“That audience was enough to beat out the usual top show in cable news, Fox News’s The Five, as well as beat the competition on MSNBC and CNN by miles. In total viewers, Carlson tripled the 8 p.m. competition on MSNBC and sextupled his CNN rival. In the demo, Carlson more than tripled both MSNBC and CNN,” Mediaite reported.

Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” recently experienced a meteoric rise in popularity, drawing in a whopping 4.1 million viewers in a single evening. With a daily audience of over 3 million viewers, Fox News prime time reached previously unheard-of heights, outpacing its rivals.

“The very strong prime time number was anchored by Tucker Carlson, who brought in 4.14 million total viewers as his show sparked controversy on Monday night for his Jan. 6th coverage. Fox prime time doubled MSNBC’s average of 1.49 million total viewers and brought in more than six times the viewers of CNN. CNN’s prime time average came in at 451,000 total viewers,” Mediaite reported.

Yet, not everyone approved of him showing the footage.

The United States has taken action after previously secret security footage was made public. The Capitol Police Chief immediately sent a memo to his department. The video shows a worrying sight where police appear to be passive as a large mob storms the Capitol.

Police Chief Tom Manger sharply rebuked the deceptive and offensive remarks made on Tucker Carlson’s Monday night show, which distorted the facts surrounding the Capitol riot on January 6th and called into question the credibility of the occasion where Congress certified President Joe Biden’s victory.

“The program conveniently cherry-picked from the calmer moments of our 41,000 hours of video,” Manager asserted. “The commentary fails to provide context about the chaos and violence that happened before or during these less tense moments.”

Manager mentioned Capitol Police “maintains, as anyone with common sense would, that had Officer Sicknick not fought valiantly for hours on the day he was violently assaulted, Officer Sicknick would not have died the next day.”

Manger saluted the courageous members of the Capitol Police team in a touching message, expressing his gratitude and respect for their commitment and strength on January 6.

“You fought like hell on January 6 and risked your lives to protect the Constitution and everything this country stands for,” he wrote. “You, along with our law enforcement partners, saved every member of Congress and their staff.”

Democrats and Republicans argue over the decision by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to give Carlson unique access to 40,000 hours of previously unseen surveillance material, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell expresses his displeasure.

“It was a mistake in my view for Fox News to depict this in a way that is completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at the Capitol thinks,” according to USA Today, McConnell remarked.
