“Patriot Purge” is a three-part documentary released last month on the Fox Nation streaming service. In it, Carlson argues that January 6 is being used as an excuse to persecute conservative Americans, and compares how the lie was used in the lead-up to the Iraq War.

Goldberg and Hess called the documentary a collection of incoherent conspiracy-delusions, replete with “factual inaccuracies, half-truths, misleading imagery and harmful omissions.”

He said this was the most egregious example of former President Donald Trump’s tendency to long-term opinions promoting false claims and bizarre narratives, while the news side of Fox reports the truth.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is confused as to why the Anti-Defamation League is weighing in on his comments about the "The Great Replacement" theory.

“If someone with a platform like this shares this kind of misinformation loud and long, there are Americans who will believe it – and act on it,” he wrote. “It’s not theoretical. It actually happened on January 6, 2021.”

Both writers haven’t been on most of Fox’s Opinion Shows recently. Her most recent appearances have largely been limited to being a panelist on Bret Baer’s news show or Chris Wallace’s Sunday show.
