Tucker Carlson on January 6th Hearings: "They Are Lying And We Are Not Going To Help Them Do It"

Tucker Carlson lambasted the House January 6th Committee for holding a primetime hearing while gas prices are through the roof and the country is facing nuclear war on the Thursday broadcast of his FOX News program. Carlson explained why he will not be covering it in a monologue. CARLSON: It tells you a lot about the priorities of the ruling class that the rest of us are getting yet another lecture about January 6th tonight from our moral inferiors, no less. An outbreak of mob violence, a forgettably minor outbreak by recent standards that took place more than a half ago but they've never stopped talking about it. In the meantime, in the 18 months since January 6th, gas prices have doubled, drug ODs have reached their highest point ever, the U.S. economy is careening toward the devastating recession at best, and scariest and least noted of all, this country has never in its history been closer to a nuclear war. If the other networks cannot be bothered to cover any of that tonight, instead they've interrupted their regularly scheduled programming to bring you yet another extended prime time harangue from Nancy Pelosi and Liz Cheney about Donald Trump and QAnon. The whole thing is insulting. In fact, it's deranged and we 're not playing along. This is the only hour on an American news channel that will not be carrying their propaganda live. They are lying and we are not going to help them do it. What we will do instead is try to tell you the truth. We've attempted to do that since the day this happened. We hated seeing vandalism at the U.S. Capitol a year and a half ago and we said so at the time, but we did not think it was an insurrection because it was not an insurrection. It was not even close to an insurrection. Not a single person in the crowd that day was found to be carrying a firearm. Some insurrection. In fact, the only person who wound up shot to death was a protester. She was a 36-year-old military veteran called Ashli Babbitt. Babbitt was just over 5 feet tall, she was unarmed. She posed no conceivable threat to anyone. But Capitol Hill Police shot her in the neck and never explained why that was justified. Those of the facts of January 6th.
