Remember, Carlson is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary'.
Fox News Legal defense in multiple cases is always that Tucker Carlson is not a credible news source and that "no reasonable person would ever take him seriously".

Although double vaccinated, double mask wearing Dr Fauci has always struck me as a deceptive little bxstxrd, smug as all get out and willing to say whatever it takes in life to manipulate others to achieve his goals.
Whereas Dr Michael Olsterholm seemed to me to be an infectious disease expert who was a more trustworthy, down to earth kind of guy.

Maybe I can't relate to Brooklyn born and raised Fauci with an Ivy league education that I prefer Olsterholm from Iowa, with advanced degrees from Minnesota. But I was not surprised to learn Fauci is an ex-catholic who describes himself as a humanist with a belief in science rather than a deity. He has always just rubbed me the wrong way.

I am just telling you what Carlson and his lawyers swore to in Court. His defense in more than one defamation case is that no reasonable person would believe him. That is his own argument, not mine.

The bottom line is that Carlson, Cuomo, Hannity, Maddow, and others like them only tell their viewers what they want to hear to get ratings. They are not reporting any news and any statement they make should be taken as such.

“no reasonable person would ever take him seriously".

The same can now be said of Dr. Fauci.

I like how you neo-socialists attack the messenger not the message.
That's also the same defense that Trump's batwing crazy attorney Sidney (Kraken) Powell used a few months ago.

The filing says that the claims Powell made in interviews on Fox News and Fox Business, and in a press conference at the Republican National Committee are not statements of fact. In particular, her claims “that she had evidence that the election result was the ‘greatest crime of the century if not the life of the world,’” or that Democrats “developed a computer system to alter votes electronically” would not be accepted by a “reasonable person” as “statements of fact.”

Powell and her lawyers go further, citing Dominion’s criticism that Powell’s claims were “wild accusations,” “outlandish claims,” “inherently improbable,” or “impossible” as evidence that “reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact but view them only as claims.”

Finally, Powell and her lawyers admit that her claims about voter fraud, stolen elections, or switched votes were “her opinions and legal theories” only.


(We're all still waitin for that kracken to be released, but I hear now, it's gonna happen in August and Trump is going to triumphantly return to the Oval Office)

(Who knew, that the Kraken looked like this?)

Does anyone else find it hard to blindly follow anyone being paid $10-25 million a year to give their version of the news or is it just me? I watch Fox News because they mostly align with my views but some of the ways they present things make me wonder. Some nights Carlson, Hannity, and Ingram are like an angry comedy show.

Could you imagine listening to someone that works for the government, and is the highest paid gov employee, and taking everything they say as gospel.

Mind boggling.
Very true!! There is just too much misinformation out there today. It really doesn’t matter which news station you watch or what you read it all seems to be twisted. There’s a few actors on Fox that I tend to listen/believe more than others though. It also seems that more and more people are buying into conspiracy theories some of which are down right crazy.

Butch if you would just tell him that it appears he gladly changes his opinion about almost anything very quickly and easily.

‘Whenever people in power tell you that fake news is undermining democracy, they really mean that alternative sources of information are challenging their grip on power.’
In fact, the most dangerous component of ‘MSM’ fake news is arguably propaganda by omission. In ostensible ‘democracies’, the public cannot make informed decisions, and take appropriate action, when the crimes of ruling elites are kept hidden by a complicit media.
