Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is under fire from the Hollywood elite, with A-list director Judd Apatow calling for an advertiser boycott of his prime-time show on Fox News. Insurance company Pacific Life pulled ads from Tucker Carlson Tonight Friday after the host made remarks critical of U.S. immigration policy.“We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer, and dirtier, and more divided. Immigration is a form of atonement. Previous leaders of our country committed sins; we must pay for those sins by welcoming an endless chain of migrant caravans,” Carlson said in part. The company said in a statement that they will need to “reevaluate” their “relationship” with his show after his remarks. Director Judd Apatow, who helped launch the career of Lena Dunham, seemingly took the Pacific Life decision as inspiration to promote further ad boycotts, making a number of social media posts … [Read more...] about Judd Apatow Promotes Ad Boycott of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson

Twitter is declining to approve new “verification” checkmarks for a number of Fox News employees, sources familiar with the issue have told The Daily Caller, including for reporters and support staff, such as producers and writers. The social media giant has traditionally provided celebrities, politicians and journalists with a blue verification mark to confirm the authenticity of their accounts. According to sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the company stopped verifying new employees at Fox News toward the end of 2018. It isn’t clear how many haven’t been verified, though a scan of the site easily revealed well over a dozen. It’s the latest development to follow a November dispute over the way Twitter handles threats to journalists made by users on its platform. A user that month published a message revealing the home address for Fox News anchor — and The Daily Caller co-founder — Tucker Carlson. A mob associated with the … [Read more...] about TAKALA: Has Twitter Stopped Verifying Fox News Staff?
Fox News host Tucker Carlson called University of Louisville professor Ricky Jones "racist" in a segment Monday night while the educator was trying to explain race relations in America. Jones was responding to a column he wrote in the Courier Journal where he questioned if social critic and novelist James Baldwin had any merit to raising the question if white Americans were "moral monsters" for their treatments of other races. But Carlson didn't see it like that. "You're abetting racism ... Wouldn't you say you're a racist? As you clearly are," Carlson said on the Fox News segment. The latest: 'Don't be like a Tucker Carlson,' says Ricky Jones after TV exchange Jones, the chair of Pan-African Studies at U of L and a frequent columnist for the Courier Journal, tried to explain that he was praising Baldwin for asking "difficult but necessary questions" when it comes to race relations. "Many of our white brothers and sisters may not be aware of … [Read more...] about Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls Louisville professor ‘racist’ on air
Some of you almost surely hate Fox News. But you know something? It isn’t really so bad. It counterbalances the anti-Trump, leftist, overreaching, sometimes hysterical bias afflicting too much of what too many of its TV competitors offer. And even without Charles Krauthammer, much of it is pretty darned intelligent and insightful. Minus Fox, conservative commentary on TV wouldn’t be gone entirely, but it would be vastly diminished, delighting people like Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama. The former president could hardly stand it that Fox didn’t think he was just about always right. Krauthammer didn’t, for sure. I bring up his name because he was widely recognized in varied political camps as an extraordinary newspaper and Fox News commentator. He was one of the best news analysts in the country, someone meticulously well-informed and thoughtful, a man whose mansion of a mind I myself have missed so much since his illness and recent death. Few could do what he … [Read more...] about Why America needs Fox News
Tucker Carlson says he traveled the country covering the 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and found enough material to write a book. The Fox News political commentator's new book, "Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution," published Tuesday and is likely headed to the New York Times best-seller list based on early sales at amazon.com. Carlson — a frequent visitor to Southwest Florida — will sign copies of the book Friday at the Costco in North Naples. "The premise of the book is really simple: Why did Trump get elected?" Carlson said Monday in a telephone interview. More: Teacher publishes children's book about eaglet E8's survival story "Satisfied countries aren't going to vote Donald Trump into the White House.
