“It’s just not accurate,” Cameron told CNN’s Hala Gorani.
“He has not apologized for it as far as I know, but the idea that white supremacy doesn’t exist or the idea that there’s something OK with a football field or a soccer stadium full with white supremacists is also wrong,” he said.
“It’s not journalism,” added Cameron, who quit Fox News in 2017. “It is opinion-making. It is entertainment. And unfortunately, it’s an entertainment that can catch on with a very viralized American. It’s horrible and it’s not right and it’s good that he’s on a vacation, whether it was intended or not.”

Carlson drew ire on his widely watched show Tuesday when he said white supremacy is “actually not a real problem in America.”
“This is a hoax, just like the Russia hoax,” Carlson said. “It’s a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power. That’s exactly what’s going on.”
On Wednesday night, Carlson attacked his critics.
“For the sake of the nation, calm down,” he said, as the #FireTuckerCarlson hashtag trended on Twitter and advertisers bailed. Carlson also announced he was taking a break, which a Fox News spokesperson said was pre-planned.
