  • “Patriot Purge” is a three-part series that will air on Fox Nation starting Monday.

  • Tucker Carlson received a backlash after releasing a trailer for the documentary earlier this week.

  • CNN presenter Jim Acosta said Carlson was inciting more right-wing violence in the United States.

On Saturday, CNN presenter Jim Acosta criticized Fox News, its owners, and Tucker Carlson’s upcoming documentary on the January 6 Capitol uprising, “Patriot Purge,” which he dubbed a “propaganda flick.” and “Proud Boy porn,” referring to an alt-right, white nationalist hate group.

“The reason federal investigators and millions of Americans are terrified of right-wing violence in this country is because it continues to happen, and Tucker Carlson is inciting more and more of it,” Acosta said.

Earlier this week, Carlson received an immediate reaction after releasing a trailer for the upcoming series, which suggests baselessly that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was behind the January 6 riot. He even received criticism from one of his Fox News colleagues, Geraldo Rivera, who said in a tweet that the “false flag” conspiracy theory advanced in the documentary is “bullshit”.

The three-part series is slated to air on streaming service Fox Nation from Monday. Acosta said the Murdoch family, who run a media empire that includes Fox News and other media, “is profiting as American democracy is on fire.”

“The Murdochs and Tucker Carlson, their prime-time arsonist, seem determined to drag this country into civil war,” he added. Acosta said.
