Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 14, 2018

The question, What happened to Tucker Carlson? is worth answering. If we can figure out how an intelligent writer and conservative can go from writing National Magazine Award -- nominated articles and being hailed by some of the best editors in the business, to shouting about immigrants on Fox News, perhaps we can understand what is happening to this country, or at least to journalism, in 2018.

o shouting about immigrants

That would be illegal immigrants for all you lib dummies. He doesn't seem to have a problem with legal immigrants but I guess you all don't care about that.

"That was the day Jon Stewart came on Crossfire and called Tucker Carlson a dick."

FTR he was calling Paul Begala a dick too.

I saw a clip of Tucker interviewing Michael Avenatti yesterday. Carlson couldn't be any more ridiculous. Starts off by saying he won't use his insult of "creepy porn lawyer" for Avenatti but the chyrons underneath say "Does America want creepy porn lawyer as pres?" and "Tucker takes on creepy porn lawyer".

Real TMZ quality material right there.

Tucker recently went on another racist rant against diversity so yeah he is shouting about all immigrants.

Actually the dick slur was a very direct insult against Carlson. It's quoted In the article, and I remember watching it live.

Tucker's always struck me as the type of guy who was bullied as a kid for being a nerd or misfit and internalized it. It wouldn't be fair to blame Stewart for turning Tucker into what he is today, but he's one in a long line of men who pissed in his now overflowing bucket. And the article raises a good point about the similarities between the two.

do you think "illegal immigrants" watch Tucker?

"do you think "illegal immigrants" watch Tucker?"

This is like one of those impossible rhetorical questions that both Tucker himself and Stewart asked. But I'd wager there probably are illegal immigrants who watch him, whether they agree or disagree with most important of what he says.

A better question is do transvestites watch Tucker, simply because of his name?

It all depends on the color of the legal immigrants' skin. Just like it does for you.

Not buying it. Humpy and the all the KKKlan have a "problem" with immigrants.

It's the basis of their ideology. Hell, it's probably one of the main planks in the party platform.

He decided to become a card carrying member of the immigrant-owned propaganda network, now elevated to State Media, so he will say whatever his handlers tell him for money.

A friend of mine went to boarding school with him for several years (Carlson married the headmaster's daughter, btw) and reports he was a dick even as a kid.

Didn't read article. Don't have to to know what happened to him.

It's the same thing that happens to all Fox talk show hosts. It's the same that many Fox hosts have openly admitted to. Fox is not a news a news outlet. It's an entertainment outlet that caters to an old, angry white right wing audience. If you watch any of the Fox commentators expecting truth and balance then you haven't been paying attention to what they have clearly been telling you. You are mark. You probably think pro wrestling is real too.

I don't remember him doing these disingenuous ambush interviews before he was on Fox. I agree there is something about the culture there which encourages and rewards people for acting like total douches. Megan Kelly was an extremely obnoxious twit as she was climbing the ladder before she got her prime time show. Then she became a reasonable human being.

OTOH I also remember Chris Matthews behaving similarly with some guests on his show, like Michelle Malkin.

I've gotta question along the lines of this 'headline'.

Where did the thread on the solar observatory shut down go?

Sorry if if I feel these types of things may mean far more than debate on politics today. IOW's, this site & many others are failing because more Americans are truly waking up. Not to be misconstrued with what many 'entertainers' today call being 'woke'.

They're the least 'woke' people on the planet.

So, I take it science that includes our star, sol, is just not to be discussed on this format? Well, it fits.

I think it just pisses liberals off to the enth' degree to have such an intelligent (once liberal?) at MSNBC, literally hurl truth bombs & realness at you freaks of nature.

Just my humble opinion..... but have a look in the mirror please.

No, Redial, but appreciate the effort.

The thread had 34 comments on it, mine being the last I saw several hours ago. Not insinuating...well yes I am. It's just a bit odd to me, especially in the corporate censorship of the internet era we are in, that the 1st thread on this subject to hit the 'Front Page' is now gone.

Even worse, the 1st several comments that I read were being taken, seemingly, seriously enough by guys like HeliumRat. Now, if I subscribe too much in people such as HR, to have a bit more authority on this type of s***, then please forgive me.

I do, and I hope I always will, respect any & all thought that is at least within reason.

Killing, and now I see "Back Paging' a different article on the same subject.............

Those are my thought's. I'm sure I'll see a banishment of some type for this, so check y'all later. Hopefully.

Just yanking your 0.9cm chain, 9mmSkeeter.

Are you familiar with spectrophotometric analysis -- especially UV/Vis/IR Spectrophotometric analysis?

In a nutshell, you bombard the dissolved analyte one nanometer at a time from the lower UV wavelengths through the Visible wavelengths (Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, and on through the Infrared wavelengths and determine what passes through the dissolved analyte and what is absorbed.

You can do the same with humans of unknown origin as well, such that you may form a mental spectrophotograph of the unknown human entity depending on the types of questions or statements you ask. How do you handle criticism? Name calling? Etc.

Thus endeth the lesson for today.

The wacky tobaccy is much more strong than it was nearly fifty years ago, when I was in college and graduate school. Panama Red stole my woman and subsequently my head many times back then. I both respect and fear the newer strains of sativa, and always try to remain seated when I sample the indica.
