Bret Baier confirms his ‘concerns’ about Tucker Carlson’s Jan. 6 documentary

by Mikael Harris

Fox News anchor Bret Baier confirmed he has “concerns” about a documentary produced by the network’s leading prime-time host, Tucker CarlsonTucker CarlsonRittenhouse says Biden defamed his character when linking him to white supremacists Former Trump official knocks conservatives scoring ‘cheap political points’ on Rittenhouse verdict Two Fox News contributors quit over Tucker Carlson’s Jan. 6 documentary MORE, that focuses on the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. 

“I didn’t get hurt by it. I didn’t get damaged by it. Were you bothered by it? Because that’s the reporting,” Brian Kilmeade, who is a co-host of the “Fox & Friends” morning program, asked Baier on Monday afternoon during an appearance on Kilmeade’s radio show. 

“There’s a … Brian, I don’t want to go down this road,” Baier responded. “You know, I mean, there were concerns about it definitely … I think that the news division did what we do, we do when we covered the story.”

Kilmeade was apparently referring to reporting from NPR this week that Baier and Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceRittenhouse says Biden defamed his character when linking him to white supremacists Surgeon general warns of uptick in COVID-19 cases as cold weather arrives Clyburn blames polarization on ‘the advent of social media’ MORE, the anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” shared their objections to Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” documentary series with Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and the company’s president of news, Jay Wallace. NPR reported that the complaints from Baier and Wallace rose to Lachlan Murdoch, the chairman and CEO of the network’s parent company, Fox Corp.

“Patriot Purge,” purports to tell an alternative story of the Jan. 6 insurrection and features at least one subject who suggests the event may have been a “false flag” operation. It has been widely panned. 

Wallace and Baier have both broadcast segments and had guests on their program debunking the so-called false flag conspiracy. 

The reporting on Baier and Wallace’s concerns about the series came as a pair of longtime Fox News contributors quit their roles at the network, saying the publication of “Patriot Purge” was a breaking point for them. 

“Indeed, the news side of Fox routinely does what it is supposed to do: It reports the truth,” Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg wrote in an announcement of their decision, noting it remains the case that “there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinion and analysis” at the network.

“But the voices of the responsible are being drowned out by the irresponsible,” they added. 

Fox News declined comment on the pair’s resignation, but a Fox executive said the network had no intention of re-signing Hayes or Goldberg when their contracts came up in 2022.

Goldberg and Hayes regularly appeared on “Special Report,” the evening news program Baier anchors. During an interview with The New York Times, Carlson called the departures of the two contributors “great news.” 

Baier told Kilmeade it was “sad” to see Goldberg and Hayes go. 

“I think it was a tough choice, but they made their decision on principle,” he said. “It’s sad for ‘Special Report,’ I think for the network, but they made their choice on principle, so I’ll let their statement stand.”
