The numbers were inverted the real numbers are that seven Russians are dying for each Ukrainian.

Tucker Carlson and his producers knew the real number and lied.

It is important for people like Rep. Lieu who have been in the briefings and know the facts to call out Tucker Carlson’s lies and misinformation. The Fox News host is trying to help Putin win by undermining US support for Ukraine.

Tucker Carlson is spreading dangerous anti-democracy propaganda to at least a few million Americans each weeknight.

It is easy for elected officials to ignore Carlson, but ignoring a threat will not make it go away. Only when people collectively stand up to correct and condemn propaganda will American democracy be saved.
