Fox News Gets Duped by Caller Touting Tucker Carlson During Breaking News Coverage
Fox News fell victim to a prank call live on the air on Tuesday evening following a shooting in Maryland, when a caller who posed as a witness ripped the network and praised Tucker Carlson.
Five people were shot at Morgan State University in Baltimore. WBAL-TV reported four men and one woman between the ages of 18 and 22 were shot. Four of the victims were students at the school.
No suspect has been arrested in the on-campus shooting.
In a dash to get coverage of the shooting, Fox News host Trace Gallagher spoke to a number of people at the scene.
One of them was a prank caller who said his name was “Tyrone” and who trolled the network as less credible without Carlson during a 35-second, uninterrupted speech.
