While it's interesting to see Tucker Carlson venture into his own streaming service, it raises concerns about the potential echo-chamber effect.

Carlson has a polarizing reputation and there's a risk that the content might be heavily biased.

Additionally, with the crowded field of news personalities on various platforms, it remains to be seen if this new service can offer diverse perspectives or if it will cater exclusively to a specific audience, further deepening divisions in media consumption.

Carlson has a polarizing reputation and there's a risk that the content might be heavily biased.

Understatement of the year right here. Despite your opinion on politics, we can all agree that his content is heavily represented one sided, but CBX is no place for politics.

The creator side of me is happy to see creators (feels weird to say that about Carlson?) being unafraid to make platforms to serve their content other than the big players (twitch, youtube, etc).

Will I support? No.
