Fox News host Tucker Carlson made an explosive claim on his show Monday night: That he had learned through a whistleblower that the National Security Agency is spying on him and planning to leak his communications in a bid to take him off the air.
“The Biden administration is spying on us,” Carlson declared to millions of Fox’s viewers. “We have confirmed that.”
But Carlson’s own colleagues don’t appear to be buying what he is selling.
Barring an unusual circumstance, if a reputable news organization had confirmed that the NSA — or any arm of the US government — was spying on one of its top employees, it would be a story of significant consequence.
