TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Now the committee is decided to shut down one of the most popular journalists on the right, Alex Jones. Yes, journalist. Jones is often mocked for his flamboyance but the truth is he has been a far better guide to reality in recent years. In other words, a far better journalist than, say NBC News national security correspondent Ken Dilanian or Margaret Brennan of CBS.

Alex Jones never bought the Russia hoax, not for a second. And if Jones sat down with Tony Fauci, he would ask him real questions just as journalists are supposed to do. He wouldn't just slobber all over him. But, Alex Jones makes fun of Joe Biden so the January 6 committee is threatening him with prison. Now, the irony here and there are many layers of irony here, but the main one is that Alex Jones isn't simply innocent of inciting crime on January 6, Alex Jones actively worked to prevent crimes from taking place on January 6. 

We're not running interference for Alex Jones and we're not guessing about it, we happen to know this for a fact. Because we looked into it, in some detail for Patriot Purge, it's our three-part documentary series on Fox Nation.
