“You are seeing now the press, which contains many reflexive defenders of Obama — many throne sniffers who instinctively suck up to power — you are seeing them try to dismiss this as old news.” -Tucker Carlson on his latest Nothingburger
Maybe they’re dismissing it as old news because — wait for it — it is! Eureka!
Because it’s already been on the internet for five years and Carlson himself covered it in 2007.
To say the press contains many “reflexive defenders of Obama” is preposterous. In reality a Pew Research Center study conducted earlier this year found that coverage of the president had been overwhelmingly negative leading up to and through the Republican primary season. If the press actually did include many “defenders of Obama” the race wouldn’t even be close.
Now I’m not saying Carlson is a spoiled, douchey, fratboy manchild, but, well, actually I am.
