There really isn't much for us to add here, so we present these videos without comment, other than to note that we don't particularly like linking to Twitter these days, but we can't find any other source that has these.
To start, what would have happened if Tucker Carlson had been around to cover the JFK assassination? Comedy Central's The Daily Show has a pretty good idea:

Or what if Carlson had covered the Nazi invasion of Paris?

These are just a couple of examples; social media is chock-full of people imagining Carlson's coverage of Watergate, Pearl Harbor, The Hindenburg disaster, the sinking of the Titanic, various World War I battles, and just about anything else where there is film or photographic evidence. And The Washington Post's Alexandra Petri even had a piece about Carlson's upcoming revelation that the dinosaurs were not actually killed by a meteorite striking the Earth.
In addition to the JFK footage, The Daily Show also came up with something that stretches credulity to the breaking point. What if, on his show, Carlson covered... the truth?

Needless to say, this sort of fantasy could not possibly come to pass.
In any case, he who lives by the selective edit dies by the selective edit. And if there is anyone this week more deserving of ridicule and scorn than Carlson, we just don't know who that person might be. (Z)
