Tucker Carlson debated a professor who said that if some Americans were less "ignorant" of the facts surrounding immigration, they would become more in favor of it. Ilya Somin, who teaches at the Antonin Scalia Law School of George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., said not all immigration opponents are ignorant, but the majority are. He said that due to citizens' busy lives they do not have time to research statistics like comparative crime rates versus American citizens. Carlson said that in many immigrant-heavy areas like California and New York, the welfare states have bloated over the last several years. Somin responded that Texas is an example of a state with high immigrant populations but steady welfare and crime statistics. Carlson said that many immigrant groups...
Muslim During the April 14th broadcast of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, host Tucker Carlson devoted a short segment to a case of female genital mutilation in Detroit. While the point of the segment seemed to be to highlight the situation while simultaneously calling out American feminists for their silence on this issue, it seems that another message may have been sent to viewers. Early in the piece, around 12 seconds in, an image of a star and crescent — the familiar iconography of Islam — could be briefly seen flashed over a picture of the doctor reportedly involved in the alleged mutilation. Below is a screen capture of that moment: Was this an attempt to subliminally broadcast an anti-Muslim message to Tucker’s viewers? Considering that the segment it
Missiles to Syria The United States launched 59 cruise missiles against a military airfield in Syria following a chemical weapons attack Tuesday that left nearly 70 dead. It is the first direct American assault on the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad since that country’s civil war began six years ago. Fox News' Jennifer Griffin reported that the Tomahawk missile strikes were fired from warships in the Mediterranean Sea. They destroyed portions of the military infrastructure of the Assad government, which U.S. officials are confident is behind the chemical attack. The target was reportedly an airbase at Shayrat, located outside Homs. Griffin reported that two warships based in the eastern Mediterranean, the USS Porter and the USS Ross, have been
David Goodfriend––who worked as a deputy staff secretary in the Clinton administration––said that Tucker Carlson is “turning into a high-paid smokescreen salesman for the Trump White House.” Well, tonight Carlson brought Goodfriend on to confront him about this. At issue here is the news about Susan Rice, and Carlson pressed Goodfriend on why he’s not more bothered by the alleged unmasking. Goodfriend said, “I’m bothered by our country being compromised by a number one foreign adversary in collusion with our president. That bothers me.” He explained to Carlson that he called him out in particular because “you seem to think that… you can distract your audience” by talking about Rice. Carlson told Goodfriend he’s just covering the news, not taking marching orders from anyone.
Maloney Interview On Friday, Tucker Carlson debated a Democrat who said Attorney General Jeff Sessions may have perjured himself and should resign. Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D-New York) said it was "extremely concerning that he gave false testimony under oath." "There is more than enough here that all Americans... should want to get to the bottom of it," Maloney said. He told Carlson that he would drop his call for Sessions to resign if President Trump appointed U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to conduct an independent investigation of any Russian contact. Hi said that since Trump re-appointed Bharara to his New York State post, and that he is known to be "tough" on his fellow Democrats like Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), he would be a fair investigator of Sessions.
