Tucker Carlson and Bubba the Love Sponge

Does this mean we can cancel Tucker?

Only The Left holds folks accountable... The Right? Not so much. I wonder if those dudes who made a stink about James Gunn will make a big deal about this :hmm:

So basically his tweet is just doubling down that he believes in what he said. That would be a bold move for a normal person. But, I can see a Fox News "conservative" getting away with it.

He already fired up the Fox News base with his defiance.  I imagine sponsors will pull out because of optics, but then we’ll just get Tucker Carlson Tonight presented by My Pillow.

He'd have to say something that would upset his viewers in order to get in trouble like, "Black people are awesome," or "Wealthy people should pay more taxes."

I think it is pretty clear at this point that the best tactic is defiance. It worked for Trump. It seems to be working in Virginia too. For the actual decent folks, apologies don’t matter, track records of change don’t matter. Just say you don’t care and you will probably survive until the outrage machine finds the next target.

No, Fox has gone so far down the sewer, thus won't affect him. It's shameful.

 

He knows he's safe because he won't even attempt a half assed apology. 

 

I do agree that we've seen that not apologizing and/or just winging it seems to help a lot.

 

But out of curiosity, what changed between 2016 and 2017 when several commentators stepped down and filed lawsuits against Fox, Bill O'Reilly (who was in the same time slot as Tucker) was ousted, and Roger freaking Ailes was ousted, and now? Because Fox was the same piece of shit then as it is now.

I'm guessing because Bill and Roger were costing them money with the lawsuits?

 

And Bill Shine? And Eric Bolling?

 

Is Tucker Carlson the God Amongst Men who's immune from repercussions for something he does who wouldn't cost them money if people sued?

I don't really know what answer you're looking for.

The answer is nothing's changed, so Tucker could potentially get fucked (not literally since it's Tucker) from this or another scandal.

I remain skeptical. 

 

Unless there's a sexual harassment suit filed or something.

Yup, I agree that's a more surefire way he faces consequences.

It's still fucking revolting, though. No respectable network should give a slimeball like Tucker airtime.

 

However, Fox isn't remotely respectable.

Who is going to sue because Carlson said gross things on a radio show? Or did I miss some additional detail?

Yes: the detail that he's not immune from punishment, and given the atmosphere at Fox, I'm not convinced any man there hasn't touch a woman's boob without permission.

The only meaningful punishment any of these on-air personalities get is to be fired. What has been the consistent reason for Fox firing people? Fox being on the hook for lawsuits. 

 

Tucker isn’t making Fox the target of a lawsuit by saying terrible things on a radio show a decade ago.

No kidding, I have no idea what you’re talking about. That is why I asked a question. Re-read the thing I originally quoted...it may not even be English :p

I answered your question, and don't blame me for misunderstanding simple English. :p

It really doesn’t. You brought up people who all were accused of sexual harassment and made Fox the subject of lawsuits. Carlson, to this point in the story, has just said terrible things that wouldn’t make Fox the subject of a lawsuit. What are examples of people at Fox being fired or otherwise punished for saying terrible things?

 

Laura Ingram made fun of a school shooting survivor not getting into the college he wanted, Fox didn’t punish her, and the ratings on her show went up in response to the whole thing.

Stacey Dash, actually. And Dick Morris was fired for being comically wrong.

 

Though that's still not the point even after I put it in bold.

Yes, the bolded parts are pointless because literally anybody could possibly in the future get in trouble for something they may have done that we don’t know about. Good call, worth posting for sure.
