On May twenty fifth of 2020, George Floyd died of accidents he suffered throughout an arrest. And the arrest was caught on video. Officer Derek Chauvin grew to become notorious as America noticed video of him casually kneeling on Floyd’s neck together with his hand in his pocket.
The killing led to mass protests across the nation. And Americans have waited to see Chauvin face trial. Monday noticed the beginning of that trial and protection of it has dominated cable information.
Fox News‘ protection of the occasion has largely targeted on defending the officers and slamming Floyd. Tucker Carlson took it to a completely new stage on Monday night time.
Carlson claimed that CNN was sensationalizing the trial regardless of not truly caring about Floyd. He began, “This could go on a while in other words, stay in your seat, don’t turn away. The trial may be boring but it’s important. It’s not about George Floyd obviously. It never was.”

The Fox pundit continued, “No one on CNN cared about George Floyd while he was alive he was unemployed and on drugs like a lot of people in country they paid him no attention and no one on CNN actually cares about George Floyd now. What they care about you is you and your role it in the systemic racism that supposedly killed George Floyd. If the Floyd trial ends in acquittal there could be riots. We accept that as a fact of life in this country. No civilized country should accept that but suddenly we do.”
