Newsmax Host Begs Carlson To Stop Backing Putin

Media Matters has the transcript:

ERIC BOLLING (HOST): When Russia’s war on Ukraine started, Putin and his propaganda-drivers felt that that was their moment to run with an American TV anchor whose comments could be used to support their own narrative and prop up their propaganda machine.

From that moment on, clips from Tucker’s show were to be used ad nauseam night after night on Russian state TV. The Russians see Tucker Carlson as their ally, the guy across the ocean who’s helping their cause.

Now I’m not here to slam Tucker, I have the utmost respect for him. But, Tucker, you don’t want to be associated with this, certainly you don’t want to be — it to be part of your legacy to be associated with a war criminal, an evil madman committing blatant genocide and atrocities just across the ocean.

You don’t want to be associated with that in any way. The video is heartbreaking, Tucker, you’re seeing these images that I’m seeing. It’s unbelievable.
