Fox News’ Tucker Carlson questioned aloud whether Senator Elizabeth Warren could be paying the Boston Globe after they ran the results of her DNA test on his show Monday night.
Carlson made the comment during a back and forth exchange with his guest, radio host Howie Carr.
In the ad Warren released as a part of the PR plan, Carr was featured mocking Warren.
“Tucker, if the Boston Globe was a legitimate news organization the headline on the story would be something like ‘DNA test prove white women, white woman,’ or ‘DNA test confirm Senator Warren is still a fake Indian.’ I mean this is ridiculous,” Carr added.
“Let me ask you, as the only person really outside of New England whoever looks at the Boston Globe I always wonder are they taking payment directly from or is it just a kind of moral payment?” Carlson asked. (RELATED: Boston Globe Correction Casts Doubt On Liz Warren’s Ancestry Claims)
“She is part of the resistance. What is interesting to me is that this morning with the story coming out it said she is somewhere between 1/32 and 1/512 which is not that great, but that was all wrong. They are used to fake news but this time it was fake math. It was really only 1/64th for up to 1/1,024,” Carr added. (Boston Globe Issues Second Correction On Liz Warren DNA Story)
