Tucker Carlson confronted Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple over his coverage of his employer, asking "Why don't you cover your own paper's shortcomings?"
"In case after case," Carlson charged, "you’ve failed to cover your own paper running fake or misleading things."
The "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host took issue with a December story in which the Post claimed that Russian hackers had infiltrated the U.S. power grid via a Vermont utility company. The paper later retracted that portion of the story.
"I wrote a very hard-hitting piece about that situation," said Wemple.
"You never bothered to talk to your own reporters, [who are] presumably in the same newsroom that you’re in," Carlson responded.
