Billionaire tech tycoon Elon Musk sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for a wide-ranging discussion that will air next week on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
In the interview, Elon Musk will discuss the controversy surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) and how it could change the planet forever.
In preview interviews released Friday, the CEOs of Tesla and SpaceX warned about AI, calling it “more dangerous” than any flawed vehicle.
Elon Musk told Carlson, “AI is more dangerous than bad aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production.” “In the sense that it has the potential, even if one considers that potential to be small, but it is non-trivial, it has the potential for the destruction of civilization.”
Musk will also share the inside story of Twitter and his future plans for the social media platform that he bought last fall.
The two-part program will air next Monday and Tuesday at 8 pm. ET on Fox News Channel.

Throughout his time on Twitter, Musk has clashed with the legacy media. Earlier this month, Musk removed The New York Times’ verified check mark, calling the paper “propaganda.” Days later, he slapped NPR with the label “American state-affiliated media” because it receives government funding. The label was traditionally applied to state-run media outlets in foreign autocracies such as Russia’s RT and China’s Xinhua.
Following criticism from the left, Musk changed NPR’s label to “government funded media”. NPR and PBS, which also received the label, have announced they are leaving Twitter as a result.
