Elon Musk Joins Right-Wing Chorus Denying Capitol Riot, Reigniting Debate Over Footage Presented by Fox News

Elon Musk has joined the right-wing chorus denying that a violent riot took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, after Fox News aired select frames of security footage provided by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. This footage was part of a debut of over 40,000 hours of tape, and Musk's comments have reignited the debate about the Capitol riot and the footage that was presented. Many have argued that the footage was misleading and that the House committee investigating the riot had withheld evidence for partisan political reasons.
