Tucker Carlson: O’Reilly is a phony

MP   |   Published April 21, 2017

This Monday, Tucker Carlson inherits the crown jewel of Fox News’ schedule– the coveted 5pm time slot held by Bill O’Reilly since the network’s launch in October 1996.

In those days, you may recall, Tucker was openly contemptuous of O’Reilly’s act:

There’s kind of a deep phoniness at the center of his schtick…he’s not right-wing! He’s a populist!

Ironically, Tucker is an even bigger phony than O’Reilly. Tucker’s populist, anti-establishment, defender of the common man schtick was adopted just ~2 years ago to trick Fox News’ elderly, low-information viewers.

Prior to that, Tucker was your run-of-the-mill D.C. hack.

Trolling Sarah Palin

In ’11, Greta scolded Tucker for publishing pornographic remarks about Sarah Palin (the uproar forced Tucker to “add context” to the piece in order to pass it off as journalism)…

Tucker was also a strong supporter of Karl Rove’s anti-Palin jihad…

Tea Party “morons”

In ’13, Tucker defended Karl Rove’s anti-Tea Party PAC American Crossroads— calling it a much-needed “gatekeeper keeping morons from running for office”…

Mickey Kaus

In ’15, anti-amnesty activist Mickey Kaus resigned from Tucker’s website after Tucker personally pulled 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.'”

To Tucker’s credit, his cynical strategery to paid off.

Kudos.

Tucker Carlson: Tea Party conservatives are “morons”

Every night, Tucker Carlson trolls coastal liberal elites with his plucky, yet affable tribalism. But this character was only written 3 years ago by the great Roger Ailes. Prior to that, Tucker was your run-of-the-mill, Northeastern moderate elitist.
