The Biden administration allegedly unmasked Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s identity.
Tucker Carlson wrote to social media, “The NSA now admits that it ‘unmasked’ Tucker’s identity after an intelligence intercept. Plus: the tyrants at Facebook confirm that they have been censoring this show.”
This prompted a scathing response from Fox News.
Fox News released a statement: “For the NSA to unmask Tucker Carlson or any journalist attempting to secure a newsworthy interview is entirely unacceptable and raises serious questions about their activities, as well as their original denial, which was wildly misleading.”
Additionally, Fox News host Mark Steyn made a statement on the network’s live television show: “We told you that the National Security Agency has been monitoring this show and the content of Tucker’s emails.”
Steyn continued, “According to a media outlet called The Record, the NSA has just completed its internal review of the matter. The NSA now admits that it unmasked Tucker’s identity after an intelligence intercept.”
“By law, the identities of American citizens are concealed when they’re caught up during foreign intelligence gathering,” Steyn added. “They can only be unmasked in extraordinary circumstances.”

Here’s the critical part of the NSA’s admission:
“…the nation’s top electronic spy agency found that Carlson was mentioned in communications between third parties and his name was subsequently revealed through “unmasking,” a process in which relevant government officials can request the identities of American citizens in intelligence reports to be divulged provided there is an official reason, such as helping them make sense of the intelligence documents they are reviewing.”
TRENDING 👇 Texas Considers Banning Ben & Jerry’s
Ben & Jerry’s is well-known for its radical left-wing activism.
Now Texas is considering banning the company statewide, Fox News reports. A top Texas official — State Comptroller Glenn Hegar — said he is considering banning Ben & Jerry’s statewide.
This move comes after the company announced it will no longer sell ice cream in “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” preventing some Israelis from buying the ice cream. Hegar has reportedly directed his staff to review whether Ben & Jerry’s or its parent company Unilever have violated the state’s “boycott Israel” laws. Fox News reported:
Texas law under Chapter 808 bars companies from refusing, terminating business or taking “any action that is intended to penalize, inflict economic harm on or limit commercial relations” with Israel… “Texans have made it very clear that they stand with Israel and its people,” Hegar said in a statement Thursday. “We oppose actions that could undermine Israel’s economy and its people.”
This decision is appearing to immediately backfire as critics allege it’s not only “outrageous and blatant anti-Israel,” but also it’s illegal. In response, Charles Mizrahi, who is editor of Alpha Investor and host of “The Charles Mizrahi Show”, said “Not only is Ben and Jerry’s boycott outrageous and blatant anti-Israel, it’s illegal. Israeli law requires the local distributor to sell in all of Israel. The distributor doesn’t have the option to pick and choose where their product is sold.”
