... the Fox host Tucker Carlson has been forced to respond to radio recordings he made to the shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge 10 years ago in which he described women as “extremely primitive” and defended the now convicted polygamous child sexual abuser Warren Jeffs.
The recordings, released by the progressive media watchdog Media Matters for America, led to a social media campaign urging Fox to dismiss Carlson and calling on advertisers to drop their support of the show. [Source]
Tucker Carlson has recently had Tulsi Gabbard on his show and sided with her concerning all the foolish, failed, counter-productive regime-change wars and about the huge danger of global thermonuclear exchange between the nuclear-weapons superpowers, which would make the Earth a Hell beyond most people's wildest imaginations. What's more, Tulsi Gabbard is not a Zionist. That's why they've gone after Tucker just now. If they don't silence him, he'll have her on again and again during this Presidential-election cycle and right at the most critical moments of the Democratic-primary season. Plenty of paleoconservatives and libertarians don't know Tulsi's anti-war message but are mostly anti-war. She could win them over against Trump's pro-war, neocon positions. Media Matters would hate that.
Out of curiosity after writing the above but before posting it, I decided to see if anyone else had put 2 and 2 together about all of this. Guess who had? "Soros-Funded Media Matters Smears Tucker Carlson Over Decade-Old Shock Jock Radio Appearances." I hadn't looked at an InfoWars article since I can't remember when. Years now? I don't agree with all things Tucker Carlson, but he's not nearly as bad as the vast majority of his detractors. He actually believes what he says. That matters.
