the President of the United States of America said nazis were 'very fine people', so of course we're focusing on Media Matters instead of the racism currently infesting both the white house AND the Republican party.

also - Trump is apparently tied to a sex trafficking madam who belongs to his country club and we've already moved on from that story.  Because why would anyone care if there's even a small chance that our president is renting whores from a chinese sex trafficking ring....its FAR more important to attack a leftie over at Media Matters!

Maybe they can both go away never to influence people again.

Tucker Carlson is kind of like Clark Kent except he doesn't turn into Superman and he's a douche.  Plus, Lois Lane may not be "primitive" enough to be compatible...

By primitive I assume you mean underage. Tuck seems to have an awful lot of thoughts on that topic.

I imagine Fox News mobilized an entire wing of their organization to comb through as many Media Matters' employees backlog of posts as possible, working around the clock, interns, admins, the guy who delivers mail, the ladies at the lunch counter. Everyone. Anything to whattabout.

Not gonna work.

I hope he's fired from his prime time TV show immediately.

It will work, because this is America and it loves nothing more than using false equivalence to justify bad behavior.

Orrr, they can both go away.

/also did not realize Media Matters was a big enough thing for this to even be an issue that needed mentioning

Carusone dismissed the allegations against the coach in Japan using an ethnic slur.  [ ... ]  He separately wrote that his boyfriend was adorable, "despite his jewry."

Your definition of "catty" and my definition of "catty" seem to differ, subby...

It's not. No one knows who Media Matters is, much less some guy who works there. Carlson is an actual public figure, there's actual tape, and lots of it. This isn't going to work at all.

There's that, too.

In relation to my earlier post:  he may have said some stupid things, but the important parts are what he believes and what he does.  I'll sometimes use vernacular that isn't exactly PC, but I'm still 100% behind equality for everyone (for example).

Look, guys. Tucker Carlson is a racist, sexist piece of shiat. That's pretty much what his show's about. The only reason he's gotten away with it this long is that his viewers agree with him and most normal people find it hard to believe someone would actually say that kind of stuff on TV. No amount of whataboutism is going to get me to stop telling anybody who'll listen what kind of person Carson is. Scurry motherfarkers, we're turning the lights on.

Tbh with Fox Noos losing all that lovely Simpsons scrilla, and Tuckface alienating advertisers with his unrepentant, double-down toxic bullshiat, I reckon his days are numbered. I look forward to his bitter and  increasingly unhinged youtube channel.

Nothing wrong with that, provided that you are willing to submit yourself to the same standards of behavior you demand of others, and, in the event that you break them, you face the same consequences you demand others face. There's a right way to handle this -just look at Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring- and Carusone is already failing to measure up to that.

Tucker Carlson isn't good enough to be Clark Kent.  He's more like if Jimmy Olsen was crossed with Sean Hannity.

That is a fair statement.  Carusone also sounds like a major asshole, and he should probably step down.  But no part of that excuses Tucker.

Nobody is saying that but have some consistency are we supposed to ruin someone over a handful of old comments or not?

This kind of shiat is exactly what I hate about the modern left. I'm all for universal healthcare, unions, fair wages, affordable and accessible education and all the traditional values. I just absolutely hate how it has fully embraced the outrage culture. Everybody must be totally pure and without any PC sin and the unclean will be shamed and cast out. Unless of course there is the chance to score some points against a right wing enemy.

Tucker is a piece of shiat but we knew that and he is consistently a piece of shiat. In this case our media matters hero decided to call Tucker out  over something he said in the past but I guess forgot about his own past and I feel that sort of selective morality is worse and choosing to let it slide is hypocritical no matter how you try and spin it.

What Carusone said was wrong but Carlson still goes on TV every night to rant about how terrible women and minorities are and about how anybody who isn't a corrupt and racist is an enemy of America. Why are you defending Carlson?

TFA:

In one 2005 blog post resurfaced by The Daily Caller, Carusone ranted about a Bangladeshi man who was robbed by "a gang of transvestites," appearing to be offended that the group was described as "attractive," according to screenshots published by the outlet.

That is a reeeeeally watered down take of what he actually wrote.

Here's the Daily Caller article with the screenshot
( NSFW language ):
https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/12/ang​elo-carusone-rules-dont-apply/

Attitudes toward trans people may have come a long way in 14 years, but that doesn't make what he wrote OK.

It also doesn't make what Tucker said OK either.

2019-03-14 08:37:55 AM  
Is Jewry the proper adjective here?  I'm trying to make that work in a phrase, it's not happening. Also, why is it that your President can spew racism and whatever hate of the day, but this little weasel is somehow newsworthy. I mean, doesn't it just give him more publicity and support?  Maybe stop shining light on these Republicaracists and focus on things that matter, like, anything else.
 
2019-03-14 08:44:35 AM  
Yeah the difference here is I dunno that "Media Matters" is a thing anybody knows about outside of fark or whatever. It's just blog. Some guy said stuff woooo. Don't care. He probably has 75 cents and a volvo. whoop


Shucker on the other hand needs to be reduced to 75 cents and a volvo level, like his big fat butt buddy Hannity. They are both too fat and have too big of a reach. They need to be brought low as a lesson to others to not be horrible fat whitey.

What about Trump! In the very. Boobies. Lol.

Fark's last omg bombshell article on Tucker Carlson described how he called a young woman "appealing" *gasp!* Oh, and "dumb".

This is the Miss Utah "like, such as" young lady who everyone called dumb. But it was doubly bad when Carlson said it.

The president of Media Matters is on record referring to a Japanese person with an ethnic slur and the same lefties who have been angrily shaking their pitchforks in previous Tucker Carlson threads are dismissing this guy as just being "catty".

It's not bad when we do it.

As someone said in another thread, the fact that Tucker knew what the age of consent is in Florida was rather telling.
