Candace Owens and Tucker Carlson slammed pundits on the left, as well as the corporate media on Monday night for downplaying spiking crime in liberal cities. Five children under the age of 18 have been shot and killed in Chicago so far in 2022.

Carlson said, "Violent crime in major cities is completely out of control. Thousands are dying, Americans dying this weekend in Chicago. For example, an eight year old girl was murdered."

Carlson continued, "But it's not just Chicago. It's nationwide. Ten of this country's biggest cities have set all time homicide records last year… including the dangerous seventies, it's worse now than it's ever been ever in American history. But on CNN that's not a problem at all. It was caused by their patrons of the Democratic party. So, of course they're angry at Fox News for bringing it up."

Carlson played a clip of CNN's "Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter" in which Stelter acknowledged crime is a problem, albeit with a caveat, "…but the way it's described on Fox, you'd be afraid to leave your house."

One of his guests called Fox’s coverage an "Instagram filter…you start with a real image and then you take the filter and you pump it up a thousand percent."
Another pundit on the CNN panel remarked, "The goal of this kind of coverage is to freak people out, to cause them to live in fear. Ironically, a lot of the fear-mongering is about the things that are not actually mortal threats. And then there is ignoring the things that are mortal threats, you know, COVID, isn't real and climate change isn't real…those things are a little bit scary or have been scarier at various points in the past couple of years."

Their view is that street crime isn't a big deal, and no one should fear it, but the amorphous threat of climate change, along with COVID, are reasons to cower in terror.

Carlson continued, "So the dumbest person on television, the mask and VAX lady who wants you to fear a climate. Is calling others fear, mongers. It's all kind of hilarious, but also sort of awful."
