    Tucker Carlson has an epiphany

    I wonder if that includes his shenanigans at the Rally for the Republic, regarding the events of 9/11?

    I saw this the other day...

    Good on Tucker for waking up. This isn't an easy thing to do. Especially, when all the incentives are there to keep the blindness going.

    My guess is that Tucker watches new media. Do that for long enough, it's impossible to keep believing the corporate press. Maybe he started doing it as a way to connect with the younger audience? Maybe it was to see how the new competition would affect his career. But once you start seeing how they ask smart questions that aren't even considered in the corporate press, it becomes impossible to ignore.

    I can't say that I'll forgive him for his earlier shenanigans, but I'm glad to see that he's acknowledging at least some of them.

    Saw it tagged on Greenwald's twitter feed. Greenwald seems to think it's sincere.

    In light of what he is exposing on a nightly basis, so am I.

    Fox has been trying to escape the "Main Stream Media" label for some time now.
    I expect they will use Tucker to further that goal.

    The idea seems to be to make people believe Fox is not part of the MSM.

    LOL

    It's just Tucker though. Everyone else on Fox has no problem with carrying the establishment narratives.

    Not everything is a hidden agenda. Perhaps Tucker is just on a long term contract and he was hired back when his views were different.

    Tucker was part of the media tribe, where people are blackballed with a wink and a nod. "That guy? Oh, he's one of those, a crazy wacko."

    Now, he's finally realized that when a rumor like that spreads among the media sheep, it's best to investigate what's really going on.

    And the public eats it up too. The most recent, blatant example was the cult of St. Fauci. St. Fauci was the bringer of truth, who waived off any dissenting opinion as ignorant, uneducated crazy talk. The media and a majority of the public fell hook, line and sinker, and parroted whatever they were told (the media being an easy sell, as their money often comes directly from the pharma-industrial complex.)

    I doubt Fox would ever fire Tucker given how much revenue they make from him.

    I mean it's still pretty evident that Fox has no qualms about quickly calling elections in favor of liberals. That probably pisses off Fox viewers more than anything else. And it's most likely because they would rather side with the leftist establishment, if it can in any way help preserve what's left of the right's establishment. Pick any issue of substance and Fox will fail you when it matters most.

    What's funny is that the leftists can't (or won't) differentiate between Tucker and the water-carrying neocons on Fox. They also intend to preserve the establishment if it means crushing alternative viewpoints (whether sincere or not). (which is why I wish the democrats wouldn't even comment on what goes on in the right, because basically their interference in the debate amounts to nothing more than "noise". Like, 'fk off, NPCs; trying to have an adult conversation here. Go play in the street or something.')

    If he's serious then that means he will eventually go off on his own and dig in, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Rogan needs to have Tucker on his show, and even let Alex Jones sit in for awhile... 10 million views.

    If I remember correctly, he agreed to be on that, IF he got the promise that no one would be discussing their belief that 9 - 11 was an inside job. The deal was made. But, then, someone broke that deal. So, he got mad and walked off. I don't blame him.

    Ron Paul himself said many times that he didn't agree with that 9-11 postulate, but some back then used Ron Paul and his movement to spread their OWN beliefs about 9-11. Seemingly, not caring one damn about how much they hurt Ron Paul by attaching his name to it.

    He can do more good where he is, in my opinion.

    Oh I know, more mainstream and getting to the ears that need to be woke up in the first place, but he will also only be able to dig so far and in certain places, commercials are commercials.

    Yeah, it was Jesse Ventura that made some comments on 9/11 that were, in my opinion, pretty mild.

    Carlson was the MC and made a big stink and walked off.

    Meh, water under the bridge at this point, 15 years after the fact: Jesse Ventura has lost his mind, Carlson has the biggest cable news show in the country by daily exposing the ongoing lies, cover ups and conspiracies of the ruling class and Ron is effectively retired.

    Would be interesting to know what Carlson thinks about 9/11 now though, considering the "inside job" aspect of it has pretty much proved to be true.

    I would say at the very least Tucker understands blowback with regard to foreign policy, which is probably more palatable than 'jet fuel can't melt steel'. You'll never get most people to agree that 9/11 was an inside job but you might at this point get many to agree that our government tends to swat at hornet nests until someone gets stung. (which is precisely what they're doing in Ukraine atm)
