Carlson Highlights Media Double Standard on Selective Editing


On Tuesday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson weighed in on The Daily Beast's doxing of an African-American Trump supporter who allegedly created a doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slowed down to make it look like she was drunk and slurring her words. Carlson noted the media's outraged over the edited video before calling them out for their hypocrisy: "It wasn't like when NBC edited a 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman sound like a racist murderer. Not like that at all. It wasn't like when every news outlet in America practically used short, out of context clips to make high school students from Kentucky look like they were attacking an elderly American Indian man. That kind of editing is totally fine. That's journalism." He then contrasted all of these other examples of selective editing with the Pelosi video: "by contrast, that mocked a prominent Democrat. That's unforgivable."
