(Daily Caller) Fox News host Tucker Carlson called out Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York Tuesday in response to what he said was a “call for censorship.”
“Chuck Schumer went on the Senate floor today to explode and to say that showing that video, evidence of wrongdoing by the federal government, including the security forces, the police department that Nancy Pelosi personally controlled, letting the public see any of that is a threat to democracy,” Carlson, a co-founder of the Daily Caller and honorary board member of the Daily Caller News Foundation, said.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a primetime cable news anchor manipulate his viewers the way Mr. Carlson did last night,” Senate Majority Leader Schumer claimed Tuesday morning from the Senate floor after the Fox News host aired video footage of the Jan. 6, 2021 riot.
Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, the speaker of the House, provided Carlson access to over 41,000 hours of video footage of the Capitol riot, Axios reported. Previous reports indicated that the amount of footage was 14,000 hours.
