my first TV appearance
I speak twice in this segment, right at the start, and also in the middle:
The most impactful part of the interview was undoubtedly Dr. Carol Swain's perspective. As the person whose work was plagiarized, her stance in defense of truth was truly courageous. In a sane world, Dr. Swain's remarks ought to have a significant impact on the situation involving Dr. Gay, yet it appears that Harvard's response has been disappointingly indifferent.
For those who have been subscribed to Karlstack for a long time, you might know that public speaking was always something I struggled with. I’ve avoided it for years, turning down every TV/podcast invite I ever got. Heck, I even turned down a couple of Tucker appearances when he was at the peak of his Fox show, simply because I wasn’t ready to speak live. This feels like a big step. I’m ready!
Not for nothing, but since Tucker was fired, Fox’s ratings fell by 19% in prime time, with the major beneficiary being Newsmax. Newsmax ratings are up by 43% year over year.
They invited me back tomorrow, so I guess this went okay. I am struggling to make eye contact with the camera while speaking… I’m working on it.
