Tucker Carlson doesn’t just trigger the left, he’s also reeling in viewers with Jan. 6 coverage that includes videos the radical left would never want you to see.
Tucker Carlson Tonight attracted 4.1 million viewers total on Tuesday night. This also helped boost prime-time ratings.
“The very strong prime time number was anchored by Tucker Carlson, who brought in 4.14 million total viewers as his show sparked controversy on Monday night for his Jan. 6th coverage. Fox prime time doubled MSNBC’s average of 1.49 million total viewers and brought in more than six times the viewers of CNN. CNN’s prime time average came in at 451,000 total viewers,” Mediaite reported.
Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.N.Y.) had previously asked for Tucker to be censored earlier this week. He stated that Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch has a special obligation “to stop Tucker Carlson’s going on tonight, now that he’s seen how he has perverted and slimed the truth, and from letting him go on again and again and again.”
Critics claim that the footage that was not previously seen was “cherry-picked,” which is unfair considering the amount of work that Democrats put into cherry-picking their version of events on Jan. 6. Select Committee hearings. Among other things, the footage shows Capitol Police escorting the so-called “QAnon Shaman” around the Capitol and letting him into spaces, and other footage shows Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick walking around after the alleged attack, contradicting liberal claims that he was killed in the riot.
