Fox News host Tucker Carlson was more up in arms than usual Wednesday evening, because he claimed he had been on the verge of obtaining “damning” documents about Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, according to HuffPost:
“Carlson claimed a ‘source’ gave the Fox News show ‘damning’ documents about Biden on Monday. Carlson’s producer shipped the documents across the country via a ‘brand-name company,’ but they never arrived.
“Instead, the shipping company said the package had been opened and the documents were missing.
“The shipping company launched a search and called in security to interview everyone who touched the documents, Carlson said.
“’They went far and beyond, but they found nothing,’ he said. ‘Those documents had vanished.'”

Welcome to “the dog ate my homework” done as only Fox can do it.
Carlson went on to add that executives at the shipping company were “baffled and deeply bothered by this, and so are we.”
Yeah, it really sucks when you have damning evidence and it just so happens to get vanish right before you’re going to show it to the world on your TV show.
Social media wasn’t buying Carlson’s cock and bull story, but they did have plenty of laughter and mockery for him:
BREAKING: Documents Tucker Carlson never actually had that would allegedly blow up the election were so important that they were sent via DHL, and now can’t be found despite copiers, iPhone cameras and security cameras. 😂😂😂 https://t.co/9yKkDAUh2v

Oh for f*%! sake, seriously? Would have been a better story if your dog ate the damn papers. https://t.co/6yllQu7pU0

Wait, so I’m supposed to believe that Tucker’s producer *mailed* him a cache of election-changing documents — rather than just faxing them over, using their camera phone, or just adding them to a show slide — and said documents were stolen in the mail?
Laughably desperate. https://t.co/71bFSR22Ty

The mimeograph machine was broken.
They tried to call, but couldn’t find a phone booth.
Then they ran out of typewriter ribbon. https://t.co/EzjSeJjmPe

Fascinating tale. But the source isn’t simply resending you a copy why? https://t.co/YGQgmwWCJJ

Maybe Tucker can have Superman fly around the Earth and reverse time. Then he can get the Biden documents back and have the scoop of the century!
Or maybe Tucker needs to take an extended vacation and seek professional help.
