Carl Cameron, a former Fox News host and personality, doesn’t think one-time colleague Tucker Carlson should be breathing free air.
He has joined a host of others on the far left who think Carlson ought to be jailed “or something worse.”
In an interview Saturday with CNN’s Jim Acosta, Cameron was asked, “Do you think the Murdoch family in charge of Fox will ever pull the plug on Tucker?”
The former Fox Newser compared remarks about certain issues Carlson makes on his shows akin to yelling ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater.
“The fact of the matter is, if you disturb the peace by starting a riot in a movie theater, cops are going to arrest you and you might end up in jail or you might end up in something worse,” Cameron said.
Carlson has come under fire in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Buffalo, in which a young white male appeared to target mostly black patrons, killing 10 of them before surrendering to police. The popular Fox News host is being blamed because he has accused Democrats in the past of wanting to ‘import’ third-world poor to replace American citizens who don’t vote for them and change the demographic landscape, what critics have called a “Great Replacement Theory.”
The shooter was apparently a subscriber to that theory, though he also expressed a disdain for Fox News.
“The president has to be more forceful and sooner or later the law enforcement and the US government is going to have to stop the lying because it’s causing people’s deaths,” Cameron told Acosta.
“It’s not just Fox, it’s social media in general. It’s on the internet. And we have to remember that a good portion of what we read is coming from folks who aren’t Americans, pretending to be Americans in order to gaslight them even worse,” he said.
The Daily Mail adds:
Cameron, who left Fox in 2017, suggested that Carlson be censored and de-platformed because he ‘puts out falsehoods that cause damage and violent, violent hate.’
During his time at Fox News, Cameron earned the nickname ‘Campaign Carl’ as he followed various political campaigns across the country.
Since leaving the network, Cameron went on to found his own news website, Front Page Live.
Cameron did not directly accuse Carlson of preaching ‘The Great Replacement Theory’ on his show.
