 Tucker Carlson
Topic Originator: OzPar

This truly made my day. The odious Tucker Carlson has been chewed up and spat out by Dutch historian Rutger Bregman. Naturally, the segment below never got aired on Fox News...

That was an absolute classic the way Bregman turned the tables on Carlson who couldn't handle it and then showed his true colours.

Lol.Bregman's answer to all the world's problems seems to be divide wealth among those who haven't earned any of it.Brilliant,and they say they poor/less well off are not greedy.

Society would grind to a standstill under this policy.A front runner for the democratic party has said folks unable and unwilling to work would be taken care of in this system.

Venezuela are you watching?

We dont need to put cash into the pockets of the lazy Ritchie. We can spend more on improving communities, education and support....you know. Give them fish to nourish them and help them back to health then give them fishingrods and stock the pond.

Trump gave the rich a tax cut. Supposedly to invest in business and create new jobs.

They invested it in their own businesses buying stocks. How the F does any right wing evangelical businessman relate that to anything biblical?

You cannot worship Money and God. USA prosperity preaching fascist hypocrites are all going to burn in Hell.

There is nothing you can say to justify republicans continuing to support Trump(et) and keep any credibility at all.

Revelation says the Beast will fool us as he works miracles and creates a false dawn. You wonder how any informed Christoan would fall for the masquarade. Well after seeing how willingly the evangelicals in USA have let themselves be duped by the most prolific lying racist narcissist in the world just shows me how easy it is going to be.

In fact he is so bad...maybe this is old Nick's trial run.

Obama did nothing to close the tax loopholes.Clinton if she was elected would have been similar.The elites on both sides of the aisle have no wish to change anything.

That is how the free market works.Work,invest.Make use of the talents you have.

The other system advocates no one is an individual.In essence you are owned.

Just seen Carlson's reply and what seemed to irk wasn't Bregman's views on tax avoidance or the tax code,it all kicked off when he claimed he was the puppet of Murdoch and wasn't free to air any views other than the Fox corporation,anyone who has seen his show would know that he invites everyone on the show and let's them voice their opinion even when he doesn't agree.

That doesn't justify his reaction, does it? There's quite a contrast between the cool, calculated academic and the foul-mouthed professional interviewer. Even if it wasn't shown live you would expect a reputable broadcaster to reprimand an employee for that sort of behaviour.

I don't think he was attempting to justify it,he apologised for using profanity Bregman who taped the interview displayed it on the internet.

If Carlson's still in a job that tells us everything we need to know about Fox News.

Yeah it tells you saying sorry would be a good starting point.

I'm just wondering how the BBC or ITV would react if one of their interviewers spoke like that to an interviewee.

Live i suppose they would be gone but he had control over whether to air the segment and he chose not to for obvious reasons.Bregman chose otherwise.

Richie, it's so sad how you defend the indefensible when it comes to Trump and his supporters. Sometimes you just have to admit something is wrong whoever is responsible. There's no place for behaviour like that in broadcasting.

Well it would be useful to know what the standard is Eck.Look up Stephen Colbert and what he said about Trump.He wasn't taken off the air,sacked,nothing and he said waaayyy worse.

So you're justifying what Carlson did because someone else said something similar or worse. People should have their own standards.

I read today that it is (apparently) a common strategy for an interviewer to drop in a few profanities when an interview is not going as planned, and then use that as a reason to not broadcast the interview.
