Liar or moron, those are the available options.
In Tucker’s defense (?) his staffer most familiar with right-wing message boards was fired for his posts on right-wing message boards.
Anyway he should check in with the also-dumb Jesse Watters, who seemed fully aware last year of both QAnon’s “crazy stuff” and its “great stuff.” ImageImage

Ah yeah when I think of Fox News I definitely think of consistent support for mask-wearing.…
These images are from last night.
Laura Ingraham: "The answers to these questions go directly to exposing some of the big covid lies that our press are either too stupid or too biassed to uncover for themselves."

Fox News, for example, has repeatedly aired clips from his 2009 CPAC speech, not particularly revealing comments he made on his radio show..
The obit quotes the CPAC speech, his final 2020 broadcast in which he discussed his prognosis, some autobiographical quotes he made on-air, and this reference to the McNabb incident.… Image

The first person to bring the "frozen wind and solar caused the Texas grid failure" canard to Fox was Steve Moore on Monday morning.
That evening, Tucker Carlson discovered the real villain -- the Green New Deal.
And because he's basically running Fox, that was all the network talked about yesterday.
