Tucker Carlson blasts his own publisher for pulling Sen. Josh Hawley’s book

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has fearlessly tackled the issue of censorship and attacks on free speech launched not only by the government but by left-wing corporate America.

On Thursday, Carlson confirmed that his new book will include sections about the recent censorship of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) earlier this year by Simon & Schuster, the same publishing company releasing Carlson’s book, Breitbart reported.

The censorship of Sen. Hawley

Carlson began a segment on his show Thursday by recounting how, in the aftermath of Hawley’s vote against certification of President Joe Biden’s electoral victory, he had been named enemy number one by the ideological left and faced severe consequences for his action, including having Simon & Schuster cancel the senator’s book on Big Media censorship that was about to be published.

“Simon & Schuster is not the government. It is a private company,” Carlson said. “But Hawley’s point of the First Amendment is real — what good is free speech if you can’t exercise it?”

“But for me personally, what happened to Josh Hawley was more than an academic question,” Carlson continued. “At the time his book was canceled, I was also under contract to produce a book for Simon & Schuster — a collection of magazine journalism. Simon & Schuster was paying me to do it, but it still seemed cowardly not to address directly what they had just done to Josh Hawley.”

Interviews with company executives

“So, I called the head of the company, the CEO, Jon Karp, and I told him that I thought canceling a book for partisan reasons was disgusting and wrong, and it set a very bad precedent for American publishing,” Carlson said.

“Then I told him I wanted to write about what he had done in my new book as a kind of snapshot of what was happening across the country,” he continued. “So, I started to report on it.”

“In the end, I interviewed Jon Karp and other Simon & Schuster executives at some length and on the record. I asked them: under what circumstances are you willing to censor the political views of your authors?” the Fox host said. “It turned out to be an amazing series of conversations.”

“They were highly uncomfortable, as you can imagine, but fascinating. Their answers — some of them honest, some of them lies — revealed in the clearest possible way how Corporate America undermines free speech and the country itself,” he added.

Account of censorship will be published

“Last week, Simon & Schuster confirmed that they will publish my account of their censorship,” Carlson said. “CEO Jon Karp has said he will come on this show to explain what he had done and attempt to justify it. We assume he will keep his word. We hope so.”

“That book comes out of the week of August 10. You can preorder it now,” he added of his upcoming book, The Long Slide.
