Thursday on MSNBC’s Alex Wagner Tonight, White House press propagandist Karine Jean-Pierre said that Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s coverage of video footage from the January 6, 2021 chaos at the U.S. Capitol shows he does not believe in “truth.”
Asked if the White House considers Fox News to be a news organization (a question designed to delegitimize the only cable news outlet that doesn’t run interference for the Biden administration), Jean-Pierre replied, “So, I’ll say this, when you look at the depositions that have been out there recently, it even states from Fox News leadership, they do not see Tucker Carlson’s show as news or even truthful. That is coming from the Fox leadership. That’s not coming from me. That’s coming from them. And also would quote, paraphrase here, with the chief of Capital police said. He said when you watch Tucker Carlson as it relates to January 6, it is misleading. It is misinformation with the conclusion of what happened on January 6, the attacks that happened.”
False, every word. Misinformation is what the diversity hire Jean-Pierre traffics in.
She added, “As you saw from the president’s statement, 140 officers were injured, nearly 140 officers were injured on that day. It was an attack on democracy. It was an attack on our Constitution, and you cannot whitewash that. Tucker Carlson cannot whitewash that. Anyone who doesn’t see with their own eyes what occurred cannot whitewash that. And so, the president’s going to stand with the police officers. He’s going to stand for truth. And clearly, that is not what Tucker Carlson believes in.”
What the American people have seen with their own eyes is footage that the White House didn’t want them to see — footage that puts their narrative about an “insurrection” to the lie.
