Tucker Carlson: CNN is a More Powerful “Disinformation Network” Than QAnon
Tucker Carlson has always been more than willing to spread false information on his show. Since Donald Trump lost the election in November of 2020, the Fox host has become increasingly unhinged. It is not known if this is a reaction to the network’s fading ratings.
Last night, the focus of Carlson’s show was the Conservative conspiracy theory of QAnon. The Fox host wondered if the theory even exists. If it did, Carlson said, it is nowhere near as dangerous as competing network CNN.
Carlson claimed, “So it’s worth finding out where the public is getting all this false information. This disinformation as we’ll call it. So we checked. We spent all day trying to locate the famous QAnon. Which in the end we learned is not even a website. If it’s out there, we couldn’t even find it. Then we checked Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Twitter ’cause we have heard she traffics in disinformation, CNN told us. But nothing there.”

The Fox host then went on the attack. “It takes a sophisticated operator to lie this effectively, to take the central problem of American life, which is the agonizing death of our middle class and cover it with a smokescreen of manufactured race hatred, so that no one even realizes it’s happening. You’d really need to be a — as CNN would put it — a disinformation network to pull that off. And of course the irony is… CNN itself has become a disinformation network, more powerful than QAnon and far more destructive.”
