(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Floating in the Fox News jetsam along with Chris Wallace, last seen scurrying for a dark corner in the rubble of CNN programming, former Fox News reporter Carl Cameron was busy this week trashing his old network and calling for Republicans to be thrown in jail for spreading “misinformation.”
Cameron popped up for an appearance on MSNBC, where he reveled in dumping on the GOP, ripping conservative media and heaping praise on President Joe Biden.
“I think the president did a great job,” Cameron said, referring to Biden’s disgracefully partisan pandering speech in Buffalo, where he amplified lies about conservatives driving a white supremacist agenda that fueled a deranged mass shooter.
“I wish he had done a lot of this a lot sooner, and we need a lot more from the Left and the middle,” Cameron said, before he did his own work spreading baseless accusations without any shred of evidence.
“And we got to watch out because the Republicans have become the purveyors of misinformation, and when our two-party system is broken like that, democracy is seriously in trouble,” Cameron warned, and offered a solution.
“It’s time to actually start doing things and maybe taking some names and putting people in jail,” he trumpeted.
And it’s not hard to guess who Cameron would like to shackle, based on his review of Fox News Tucker Carlson’s coverage of events.
“It really is kind of horrible to think that journalists with national and international capacity are putting together this type of nonsense,” Cameron lectured.
“I really can’t channel how Tucker believes in any of this stuff and how the network can go through with it,” he said.
It’s only appropriate that Cameron would reference the mainstream media concocting “nonsense.” Being interviewed by MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace likely triggered the notion as an involuntary response.
Wallace has spent a career gaslighting and sowing disinformation on command for her leftist over-bosses, spinning lies about everything from a Capitol police officer being beaten to death by J6 protesters to the Steele dossier, which she concluded might “be dirty, but it ain’t fake.”
There’s good reason Wallace is known as the “Typhoid Mary of Disinformation.”
From her days as a professional liar for the Bush/Cheney WH and campaign, now as a beloved-by-liberals MSNBC host, @NicolleDWallace has for two decades been the Typhoid Mary of Disinformation. Nobody spreads it more.

The notion of Wallace cheerleading the likes of Cameron for a pure hit job on conservatives makes a definitive case for fake news, exposing the failings and hypocrisy wrought when rad-left and swamp rot media collide and collude.
