Bill Kristol: Tucker Carlson’s show is “ridiculous”   May 15, 2017

Tucker Carlson…is a friend of mine…Tucker and Sean Hannity have become ridiculous.

To Kristol’s point, Tucker’s faux-“man of the people” schtick is only 2 years old. Prior to that, Tucker was the antithesis of the character he plays today…

O’Reilly is a phony

Sarah Palin is dumb

Tea Party activists are “morons”

Conservative censorship

In ’15, anti-amnesty activist Mickey Kaus resigned from Tucker’s website after Tucker personally removed an article exposing Fox News’ anti-conservative 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 credit where it is due, Tucker’s cynical strategery to trick Fox News’ elderly, low-information viewers has paid off handsomely.

Kudos.
