Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson offered viewers audio of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo discussing former CBS morning anchor Charlie Rose and his handling of woman, and what it meant to him with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
Transcript as follows:

COHEN: Sure, why not? But you’re in —

I mean, what the bleep?
COHEN: It’s a problem. And now you saw —
CUOMO: So, I am careful with the media always. I’ve always told you, the media is not your friend.
