The Canadian Press reported that Carlson’s documentary was set for release, but a Fox spokesperson noted that “there are no further episodes of Tucker Carlson’s Originals running” on Fox Nation. Several other “Tucker Carlson Originals” documentaries remain available to view on the Fox Nation streaming service.
The documentary’s preview focused on Canada is still on Fox News’s YouTube channel.
The documentary features several Canadian parliamentarian members getting arrested, including People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier and prominent members of the “Freedom Convoy” movement, as well as clips of former U.S. presidents calling for the liberation of citizens in Canada and other countries.
“But what if tyranny arrived right next door? What would that look like? And what would our government do in response?” Carlson asked in the preview, adding whether the U.S. would “liberate the people living under authoritarian rule as we have around the world?”
Bernier was arrested for violating public health orders in June 2021 while appearing at several anti-COVID-19 restriction rallies.
Carlson interviewed Bernier not long after his arrest, which took place in Manitoba, Canada. During the interview, Bernier argued that he was jailed for 12 hours over a “non-crime.”
Fox News Media recently issued a press release announcing Carlson’s sudden departure from the network. After firing Carlson, the channel’s 8 p.m. ratings significantly decreased. Several people responded to news of Carlson’s departure by canceling their Fox Nation subscriptions.
Moments after receiving news of his firing, Carlson posted a video on Twitter that has received nearly 80 million views. In it, he criticized the U.S. media and political system.
“Both political parties and their donors have reached consensus on what benefits them and they actively collude to shut down any conversation about it,” Carlson said. “Suddenly the United States looks very much like a one-party state. That’s a depressing realization, but it’s not permanent.”
“Where can you still find Americans saying true things?” Carlson asked. “There aren’t many places left, but there are some and that’s enough. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope. See you soon.”
