Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been blatantly cheerleading Russia on the air, and it's earned him favorable mentions on state-controlled media as they broadcast clips from his Fox News show on Russian TV. A screencap shared by Daily Beast columnist and Russian media analyst Julie Davis on Sunday showed Carlson's comments airing on state-controlled media outlets Rossiya-1 and RT.

Davis also shared a clip where she said state TV host Vladimir Soloviev mused that Carlson might be jailed in the U.S. for espousing his pro-Russia views. "I wonder how long it will take before Tucker Carlson is put into prison as a Russian agent," Soloviev said, according to Davis's translation.

Soloviev knows that Carlson won't be jailed, and the trollish remark is a clever bit of projection from a regime that's punishing people at home for speaking out against the war. But it's illustrative of how closely Carlson's talking points match Team Putin's preferred narrative.
