Tucker Carlson on March 2, 2017, in New York.

Tucker Carlson, the massively popular host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, lies on TV.

In other news, Phoenix is hot in the summer. It rains in Seattle. And the sky is blue. Some things you simply know without having to say them out loud. But Carlson did say the quiet part loud.

This is not me, a frequent Carlson critic, saying that he lies. Or not just me.

This is Carlson, in an interview over the weekend, saying so himself.

Carlson was being interviewed by Dave Rubin on Rubin’s show “The Rubin Report,” which airs on YouTube and BlazeTV. It’s a chummy chat, of the “why are you so great?” variety. It certainly isn’t gotcha journalism. Carlson can’t say he was tricked into saying this.
