Watch what happens when Tucker Carlson steps outside the conservative media bubble and gets fact-checked on Green New Deal falsehoods

From the February 8 edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): It says that the Green New Deal would, and I'm quoting, "totally overhaul transportation," and that would mean, quote, "building out high speed rail at a scale where air travel would stop becoming necessary." Hawaii Senator -- Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono responded to that by saying that would be hard for Hawaii. So, I don't think that's made up. The senator from Hawaii doesn't think it is --

HOCKETT: But -- no, no, no, but I mean -- it apparently its being misunderstood, right? We are really talking about expanding optionality here, we are not talking about getting rid of anything, right? We are talking about basically making it cost effective to move into more modern forms of technology, more modern forms of production, which would then enable people to actually cost effectively to transition to that stuff. We are not talking about requiring anything or prohibiting anything, that's sort of 1980's-style environmental.
