Tucker Accuses Media of Collusion Over Breonna Taylor Tragedy

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the majority of media coverage revolving around the death of Breonna Taylor has engaged in false messaging to push a political narrative before the upcoming election.

Taylor was killed in a drug raid of her home by police in Louisville, Kentucky. A grand jury decided to indict former Louisville Detective Brett Hankison on three counts of reckless endangerment Wednesday but declined to charge the two other officers involved in the high-profile incident.

Taylor’s death has continued to be the focus of social justice protests and movements calling for an end to racial discrimination and police brutality. However, Carlson disputed that race was a factor in Taylor’s death during his nightly show.

“Her death is sad. It’s a tragedy, but it wasn’t an act of racism,” Carlson said. “There’s no evidence for that, and if there was, we would admit it. But [the media] don’t care. All they care about is getting people to believe that this dystopia they describe is real. Why? It’s an election year.

Just a question for the police and local prosecutors in Kentucky. First, in all my years as a cop I never let the perpetrators run loose/go uncharged just because I and my cops were being investigated by higher authorities. The boy friend who fired on the cops first and wounded one of the cops would in most jurisdictions be charged with attempted murder and/or some lesser charges for his actions are against the cops. In addition, in that someone died while the boyfriend was exchanging gunfire with the cops he would be charged with murder in many jurisdictions across much of this nation. Why not in this chase?
