While CNN’s Brian Stelter continues to do his part to boost Tucker Carlson’s No. 1 rated cable TV show, he’s also fact-checking Carlson on his Twitter feed, so the optimum setup is to have Fox News on your TV and Stelter’s Twitter feed on your iPad or something so you know when you’re being lied to. In his opening segment Monday, Carlson referred to Black Lives Matters as a political party, when it is indeed not literally a political party.
Tucker Carlson on Fox just now: "Black Lives Matter, in a very short period of time, has become the most powerful political party in America."
Spoiler alert: It's not a political party.

He's not making a literal statement Brian

Concrete thinking is alive & well among American journos. Abstract thinking is either painful or undoable for many of them.

Gee… you're so smart Brian.

I wonder if he meant it literally, or perhaps metaphorically.
— AshleeLee (@MsAshleeLee) June 23, 2020
Spoiler alert – it's a metaphor.

It kind of is, Brian.

It's the Democrat party.

Where does their money go?

How come when I went to the website and clicked “Donate” it took me to ActBlue? pic.twitter.com/pGeaOsdneS

BLM raises money that goes to ActBlue which is an arm of DNC and money is distributed to election campaigns….sounds like they work directly for the DNC

At this rate, it's a pro-Trump super PAC. https://t.co/a0BU7Zf6L3

I know he thinks this is a good dunk. Such a fraud.

Damn, bro. That's not what he said.

Misquoted. You have no journalistic credibility.
— Arthur Le Saux (@ArthurLeSaux) June 23, 2020
You misquoted him. Has become more powerful than either major political party. C’mon. You can’t even get that straight?
— Anthony Cipollo (@acipollo) June 23, 2020
Hey Brian. Why are you lying (again)?
— Arthur Schwartz (@ArthurSchwartz) June 23, 2020
What a tool you are. Jealously watching a highly rated and compelling anchor such as @TuckerCarlson and instead of taking notes, these bitchy little remarks are the best you can come up with?! https://t.co/KNPB7fbvWo
