Tucker Carlson has come under fire, due to remarks made over a decade ago on radio shows he would call into as a guest, which were recently dug up by Media Matters For America (MMFA). Washington Post is calling for Carlson to go.
Hashtag FireTuckerCarlson is trending.
Carlson released a statement and video in response and said Fox News still remains behind him.
Like Carlson, MSNBC's Joy Reid was also in trouble for old blog posts last year, but was not punished. Reid also used this website as a source to attack Jared Kushner's ties to Genie Energy in 2017, which MSNBC refused to comment on, but we had a giggle about.
Media Matters, quite ironically, has previously covered the "anti-Semitic conspiracy theory" of Genie Energy. In 2011 they called Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch's involvement in it a conflict of interest—something we of course agree with.
Although I think Reid should be fired for not telling the public about Genie Energy influencing journalists or the White House, the rules are straightforward, if Carlson does end up getting fired for this then clearly Reid must also be fired. This part is clear.
CNN's Chris Cuomo called on Carlson to repeat his words, to which we say, Reid should have to logically Tweet Anime Right News again.
