Fox News's Tucker Carlson is throwing his boss's network under the bus while Dominion Voting Systems is suing for a whopping $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit. It's been revealed that many Fox News personalities knew that the conspiracy theories about the 2020 election were false, but they continued to feed their viewers false information.

Tucker Carlson is one of those Fox News stars. He obtained footage of the January 6 attack on our Capitol, thanks to Kevin McCarthy. And then he literally lied to his viewers -- again.

"On January 6, two years ago, thousands of protesters walked from a Trump rally on the Ellipse-side of the White House to the U.S. Capitol, where the certification of the presidential election was underway," he said. "The protesters were angry. They believed that the election they had just voted in had been unfairly conducted. And they were right."

"In retrospect, it is clear the 2020 election was a grave betrayal of American democracy," he added. "Given the facts that have since emerged about that election, no honest person can deny it."

Rupert Murdoch did exactly that. Under oath, he admitted that the election wasn't stolen, that the result was legitimate and that he could have reined in the Fox commentators who kept flogging the stolen election claims, but he didn't. "Not red, not blue. It is green," Murdoch said, by way of explanation about why Fox News continued to push the lie that the election was stolen.

Carlson said that the protesters were orderly and meek and that the Trump supporters "revered" the Capitol.

Sorry, TV dinner heir, this is not normal. These are not sightseers.

Go fuck yourself, Tuckems.
