ARI MELBER (HOST): So, that's 2010 Tucker. Think about it -- what he said then was that he was going to stand for exactly the factual mission that today's Tucker opposes. And the point is not just hypocrisy, the point is that Carlson’s own standard informs his potential liability in court for what he’s doing now and it shines a kind of a weird, and perhaps troubling light, on how this all works, at least for people like him who are willing to tell you things that the Dominion suit suggests are misleading or false.

The larger question is whether and why this movement appears to affirm this as their number one speaker and leader, affirm this kind of lying and attacks on democracy and a leadership that is clearly documented, built on little more than selling you out.

And if you're a Fox viewer, it would appear Mr. Carlson is not being honest with you. It would appear he does not think you will catch him or he does not respect you. So if this is what the conservative movement now embraces, it really brings us to a very famous and simple question: Is this your king?
