Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of former President Donald Trump, is bothered by the fact that Fox News is not amplifying Tucker Carlson’s attempt to rewrite the history of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Carlson, who was given exclusive access to Jan. 6 security footage by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has been accused of cherrypicking the videos to claim the pro-Trump rioters were basically just “sightseers” and not violent insurrectionists intent on overturning President Joe Biden’s victory.
Not surprisingly, Carlson’s view on the attack was met with widespread condemnation in the halls of Congress, where even GOP lawmakers rebuked his claims.
Noticing that no one else on Fox News pushed Carlson’s propaganda, Trump Jr. took to Twitter to demand to know why the network is completely ignoring Tucker.
“Why on earth is the rest of Fox hiding the truth? Fox News is Completely Ignoring Tucker, Don Jr wrote, linking to a Mediaite report saying Carlson’s report is “being quietly buried by the network.”
Twitter users gleefully responded to jr’s question.
Some pointed to newly revealed messages that show Carlson declared he hates Donald Trump “passionately.”
See some of the reactions below.

They know this is the final nail for Fox. What is it, $1.6 billion, plus possible punitive?
I wouldn't doubt if other media don't actually want the tapes anymore either.

.@FoxNews is conflicted big time. They don’t want to cancel their bell cow in drawing viewers and maintaining their high ratings, but silently don’t endorse him, his views and what he reports. Quite the conundrum.

SIMPLE! Because they are being sued for a BILLION DOLLARS for spreading the BIG LIE to their audience, helping your daddy.
Because their pundits, including Tucker, are on tape and in text messages knowing it was a lie and still spreading those lies. Because they are caught!

Hey Junior? You realize Tucker hates you, your Dad, all of you people passionately right? He’s just like all of us. He has his own opinions that lean right, but he’s also able to simply judge what’s going on bc he’s aware.
His job is to make YOU unaware of the things HE is.… https://t.co/SbjELwVeMT
