There is no media figure CNN hates more than Tucker Carlson.
They will do anything to take him off the air.
And Tucker Carlson just put CNN on blast for colluding with the Deep State to destroy him.
CNN would do anything to have the viewership Tucker Carlson enjoys every day.
While Carlson consistently brings in three million or more average viewers at a time, CNN struggles to even reach one million viewers, averaging 580,000 viewers.
So it isn’t shocking that they consistently attack Carlson and Fox News as a whole.
Their most recent attack on Carlson is based around Fox News’ response to whistleblower claims that the NSA had been spying on him.
CNN alleges that Carlson is “furious” at network executives for “not backing him up.”
But Carlson dispelled that claim, ripping into fake news CNN.
“I’m not mad at anyone at Fox,” Carlson retorted when CNN reached out for comment.
“If I was, I’d say so. I’m mad at you for lying relentlessly,” Carlson said. “What a loathsome person you are. Please print that.”
In the CNN report, they attempt to paint a narrative that the relationship between Carlson and Fox News is tense.
They report that “sources” claim that “tensions are sky high,” and that Carlson has “‘always had tension with’ management, but said right now he’s ‘extra pissed.”
CNN’s report should naturally be taken with a grain of salt.
Not only are they known for pushing fake news stories using questionable unnamed “sources,” this particular narrative is only beneficial for CNN.
With Fox News being CNN’s ideological competitor, any division within the network is beneficial for them.
CNN’s alleged conflict stems from Carlson alleging that the NSA had been spying on emails between him, his producer, and figures they felt could help score an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The NSA issued a rare statement stating that Carlson “has never been an intelligence target of the agency,” but did not explicitly deny the claim Carlson was spied on.
Left-wing outlets jumped on the story to claim that Carlson is a paranoid conspiracy theorist.
But considering the long history of shady and outright illegal actions of the NSA, there is good reason to distrust the agency.
And high-ranking Republican officials are working to get to the truth.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy asked Rep. Devin Nunes on July 1 to investigate whether or not the NSA spied on Carlson.
“Now, there is a public report that NSA read the emails of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Although NSA publicly denied targeting Carlson, I have serious questions regarding this matter that must be answered,” McCarthy’s press release explained.
