This per Fox News own Lawyers in arguing in Defense of Fox and Tucker in a defamation case against Fox News and Tucker Carlson

The Fox News lawyers argue that Tucker's audience knows what he says may be false and they do not expect him to tell the truth


“Would a reasonable viewer be coming here [to ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’] and thinking, ‘This is where I’m going to be hearing the news of the day’?” Fox News attorney Erin Murphy asked in a hearing-via-telephone on Wednesday

And in an earlier court filing, Murphy referred to “Tucker Carlson Tonight” as “hyperbolic opinion commentary,” not “sober factual reporting.”

So a commentary show instead of reporting stories of the day like channel 9 does on the 10pm newscast. Yeah, no s**t sherlock. Now do Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper, etc.

You do understand the difference between news and commentary right?

Where did his lawyers say his commentary (opinion) was false and his audience didn’t expect the truth?

With media like you, no wonder the world is misinformed.

Legal precident shows that it is not possible to defame or commit libel against a public figure. It is the same reason why tabloids exist and are not sued into smithereens.

This will be an unsuccessful lawsuit.

Tucker Carlson who is a Ivy League trust fund baby called Tammy Duckworth a 'coward'. She lost her legs in combat while flying a Black Hawk Helicopter. Also continued to serve after that. She served along side her husband. Also her father was a Marine.

The fact his show of rallying against the 'Liberal Elite' is so popular just shows you how easy it is to distract the average American. He and the President are literally coastal elite from generations of wealth.

A member of Duckworth's family has fought in every American war since the Revolution

Called her a coward for her service, or some other reason?

Quote is below. He was responding to her views on George Washington and her refusal to debate him over it on his show.

“George Washington was a genuinely great man. But to morons like Tammy Duckworth, Washington was just some old white guy who needs to be erased.”

“Duckworth is too afraid to defend her own statements on a cable-TV show. What a coward.”
