Tucker Carlson is very angry that Brian Stelter is saying the police found no evidence of a crack in his door, as many right-wing sites were reporting.
Carlson lit into Stelter, and didn’t deny the report:
“CNN has repeatedly defended Antifa, and you are doing it again now,” he said in a statement through Fox News. “Your story is a disgusting attempt to minimize an attack on my family and bring more pain to my wife and four children. I’m not playing along. I hope you’re ashamed of yourself. You should be.”
Here’s what Stelter said:
Many members of the media, myself included, condemned the Antifa protest at Tucker Carlson’s home. But there’s one claim that has been contested. Carlson said a protester cracked his front door. I asked DC police. The police said they saw no sign of that. https://t.co/EeXuCxB7KN

These lying liberals even went and took pictures of Tucker’s door to try to prove that he lied!!! What a bunch of jerks!!!https://twitter.com/tarikapowell/status/1061325742301044736
And a lot of people are noticing that it’s not the best move:
Tucker Carlson lied about that mob who went to his home and terrified his wife and kids. Good job media guy @brianstelter. Please do run with this.

Yeah, I mean kinda. I definitely think his wife was terrified by what happened, and I’m glad most people are denouncing it. Miller is a little inaccurate though, the kids weren’t home at the time. Now everyone go get outraged all over again. It’s our favorite pastime!! #MAGA!!!
Have yourself an open thread, as my present to you.
