What’s Next for Tucker Carlson?

Well, now there’s no reason to watch Fox News anymore.  It should be interesting to see how Carlson decides to go forward from here.  I’m assuming he’s not hurting for money.  He should probably start a channel on Rumble and put up a paywall.  He’s one of the more interesting people in broadcasting.  People will pay to get his content.

The other possibility is he goes into politics.  That I see as more problematic.  Politics is a very dirty game.  If you don’t need to use it to make lots of dirty money it won’t be an interesting career.

I think Carlson could form some kind of relationship with the likes of Matt Taibbi, Glenn Greenwald, Salena Zito, Sharyl Attkisson and a few other real journalists to produce a media outlet that would provide the kind of reporting and opinion that can’t be found anywhere else in the media.  They would have believability.  That’s something that is so sorely lacking everywhere else.

If done right and without all the overhead that comes with a Fox News or a CNN, Carlson and a few reporters could break away from the dying landscape of network and cable news shows that no one needs or wants anymore.  News and analysis.  With the internet and a few resources like Rumble and maybe Elon Musk’s Twitter who needs studios and boardrooms?

Come to think of it, Carlson interviewed Musk last week.  Maybe those two could strike up a deal where Tucker’s content was available exclusively on Twitter with some of it behind a paywall.  It could make both of them a lot of money.  And it could serve as a model for the future.  I’ve heard that Musk wants to add a “substack” option to Twitter.  Having someone like Tucker Carlson as his first big “channel” might be just the thing he needs to steer talent to his platform.

So anyway, Tucker’s “firing” could be a very opportune moment to start seeing a new journalism.  Without the bloat of the dinosaur media, a cadre of people who want to tell interesting stories that have some resemblance to objective reality could provide a service that people would be willing to pay for.  I, even I, would pay a little bit for that.

Now it’s also certain that all the usual suspects on the Left will be gunning for Tucker Carlson.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a target for the Justice Department’s attack dogs.  Their hatred for him probably rivals how they feel about Donald Trump.  After all he’s another traitor to his class.  They’ve already once gone after his family at home.  He had to move away from Washington to protect them.  This is not a trivial threat.  Hopefully he’s made enough money to be able to afford professional security services.  But no one is safe from the abuse that the FBI can bring to bear.  We’ll have to see whether these problems crop up for him.

Well, these are interesting times.  Tucker Carlson has been the only truthful voice in mainstream news commentary.  I hope that he will be able to find a way to continue shining a light on the criminal activities of the Washington regime.  There isn’t any other voice out there that has both his reach and credibility.  Hopefully someone like Musk who has the reach and also the money to set up a platform for him will come along and take advantage of this interesting opportunity.

Sharyl Attkisson Investigates COVID Death Rate Inflation

Sharyl Attkisson reports on a county in Colorado where the locals discovered that not only was a murder/suicide added to the COVID death total but even two people who were very much alive were added in too.

Colorado finally got around to distinguishing between deaths due to COVID and those due to other causes where a positive COVID test existed.  The number dropped from 13,845 to 7,028.  Can you imagine if this is representative of the whole country.  As one of the coroners who exposed this said, COVID is a real disease but its death toll is being inflated for political reasons.

 

 

Sharyl Attkisson Summarizes Barr’s Interview

In her recent post “William Barr Has Suddenly Become Chatty—and He’s Provided Quite an Information Dump” Sharyl Attkisson summarizes Barr’s recent interviews.  It’s very well put together and even has some schedule info on Durham’s investigation (won’t end before Spring or Summer).  If you’re interested in what Barr says here is a good summary.

 

Sharyl Attkisson Tells Us Why Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn Was Targeted by the Russia-Gate Scam

Attkisson was spied on by the Obama Justice Department because of her sources in the Intelligence community and she knows quite a bit about how and why.  She points out that Flynn as the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under Obama knew what was going on and was supposed to clean up the FISA malfeasance.  And that’s why he was targeted.

Sharyl Attkisson Tells What Happens to a Reporter Who Defies the Media Narrative

Sharyl Attkisson is not a conservative.  She’s probably a liberal but apparently she’s also an honest journalist.  But when she let that honesty infect her journalism and threaten the Mainstream Media’s Narrative CBS shut down her ability to break stories they didn’t want seen.  When she left CS the narrative was that she was a closet conservative who was finally outed and had to leave the Land of Oz and descend into the nether regions where troglodyte reporters wail and gnash their teeth.  She tells her tale and it’s interesting to see how this should be all the objective proof needed to confirm the truth of the Narrative’s stranglehold over the Mainstream Media.  Here is someone who isn’t conservative but experienced what happens when you try to tell objective political facts about the Left.

Two Other Interesting Articles

Sharyl Attkisson was an investigative reporter for CBS.  But during the Obama administration she realized that CBS wouldn’t allow anything negative about Obama to be published.  She resigned and became an independent journalist (an honest reporter!).  This interview was very interesting.  In it she discusses the MSM’s abandonment of objectivity with respect to Trump.  Afterwards she opines that Trump has shown himself immune to the media’s weapons.

Tucker Carlson was part of the conservative establishment press when the Iraq War broke out.  He has since reconsidered the wisdom of that war.  Here is discussed his recent quarrels with Max Boot and Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.

Here is a link that includes links to the videos of the quarrels.

The arguments are very enlightening.  I think Carlson gets the better of it but I wish the argument didn’t involve so much shouting over each other.  It’s extremely sophomoric.
