Disgruntled Ex Fox News Reporter Suggests Tucker Carlson Should Be Sent to Jail or ‘Something Worse’
By Gregory Hoyt
This hack is spreading misinformation while suggesting someone else should be jailed for spreading facts that don’t fit the narrative.
A former Fox News chief political correspondent has joined the proverbial hate train against Fox’s highest-rated primetime host Tucker Carlson, claiming the rhetoric espoused by Carlson on his program is akin to “screaming ‘fire’ in a crowded movie house.”
In the wake of the Buffalo mass shooting that claimed the lives of ten black Americans, it has become sort of a trend adopted by leftist pundits and politicians to blame Tucker Carlson for what played out in Buffalo on May 14th.
The allegations being trotted out by Carlson’s critics purport that Carlson used his platform on Fox News to spread the “great replacement theory,” which said theory was cited numerous times in the manifesto allegedly written by the Buffalo mass shooting suspect.
Former Fox News chief political correspondent Carl Cameron appeared on CNN on May 21st, where CNN host Jim Acosta asked Cameron, “Do you think the Murdoch family in charge of Fox will ever pull the plug on Tucker?”
Cameron claimed that executives at Fox News would eventually find it to be “difficult” to deal with the flavor of blowback that Carlson attracts, with Cameron likening Carlson’s show and the topics he covers as something that should see the Fox News host arrested.

“Tucker has been screaming ‘fire’ in a crowded movie house for years. And that cliché really comes to the matter of what is free speech? And the fact of the matter is, if you disturb the peace by starting a riot in a movie theater, cops are going to arrest you, and you might end up in jail, or you might end up in something worse.”
It should also be noted that the ‘yelling fire in a crowded theater’ trope is, in fact, not illegal. That expression, which for some reason still gets cited by those condemning free speech, comes from the 1919 Supreme Court decision in Schenck v. United States.
