Video of the Day: Tucker Carlson takes on blogger who accused him of advancing Russian propaganda

On Wednesday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took on Commentary‘s Noah Rothman for an article in which he accused Carlson of advancing Russian narratives.

According to Real Clear Politics:

Throughout the week, Carlson has questioned why “official Washington,” Republicans and Democrats, have united behind the idea that the United States has a moral obligation to go deeper into war in Syria after a suspected gas attack. Carlson wondered why the Assad-accused attack would come right after President Trump announced he wanted the U.S. out of the region and asked how blame can be assigned within 48 hours of the attack.

“Merely asking obvious questions, we are told to shut up and just obey,” Carlson said of people who want war.

Here’s a tweet in which Rothman accused Carlson of disseminating Russian propaganda:

Rothman denied ever accusing Carlson of supporting Assad.  Carlson, however, quoted the writer’s own words accusing him of “defending a bloodsoaked regime.” Carlson argued that he is just being safe and questioning know-it-alls and anyone who states as fact what they actually don’t know to be fact.

Real Clear Politics added:

Rothman, a former blogger at Mediaite, wrote Carlson is “advancing pro-Assad narratives.”

Carlson said Rothman and people like him are “tools of people who want” war.

“Actors like you and on many other channels all over the left you hear people say what you said which is it’s unpatriotic or, in fact, treasonous to ask these questions and I am just saying how do you account for the fact that the Secretary of [Defense] is saying the same thing I said on Monday,” he told the writer Wednesday night.

“This comes from Reuters, the Defense Secretary (Mattis) was just asked specifically the question essentially we asked on Monday, the one you called us traitors for asking, which is do we know Assad was behind the gas attack,” Carlson opened the interview.
