Axios reported on McCarthy’s decision.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me
Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds. Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks.
Carlson told me: “[T]here was never any legitimate reason for this footage to remain secret.”
Now we’ll have a chance to see the whole story – not just the part they wanted us to see.
It’s a lot harder to sell a lie when the public has all the facts!
Tucker confirmed the news on air.

And Republicans on the Hill are applauding the move.
Tucker Carlson now has 41,000 hours of January 6 footage that Pelosi held for over two years.
Thank you @SpeakerMcCarthy for following through on this!
The public deserves to see everything that was hidden.

For all of you that doubted we would release the tapes.
Here you go!
I’m very happy to be right again in my support for Kevin McCarthy as our Speaker.
Americans deserve to see the truth, not a one sided narrative and unfair two tiered justice system.https://t.co/EkVvbTwxcP

But, of course, the Dems are flipping out.
Here’s what Newsweek had to say,
McCarthy’s move outraged some Democratic lawmakers, who noted that this footage should have been accessible to all media and the public and warned that Carlson could spin the contents of the videos in a way that would fuel conspiracy theories ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
“If there was ever a question that’s in the public’s interest to know, it’s what actually happened on January 6. By definition, this video will reveal it. It’s impossible for me to understand why any honest person would be bothered by that,” Carlson said.
However, Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California is concerned that Carlson might use the footage to tout a different narrative that would pave the way for “dangerous” theories.
Meanwhile, Victor Shi, a writer and Biden’s youngest delegate, said in a Twitter thread that McCarthy’s move is “the definition of state-run media & is a betrayal to our nation.”
He’s calling Tucker and the tapes state-run media?
We know “state-run media” is already in play…
It’s just been renamed mainstream media!
🚨Here we go!!🚨@SpeakerMcCarthy has turned over thousands of hours of J6 footage to @TuckerCarlson
America is about to learn the raw truth of what really happened that day

Finally, the other side of the story gets air time.
And while we wait for Tucker to share what he finds, here’s a little preview of what we already know will be confirmed.
