ABC’s Jon Karl accuses Tucker Carlson of ‘plagiarizing’ Vladimir Putin: ‘It’s almost word for word’


Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been adamant about not wanting the United States to get dragged into a war with Russia over the invasion of Ukraine, insisting that this does not serve the best interests of the nation while noting the ultimate irony that the political class is willing to risk World War III in defense of Ukraine’s borders while our own porous borders are wide open to the world, with nearly two million illegal immigrants crossing in a single year in 2021.

For that stance, Carlson has been called a traitor and a “Putin apologist,” but ABC News’ Jonathan Karl took the campaign to silence Carlson a step further on Thursday, accusing the top-rated Fox News host of “plagiarism” of Putin.

The fact that Karl did this during an appearance on MSNBC speaks volumes to the political class coming together to support intervention in Ukraine, a phenomenon that not only includes the corporate media being largely onboard but also has Republicans and Democrats singing from the same songbook.

Karl appeared on Deadline: White House on Thursday, which is hosted by MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace — the queen of liberal propaganda claimed Carlson was “devoted to Russian propaganda,” even calling him “the wingman to Putin as he starts slaughtering women and children.”

“I mean, I can’t even begin to speculate on that,” Karl responded. “I think that there’s always reason as a journalist to be skeptical of what is said by official sources in other countries, and in our own countries. Lord knows that’s been my approach. But again, what is sort of inexplicable here is that what is being said is almost a plagiarism of Vladimir Putin. It’s almost word for word what Vladimir Putin has been saying. Not just now but again for several years, and what he has said in making the argument to justify what’s happening in Ukraine.”

“It’s inexplicable. I can’t explain it,” he continued. “All I can say is that these are the facts. No, the United States, there’s no evidence the United States is manufacturing biological weapons in Ukraine. These are not secret labs that were revealed. In fact, at one point during the segment, he actually reads from a press release from a U.S. government press release. I mean, if they’re secret, it’s not a U.S. government press release. And the argument that the United States encouraged Russia to invade, that the United States engineered — that a single State Department official engineered a coup in Ukraine in 2014 to oust a pro-Russian leader, these are statements that are not only not true but are precisely what is being said in Moscow by Vladimir Putin.”

Carlson has been highly skeptical of the report of biological weapons research facilities being in Ukraine, which was confirmed by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines under questioning by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. Haines said there are “a little over a dozen biolabs” in the country, adding that they were “producing medical countermeasures” and not engaged in pursuing biological weapons.
