BOMBSHELL: Tucker Carlson Admits He Lies on His Show ‘When Cornered’ But Is Still Employed by FOX

We all know Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and the entire staff at OAN and Newsmax make up what Jim Acosta calls “the bullsh*t factory,” and that Tucker had been the employee of the month. Right-wing media wouldn’t exist without lies. They presume that the left does the same amount of lying (And they consider CNN left-wing, some believe Fox is too “woke” and traitorous to the MAGA cause). But rarely will they come right out and admit they’re lying.

Tucker did just that in an interview and yet he is, as of this writing, still working at Fox. From Huffington Post:

“I mean, I lie if I’m really cornered or something,” Carlson admitted. “I lie. I really try not to. I try never to lie on TV. I just don’t ― I don’t like lying. I certainly do it, you know, out of weakness or whatever.”

Carlson then said there was a difference between spouting “lies” when you’re cornered out of weakness and the systematic lying he claims is practiced by the anchors at CNN.

“So if these people ask themselves why am I doing this? And they say, well, I want to protect the system because I really believe in the system. OK, who’s running the system? You’re lying to defend Jeff Bezos? Like, you’re treating Bill Gates like some sort of moral leader, like, are you kidding me? How dare you do that.”

See? Systemic lying at CNN? CNN makes more mistakes, in this site’s opinion, than MSNBC, but they certainly don’t lie, they issue corrections when they’re wrong.

But let’s talk about “cornered.” It may shock Tucker, but millions of American adults find “being cornered” the most obvious time to just tell the truth, rather than bury oneself deeper into that corner. Lying is the cowards way out and it can hurt people, especially in Tucker’s position. When one lies, it’s usually about someone else, not factual matters.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?

Absolutely sickening, and yet there’s no debate that we’re aware of with regard to Tucker losing his job. His opinions are radical enough. Throw lies on top of that and one has a person that doesn’t belong on television even on Fox. Ha, if he was cornered on the question, he should have lied about not lying.
