For irony’s sake, we wish it were NBC News and not CNN that placed a reporter in front of a huge blaze in Kenosha with the chyron, “FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING.” Why don’t they describe the January 6 “insurrection” as a “mostly peaceful” protest?
We thought this might be an opinion piece, but no, it’s straight news reporting from Sahil Kapur.
Tucker Carlson, with newly released video provided to him by Speaker McCarthy, falsely portrays the Jan. 6 riot as a peaceful gathering. https://t.co/7S6e5U2273

Were there riots on January 6? Of course — the January 6 select committee made certain that we saw footage of citizens taking on law enforcement. No one is saying there wasn’t violence. But let Fox News’ Tucker Carlson show footage of Capitol Police escorting the QAnon Shaman around the building — something we hadn’t been shown — and suddenly he’s a riot denier. It’s crazy how many journalists seem to be against making security footage public.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday released security video from the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, using footage provided exclusively to him by Speaker Kevin McCarthy to portray the riot as a peaceful gathering.
Carlson focused Monday’s segment on promoting former President Donald Trump’s narrative by showing video of his supporters walking calmly around the U.S. Capitol. He asserted that other media accounts lied about the attack, proclaiming that while there were some bad apples, most of the rioters were peaceful and calling them “sightseers,” not “insurrectionists.”
“The footage does not show an insurrection or a riot in progress,” Carlson told his audience Monday. “Instead it shows police escorting people through the building, including the now-infamous ‘QAnon Shaman.’”
Kapur notes that Carlson, for some reason, didn’t show us the footage we’ve already been shown by the January 6 committee.
You are such clownish propagandists.

I mean, he played video showing peaceful protesting, no?

Over the 10k people who attended how many were convicted for trespassing?

So you didn’t watch the show, apparently. He showed violent footage too, but he also showed what you’ve all [email protected] is not the liar here. You are.

Oh? You mean like the “mostly peaceful protests” you reported on for Black Lives Matter and Antifa?
Go play. You gave up any credibility years ago.
All @TuckerCarlson did was play the tapes. Any 3rd grader could see what you had peddled was a lie.

Obviously you failed to watch. He never said that.

Tucker didn’t “portray” anything. He showed actual video footage.

STOP, just STOP.
They LIED to the American people and YOU and the MSM went along with it.

You are losing this game NBC. We see right through you.

Y’all should be embarrassed. Journalism has become a joke.

NBC—perhaps the most corrupt and with deepest ties to the deep state of all the fake news networks.
— James Borgstrom (@BorgstromJames) March 7, 2023
We’re beginning to wonder.
Just because you can lie to us doesn’t mean you should. Trust in American media is GONE.

This is fake news. This is also why you weren’t given the footage to review. @NBCNews are acting as shills for the government. Think about that for a second. The media are simply government propagandist. This is not what the freedom of the press was supposed to mean.

You’re fake news clowns.

Obviously you found the actual video too damning to your story or you would have included it, because the video shows that NBC is being less than honest.

NBC News is really outdoing itself lately to shift to pure activism. We thought Kapur was slightly respectable, but no longer.
