There are few fairer, objective, and rational journalists on cable news today, but most definitely Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is one of them, if not the leader of the pack.
So when he takes a swipe at his own network, it’s definitely worth noting.
Tucker took his jab during his Monday evening monologue after fellow network host Neil Cavuto abruptly cut away from a Trump campaign press conference when they began discussing voter fraud.
Which has happened, by the way, in this election. It’s been documented seven different ways to Sunday.
“We live in a country where a large part of our population no longer believes that our democracy is real. That is sad. It is also dangerous. It could easily get worse. What we are doing in response is hardly the solution. It is making our country much more volatile and setting us up for something bad,” Carlson said as he railed on the ‘mainstream’ media in general for ignoring the fraud.
He went on the chide his network.
“In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens,” Carlson said. “You can’t dismiss them out of hand is crazy or immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like.”
Earlier in the day, NeverTrumper Cavuto cut away from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she started laying out the Trump campaign’s alleged voter fraud case.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear… She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said.
Again, and for the record, loud and clear: Voter fraud has occurred in this election, period.
And it happened despite Cavuto’s attempt, and those by other ‘journalists,’ to claim otherwise.
What a disgrace Fox News has turned into now that it appears their favorite ratings guest, President Donald Trump, may be in election trouble.
