Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters were on the same page about the New York City subway shooting Tuesday, claiming the media would seek to minimize coverage of the attack in the city. largest city in the United States because one person the police are interested in is looking for is a Negro. .
“We know he’s not a white supremacist,” Carlson said of Frank James, 62, “so we bet the media wouldn’t notice this. Nothing is to be gained from covering up this particular brutality. Just another mass shooting in a big city. It’s all very sad.”
In YouTube videos reviewed by The Daily Beast, James commented at length on issues of race, politics and gun violence, saying in one video that “[N-words] should be wiped off the planet, even though I am one. James also said New York Mayor Eric Adams’ “plan to end gun violence” was “definitely going to fail,” and in another video said he has struggled with his mental health.
A few hours before Carlson made his “nothing to gain” remark, his colleague Jesse Waters made a strikingly similar statement above Five.
Initially, Watters criticized the press for allegedly hinting at James’ race. “It would be helpful if the media identified the suspect so you know who to look for. Is he white, is he Hispanic, is he Asian — who cares what he is! ‘ said Watts.
The Fox host later said the media would soon “bury” the whole situation, suggesting that some elements of the story didn’t match up with their supposed narrative.
“And now [the weapon] is a .38 or a Glock, and Asian [are] can be targeted,” continued Watters. “So you have a black, shotgun, Asian suspect that could be targeted – this story doesn’t last for 48 hours in the mainstream media. They will bury it like Waukesha,” he added, seemingly referring to the November 2021 attack on a Christmas parade in Wisconsin.
