Cuomo Accuses Tucker Carlson of Selective Editing in Jan. 6 Video

Chris Cuomo and Tucker Carlson Clash Over Capitol Attack

During a recent national television appearance on NewsNation, anchor Chris Cuomo and ex-Fox News host Tucker Carlson engaged in a heated discussion about the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack. This marked Carlson’s first TV appearance since his departure from Fox News.

Cuomo Confronts Carlson

Cuomo challenged Carlson’s interpretation of the events surrounding the insurrection, accusing him of selectively using security footage provided exclusively to him by then-Speaker Kevin McCarthy. Cuomo expressed his disagreement with Carlson’s characterization of the attack as simply individuals being in the wrong place at the wrong time, emphasizing his belief that it was a riot incited, in part, by the former President of the United States.

Transparency and Opinions

Carlson responded by acknowledging that some aspects of the Capitol attack could be described as a riot. He raised concerns about the lack of transparency regarding the presence of federal agents during the insurrection, despite the FBI’s denial of any involvement in instigating the events. Both Cuomo and Carlson agreed on the importance of transparency in understanding the full scope of what occurred that day.

Carlson’s Departure from Fox

Carlson, who parted ways with Fox News following legal controversies related to false claims of election fraud made by former President Trump, highlighted the need for more transparency around the events of January 6. Cuomo, who was fired by CNN amid his involvement in a harassment case against his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, joined NewsNation following his departure.

Upcoming Discussion and Topics

The conversation between Cuomo and Carlson is set to air on Monday at 8 p.m. The discussion is expected to cover Carlson’s exit from Fox News, recent criticism over his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Capitol attack, and other relevant topics, as announced by NewsNation.
