Video: CNN's Don Lemon Slams Fox News's Tucker Carlson—He Spreads 'President's Lies...on Daily Basis'

CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon have hit out at Fox News for spreading lies "on a daily basis" in the wake of the Tucker Carlson's controversial comments on immigration.

The hosts said Tucker's remarks, which resulted in a mass boycott from advertisers, is proof that the right-wing commentator uses his platform to "demonize" immigrants and cover the "president's lies."

Cuomo described how the "Fox fear train" ran into a road block in the wake of Carlson's immigration comments.

"The same ranker that fuels their demonizing of migrants and drives their numbers, also tends to turn off advertisers that turn ratings into revenue."

More than a dozen companies have pulled their ads from the show following Carlson's comments.

"Our leaders demand that you shut up and accept this," Carlson said on December 13. "We have a moral obligation to admit the world's poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer, and dirtier, and more divided. Immigration is a form of atonement.

"Previous leaders of our country committed sins; we must pay for those sins by welcoming an endless chain of migrant caravans, Carlson added. "That's the argument they make."

Responding to the comments, Lemon said he doesn't like to "criticize colleagues" but decided that Fox are fair game as every night the network becomes a "CNN, MSNBC criticism channel."

Lemon said that he doesn't believe that people should be boycotted for a "one-off" or the odd mistake, but this does not apply to Carlson and his show.

"For the most part, Tucker Carlson uses his platform to demonize immigrants almost on a nightly basis, to demonize this network almost on a nightly basis, to spread false information, misinformation, to spread the president's lies, to cover the president's back, to carry his water on a nightly basis.

"What he said about immigrants in this country, about making the country dirtier, and poorer, that is completely false," Lemon adds. "That is the opposite of what we do on this network every day."

In response, Cuomo said he does not consider Carlson and other pro-Trump broadcasters as his colleagues in journalism.

"They have different tactics, they have different reasons for doing it, and they have different goals of what they're trying to do," Cuomo said. "I don't consider him a colleague. It doesn't mean he doesn't have the right to say it, but so do advertisers have the right to respond to what he says."

In a statement, Fox News said they will not allow Carlson to be "censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts."

"While we do not advocate boycotts, these same groups never target other broadcasters and operate under a grossly hypocritical double standard given their intolerance to all opposing points of view," the statement said.
