On Monday, Tucker Carlson released exclusive footage of the January 6 riot, and it largely contradicted what many Democrats have been lying about since the incident. Carlson’s team had reportedly reviewed thousands of hours of video footage and uncovered a starkly different account of events from that presented by the January 6 committee’s broadcasts.
On Tuesday, Senator Mitch McConnell cited Carlson’s broadcast of the January 6th footage as a “mistake.”
McConnell said “It was a mistake in my view for Fox News to depict this in a way that (is) completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at the capital thinks.”
Elon Musk then responded to the video and slammed McConnell. Musk said, “I keep forgetting what party he belongs to.”
According to the New York Post, the January 6 committee manipulated silent CCTV footage by adding audio of screams and other sounds to heighten the drama. They also allegedly cherry-picked footage to fit their “divisive narrative” rather than presenting a balanced view of events, despite having access to the same footage as Carlson’s team.
