Tucker: Will There Be Any Apologies for 'Ludicrous Theory' About Trump & Bezos' Texts?
Following a bombshell revelation about how the National Enquirer obtained Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' text messages, Tucker Carlson is wondering if some in the media will apologize for speculating about President Trump's involvement in the scandal.
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc., paid the brother of Bezos’ mistress $200,000 for the private text messages between the two that were published in January.
In an interview with Fox News' Howard Kurtz, Michael Sanchez, the brother of Bezos’ girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, said he did cooperate with the tabloid while it was investigating whether his sister and the Amazon founder were having an extramarital affair.
This comes after months of speculation as to how the tabloid obtained messages revealing lurid details about the alleged affair.
On "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Tuesday, Carlson tossed to a montage of pundits speculating if American Media Inc. -- which is owned by longtime Trump friend David Pecker -- is doing the president's "dirty work" with a "hatchet job" on one of his adversaries.
"It was a ludicrous theory from the start. There was never any evidence to show that it was true. And now it turns out, it's false," Carlson said, pointing to some who speculated Saudi Arabia could have been behind the texts coming to light.
"Another ridiculous theory has been exposed as a sham, but where are the consequences for this reporting? Does anybody stand up and say, 'I'm sorry. I lied to you'? Nope."
