Replace one sexist, harassing asshole with a younger, more annoying version. Way to make a "change," Fox News.

I've watched Tucker several times. He is no Bill O'Reilly. Tucker always comes off as an undergraduate trying to impress the debate coach. He has this authentic earnestness that just makes him look like a juvenile punk on a debate team. I'm sure in a few weeks one of the "coaches" at FOX will give him a few pointers. Thereafter, he will show great dexterity in the areas of arrogance and bullying.

Tucker won't last in this position. Does anyone really think that Tucker can replace the Papa Bear? Really?
He's a quick fix that can only lose ratings as folks watch out of reflex for the time slot, and are confronted with a whiny little douche that they want to give swirless.

Because that's what you think about, when you first see Tucker Calrson: how many times did this guy get dunked in a toilet trying to ingratiate himself on the cool kids? And I think that the number of actual times would probably surprise even Tucker...

2) Carlson quit CNN following a heated argument with Jon Stewart on Crossfire in 2004.

That's a very charitable description of events.

Jon Klein (CEO of CNN), cancelled the show and didn't renew Carlson's contract.  With Carlson quickly claiming, "I didn't really want to stay; the grapes at MSNBC aren't nearly as sour as the ones here."

(Not a real quote; just indicative of his intent)

This is Tucker Carlson's static facial expression:

It's like smug ineptitude rolled into the most punchable face this side of Sean Hannity. Good god, if there was ever anyone who represents everything wrong with the regressive right, it's this man.
 
2017-04-20 01:54:09 PM  
Tucker is a smarmy dickweed, he should be a perfect fit at Fox.
 
2017-04-20 01:54:11 PM  
All the angry old white people that ate that shiat up did so because it came from someone equally angry and old.  I'm not sure how they are going to handle being told the same shiat by someone effete and relatively young.

Oh, yeah... "tragic"!

 In all seriousness, I am surprised the Hannity wasn't moved into the slot. That he is the only personality with a built -in audience  on the network  the week.

"Tucker Carlson said something really interesting and thoughtful on this subject..." has never been a phrase used in the English language, ever.  Fox news is attempting to replace the conservative's life-size Teddy Bear with an old dish rag. I can't wait to see the results.

Did anybody at fox vet this douce? His blog was often linked here in the olden days. Sexist and vulgar and not very entertaining, he'll fit right in at fox.
 
2017-04-20 02:02:51 PM  
So ... they traded a big steaming pile of shiat in for a tiny little dried-up turd?

Good jerb, Fox.

I guess putting someone who isn't an idiot on air is out of the question. LOL

I saw a story on Media Matters yesterday that during the Fox News 5PM show yesterday, that douche Gutfield was making jokes about the female co-host of the show giving people boners.  On the same damn day O'Reilly was fired for being a pervy douche.

Greg Gutfeld is a boner.

I tuned-in the other night, briefly, to see Schmucker Gnarlson in action. He got his ass handed to him by a Professor (missed his title) of some particular instituion who was discussing immigration - specifically California. Oh, boy. I wanted to punch my own face, and the TV. But at least Tucker got his ass handed to him.

He's too dumb to understand what is happening, too.  The CNN meeting between him and John should have ended his career for good.  Even CNN fired him.  Of course he was then picked up by Fox.

I expect him to last as long as John Gibson.  And be as thoroughly disgraced thereafter.

Wasn't that a different Tucker? Specifically, Tucker Max? Or am I misremembering due to excess vodak consumption.

You libby elitists don't get it.  No one has their finger on the pulse of the disgruntled blue collar worker quite like the kid born to a former US Abmassador and the Swanson Foods heiress, who went to boarding schools and and a small private liberal arts college in Connecticut, where he learned the value of earning an honest days work for an honest day's pay and making a living off the sweat of your brow.
 
2017-04-20 02:41:37 PM  
Yeah, I'm sure that the typical Fox News "likes having confirmation bias fed by arrogant douchbag" viewer won't notice much difference.
 
2017-04-20 02:42:34 PM  
So he's going for the hat trick of having a show cancelled on CNN, MSNBC and Fox?

invictus2: In all seriousness, I am surprised the Hannity wasn't moved into the slot. That he is the only personality with a built -in audience  on the network  the week.


I think Hannity already has a foot out the door waiting for Aisles to start a new network, or maybe Bannon after he officially gets shiatcanned from the White House.  Honestly, I doubt anyone was more surprised that Trump won the election than Hannity, because it seems like he was strongly angling for a spot on the Trump News Network after the election.

Quick google check, yep you are correct. Continue with regularly scheduled vodak consumption.

Tucker Carlson couldn't sexually harass a potato chip.
 
2017-04-20 04:52:00 PM  
I don't think Tucker Carlson has the same authoritarian air of "Of course I'm right and you're wrong" that Bill O'Reilly has. Carlson comes off as a smug know-it-all who likes to bully people, and that doesn't play quite so well. Carlson seems like a guy who'll smile with self-satisfaction while he's conning you, and even the most willing of believers tend to see through that after awhile.

O'Reilly's staying power has been due to the incredible confidence he projects into anything he says. You really get the sense he believes the nonsense he's spewing and that he really, truly thinks he's fair and accurate in everything. Even when he admits he's wrong about something (which is rare), it comes down to him saying he was only WRONG because he was so RIGHT. That's why, even when debating Jon Stewart, O'Reilly didn't fall apart the way Tucker Carlson historically did - O'Reilly was unbothered by being wrong and continued on as if he never had been.

 Nicely said, and that is the same impression I get. I'd like to add that in my personal experience, people who wear bowties outside of a formal setting have a higher d-bag/normal ratio than people who wear regular ties. This is a petty observation but it's been reinforced many times as I get older and meet more self-important assholes in bowties at 4pm. Just sayin'.
