Tucker Carlson recently took a largely unprecedented swipe at his own network for their recent behavior in what was a far-reaching, epic post-election monologue.
In one recent Fox News example, Chris Wallace actually got incensed that Ted Cruz wouldn’t call Joe Biden “president-elect,” a made-up office that doesn’t even exist, much less is it a viable term before the electors cast their votes. Tucker nails that attitude to the wall, noting that it is not his network’s job, nor the job of any news outlet, to ignore legitimate questions from citizens or to declare them improper and unclean.
Tucker didn’t stop there though. He goes into detail about the voter fraud that we know happened, what’s been admitted, and why it’s perfectly acceptable to expose audiences to that information. He also touches on why so many Americans feel angst about how the process is playing out.
But Tucker also does something that far too many people on both ends of the spectrum won’t do, and that’s be honest. He admits that we simply don’t know yet how deep the fraud goes. Was it actually enough to flip all these states in question? I may feel like that’s the case, and no doubt things are sketchy, but anyone claiming a definitive answer on that is telling you what you want to hear, not what’s been fully evidenced and litigated.
Yet, that’s exactly why asking questions and allowing the legal process to play out is so proper. Fox News’ hard news division attempting to suppress charges of fraud is not only unconscionable from the standpoint of spitting in its supporters’ faces, it’s completely improper given the facts on the ground. Let the process play out. That’s precisely what an unbiased news media would be encouraging.
