Tulsi Gabbard To Launch Show On X

Tulsi Gabbard To Launch Show On X

Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard will launch a new show on X.

Gabbard made her announcement in a Tuesday video shared to the platform.

"Free speech is something that a lot of us have taken for granted throughout our lives. It is fundamental to our rights we have as Americans," Gabbard said. "Unfortunately, we live in a time where free speech is under attack."

"Lifting up your voice in dissent or challenging or even having a dialogue or debate is not only discouraged — it can be cause for retaliation or cancellation or censorship," she added. "We must defend our right to free speech by using it."

Gabbard announced her partnership with X and lauded owner Elon Musk's defense, celebration, and encouragement of free speech on the platform.

"I'm looking forward to launching some projects with them where I'll tell the stories and tell the truth about what's happening here in our country and around the world," Gabbard continued. "The truth that most often those in power don't want us to hear."

The former Hawaii representative said she will also share a series of films that "lift up the voices of those who are most negatively impacted by the decisions of those who are in power."

X Business said they were excited for the platform's partnership with Gabbard.

"Welcome to the family!!!" said X CEO Linda Yaccarino.

Gabbard joins several other media personalities who have launched shows on X, including former CNN host Don Lemon who also announced he was launching his own show on the platform on Tuesday.

"I've heard you ... and today I am back bigger, bolder, freer!" Lemon wrote. "My new media company's first project is The Don Lemon Show. It will be available to everyone, easily, whenever and wherever you want it, streaming on the platform where the conversations are happening."

Lemon said the show will available first on X, noting the platform was "the biggest space for free speech in the world."

"I know now more than ever that we need a place for honest debate and discussion without the hall monitors," he concluded. "This is just the beginning, so stay tuned."

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who was infamously let go from his former network on the same day as Lemon, also launched a show on X, then Twitter, last May.

In December, Carlson announced the launch of his own independent media company called the Tucker Carlson Network (TCN).
