On Sunday, CNN attacked Tucker Carlson and called him “the new Donald Trump.” Of course, for millions of conservative Americans, being called “the new Donald Trump” is a badge of honor!
“CNN host Brian Stelter called Tucker Carlson the ‘new Donald Trump,’ claiming that Fox News leadership encourages Carlson’s “radicalized content” to keep profits ‘flowing,’ according to the Washington Examiner.
“‘Every day, Carlson is throwing bombs, making online memes offending millions of people, also delighting millions of others, tapping into white male rage and resentment, stoking distrust of Big Tech in the media, generally coarsening the discourse, never apologizing for anything, and setting the GOP’s agenda,’ Stelter said on his CNN show, Reliable Sources. ‘Sounds like a recently retired president, right?‘ [emphasis added]
“The CNN media critic argued that the Fox News host is the ‘new Donald Trump’ and that Carlson has ‘taken Trump’s place as a right-wing leader, as an outrage generator,’ and as a ‘firestarter.’…
“Tucker Carlson Tonight, which has consistently been rated among the most-watched shows on cable television, came under fire last week after Carlson called Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ‘openly political.’ Carlson also said Austin is ‘accelerating poisonous trends already in progress at the Pentagon, the worst of these being the use of irrelevant criteria in hiring and promotion.'” [emphasis added]
