Tucker Carlson is key source for media he ’hates,’ columnist says

According to a columnist for the NYT, Tucker Carlson is a ’go-to source’ for the US political media he claims to ’hate’ and has called ’cowards.’ Ben Smith, former editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed News, outed Carlson as ’the go-to guy for sometimes-unflattering stories about Donald J Trump and for coverage of the internal politics of Fox News (not to mention stories about Mr Carlson himself).’

Ignoring the clear assumption that the sole NYT source for this story is telling the truth, these articles feel like they were written in an alternate reality that ignores all other context. The theme of the story is clearly meant to be a dig at Carlson, yet in doing so the premise put forth is that Carlson is now a top source for all these publishers. Publishers who have all argued he was an untrustworthy, inaccurate, etc source of information at one time or another. It is like they do not realize they have dirtied themselves in this attempt to dirty Carlson with his fans.

Eh, carlson is one of the few people willing to do in depth coverage of the failings of democrat management, like the homeless problem in California... I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt over a single NYT columnist.

If you can't compete with someone's ratings and viewership just make up some flimsy excuses to try and discredit them.

Yeah Tucker is hated because he spreads racism, bigotry, and authoratarianism. Not surprising a wealthy heir thinks hes superior to someone else.

Tucker Carlson is the only tolerable source for news reporting. Yes he has his flaws but I can't listen to Maddow, Cuomo, Lemon and Stelter to name a few. I even can't tolerate Hannity.

He's got 3 times the viewership of the top show on CNN, so it's not surprising they throw shade at him. Everyone targets the top dog.

My response to this op-ed is my own view, yes and no. It's missing alot of context and generalizing media as a whole. You can say the same thing about pretty much any talking head .

Carlson is an investigative reporter who bases his ideology on facts, not rumors, which iratates the left .

Its no surprise that Tucker Carlson is stirring the pot on both sides, if that's what it takes to get ratings, because he is in the business of getting ratings.

Tucker is the Man. Better ratings than any other man or woman or they or them or anybody else. Haters gonna hate. Must be awful,hating and being angry all the time. If I hear someone say something stupid,I think,now they are stupid. Why do y'all let everything offend you? Bunch of wimps.

Just a generic formated spin article that reads "insert reporters name here." Truckers just made/reinforced the hatred that some have for him.

Previously known as the 3 rules of lying, now the 3 rules of fake news: 1. Admit nothing. 2. Deny everything. 3. Make counteraccuations.

Tucker is the source for a newspaper that doesn’t give out the identity of their sources! Are you saying your fake news and/or can’t be trusted?

I love how Tucker tries to appear to be a everyday working man. He is the 'man' and the epitome of what you claim to hate.

Reading many comments on here about Carlson’s so~called honest, factual news reporting is mind boggling. Those that think he’s actually a credible new source are brainwashed, mindless simpletons.

Snitch b*tch. It's all just a game to him. He doesn't care about anything. Trust fund baby playing a game.
