Citation From the June 10, 2020, edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): We do think it's worth, for a minute, taking a pause to assess whether or not they were in fact lying to us about the coronavirus and our response to it. And the short answer is this, yes, they were definitely lying. 

As a matter of public health, we can say conclusively the lockdowns were not necessary. In fact, we can prove that and here's the most powerful evidence: states that never locked down at all, states where people were allowed to live like Americans and not cower indoors alone, in the end turned out no worse than states that had mandatory quarantines, the state you probably live in. The states that did lock down at first but were quick to reopen have not seen explosions of coronavirus cases.
