https://www.vice.com/en/article/z3nkv8/the-kremlin-is-reportedly-thrilled-with-tucker-carlsons-ukraine-coverage

Quote :
"The Kremlin reportedly told government-friendly media outlets in Russia it was “??essential to use as much as possible” clips of Tucker Carlson pinning blame for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on the U.S., NATO, and Ukrainian government, according to leaked memos obtained by Mother Jones.

The memo, dated March 3, says that Carlson “sharply criticizes the actions of the United States [and] NATO, their negative role in unleashing the conflict in Ukraine, [and] the defiantly provocative behavior from the leadership of the Western countries and NATO towards the Russian Federation and towards President Putin, personally.”

Carlson’s criticism of American politicians and of Ukraine in the immediate aftermath of the invasion last month was translated and replayed on Russian state TV.

“Before [the U.S. enters a conflict in Eastern Europe] it might be worth asking yourself… what is this really about? Why do I hate Putin so much?” Carlson said, ostensibly comparing the Russian president to American liberals. “Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him?”

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment from Mother Jones, nor did they immediately respond to a request for comment from VICE News Monday.

Though Carlson denounced Putin and his decision to start a war with Ukraine once the full-scale invasion began, he’s since pivoted back to a more Russian state-friendly line.

Last week, for example, Carlson implied that Vice President Kamala Harris had goaded Putin into the invasion by saying during the Munich Security Conference last month that she “appreciate[d] and admire[d]” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s “desire to join NATO.”

“The invasion was no surprise to the Biden administration,” Carlson said, describing Harris’s comments effectively as an “up yours” to Putin. “They knew that would happen—that was the point of the exercise.”

Another memo, dated March 10, cited Carlson’s criticism of Western sanctions against Russia and how they might impact Americans. “If you want to get to the bottom of it, just think about who will suffer the most from sanctions?” Carlson said. “The answer is not on the surface. Middle-income Americans will suffer.”

The memo reportedly said that Carlson’s argument “can be reinforced with a selection of reports that enthusiastically encourage Americans to tighten their belts in the name of saving Ukraine.”"

It’s funny the gop went from running Romney who said Russia was the greatest geopolitical threat, to now having pundits who want American to run like Russia with trump at the head.

^^^ Generally speaking, I assume it's intended to politicize and discredit the Special Counsel's findings when they're released.

Why Tucker specifically? Perhaps it's an attempt to get back in Trump's good graces after it was revealed that he was badmouthing him behind his back.

Yeah, I get that... but I just don't see how it was "legal", or whatever. Why does McCarthy get to decide which news organization/talking head gets it? Seems like Democrats and other media/journalist would be raising hell about the impartiality (and legality?) of the decision. And I may have missed some of it (I didn't really follow very closely), but I haven't beard much of an uproar other than some people saying Tucker shouldn't get it.

Yeah, seems awfully weird to me too.

Quote :
""I didn't see what was aired," McCarthy said, insisting that he gave Carlson -- and no other media outlet -- access to the tapes for the purpose of "transparency.""

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/kevin-mccarthy-regrets-giving-tucker-carlson-jan-6/story?id=97697384

How is that transparency? What does that even mean?

Either ABC really messed up that quote or it is just another case of politicians just saying literal bullcrap. Reminds me of that clip where Pelosi was questioned about insider trading from a few years ago.

Although I guess maybe this is some form of concession that McCarthy is making to the republicans who were initially opposing his speakership? I don't even know

Romney-->

what was his reaction?

that it probably happens on all networks/media outlets

and then that the left doesn't have to do stuff like that, because they own all the other media anyway. Which, now that I think about it, doesn't make sense--it wasn't "the left" or "the right"--it was Fox News, lying their asses off at every turn, knowing full well what they were doing. But, at the moment, my reaction was a kinda sharp "NO, [I]nobody[/I] needs to do stuff like that. There's no excusing it."

And he did agree with that.

...but I don't get the impression he'll stop watching Fox. Baffling.

Him being fired from Fox is not a good thing.

Fox actually had some reigns on him. He'll be just as popular as ever running his own program on his own website and will be even crazier.

Lol he will be JUST AS POPULAR on his own website vs the massive platform that is Fox News? Are you crazy? Surely this must have happened have happened 100 times before that you can point to as evidence right? I'll be waiting.

also his private messages don't point to him being crazy. seems like he was mostly performing for clicks/views/$ a la Alex Jones or any of the other pieces of shit poisoning people's minds for $.

Ok. Well let's just see. He'll end up somewhere I'm sure, and he'll be more unhinged than before.

As far as his popularity, you're all right about the old folks not tuning in to a website.
