Fox News host Tucker Carlson may have rankled some conservative feathers in recent days with what appeared to be some gentle criticism and back-and-forth with attorney Sidney Powell, who is pursuing allegations of electronic vote fraud in Georgia and elsewhere.
But for the most part, Carlson remains one of the most poignant political hosts on television and well worth the time to watch.
To the point regarding Powell, Carlson appeared to make amends somewhat on his Monday program with new analysis regarding the now-very-well-documented (by some publications) voter fraud allegations and evidence.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the 2020 election was “rigged” to favor President-elect Joe Biden in plain sight.
The top-rated cable news figure used his opening monologue on Monday to argue that Democrats orchestrated an expansive scheme to bend the presidential contest in their favor. He started by claiming that electronic voting is unreliable and called for a return to hand-counting paper ballots without the use of machines.
He made the case following a week in which Carlson challenged Sidney Powell, who is involved in the Trump legal fight in battleground states, to show evidence that voting machines are being used to flip votes and a couple hours after the General Services Administration authorized the beginning of a transition to a Biden administration.
“You’ve heard a lot over the past few days about the security of our electronic voting machines. And this is a real issue, no matter who raises it or who tries to dismiss it out of hand as a conspiracy theory. Electronic voting is not as secure as traditional hand-counting, period. It never will be as secure. Voters can see this because it’s obvious, and it makes them nervous,” Carlson said.
The host blamed our leaders for sowing so much doubt while noting that other countries avoid electronic voting “because they know it undermines confidence in democracy.”
“Going forward, we need to find out exactly what happened in this month’s presidential election. We need to find out no matter how long it takes the investigation to unfold or how much it costs. And once we get answers from that investigation, we ought to revert immediately to the traditional system of voting, the one that served our democracy for hundreds of years. What we are doing now is not working,” he said.
