Mehdi Hasan Nails on why Tucker Carlson’s latest report ‘doesn’t add up’


In the message, reported by the New York Times, Carlson described seeing video of three white men attacking an “Antifa kid.” He said the men were “dishonorable” because “white men don’t fight like that.”

Carlson also admitted that he wanted them to murder the child and then seemed to feel bad about that desire.

Hasan told MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace that “you can’t be shocked by this stuff,” but added that it’s “not that surprising” given Carlson’s story.

The network stood by him instead.

Hasan also noted other racist comments made by Carlson on the air.

“You just have to ask yourself, hasn’t the Fox board of directors been watching ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ for the past few years?” he asked, adding:

“It’s been five years, Nicolle, since the Daily Stormer – the neo-Nazi website – said Tucker Carlson is our greatest ally, and ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ is basically Daily Stormer: The TV Show. I’m not sure the Fox board was paying attention when they said that five years ago.”

“I guess that’s not the whole story,” he concluded.

Fox News split from its star host last week, just days after the right-wing network agreed to pay $787.5 million to settle a defamation lawsuit alleging lies about the 2020 presidential election.

It didn’t give a reason.
