July 16th, 2010 9:57 AM
According to the Daily Caller's Tucker Carlson, people that work for MSNBC hate Keith Olbermann. "I'm not saying every person at MSNBC despises him but I would say he's the most disliked person in the building by a factor of 10," Carlson told Mediaite's Steve Krakauer.As NewsBusters reported Thursday, the Daily Caller recently purchased KeithOlbermann.com.With this in mind, Krakauer and…

If It Works For Chris . . . Carlson 'Announces' Senate Run

December 5th, 2008 9:06 AM
Always irreverent, Tucker Carlson seems freer than ever to aim a few jabs at his network and the people that work there.  On today's Morning Joe, Tucker landed a one-two punch. With all the talk focusing on Detroit, Carlson let the cat out of the bag that NBC is implementing layoffs of its own.  Tucker played off that news, tweaking Chris Matthews along the way, by announcing that he too was…

Weekend Captionfest II

March 15th, 2008 4:07 PM
Appearing on the last episode of Tucker on March 14, 2008, Barack Obama fan and LA Times columnist Rosa Brooks grimaces after claiming Obama "probably wasn't listening" in church when Rev. Jeremiah Wright made his controversial statements.

'He Probably Wasn’t Listening in Church

March 15th, 2008 10:32 AM
I've enjoyed Tucker Carlson's show and can't let it pass into history, as it did last night, without a mention here. MSNBC has said that Tucker will remain at the network as an at-large commentator, and I have a feeling that, liberated from show-host concerns, he might become even more uninhibited in the expression of his quirkily conservative/libertarian views.So let's usher Tucker out by…

Bill Press: Hillary Has 'B---- of Brass

March 13th, 2008 7:11 PM
Even Tucker Carlson, MSNBC's uninhibited house libertarian, was a bit taken aback. But good Dem Bill Press has had the, um, gumption to say what others may have thought about Hillary Clinton: that she has "balls of brass." Press's comment came on this evening's Tucker in the course of a discussion of Clinton's shameless assertion that the Michigan primary was "fair" despite…

Stephanie Tubbs Jones, on Mark Penn."It's disgusting for him to do this . . . that's just disgusting." -- Clinton supporter Hilary Rosen.Mark Penn sleeps with the fishes. Metaphorically speaking only, of course.On this evening's Tucker, Clinton's chief campaign strategist came in for some industrial-strength opprobrium…

Edwards Advisor: Hillary Should Have Emphasized Her 'Warmth and Likabi

February 27th, 2008 8:18 PM
Of all the qualities Hillary might have emphasized to her advantage, can you imagine basing her campaign on her "warmth" and "likability"? Chris Kofinis can. The former communications director of the John Edwards campaign appeared on Tucker Carlson's show this evening.Kofinis offered his only-slightly premature post mortem of the Clinton campaign.

'Howard Wolfson's Always Calling Around Threatening People

February 25th, 2008 10:41 PM
Tucker Carlson, on his MSNBC show this evening, describing the Clinton campaign's press relations . . .TUCKER CARLSON: They're awful to the media: let's be totally blunt. They're awful to the press. They treat the press like enemies. [Clinton Communication Director] Howard Wolfson's always calling around threatening people. Threatening people! News organizations! They do that! People hate you if…

Decline HillaryCare? Suffer An 'Outcome

February 15th, 2008 9:35 PM
You vill obey update . . . The domestic policy differences between Hillary and Obama are negligible. But the Clinton camp likes to claim that his national health care plan would leave 15 million people out, whereas hers covers everyone. Let's put aside for the moment the fact that former Clinton cabinet member Robert Reich says the Obama plan would actually wind up covering more people. The key…

Pimp Gate Update: MSNBC's Ethics Don’t Extend to Bush Twins

February 11th, 2008 1:20 PM
As NewsBusters has been reporting, MSNBC's reaction to David Shuster's "pimped out" Chelsea Clinton comment is an extraordinary example of the double standard that exists at this admittedly left-leaning cable network. In fact, the goings-on since Shuster first made this remark last Thursday make it crystal clear that potentially insensitive comments directed at the Clinton family are…

February 10th, 2008 7:31 AM
Here's more buzz about how much trouble Newsbusters eagle eye Mark Finkelstein has caused for MSNBC's David Shuster. (He was first on this, people.) Through the Inside Cable News blog, we see the blog Big Head DC reports buzz that bosses at MSNBC threatened to fire David Shuster "on the spot" when he didn't immediately pound his chest and ask for forgiveness for suggesting Chelsea…

Should Olbermann Apologize for Accusing Bush of Pimping Petraeus

February 9th, 2008 7:49 PM
As NewsBusters readers are fully aware, MSNBC's David Shuster has apologized and been suspended for asking a guest on Thursday's "Tucker," "[D]oesn't it seem like Chelsea [Clinton's] sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?" As if that wasn't enough, on Friday evening's "Countdown," host Keith Olbermann also apologized (video available here): David has…

MSNBC’s Shuster Suspended for 'Pimped Out' Chelsea Remark

February 8th, 2008 5:47 PM
Although MSNBC representatives make disgracefully offensive comments about President George W. Bush on a daily basis, it appears there is something the network won't tolerate: over-the-top remarks about Chelsea Clinton.Such appears to be the case as MSNBC correspondent David Shuster has apparently been suspended for comments he made about the former first daughter on Thursday's "Tucker.…
