The Insider reports:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday issued a rare rebuke to Fox News for airing selectively edited footage of the January 6 assault on the Capitol on Tucker Carlson’s show on Monday night.
“With regard to the presentation on Fox News last night, I want to associate myself entirely with the opinion of the chief of Capitol Police about what happened on January 6,” said McConnell.
“My concern is how it was depicted, which is a different issue,” he said. “It was a mistake, in my view, for Fox News to depict this in a way that’s completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at the Capitol thinks.”
