Fox News host Tucker Carlson took aim at the New York Times on his show Monday, claiming that the Times had plans to post Tucker’s home address in a future story, with the intent of intimidating him by threatening his family’s safety.
Carlson, who has already had to move his family once due to threats of violence against them, was having none of it.
In the final few minutes of his show, he directly addressed the situation.
According to Tucker, political activist Murray Carpenter was the one running the story on the Carlson family whereabouts.

The Hill has more:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday said The New York Times is prepping an upcoming story that includes his home address, saying the news outlet is planning to share the information in an attempt to silence him.
The Times issued a response to The Hill saying that they have no intention of publishing Carlson's address.
Carlson, in his broadcast, accused the Times of wanting him to be taken off the air and said that the publication of such information could lead to threats against him and his family, adding that when a previous address was shared publicly it led to his family having to move.
"Last week The New York Times began working on a story about where my family and I live. As a matter of journalism there is no conceivable justification for a story like that," Carlson said in closing his nightly program. "The paper is not alleging we’ve done anything wrong, and we haven’t. We pay our taxes. We like our neighbors. We’ve never had a dispute with anyone.
"So why is The New York Times doing a story on the location of my family’s house? Well, you know why. To hurt us, to injure my wife and kids so that I will shut up and stop disagreeing with them," he added.
The Times pushed back on Carlson's assertions in its statement.
"While we do not confirm what may or may not publish in future editions, The New York Times does not plan to expose any residence of Tucker Carlson’s, which Carlson was aware of before his broadcast," said a Times spokeswoman when reached for comment.
Carlson said in the broadcast that he and his family moved out of his Washington, D.C., home two years ago after repeated threats from the activist group antifa when his address was published by activists at the time.
In a twist of events, Carpenter himself ended up being the one doxxed by Twitter users.
Doxxing has been normalized by the left, as has cancel culture.
When you normalize such weapons, they eventually will be used against you.
There's certainly a lesson to be learned from this.
Tucker has already felt the sting of his family being endangered by the leftist mob.
Two years ago, Antifa vandalized the outside of Carlson's home while he was at work and hurled verbal threats while his wife was there alone.
Here's that story from ABC:
Antifa protesters chanted outside of Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson's Washington, D.C., house and vandalized his driveway Wednesday night while his wife was inside, leading to condemnation from his own network as well as media personalities from rival networks.
The group Smash Racism DC, which calls itself an anti-fascist (Antifa) group, posted a video of several people gathered outside of a house.
"Tucker Carlson, we are outside your home to protest. ... Your policies promote hate, and we want you to know we know where you sleep at night," someone yelled into a bullhorn.
"We know where you sleep at night," the group chanted.
The video has since been removed from Facebook, and it appears that Smash Racism's Twitter account has been suspended.
Carlson wasn't home at the time, but his wife was and reported that she heard loud banging on her door, according to a report from the Metropolitan Police Department. Carlson told the Washington Post that the protesters also cracked his front door.
The report said about 20 people were part of the group, who were chanting loudly and using bullhorns. An anarchy symbol was spray painted on the driveway, and signs with political messages were left on vehicles in the driveway and on the front door, according to police.
The left is absolutely scrambling to shut Carlson and other conservatives down.
Some are already turning the allegations around on Tucker and claiming that he is now responsible for the doxing of the reporter who was running the story.
Surely Tucker Carlson, who's ratings have skyrocketed as of late, would endanger both his reputation as well as the safety of his family by making a needless false claim.
Others also continue to make claims that "cancel culture" isn't real, completely dismissing the fact that doxxing is a form of cancel culture itself.
Do not be surprised if doxxing, as well as allegations, against conservative members of the media start to run rampant the closer we get to November's election.
These things always seem to happen just before high-profile elections.
