Tucker Carlson's Smile Time White Grievance Hour took a very serious look at the topic of disinformation last night, as part of yet another installment in his continuing series "They don't want you to think for yourself, so you should think whatever Tucker Carlson says you should." The part that got the most attention was this snippet posted to Twitter by Media Matters reporter Andrew Lawrence, in which Carlson seemed to insist that the very idea of "QAnon" was itself a figment of the liberal imagination:
Tucker Carlson says he couldn't find any evidence that the Qanon conspiracy theory even exists, like theres nothing… https://t.co/GyCqb5ME3M— Andrew Lawrence (@Andrew Lawrence)1614129196.0
Carlson, who has an uncanny talent for lying right down to his facial muscles, explained,
"It's worth finding out where the public is getting all this false information, this dis-information, as we'll call it. So we checked. We spent all day trying to locate the famous QAnon, which, in the end, we learned is not even a website. If it's out there, we could not find it.
Then, we checked Marjorie Taylor Greene's Twitter feed because we have heard she traffics in dis-information, CNN told us, but nothing there."
