Tucker Carlson now claiming his source never got around to telling him that Mueller's offer of immunity to Tony Podesta was only for the Manafort DC trial, not the VA one for FARA violations.

I guess it just slipped the sources' mind.
If it turns out everybody ran around Twitter for 4 days tearing their hair out over a #FakeNews story from Fox News, I'm gonna just sit here and laugh my ass off.
This source waits until 5 names get made public, and Podesta's is not on that list to 'clarify' to Tucker "Oh hey sorry bro, I meant that OTHER trial over there, not this one here."

My BS detector is going off.
"Lay off Tucker, he's a good guy."

Goodness or badness has nothing to do with this. If somebody USED Tucker Carlson to spread a fake story all over the media, then that's what happened.

If all Tucker had was a single source for this info, and the info was bad, he's a big boy.
He should know better than to run a story like that based on a single source. And if the source turns out to be wrong, then Carlson deserves the fallout for this.

His being a good guy or bad guy is irrelevant. He does an important, highly visible job. He needs to get it right.
We had 4 days of hysteria on social media and on TV and on blogs because of what is now looking like a *very* suspect single source that told Carlson something inflammatory.

If this info turns out to be wrong/fake, people need to be held accountable.
There people that used that immunity story to tell me it proved it was time to abandon all hope. That's exactly the effect that story was supposed to have if it was a fake.

Nobody gets a pass. Learn from mistakes, then do better.


I'm now being told Carlson had MULTIPLE SOURCES for this story.

As if somehow that makes it better.
Tucker Carlson had MULTIPLE SOURCES that never got around to telling him WHICH trial Podesta was being offered immunity for until AFTER that list of 5 names was made public.

Then his multiple sources finally got around to telling him this info.
So my BS detector is now going off x 2.

AT least two.

Depending on how many sources Carlson actually had for this immunity story.
