TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I'm just fascinated by the hate for Alex Jones. I'm not a daily Alex Jones viewer. I don't view anything regularly, actually. But I think Alex Jones seems really talented. He's smart. He's funny as hell. Truly funny. He's a lot more talented than I am in a lot of ways. That's my takeaway from Alex Jones. But why is he such a threat? Like, why would you hate Alex Jones? I've never understood that.

SAVANAH HERNANDEZ (GUEST): Because he's telling the truth, Tucker. And again, I know Alex personally and I've met a lot of people in this industry, and one of my biggest takeaways is that there are a lot of people, especially in conservative media, that are in this for money and fame they don't actually care about this country. And they don't actually care about America. They're scared about being censored. They're scared about, you know, hurting the wrong people's feelings, not getting the proper endorsement. Alex doesn't care about any of that. Alex cares about the truth.


CARLSON: Yeah, he owns his own company and he has no advertisers, so he's kind of immune. Really, the only way to stop him is by destroying him with lawsuits for giving his opinion, which I guess is now a crime or something in the United States.
