Fox News said their ‘damning’ Biden documents got lost in the post and the takedowns were 1st class
Spare a thought for Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson who appeared to suggest he had some bombshell documents relating to Joe Biden which he promised to share with viewers … only for them to get lost in the post.

Here’s what he had to say (goes on a bit, relatively speaking, but it’s worth it).
“On Monday we received from a source a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family. We believe those documents are authentic, they’re real, and they’re damning … We texted a producer in New York and we asked him to send those documents to us in LA … He shipped those documents overnight to California with a large national carrier brand … But the Biden documents never arrived in Los Angeles. Tuesday morning we received word from the shipping company that our package had been opened and the contents were missing. The documents had disappeared.
“They searched the plane and the trucks that carried it, they went through the office in New York where our producer dropped that package off, they combed their entire cavernous sorting facility. They used pictures of what we had sent so that searchers would know what to look for. They went far and beyond. But they found nothing, those documents have vanished. As of tonight, the company has no idea – and no working theory even – about what happened to this trove of materials, documents that are directly relevant to the presidential campaign.”
And if you think he was opening himself up for ridicule, you’d be absolutely right. Here are our favourite 1st class takedowns.
Oh man looks like Tucker totally had the documents that were going to prove Hunter Biden's guilt but they got lost in the mail! What a believable turn of events! https://t.co/gioC1aGKmO

Maybe the documents went on a sudden mid-week fishing trip https://t.co/PxHlQqH27R

Ugh, I hate when I mail evidence of a Presidential candidate’s crimes and it just vanishes without a trace. Happens every damn time.

“If we only thought the documents were important, we would have made copies.”

To conclude …
So let me get this straight…
There was ONE SET of documents. Nobody made copies, made back-ups or took photos of the smoking gun that would take down the Democratic nominee.

And just to clear things up, the United Parcel Service (UPS) later confirmed that it had indeed lost, and then found, the package in question, reports the Guardian.
Phew, what a relief. The Biden election campaign will presumably implode any time soon, just as soon as Tucker Carlson finds a letter opener.
