Tuckercarlson.com | Today, Tucker Carlson serves as the anchor of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the premier primetime cable news show on FOX News Channel (weekdays at 8 p.m. Eastern Time). In 2009, he became a contributing member of the network. The tremendous analysis and perspective Carlson provides on his show each night helps to put what is occurring in America and across the globe into perspective for his viewers.
In spite of opposition from the Anti-Defamation League and reporting from Fox News’ Washington bureau that questions the whole premise of Carlson’s show, the first episode of the three-part series titled “Patriot Purge” became available for viewing on Monday. Several promos for the “Patriot Purge,” which was billed as “The True Story Behind 1/6,” were shown on Fox News.
“Federal agencies have a long history of ensnaring Americans in manufactured plots,” Carlson claims in the documentary, and the Jan. 6 event — which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol police officer — was initially a peaceful demonstration demanding “election integrity” until the crowds were provoked into committing violence, according to the documentary.
Carlson and his crew just debuted the network’s streaming service, Fox Nation, with the premiere of the two main shows. It is an in-depth documentary series in which Tucker Carlson and his producers go to major topics and put them into a clearer perspective. It is produced by Tucker Carlson Originals.
Tucker Carlson is a television personality. Today is a brand-new program that airs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and features a single in-studio guest who engages in a lengthy chat with Carlson that often lasts a whole hour. Both shows may be seen live on FOXNation.com or downloaded as a podcast.
Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson has labeled the assault on the United States Capitol as a “false-flag operation” designed to frame, trap, and “purge” Trump supporters as part of a “new war on terror” in a controversial and conspiratorial documentary series aiming to reinterpret the events of January 6.
Trump’s lawyer continued to urge Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results while the uprising was taking place, according to the evidence before Congress. On Jan. 6, Republican lawmakers and Trump’s own advisors pleaded with demonstrators to disperse, but Trump refused to heed their pleas. In a speech delivered the next morning, Trump urged his followers to march on the Capitol.
A letter to Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of Fox News parent company Fox Corp., was sent last week in which the Anti-Defamation League Chief Executive Jonathan Greenblatt called Carlson’s series “an abject, indisputable lie and blatant attempt to rewrite history” and requested that it not be broadcast.
The series premiered on Fox Nation, a subscription streaming service operated by Fox News, on November 1. It was developed as part of a multiyear arrangement Carlson struck to produce specials for Fox Nation, and it was co-written by Scooter Downey, who has previously directed films for far-right individuals. Carlson was the executive producer. During an appearance on Fox News’ main morning program, “Fox & Friends,” Carlson defended the decision, saying it was “rock-solid factually.”
However, the three-part documentary “Patriot Purge” not only whitewashed what happened on Jan. 6, when supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol, clashed with police, and halted congressional proceedings in an attempt to overturn the 2020 election, but it also distorted the facts of the situation.
