If a company makes a false claim in an advertisement, the government has the power to hold that company accountable and not allow consumers to be fleeced. ...The Democrats are upset that Carlson showed actual surveillance video of what those protesters were doing.
But that's not the case for what we hear on cable news or read on social media (or political ads for that matter). And that was put into stark relief last week when Fox News' Tucker Carlson tried to rewrite history on the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.
Rioters, inspired by former President Donald Trump's lies about the 2020 presidential election that he lost, stormed the Capitol in hopes of trying to stop the ceremonial certification of Joe Biden's win.
Since then, more than 1,000 people have been arrested and are facing charges. More than 500 have been convicted so far for their roles that day.
The story doesn't even make any sense. If the certification were purely ceremonial, why would anyone care that it got disrupted and delayed for a couple of hours?
Yes, 1000 protesters have been arrested. A Black cop shot and killed an unarmed White woman. The Democrats spent two years complaining about the protest, but refused to let us see the video. Carlson showed us the video of what really happened. And the Democrat press is mad about it.
