On Monday, Tucker Carlson shared footage from the January 6 riot that contradicts the narrative presented by many Democrats since the incident.
Carlson’s team reviewed thousands of hours of video footage and uncovered a different account of events from what the January 6 committee has been broadcasting.

During a segment of The View, Whoopi Goldberg expressed concerns about the role of Tucker Carlson and Fox News in what she perceives as recruiting and radicalizing “domestic terrorists” through misinformation.
Goldberg questioned why they are not being scrutinized for their actions. She stated that knowingly lying to the American people should be against the law and that it is unacceptable.
Goldberg has had several controversies throughout her career, including using profanity during a live episode of The View in 2006 while discussing the Bush administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina.
In 2009, she defended director Roman Polanski, who had been arrested for raping a 13-year-old girl in the 1970s, on The View.
Her comments drew criticism from sexual assault survivors and their advocates. In 2019, Whoopi received criticism for defending former Vice President Joe Biden amid allegations of inappropriate touching.
Some viewers accused her of dismissing the concerns of women who came forward with allegations against Biden. While Goldberg raises concerns about the role of media outlets like Fox News in the spread of misinformation, her past controversies may undermine her arguments.
Nevertheless, the issue of media responsibility in shaping public opinion and discourse remains relevant and requires careful consideration.
