Tucker Carlson: NBC Is The Real Meddler In Election, Not Russia


Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson makes the case that NBC did more to influence the election than Russian did, by being behind the most egregious leaks about President Trump, which we much more damaging than Russian hackers and John Podesta's emails.

At the same time on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow had an exclusive on Trump's tax returns, something she hyped on Twitter an hour before the 9PM start of their timeslots. Maddow's big reveal turned out to be two pages of a 1044 in Donald Trump's 2005 tax return.

Carlson's commentary:

CARLSON: The theory that Russia won the November election for Donald Trump through some vague meddling, so dominates cable news right now it is worth setting up exactly what we know and what we don't know about that story. As of today, there is no evidence that the Russian government tampered with voting machines or hacked any votes in November. There is no evidence that Russia collaborated with Donald Trump or his campaign to win the election. There's no evidence that Russian propaganda swung a single vote away from Hillary Clinton.

There is, in other words, no reason to believe that Russian government changed the course of American political history. There is merely innuendo and conspiracy mongering and connecting probably irrelevant dots. Lee Harvey Oswald spent time in Mexico City, okay, but what does that mean exactly? Nothing significant that we know of. So why does this story persist and grow by the day? One reason is that organizations like NBC News and particularly it's cable outlet MSNBC have gone to remarkable lengths to keep it alive. Ever see their programming?

After Maddow's segment, Carlson responded and called it a "bust."

Viewers don't appear to be happy with MSNBC host's show devoted to exposing 2 pages of Trump's 2005 tax returns - which didn't reveal much news at all:
