right faction in the Republican Party. Former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) called Carlson a “traitor” while others said the decision to interview Putin was “unbelievable.”

Interesting that virtually the only objection Tucker had was to ask Putin to release that WSJ journalist. That seems like it was a manipulative and tactical suck up to the media because the only front-page articles about this on the big outlets that I checked are about this (he's a journalist and 'one of their own' which is why they care) . Aside from that his interview isn't getting a lot of positive reporting even in the right wing media.

In case Tuckums didn't notice, there was an implicit threat in the interview where Putin accused him of blowing up Nord Stream. Tuckums jokingly responded, “I was busy that day”. Putin responded, “You personally might have an alibi, but the CIA has not such [alibi]”, using the feint as an opportunity to throw shade at the CIA. Yet it was far from an idle joke. Imprisoned Evan Gershkovich is a journalist, as Tucker Carlson is thought by some to be, and should Putin decide to imprison him - any false charge, like blowing up Nord Stream, would do, regardless of whether it was in any way probable - he could simply do it, if he thought there was some advantage to it.

If Putin imprisoned Tuckums, IMO, we should let him have him. But Tuckums would do well to stay the fuck out of Russia from now on.

R17, are you crazy or senile or just very young? Do you think any American journalist in 1989, offered an opportunity to interview Mikhael Gorbachev, would have turned it down? Do you think a serious journalist today (not that Carlson is a serious journalist) would turn down the opportunity to interview Putin?

For that matter, do you think an American journalist, offered a chance to interview Hitler in 1938 or even 1939, would have turned it down? Journalism is not about only reporting news from good people or people journalists approve of. Only in wartime do we censor news from hostile leaders, and – despite what people seem to think here – we are not at war with Russia.

You can argue that it was a bad interview or that Carlson did not challenge Putin. That would be true, but it’s not the same as claiming the mere act of interviewing him was disloyal. The left has become as hysterical as the right these days. It’s insanity, and it will not end well for our country.

I think they'd have needed to run that by the State Department first, or else when they returned to the US, the State Department would have run it by them. And rightly so.

Both journalists - and people who play journalists, like Tuckums - should not be talking to adversarial personages like Putin on their own volition.

You would be wrong, R40, very wrong indeed.. It would be an intolerable interference with the First Amendment right to freedom of the press to require a journalist to get government approval to interview a foreign leader. There are no exceptions in the Amendment for "leaders we don't like". You have a sad and faulty understanding of what freedom means in American terms.

While a journalist would likely tell the State Department, if only for his own safety, and some might allow the government to influence their questions, the State Department cannot stop them. It's shocking that you think they could or should.

You're projecting a very modern take - one might say 𝑇𝑟𝑢𝑚𝑝𝑖𝑎𝑛 - on the First Amendment. Back then, it had not yet been weaponized in ways designed to destroy the Republic it was crafted to protect, as it has been today. And back in the 1930s, appeals to the First Amendment for that purpose may have fallen on deaf ears, whether or not one agrees with that. Appeals to national security tended to outweigh it.

It was quite interesting to see how measured and to-the-point Putin's answers were, but the 30 minute introduction about Russian history was a bit excessive, and Tucker ought to have at least made an effort to delve into some aspects of it so it wouldn't have been so tedious. I would also have enjoyed it more if he had sked Putin about the historical changes that Russia underwent during the 1990s, which were catastrophic and Putin has been instrumental in solving. This man is an economist and getting his insights in neoliberalism and its effects would have been extremely valuable.

By the way, something that I didn't like, either, is Tucker's pathological obsession with isolating and attacking China. I'm glad that Putin basically told him that China is Russia's neighbour, they've had thousands of years of common history and it is in everyone's interest to support China's global commercial initiatives, because the Chinese are only interested in commerce, rather than domination. To highlight this, Putin also mentioned that China has NEVER colonized any other countries or started imperialistic campaigns of any sort.

Regarding the Sino-Vietnamese war, China attacked Vietnam after the Vietnamese invaded Cambodia and toppled the Khmer Rouge, which were being supported by the Chinese.

The “grand invasion” wasn’t grand and it wasn’t thwarted by underwater stakes.

It was a spoiler attack to get the Vietnamese army out of Cambodia, a Chinese ally. And it wasn’t thwarted per se but it did fail in its highest objective — the Vietnamese did not need to pull out of Cambodia. However, the PLA did manage to seize the border area, and won a few battles. The Chinese army performed decently well despite not having fought for 25+ years.

Historian Timothy Snyder has a substack essay explaining all the Putin inaccuracies/exaggerations/outright lies regarding Ukraine’s history that Carlson and his lack of preparation allowed to go unchallenged.

Oh, PLEASE R102! Timothy Snyder is in love with neoliberal Reaganite and Clintonite politics, worships neoconservatives and salivates every time someone mentions the fall of the USSR, how the Russians are very bad and American is the greatest country in history. His point of view is utterly irrelevant; you might as well just get a CIA promotional booklet or invite Victoria Nuland to give her impressions.

R103 Receipts, please? read his books, heard him speak and just finished “Our Malady” wherein he calls for a national healthcare and childcare system in the US. He’s not a neocon by a long shot.

R50 is accurate because it appears that many YouTube clips of the interview are now overwhelmed with pro Russian trolls and pro Trump trolls

^^^anytime someone makes a pro Biden or anti Putin/Carlson comment they are attacked by many. One person even makes a detailed description in a comment response about the functions of Russian bots, what’s triggers them and how to detect their syntax and errors. The trolls go rogue on the person. I’m sure many will say a person is a snowflake for not being able to handle opposition, those are the people that deny swatting exists and want everyone to stay silent. Also, calling people names rather than discussing the actual issues is quite telling. Chris Wallace was great and made a rebuttal to Carlson, and showed a clip from his interview with vladboi where he asked tough questions.

ALL the media coverage of this was has been garbage propaganda, both from the Russian side and from the Ukrainian. The western media has treated this entire affair as an old melodrama silent movie with the mustached black cloaked villain tying the virgin to the railroad tracks and we're supposed to throw popcorn at the screen when he appears.

Trump's renewed encouragement of Russia to attack "delinquent" NATO members (e.g. Poland) came right on the heels of Putin's false narrative that Poland provoked Hitler into attacking in 1939. No surprise to see Trump supporting his hero.

Question...why would Putin claim Poland provoked Hitler? What's in it for Putin? Isn't official Russian history, for very good reason, rather profoundly anti-Nazi?

Perhaps not, R113, but what countries does Russia have to go through to follow Trump's suggestion and get to the, as you put it, "freeloaders"? And once in, will Russia leave?

These recent attacks on Poland are Putin signaling his intentions. I’m sure his enablers in Poland have heard him loud and clear and will ramp up their internal attacks, too.

Putin thinks he can weaken Poland by calling them out and isolating them, using his US boot licking puppet to do so. What we need to do is kick him the cuntbone so hard he slithers back to Moscow and shuts his fucking mouth.

I’m fully on Poland’s side here. We (the US) needs to stop bumbling around like some trapped Roomba and give Ukraine everything they need to kick him right in the teeth once and for all.

He will NOT STOP. EVER. PERIOD.

"We (the US)," as I'm sure you're aware, specifically means Congressional Republicans, i.e. MAGAt Republicans. They're the ones blocking aid (or, as our resident Putin-licker might perversely put it, applying a brake to the out-of-control wokeness of self-determination and sovereign borders).

[quote]R100: The fundies don't think Catholics - the first Christians - are Christians, so you'll have a stretch convincing them that members of the Russian Orthodox church are Christians, too.

[quote]R101: Catholics were not the "first Christians"—the first Christians were obviously those in the churches established in the Eastern Mediterranean. The Roman church gradually diverged from Eastern Christianity, starting in later antiquity.

R101, you're correct to say that "Catholics were not the 'first Christians' - but 'the churches established in the Eastern Mediterranean' weren't exactly homogenous. You seem to be saying that the Eastern Orthodox were first, and that's not correct, either. The first Christians were various gnostic sectarians - Docetists, Valentinians, Simonians, and Marcionites. In the latter half of the 2nd century, the first proto-catholics reacted against these, setting themselves up as a self-proclaimed 'orthodoxy.' 'Catholic' simple meant 'universal' so, in calling themselves that, they pretended to be normative Christianity. Of the earliest Christianities, little has survived beyond what the Church Fathers chose to describe in their writings, and that's been quite tendentious.

The earliest signs of divergence between Western and Eastern Christianities could be discerned in the late 3rd/early 4th centuries, with Roman Christianity's shift to writing in Latin, while the Eastern maintained Greek. The actual schism between East and West did not culminate until the 11th century.

[quote] You seem to be saying that the Eastern Orthodox were first

That's not what I was saying. I said that Roman Catholics were not "the first Christians" because Christian churches (ἐκκλησίαι) in the Eastern Mediterranean preceded the one(s) in Rome and, in any case, the Roman Church didn't begin to emerge as a distinct sect until late antiquity.

As the headline inside the article says, it was more of a cackle than a laugh.

[QUOTE]Look no further than Tucker Carlson. Fresh from his disgraceful 'interview' with Vladimir Putin — a visibly cowed Carlson serving as lapdog rather than seasoned journalist — the former Fox News darling went on Glenn Beck's show, laughing about Navalny and, yet again, defending the monster that is Putin. 'People who say Putin killed [Navalny] are idiots', Carlson said.

by Anonymousreply 130February 22, 2024 1:32 AM

Well, he's right. Navalny died of sudden death syndrome. Much like Prigozhin died of sudden plane-crash syndrome, and all those Russian reporters died of sudden falling-out-of-window syndrome. Only an idiot would think there was anything suspicious about any of those deaths.

Tucker reminds me a bit of Hart Bochner’s character ( but less savvy, more cowardly ) in Die Hard. Hans Gruber put an end to him though. Putin probably wanted to do the same to Tucker.
