Fox News host Tucker Carlson tells interviewer: 'I lie'

In an interview, Tucker Carlson admitted: “I lie.”

The Fox News host was speaking to Dave Rubin. The YouTube host and conservative author asked how Carlson felt about CNN hosts Brian Stelter, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, who Rubin called “clown people”.

Carlson said: “I guess I would ask myself, like, I mean I lie if I’m really cornered or something. I lie. I really try not to. I try never to lie on TV. I just don’t – I don’t like lying. I certainly do it, you know, out of weakness or whatever.

“But to systematically lie like that without asking yourself why am I doing this? So if these people ask themselves, ‘Why am I doing this?’ And they say, ‘Well, I want to protect the system because I really believe in the system.’”

1. For the "sane" conservative schtick he acts out,

he must be getting nervous about how far past the Insurrection Line he strays.

7. Tucker Carlson Says He Tries Not to Lie on Air, But Admits: 'I Lie, If I'm Really Cornered or Someth




Fox News host Tucker Carlson made a curious set of comments in a new interview where he may or may not have admitted to lying on air.

In an interview with David Rubin posted online over the weekend, Carlson accused the media of having become “illiberal.” In one point in their conversation — flagged first by Media Matters — Rubin asked Carlson how he thinks several anchors on CNN “live with themselves at this point when they just lie again and again and we have the internet to expose the lies?”

In his answer, Carlson led by saying “I lie if I’m really cornered or something.”

I lie. I really try not to. I try never to lie on TV. I just don’t — I don’t like lying. I certainly do it, you know, out of weakness or whatever. But to systematically lie like that without asking yourself why am I doing this? So if these people ask themselves why am I doing this? And they say, well, I want to protect the system because I really believe in the system. Ok, who’s running the system? You’re lying to defend Jeff Bezos? Like, you’re treating Bill Gates like some sort of moral leader, like, are you kidding me? How dare you do that!
