(PatrioticPost.com)- Far-left agitator Keith Olbermann made the bizarre and unfounded claim on Tuesday that Fox News is planning on axing one of its most popular news anchors Tucker Carlson.
Olbermann, who has been fired from a succession of different media outlets over the years, claimed that Carlson will soon be terminated by Fox only to find himself employed by a new venture funded by both Fox News and the Kremlin.
If a Republican was making claims like this about a left-wing news anchor, with zero evidence whatsoever, it would be rightly labeled a conspiracy theory. But for some reason, Olbermann gets a pass.
The extreme-left commentator appeared to be making a dig at Carlson for his criticism of President Joe Biden’s approach to the growing Ukraine-Russia conflict.
During Monday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson asked why it’s disloyal to side with Russia but loyal to side with Ukraine.
“They’re both foreign countries that don’t care anything about the United States,” Carlson said.
And instead of recognizing the comments as critical of anybody who wants to send American troops to defend foreign countries, Olbermann seemed to interpret this as Tucker Carlson siding with Russia.
When someone would rather do mental gymnastics than admit they are wrong about someone or something, that’s a sign they’re an ideologue…
Olbermann retweeted a post made by far-left “journalist” Julia Davis, who works at the Daily Beast, who claimed that Russian state television were using Tucker Carlson to attack America – as if that’s Carlson’s fault.
Olbermann added in his post that both CNN and MSNBC fired Tucker, and that “when somebody at [Fox News Channel] has to avoid a personal downfall they’ll fire him too.”
Well, CNN fired him. We fired him at MSNBC. When somebody at FNC has to avoid a personal downfall they'll fire him too. Nice to know @TuckerCarlson has a future home at Fox Kremlin News. https://t.co/yEqbatUdI0

“Nice to know @TuckerCarlson has a future home at Fox Kremlin News,” he added.
That’s called a conspiracy theory.
