Fox News does not officially comment on the record, but the right-wing conversational network seems to be quietly trying to distance itself from 1/6 of Tucker Carlson’s truth.
This is the way out of this story by David Covucci of the Daily Dot. He wrote on Friday that after his agency published the story of Carlson’s special 1/6 series titled “Patriot Purge,” the public relations department of Fox News reached out.
Fox PR intended to exclude its request from the minutes, but Covucci correctly found that * both * parties must agree not to be recorded before it becomes binding. “Daily Dot did not agree to Fox’s request when he received this offer and is therefore not bound by the request,” Covucci explained to readers. “Besides, you need to know that even Fox News wants to distance itself from Carlson’s documentary.”
So what was the request of an unnamed spokesman? In Covucci’s words, it read: “Can you add that it will be clear that these new episodes are for FOX Nation? A streaming subscription platform behind a pay wall. I don’t see that anywhere in the post. Tucker Carlson Originals is not for channel. “
This, of course, is not something we would want external press organizations to highlight if we were truly proud of our work. It’s hard to imagine Carlson being very happy when he finds out about this. It’s also worth mentioning that while the entire 1/6 documentary will really be behind the canvas wall at Fox Nation, some of that content will almost certainly break into Carlson’s show in prime time.

Cheney’s office publishes an email with Carlson’s team
But you can understand why the bosses from C-Suite in NYC want to distance the network from Carlson’s madness even though they allow it to continue playing. The channel faces considerable scrutiny of the upcoming conspiracy series, including by prominent Republicans like Liz Cheney – someone who doesn’t back down in her critique of Carlson.
After Cheney called Carlson on Thursday to promote 1/6 of the truth, a Fox propagandist invited her to his show. When Cheney refused, Carlson called her a coward. However, he did not include the statement provided by Cheney’s spokesman to the show, explaining its justification that it did not appear.
Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler released the statement Friday and showed an email exchange he had with Carlson’s booker. A statement from Adler to Carlson’s show read: “Tucker has had countless opportunities to explain to his viewers that the election was not stolen. Instead, he continues to promote dangerous conspiracies with language that provoked violence against authorities on Jan. 6. law enforcement and our Capitol. Liz will not be involved. ” uf …
