Fox News Anchor Tucker Carlson claims the NSA is spying on him in effort to shut down his show

Right-wing Fox News Anchor Tucker Carlson is claiming that the Biden Administration is spying on his private communications via surveillance methods in an attempt to get his show off the air.

Just this past Monday night, Tucker made the accusation on his program ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’, claiming that he had received the information from an anonymous whistleblower who had data that came from his texts and emails regarding a current story that he and his team were working on. Carlson said Monday night, “It’s not just political protests that the government is spying on. Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the US government who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.”

Carlson himself admitted that the claim was quite shocking, adding that it is something he himself would normally be very skeptical of, because, “it’s illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It’s a crime. It’s not a Third World country. Things like that should not happen in America.” Although Carlson believed there to be much validity to the claim, a report by Axios suggests that Carlson’s accusation is nothing more than that.
