(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Partisan hack journalist at the Bezos-owned Washington Post Dana Milbank recently argued that the American public should not be allowed to see the J6 footage that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., recently gave to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Milbank, who works for a newspaper whose slogan is “Democracy Dies in Darkness”, made the claims in a recent appearance on NBC News.
Milbank, when asked about the fact that McCarthy delivered thousands of hours of footage over to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, was outraged that the public could be shown any footage of the Capitol at all.
He began his rant by blaming McCarthy for caving to the Freedom Caucus in order to secure the speakership.
“This is another one of the promises he made to the holdouts for the speakership,” Milbank began. “The truth is, this doesn’t belong in the public domain for anybody.”
Milbank, who penned an outrageous op-ed in 2021 arguing that the media treats President Joe Biden worse than it treated former President Donald Trump, descended immediately into the usual “J6 insurrection” melodrama that has characterized the state of the mainstream media for the past two years.
“Kevin McCarthy’s cravenness to cater to the Matt Gaetzes and Tucker Carlsons–he is risking the security of himself and of his colleagues, and of the Capitol itself.”
For Milbank, the footage should not be released to any media members because it could help the numerous insurrectionists-in-waiting who watch Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
“So if this footage is in the hand of any media, as happens with any national security information that’s in the possession of the media, they need to work with the Capitol Police and others so they don’t compromise the security of the Capital,” Milbank said. “And you can be pretty sure that’s not what Tucker Carlson is going to be doing with this information.”
