The Associated Press is reporting that “The International Criminal Court said Friday that it has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin for war crimes.” The ICC cites Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine and the tactics he has employed that include targeting civilians, torture, abducting children, and other unambiguous war crimes.
While many observers will regard this as the inevitable consequence of Putin’s terroristic campaign, it should be also be considered just the beginning. Putin had allies and comrades that contributed to his unprovoked hostilities. Among them is Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has served as Putin’s primary media mouthpiece in the United States.
Carlson has been disseminating Russian propaganda about the attack on Ukraine from its earliest days. And therefore, Carlson and Fox News ought to be considered as accomplices. What follows are some examples of Carlson’s commentaries that affirm his support for Putin and his imperialistic aspirations.
So It Wasn’t a Hoax After All: Tucker Carlson Admits that Russia Got Trump Elected
Carlson is finally conceding that Russia deliberately interfered in American politics on Trump’s behalf saying that “Biden has just pushed the EU to stop buying Russian oil. It’s payback for getting Trump elected.” But Carlson is criticizing Biden – not Russia or Trump – for this.

Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, in an interview on the Kremlin sponsored RT (Russian Television) cable channel, lavished praise on Fox News as a singular voice for Russia’s interests, saying that “only Fox News is trying to present some alternative point of view.” Alternative meaning anti-American.
Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson, Pleads to Keep the Russian Dictator in Power
“We can force Vladimir Putin from office entirely […but…] Would the next Russian president be an improvement over Putin?” Do you suppose that Carlson would have used the same argument for keeping Hitler in power?
Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin
Carlson demonstrates his habit of asking asinine questions: “Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? Has he shipped every middle-class job in my town to Russia? Did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic…” And he went on for several more minutes of that idiocy absolving Putin of any wrongdoing.
WTF? Fox News Traitor Tucker Carlson Takes Russia’s Side Against Democracy and America
“Why would we take Ukraine’s side? Why wouldn’t we have Russia’s side? I’m totally confused.”
This is the sort of collaboration that ought to earn Carlson an arrest warrant of his own.
