There was a point in time when Tucker Carlson couched his language. While it was easy to figure out what the Fox host was all about, he wasn’t so verbal about it.
That all changed after the November election, tough. Carlson now openly pushes white supremacist talking points on a nearly nightly basis. And competitor Joy Reid recently identified Carlson as America’s most prominent White nationalist.
The MSNBC host began, “Arguably the greatest threat to our democracy continues in its quest to rot this country out from the inside. No, no. Not the Republican Party this time. I’m talking about Fox News. Tuckums Carlson, the new prep school Alex Jones is defending his January 6th fake-u-mentary.”
Reid continued, “It’s not just the fact that Fox News is giving a nightly platform to our most prominent White nationalist. It’s also the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal and its editorial page publishing Mango Mussolini’s unhinged letter, again vomiting out the Big Lie and then saying, ‘It’s news, even if it’s vomited up bananas.”
