Tucker Carlson Criticized by Conservatives for ‘False Flag’ Insinuations Regarding Jan 6

Even some of his fellow Fox News hosts were outraged.

While Tucker Carlson may very well be on top of the conservative news world at the moment, that doesn’t mean that he’s wholly immune to criticism, as evidenced by his latest controversy.

Carlson, in teasing a new exposé on the events of January 6th, mentioned that possibility that the event was a “false flag” attack.

Tucker Carlson, the most popular voice in conservative media, drew condemnation Thursday for the trailer of a new series he plans to debut next week promising to “tell the truth” about the Jan. 6 insurrection, in which one subject appears to float a baseless conspiracy theory that the Capitol riot was covertly orchestrated by the government.

“False flags have happened in this country,” an unidentified female speaker is heard to say in the clip aired on Carlson’s Fox News show Wednesday night, “one of which may have been January 6.”

Carlson said the three-part series will air as a “Tucker Carlson Original” on the streaming service Fox Nation starting Monday. “We believe that it answers a lot of the remaining questions from that day,” he said, arguing that the U.S. government has “launched a new war” on American citizens by prosecuting participants in the insurrection who ransacked the building and attacked law enforcement officers.

The suggestion didn’t sit well with some Republicans.

That outrage came from Republicans as well as from Democrats, and even included a member of the Fox News family. “‘False flags!?’ Bull—-,” wrote Geraldo Rivera, a 20-year veteran of the network who serves as a roaming correspondent-at-large.

Two prominent Republican members of Congress called out the clip on Thursday morning. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., both serve on the U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol.

“It appears that @FoxNews is giving @TuckerCarlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6,” Cheney wrote on Twitter. “As @FoxNews knows, the election wasn’t stolen and January 6 was not a ‘false flag’ operation.” She tagged four company heavyweights in her post, including Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch, Fox News C.E.O. Suzanne Scott, Fox News President Jay Wallace and former House Speaker Paul Ryan, who serves on the board of network parent company Fox Corp.

Theories regarding the makeup of the crowds that day have persisted throughout the aftermath of the event, with some even going so far as to suggest that Antifa and other radical-left organizations may have played a role in inciting the violence to demonize their political opponents.

SEE IT: Man Arrested After Holiday-Themed Arson at Fox News

Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident. 

Published

To say that Americans are politically agitated would be the understatement of the last 140 years, and the evidence continues to pile up in the latter stages of 2021.

We’re at each other’s throats, to be blunt about it.  Not since the Civil War has the nation so viciously despised itself, and the violence inherent to these sorts of conflicts has just begun.

This week’s flagship fracas comes to us from Fox News, where the network’s beaming bastion of the holiday season was torched overnight.

The massive All-American Christmas Tree outside Fox News’ New York City headquarters was seriously damaged in a fire early Wednesday and police say they arrested the man accused of sparking the flames.

Fox News security spotted the suspect, later identified as Craig Tamanaha, climbing the 50-foot-tall tree at the center of Fox Square just after midnight. The Sixth Avenue and 48th Street location is in the heart of Midtown.

NYPD officers arrived at the scene and saw the suspect running from the location. They took him into custody before filing charges that included criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and arson. City firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze.

Images from the incident were soon blasted all over social media.

Chris Cuomo Preparing Massive Lawsuit Aimed at Former Employer

But CNN INSTANTLY put the kibosh on it!

Published

on

Things over at CNN have been rough in recent days, and they certainly aren’t smoothing out anytime soon.

The infotainment network is facing an onslaught of trouble of late, thanks largely to the actions of Chris Cuomo – formerly the top draw at the station – thanks to his inappropriate actions in regard to his brother’s sexual assault scandal during his time as the Governor of New York.

Cuomo has since been fired, and a war of words has erupted between he and his former employer.  Just yesterday it was reported that CNN was rebuking Cuomo’s claims that they were aware of the poor behavior of their primetime star.

Today, Cuomo is setting himself up to sue CNN.

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday.

Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

The network was not entertained by the idea.

But CNN has “no intention of paying [Chris] Cuomo a penny,” an insider said.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source added.

Cuomo has also left his SiriusXM radio program this week, leaving the longtime anchor with no audience to complain to.
