(Republican Leader) – There’s little doubt in my mind that Fox News absolutely regrets firing popular conservative host Tucker Carlson with every fiber of their being. He is now in the middle of launching his own media platform and has already managed to land a pretty sweet ad deal with an anti-woke Amazon alternative that is willing to hand over seven figures in order to be featured on his content. Folks, that is utterly amazing and is a testament to how popular Carlson has become and how important his voice is to the average American. There aren’t many voices in the media that can be trusted to tell the truth and ask the hard questions. But Tucker Carlson does, and that’s why people love him.
BizPac Review writer Kevin Haggerty reports, “With nine episodes released since premiering “Tucker on Twitter” in early June, the former primetime host has shaken up the media landscape garnering roughly a collective 500 million views for his content. Sunday, fresh off another paradigm-busting performance interviewing presidential candidates at the FAMiLY Leader Summit in Des Moines, Iowa, Carlson appeared poised to prove the profitability of his independence.”
“Carlson agreed to a seven-figure advertising deal with Public Square (PublicSq.), a shopping app that promotes itself as being the ‘starting point’ for conservatives to battle environmental, social and governance policies, according to people familiar with the matter,” CNBC stated.
PublicSq, a competitor for Amazon, is supposed to go public this week and will ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Just ahead of that event, the company said, “At PublicSq, we strive to provide meaningful solutions, and we are thrilled to introduce yet another solution to individuals and business owners who steadfastly believe in America’s greatness and are committed to its prosperity.”
“By going public, ‘We the People’ will not only be able to patronize businesses that share their values, but in turn also invest in companies that uphold their values. We firmly believe that America is worth fighting for, and going public serves as a powerful means for individuals to actively participate in shaping the future of our great nation,” the statement went on to say.

Ad revenue from the company isn’t the only major influx of money for Carlson and his new venture. PublicSq is going to be completing a merger with Colombier Acquisition Corp. It’s being reported that the CEO and board chairman of the company, Omeed Malik, is planning to provide financing for the pundit’s media platform through his own private investment firm, 1789 Capital.
The CEO for PublicSq, Michael Seifert, spoke with Breitbart News a month ago, explaining the company’s mission, saying, “So there’s really this cool parallel economy ecosystem that’s been created. And it all starts with consumer spending. We hate ESG, we hate DEI, we talk about these policies all the time in the news.”
“But the only way that we are going to topple those corrupt philosophies that are destroying our economy is by shifting consumer spending. And so we’re offering the easiest directory out there to go and do that as your starting point,” he added.
“However, Carlson’s separation from his previous employer has not been without its own difficulties as the network had reportedly issued a cease-and-desist letter asserting that his exercise of free speech on Twitter was somehow a breach of contract. The former Fox News host had signed a deal that extended through Dec. 31, 2024. Notable backers of PublicSq, expected to have ads running on Carlson’s Twitter show in August, included Donald Trump Jr. and former Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters,” the piece concluded.
