Each night at 7pm EST, Tucker Carlson does battle w/ coastal liberal elites w/ his plucky, yet affable demeanor.
But this character was written by the great Roger Ailes only 3 years ago. Prior to that, Tucker was your run-of-the-mill, liberal Republican elitist.
Tea Party “morons”
Tucker tells Martha McCallum that Karl Rove’s anti-Tea Party PAC American Crossroads is a much-needed “gatekeeper keeping morons from running for office”…
Tucker sides w/ Karl in his feud w/ Sarah Palin…
Greta Van Susteren
Greta scolds Tucker for publishing misogynistic remarks about Sarah Palin. After the uproar, Tucker “added context” aka threw in a bunch of shit to make it seem like a legitimate article (no judgment, MFP does that all the time)…
Anti-amnesty activist Mickey Kaus resigned from Tucker’s website after Tucker personally pulled an article accusing Fox News of pro-amnesty bias…
“It’s pretty simple,” Kaus said in an interview, “I wrote a piece attacking Fox for not being the opposition on immigration and amnesty — for filling up the airwaves with reports on ISIS and terrorism, and not fulfilling their responsibility of being the opposition on amnesty and immigration…I posted it at 6:30 in the morning. When I got up, Tucker had taken it down. He said, ‘We can’t trash Fox on the site. I work there.'”
But thanks to Fox News’ low-information viewers, Tucker’s strategery has paid off…
