Liz Cheney: Tucker Carlson Spews Lies That Provoked Jan. 6 Violence

“As Fox News knows, the election wasn’t stolen, and January 6 was not a “false flag” operation,” Cheney tweeted

Fox News Media has put out a promotional video teasing an upcoming episode of anchor Tucker Carlson’s mini-series “Tucker Carlson originals.” 

The episode will air on the network’s streaming platform, Fox Nation, analyzes the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and implies telling “the true story behind 1/6.” 

“The helicopters have left Afghanistan, and now they’ve landed here at home,” Carlson says in the promotional video. “They’ve begun to fight a new enemy in a new war on terror.” 

Nonetheless, this episode isn’t sitting well with various people, including Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.), one of several Republicans blasting Fox News for airing this episode. 

“It appears that Fox News is giving Tucker Carlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6,” Cheney tweeted. “As Fox News knows, the election wasn’t stolen, and January 6 was not a “false flag” operation.”

Carlson didn’t take the comments made by the representative quietly as he responded on his show

“Until yesterday, she and Nancy Pelosi had a monopoly on how Americans were allowed to understand January 6. Unfortunately for them, that’s not how a free society works. Politicians don’t get to put parameters around your thoughts or conversations. Free people are allowed to ask any question they want,” Carlson said. 

“They can follow the facts to their own logical conclusions, and that’s exactly what we set out to do months ago when we began reporting out this story.”

Tucker Carlson Quietly Steps Down from Board of The Daily Caller

The Daily Beast reported Thursday that former Fox News host Tucker Carlson quietly stepped down from the board of The Daily Caller. Carlson co-founded the media organization in 2011 and has held a chair position for over a decade.

Nonetheless, citing an unreported tax filing, the report notes that Carlson disappeared from the board of The Daily Caller News Foundation in 2022. Still, the precise timing is unclear.

Carlson did not comment on his removal from the board but attempted to diminish The Daily Beast and the reporter.

“You’re still working for The Daily Beast? How old are you?” Carlson asked. 

Tucker Carlson and The Daily Caller had kept the news hidden until recently. The nonprofit submitted its annual registration with the state on December 7, 2022, and Carlson’s name appeared as a director. 

The nonprofit did not include his name in the annual registration they filed earlier this month. Additionally, on their September 2022 tax return, they omitted to list him as a board member.

Neil Patel, co-founder and chairperson of The Daily Caller, has been serving on the board with Carlson since the beginning. He expressed in a statement to The Daily Beast that Carlson was too busy for his five-hour-a-week board position and had reached his term limit without providing any additional explanation.

“We love Tucker,” the statement said. “He’s our founder. His board term was up and he’s busy with his new projects, so we moved him to an honorary role.”

MSNBC has reportedly canceled the weekend show hosted by Mehdi Hasan and will expand an existing program hosted by Ayman Mohyeldin, as part of a larger weekend shuffle.

The Mehdi Hasan Show aired on Sundays at 8 PM ET. Additionally, he hosted a Peacock-exclusive program on Tuesdays. After his program’s cancellation, the network plans to use Hasan as an analyst and a fill-in host, according to a report from Semafor’s Max Tani.

MSNBC will launch a new “ensemble” program that will be led by Alicia Menendez, Symone Sanders-Townsend, and Michael Steele. Dubbed The Weekend, the new program will air on both Saturday and Sunday from 8-10 AM ET. As part of the new program, both Symone Sanders-Townsend and Alicia Menendez will relinquish their already existing weekend shows.

“As we emerge from a multitude of historic events these past months, we have an opportunity to build on our accomplishments and keep the momentum going into 2024 and beyond,” MSNBC President Rashida Jones wrote in an internal memo to staffers Thursday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The network is also moving the program hosted by Jonathan Capehart to 6 PM ET on both Saturdays and Sundays. The existing show in that timeslot helmed by Yasmin Vossoughian will end, and she will continue to work as a national reporter.

Alex Witt Reports will expand to three hours as part of the weekend shuffle.
