Carlson’s team had reportedly reviewed thousands of hours of video footage and uncovered a starkly different account of events from that presented by the January 6 committee’s broadcasts. According to the New York Post, the team, the committee manipulated silent CCTV footage by adding audio of screams and other sounds to heighten the drama. They also allegedly cherry-picked footage to fit their “divisive narrative” rather than presenting a balanced view of events, despite having access to the same footage as Carlson’s team.
“There’s no sugarcoating what happened that day: J6 was shocking and violent in parts. It remains a stain on the nation, but it was not an “insurrection” or a ‘terrorist’ attack,” the Post wrote. “It was not the ‘greatest threat’ to American democracy since the Civil War, as Joe Biden claims. It was not worse than 9/11. The only people who died that day were Trump supporters.”
“Most strikingly, you will see for the first time the truth about the so-called QAnon Shaman, Jacob Chansley.”
“This is the guy with the horns and face paint who became the poster child of J6 villainy, and yet when you watch his journey through the Capitol, you will be shocked that he is serving 3.5 years in jail for ‘obstructing an official proceeding.'”
