Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson castigated the Washington, D.C. press corps for its handling of the Department of Justice special counsel probe headed by Robert Mueller on the heels of the release of the report generated by the probe.Carlson accused the media of lying to the American public and offered examples of reporters congratulating themselves for reporting despite the report claiming no collusion between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
