Who is Tucker Carlson? Man interviewing Vladimir Putin over Russia-Ukraine War

Who is Tucker Carlson? People, supposedly not in the US but across the world, have been looking for information about the journalist Tucker Carlson who is set to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin about the current situation of the Russia-Ukraine war. 

Tucker Carlson revealed his plans for an exclusive interview with Russian  President Vladimir Putin, promising an uncensored insight into the Russia-Ukraine conflict. With Elon Musk's support, this discussion aims to challenge perceptions and promote transparency. 

Not only this but also Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host accused the Biden administration of trying to sabotage his upcoming interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He alleged that the Biden administration illegally spied on his text messages and leaked them to the media to prevent him from interviewing Putin, three years ago. He was also “pretty certain” that they did the same thing last month, however, he decided to go to Moscow anyway. 

Tucker is doing so because he believes “Americans have a right to know” and that they need to know the other side as well.
