Tucker Carlson Tonight
During Friday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous host discussed some of the provisions of the Green New Deal, including the eye-popping idea that the Federal government will pay anyone who is “unwilling to work.” Carlson then began a discussion with Cornell University Law Professor Robert Hockett, who advised Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal. Hockett disputed the aforementioned provision of the Green New Deal but Carlson effectively proved him wrong by reading directly from a fact sheet and FAQ list posted on her website at the time of the Green New Deal’s launch.
As Newsbusters has previously reported, The Washington Post quickly rushed to the defense of Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam after a racially charged photo on his medical school yearbook page surfaced. The picture in question featured a man in blackface standing next to a man in a KKK robe. Fox News host Tucker Carlson singled out The Post on his show Friday night, accusing the paper of ripping the Republican and skipping the Democrat in the midst of a very competitive gubernatorial election.
In contrast to the broadcast networks, CNN, and MSNBC ignoring radical pro-abortion comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), a look at the Fox News Channel programs in that span (The Story, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox News @ Night) yielded 67 minutes and 23 seconds of coverage on not only Northam’s comments, unsuccessful attempts by Virginia Democrats to pass a late-term abortion bill, and how New York was able to push through such a law last week.
As honest blue-collar work in manufacturing and other industries have disappeared over the years, a condescending liberal media from the coasts looked down their noses and told those workers to “learn to code” to get by. But then, the same snarky advice was thrown back at members of the liberal media following a string of layoffs last week, journalists had a conniption. It was that blatant hypocrisy that Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson blasted during Tuesday’s edition of his show.
In a disgusting Thursday afternoon tweet, New York Times reporter Dan Levin solicited information from people on Twitter looking to “expose Christian schools”, as if they were some kind of a scourge. The Hill media reporter, Joe Concha unloaded on Levin for going into it with a “nefarious agenda” during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Over the weekend, NBC News political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd lashed out at those who would “tar all media” for their enthusiastic sprint to push impeachment following BuzzFeed’s false report. In a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Hill's Joe Concha blasted Todd for failing in his duty as political director and allowing MSNBC to mention impeachment 97 times.
The liberal media had been left reeling after a weekend of spreading misinformation and smears against a group of innocent Catholic high school students who were being harassed in front of the Lincoln Memorial. At the start of the Monday’ edition of his show, on Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson shamed those who jumped to the conclusions that fit into their narrative. Naming names, Carlson also called out those on the right who did the same thing.
On Thursday, news broke that Texas Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was named in a lawsuit accusing her of firing a female staffer in retaliation for their plan to sue the Congressional Black Caucus for an alleged rape she was a victim of. While the news was slow to circulate, it broke in the afternoon and thus gave the broadcast networks plenty of time to get a report together. But neither ABC, CBS, nor NBC decided to cover it that evening.
Between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, several Fox News shows have given attention to the case of three MS-13 gang members who took advantage of immigration law to enter the U.S. as unaccompanied children, and who recently allegedly made a stabbing attack in New York. Also of note, FNC was the only major network that recently informed viewers that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo pardoned a number of convicted former criminals, including several murderers, to help them avoid deportation.by the Donald Trump administration.
Leading off his eponymous Fox News Channel show on Thursday, Tucker Carlson began with what seemed like a relatively innocuous open about how the government shutdown is “enter[ing] its fourth contentious week” with talks at “a stalemate.” But it was then that Carlson launched into a sarcastic monologue that demolished CNN's Jim Acosta for his pathetically stupid self-own in a series of videos at the U.S.-Mexico border that inadvertently bolstered the case for a wall.
In the moments following President Trump’s address to the nation about border security on Tuesday, the liberal media sprinted to “fact-check” the President’s statements and claimed they were full of lies and misinformation. But in an appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, former Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan argued that it was the media that didn’t know what they were talking about.
Filling in as the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Thursday, Mark Steyn wasted little at the top of the program to slam the liberal media for their “hysteria” surrounding President Trump’s trip to Iraq to spend Christmastime with the troops. Dubbing it “yet another liberal media meltdown”, Steyn pointed out how they took “the opportunity to turn a presidential visit to American troops into an attack on Trump.”
