    Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called out CNN's Brian Stelter and a columnist for The Washington Post on Monday over a tweet that took aim at Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

    Dorsey referenced a tweet from Stelter that stated: "Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing, @pbump says: 'He's selling doubt...'"

    The column, from left-wing Washington Post columnist Philip Bump, highlighted an episode of Carlson's new short-form documentary series called "The End of Men."

    Dorsey responded to the tweet by asking in a tweet, "and you all are selling hope?"

    In the column, Bump claims that Carlson's video "is a weird combination of homophobia and homoerotica" and that Carlson's "ultimate destination is the same: White Americans, particularly older men, are embattled in an increasingly hostile culture and he is giving them the tools to fight back."

    When a reporter claimed that Dorsey was "defending" Tucker Carlson, Dorsey responded, "Not defending a thing. Holding up a mirror."

    Dorsey made news over the weekend when he slammed the Twitter's board of directors as entrepreneur Elon Musk, the world's richest man tries to take over the company.

    Dorsey was responding to the following tweet when he made his remark, "If look into the history of Twitter board, it's intriguing as I was a witness on its early beginnings, mired in plots and coups, and particularly amongst Twitter's founding members. I wish if it could be made into a Hollywood thriller one day."

    Dorsey responded, "It's consistently been the dysfunction of the company."

    Dorsey also said "big facts" in response to the following statement from venture capitalist Fred Destin: "What I do know for sure is that this old Silicon Valley proverb is grounded in age-old wisdom that still applies today: Good boards don't create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time."

    When later asked if he was allowed to speak like this publicly given the fact that he is still on the company's board, Dorsey responded, "No."

    Twitter has attempted to stop Musk from taking over the company by adopting a so-called "poison pill" that effectively allows all shareholders, except those trying to buy out the company, to purchase newly offered shares at a discounted price.

    Musk would have to purchase the new shares at a higher price, which could end up being too much for him to afford, if he wanted to take over the company. Despite throwing a massive roadblock in Musk's way, the adoption of the poison pill would not bar Musk from being able to buy the company, it would only make it harder.

    Musk revealed during a TED Talk last week that he had a plan in place if Twitter blocked his attempt to buy the company.
