“The idea of Tucker Carlson being in that mob that day and not wetting his pants is hard to imagine,” the CNN host went on to say Tuesday night. “I find it hard to understand somebody who has never put himself in harm’s way in any capacity for anyone else or on reporting a story and yet has the audacity to try to rewrite history. I mean, that’s what this is.”

“Cooper joined Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), in blasting Carlson for twisting details of the Capitol riot into a conspiracy-fueled vision that portrayed the deadly insurrection as a mostly peaceful protest that involved little violence. Carlson has aired clips of mostly-never-before-seen video from Capitol Police security cameras on Jan. 6, 2021, on his show this week after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) granted the Fox News host exclusive access to 41,000 hours of footage,” the report continued.

No matter where you land on the J6 stuff, the bottom line is that there needs to be a close examination of all the video evidence so we can ascertain a complete picture of what exactly happened that day and hold those responsible for it accountable, whether that be individuals who rioted or those who may have participated in stirring up the crowd from the opposite side.
