For more than two decades, Reporter Carl Cameron was a fixture of Fox News’ political coverage. He departed the network in 2017 after joining it at its inception.
Now, according to reports, Cameron believes some of the network’s talent should be imprisoned for allegedly “spreading false information.”
In an interview on MSNBC, Cameron praised Biden’s divisive address in Buffalo (in which he assailed Republicans), claiming, again without proof, that the “purveyors of misinformation” are Republicans.
In fact, the situation has gotten so out of hand that Cameron wants the accused to be imprisoned.
“I believe the president did an excellent job. I wish he had taken this action a lot earlier, and we need much more from the left and middle, so be on guard because the Republicans have become purveyors of lies. When our two-party system is destroyed like that, democracy is in serious jeopardy,” Cameron added.
“It’s time to start doing things and maybe taking names and putting folks in jail,” he exclaimed.
Later, in the interview, MSNBC Anchor Nicolle Wallace said Carlson’s comments are “the fringe of the fringe,” a term that appeared to be agreed with by Cameron.
“I’m not sure how Tucker believes in any of this, and the network can actually do it,” he added.
Cameron’s alarming statements should be taken with a grain of salt, in my opinion. After all, Cameron and Fox News appear to have a long history of animosity, as the network publicly rebuked him several years ago.
This week, however, was not the first time that Cameron had resorted to extreme language in order to attack Fox News.
Cameron attacked the network last summer for challenging, on multiple occasions, the government’s account of COVID-19 and COVID vaccines.
“It’s no surprise. It’s gaslighting. It’s propaganda,” Cameron stated on CNN, adding that anyone who challenged or questioned the government’s account was “putting people at risk and potentially causing deaths.”
