Liz Cheney blasts Fox News over Tucker Carlson's "Patriot Purge" special

On Wednesday night, Carlson previewed “Patriot Purge,” a three-part documentary series that suggests the January 6th riot was a “false flag,” and liberals are waging some kind of insidious “domestic war” against the right-wing…

A reminder: the riot was perpetrated by Donald Trump’s supporters, who were fueled by lies from the former president that the election was corrupted by mass voter fraud. Carlson facilitated this unsubstantiated claim with his own past assertions that the contest was “rigged.”…

“It appears that Fox News is giving Tucker Carlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6,” Cheney tweeted. “As Fox News knows, the election wasn’t stolen and January 6 was not a “false flag” operation.”

Update: Carlson’s special is airing on Fox Nation, behind an online paywall, not on Fox News.
