Project Veritas has released a recorded CNN editorial call where Marcus Mabry, Vice President of Global Programming, dubs Tucker Carlson’s nightly show the “white supremacy hour.”
In the nearly minute-long video released by James O’Keefe’s organization, Mabry discusses the “naked racism of Tucker Carlson,” branding his widely-watched show the “white supremacy hour”:
