While the US watched new, bloody footage of the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, Fox News hosts disputed the significance of the deadly assault that left one protester dead and more than 100 law enforcement officers injured.

Fox News was the sole major network that did not carry the prime-time Jan. 6 committee hearings live Thursday night. Host Tucker Carlson began his program referring to the deadly insurrection as “an outbreak in mob violence, a forgettably minor one.”
