During a Friday night monologue analyzing the State Department’s Russia policy, Fox News host Tucker Carlson demolished the department’s credibility while supporting Infowars founder Alex Jones.
Carlson slammed State Department spokesperson Ned Price for accusing Russia of planning a “false flag operation” in Ukraine without evidence in his Friday speech on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
As Carlson explained, reporter Matt Lee invoked Alex Jones when probing into the State Department’s claim that Russia was preparing to stage a false flag as a pretext to invade Ukraine:
MATT LEE: This is like crisis actors, really? This is like Alex Jones territory you’re getting into now. What evidence do you have to support the idea that there is some propaganda film in the making?
NED PRICE: This is derived from information known to the U.S. Government, intelligence information that we have declassified.
The difference between Alex Jones and Price, according to Carlson, is that Jones is actually credible.
“One correction, Alex Jones lies far less and is far more credible than Ned Price is. You see the point. Ned Price lost that exchange,” Carlson noted. “He claimed to have information that he did not have, and Matt Lee persistently called him out on it. So Ned Price ran out of B.S. The B.S. barrel was empty.”
“So what did Ned Price do then? Ned Price did what they all do when they are cornered. He went right to the lowest personal attack. He didn’t call Matt Lee racist – he’s probably saving that for next week – but he did suggest Matt Lee is more sympathetic to Russia than he is to his own country, the United States. He implied Matt Lee is a shill for Vladimir Putin,” Carlson has concluded.
