Tucker Carlson On DC Mass Shooting: Media Only Cares About "Politically Useful Dead Bodies"

|

Twenty-one people were shot at a house party on Sunday in Washington D.C. It went largely unreported on, FNC's Tucker Carlson said Monday.

"Twenty-one people were shot in this single incident ... more than half of them were women. One was a D.C. Police officer. It was the single biggest mass shooting in America this year and yet you probably heard nothing about it," he said. "Members of Congress didn’t lock arms on the House floor to demand an end to the gun violence, CNN didn't book a procession of weepy teenage gun-control activists... news organizations barely touched the story and when they did, they moved fast. "It wouldn't help the Biden campaign to talk about it, so they didn't talk about it."


"As far as we can tell, neither CNN or MSNBC even mentioned it today," Carlson said. "Now they acted like it didn't happen, but it did happen. Twenty-one African-Americans shot by gunmen and yet the media spent all weekend telling you about how Simon Cowell fell off his electric bike in Malibu because really, Black Lives Matter."
