Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House has responded to Tucker Carlson’s explosive Jan. 6 Tapes reporting by trying to smear the Fox News star as “not credible.”
As Slay News has been reporting, the Democrats and corporate media have been melting down after Carlson showed the American people unedited security footage from the U.S. Capitol that was filmed on January 6, 2021.
The never-before-seen footage proves that the Democrats’ anti-Trump narrative, that Jan. 6 was an “attack” and a “violent insurrection,” was a lie.
Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates issued a statement on behalf of the White House regarding Carlson’s reporting.
“We agree with the chief of the Capitol Police and the wide range of bipartisan lawmakers who have condemned this false depiction of the unprecedented, violent attack on our Constitution and the rule of law — which cost police officers their lives.”
“We also agree with what Fox News’s own attorneys and executives have now repeatedly stressed in multiple courts of law: that Tucker Carlson is not credible.”

The second part of the statement misleading links the Jan. 6 reports to a Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against Fox News.
In the lawsuit, Fox News’s lawyers argued that Carlson engages in rhetorical hyperbole and opinion.
During the White House press briefing, Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about Carlson’s report and the lawsuit.
“We agree with the chief of police and the wide range of bipartisan lawmakers,” she said.
Jean-Pierre then deceitfully claimed that Carlson showing unedited footage to the public is somehow a “false depiction” of Jan. 6.
“We have condemned this false depiction,” she said.
“As it relates to the Tucker Carlson question, we agree with Fox Nation’s own attorneys and executives… that Tucker Carlson is not creditable when it comes to this issue in particular.”
Jean-Pierre then continued by citing articles to support her claim that Tucker Carlson isn’t credible.
The press secretary then tried lumping in Sean Hannity as well.
She added that Carlson and Hannity’s reporting is “shameful.”
