Whoopi Goldberg recently discussed the controversy surrounding Tucker Carlson during yesterday’s episode of The View ‌(7 March), drawing parallels between his reporting and George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The attack on the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021, was shown on video on March 6 evening by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. He allegedly argued that it showed “mostly peaceful chaos” rather than a riot or uprising. Even though there was immediate evidence to the contrary, Carlson maintained that Democratic politicians and media outlets had misled the public about the attack. The footage of rioters showed them storming the building’s halls, slamming windows, pushing through police barricades, and threatening lawmakers.

The View’s episode from Tuesday featured Whoopi Goldberg comparing Tucker Carlson’s Fox News segment to the dystopian novel and, according to her, people witnessed what they were made to see on the screen. “And no matter what, you can’t put this monkey back in the cage.”

For the unheard, Carlson aired a previously unreleased video from the riots on January 6 on his Monday night show while calling “Insurrectionists as “Sightseers.”

On the other hand, Goldberg said, “We all saw the violent Capitol insurrection play out on live TV back on January 6 2021,” to the audience on Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s The View.I don’t think anybody thought it was a TV show, I don’t think anybody was not sure what they were looking at.”

Tucker Carlson Accused of Airing ‘Offensive And Misleading’ Portrayal Of Capitol Riots

Chief of Capitol Police Thomas Manger allegedly charged Tucker Carlson with portraying the riots in an “offensive and misleading” manner. He even alleged that the show selected the “more calmer moments of our 41,000 hours of video.”

As per reports, speaker Kevin McCarthy was granted access to the video for Carlson’s show. The way Carlson described the riots reportedly angered prominent Republicans as well. According to Senator Mitt Romney, anything that aimed to “normalize that behavior” was risky and repugnant. 

Per American Republican, Marjorie Taylor Green, the footage must make Republicans “recognize the severity and grave nature of the lies that have been told by the Democrats and complicit media.”
