Tucker Carlson: The Media Figures Who Pushed This Soon-to-be-Disproved Sham Collusion Conspiracy Theory Should be "Punished"
Mollie Hemingway on Tucker Now

This is from last night. It applies with even more force today.

Now, by "punished," he does not mean "indicted," as he clarifies. He means "publicly shamed" and "forced to apologize."

I normally wouldn't even agree with that... except I remember the left demanding "accountability" from pundits who made erroneous claims and false predictions about the Iraq War. And there was a lot of that in the media.

So: Should conspiracy theorists pushing a falsehood that undermines trust in the US democratic system be similarly required to come to a reckoning?

Answer: No. They control the message, and that means they control the questions that may be asked, and the criticisms that may be lodged.

You don't have to respond to a question or criticism you've suppressed so much that the half of the country you depend on for support never even hears of it.

Carlson also asks, rhetorically: If people on the right had claimed, without evidence, that Barack Obama was colluding with Iran for three years, would they be allowed on any media platform?

He says that's rhetorical. They wouldn't be -- unless they offered a groveling apology to King Barky the Wonderdog.

Definitely watch the opening of last night's show.

Take care! Have a nice weekend!

90 minutes away from entering the official Day 7 of the fast, and no problems!

Oh, and it's weird to put up Tucker from last night when you're probably watching Tucker now -- and Mollie's on now. But check this vid out later, just the first 8-10 minutes.

Can We Stop This Avenue of Conspiracy Theorycrafting Now?



When Fusion Ken says your conspiracy theory is wrong, it's wrong.

BTW: Someone on Fox pointed out that James Comey seemed to have advanced word of this report today. I think Harris Faulkner. Just sayin'.
