Tucker Carlson contemplates Alex Jones and praises his journalism skills

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called leading conspiracy theorist Alex Jones a good “journalist” on Wednesday and called the Infowars host “innocent of incitement to crime” during the January 6 US Capitol riots.

“The committee is now deciding to shut down one of the most popular journalists on the right, Alex Jones. Yes, a journalist, ”Carlson said during a rant against a special House committee investigating the January 6 attack. The committee recently summoned Jones and other associates of former President Donald Trump to court.

“Jones is often ridiculed for his flamboyance, but the truth is that in recent years he has been a much better guide to reality, in other words, a much better journalist than, say, NBC News National Security Correspondent Ken Dylanian or CBS’s Margaret Brennan. – added Carlson.

Jones is a 9/11 denier who spreads absurd claims on a variety of issues. He profited from his supporters by selling counterfeit COVID-19 drugs and subjected victims of school shootings to scathing bullying, spreading the lie that they were part of the prank. He was found guilty last month in a fourth lawsuit filed by relatives of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Carlson claimed the committee was investigating Jones because he was “making fun of Joe Biden.”

Jones has been active in sowing the seeds of Trump’s “big lie” that the 2020 presidential election was rigged against him. He helped organize the rally of Trump supporters outside the White House that led to a riot in the Capitol, and addressed the participants that day. He also claimed to have provided most of the funding for the January 6 event.

According to Carlson, Jones “is not just innocent of incitement to the crime on January 6, Alex Jones has been actively working to prevent the commission of crimes.”

“We are not going to interfere in the affairs of Alex Jones and do not know about it. We really know this, ”he added.

CNN’s “reliable sources” recently noted that Carlson is more like Jones.

“Whether it’s vaccine conspiracy theories, false flag conspiracy theories, deep state conspiracy theories, the messages that Tucker Carlson and Alex Jones send are the same,” CNN senior reporter Oliver Darcy said. “They seem to agree on the most important issues that are discussed every night.”

“I remember the GOP and Fox News making fun of Alex Jones and saying, ‘This guy is crazy. We’re not going to touch such things. ” But now Fox’s face is Alex Jones. “
