Tucker Carlson Responds to Latest Media Matters Attack: “We will never bow to the mob. Ever.”

Tucker Carlson Responds to Latest Media Matters Attack: “We will never bow to the mob. Ever.”

“One of the only places left in the United States where independent thoughts are allowed is right here, the opinion hours on this network”

Media Matters has a mission. It exists for the purpose of removing conservative voices from the airwaves.

They’re the same people who targeted Rush Limbaugh in 2012, and have been targeting Fox News for over a decade, as Professor Jacobson wrote in 2011, Media Matters Plans “Guerrilla Warfare and Sabotage” on Fox News And Conservative Websites.

This weekend, they launched a new campaign against Tucker Carlson who offered a strong response on Monday night.

Media Matters released a segment of audio from an appearance Tucker made on the “Bubba the Love Sponge” radio show in 2009. In the first part, he plays devil’s advocate in a discussion about the arrest of Warren Jeffs. Media Matters is clearly trying to imply that Carlson supports the sexual exploitation of children, which is absurd.

In the next clip, Tucker plays along with the hosts as they riff and joke at the expense of feminists and the implication is that Tucker is a misogynist. You can listen to the whole thing below:

These audio clips didn’t just fall out of the sky. The people at Media Matters went looking for them. They sat and combed through hours of audio looking for something to use to target Tucker and his Fox News show. And they have promised more clips to come.

Tucker tweeted this in response on Sunday night:

Tucker addressed the issue on his show on Monday night. Josh Feldman of Mediaite has details:

Tucker Carlson Blasts Liberal ‘Mob’ After Comments Unearthed: ‘They’ve Been Working Hard to Kill This Show’

Tonight he opened his show by railing against the liberal “mob,” telling his audience it’s pointless to explain how “words were spoken in jest” or taken out of context because “you are a sinner begging the forgiveness of Twitter.”

Without directly talking about those comments of his, Carlson ripped the “press release written by Democratic party operatives” and basically said he doesn’t want to play their game:

“One of the only places left in the United States where independent thoughts are allowed is right here, the opinion hours on this network, just a few hours in a sea of television programming. It’s not much, relatively speaking. For the left, it’s unacceptable. They demand total conformity. Since the day we went on the air, they’ve been working hard to kill this show.”

He concluded by saying Fox News is fully behind him and his show, and that “we’ve always apologized when we’re wrong and will continue to do that…but we will never bow to the mob, ever, no matter what.”

Watch the clip below:

Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire has written an excellent piece which explains the truth about Media Matters:

Media Matters Makes America A Worse Place, One Bad Faith Hit At A Time

This weekend, Media Matters released a compendium of old Tucker Carlson quotes from the period 2006 to 2011 – a period during which Carlson routinely called into the shock-jock show Bubba The Love Sponge. Carlson, among other things, called Martha Stewart’s daughter a “c***,” joked about fourteen-year-old girls sexually experimenting, and defended rape facilitator Warren Jeffs. It’s not good material. It also appeared on a show called Bubba The Love Sponge. A decade ago.

This was, from the first, an obvious political hit. Media Matters, contrary to media descriptions, isn’t a “media watchdog organization.” It is a political smear factory designed to perform precisely that function against anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton. The organization was founded by professional smear artist David Brock, in conjunction with the Center for American Progress, an organization itself founded by John Podesta, the Clinton White House Chief of Staff.

Hillary Clinton herself advised Brock on the creation of the organization. Mega-donor Leftist George Soros has poured money into the organization, announcing in 2010, “Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.” Media Matters had regular strategy calls with the Obama White House.

Read it all.

This has been going on for years. The left doesn’t think Fox News should be allowed to exist. They have the rest of the media, Hollywood and academia but it’s still not enough.

Quite honestly I’ve never been a fan of Tucker Carlson and I don’t watch any television “news” or “opinion” shows anymore. I see clips from time to time but that’s it.

However, if Tucker Carlson actually stands up to the mob and doesn’t back down and apologize I just may watch him from time to time. Because he will be one of the few, the very few people on the right with guts enough to stand up to them. And that will make him a hero to me because it’s hard to stand tall when all those around you are kowtowing.

All brutal dictatorships suppress all views that do not agree with their own. The media has become a PAC at best for the DNC and leftists.

The left, especially those of this AOC sock puppet group, are looking for a fascist communist blending, and that will not want voices calling against it.

I fear for the future of this country. We are being torn apart from within. Politicians who have sold their souls for even the illusion of power, and the only means of keeping power when you remove freedoms is through violent control.

What is so insane, about trying to take out Fox News, is that that network actually represents the last bastion of what the MSM represented itself to be in the lat 20th Century, fair and balanced. It aspires to emulate the standards preached by the news media since the end of WWII.

There is no need to discuss Media Matters, as it is demonstrably designed to force major news organs into conforming to far-left, liberal standards. This includes Fox News. What is important, in this discussion, is exactly what Fox News is.

Fox News decided, early on, to fill a niche market, by not conforming to the existing cable news business template. Instead of attempting to appeal to a single audience, it set out to appeal to a broad range of opinions based largely upon the time of day.

The morning segments are devoted to middle of the road viewers such as stay at home mothers, the suburban and rural homemakers. Shows include friendly discussion platforms and interviews and largely unslanted news. At noon, Fox programing begins to drift left while still appealing to the female homemaker audience. At the 1 o’clock hour, it begins to slip progressively further left, until 4 o’clock, when it begins to trend back to the middle. At 8 o’clock, programing becomes much more conservative to avoid being just another rabid liberal platform like those presented by the other cable news networks. And, this is repeated at midnight for the West Coast viewing audience. It is a brilliant business template. It assures Fox almost all of the conservative viewership and much of the moderate viewership. This places Fox squarely in the cross hairs of liberal political interests and, most especially, other cable “news” providers.

Have any of you ever wondered why the right NEVER does the same things to the left that they have been doing for years? Why are people like Maddow, Maher, Radditz, Pelosi or any of the big “Outters” of conservative pasts never subjected to the same dissection of their past as the right? Trump alluded to it early in his campaign but it never materialized. One reason it doesn’t happen is because the left has no shame or a sense of guilt. Spartacus admitted to almost raping a young 15 year old when he was a young man but had no fear of making it public. Why? Because the msm and the entire Demorat party will still back him. Look at the Omar case of virulent anti-Semitism and how she was treated by her own party. They circled the wagons and made her accusers the guilty party. Then compare that with Steve King’s treatment by the GOP! We need to fight fire with fire! Go after these hypocrites and expose every one of them for things from their past.

    I’d say that it’s because the left, including the media, closes ranks and defends the accused leftist passionately and aggressively. Remember Joy Reid? She spouted enough homophobia to sink 5 conservatives, but she’s still on the air.

    From the Shapiro piece linked and cited in the post: “The tactic works across the aisle. My business partner, Jeremy Boreing, and I, launched a direct counter to Media Matters to achieve a sort of mutually assured destruction with Truth Revolt. It worked. We helped take Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin off of MSNBC. It’s not difficult. A motivated group of politically-oriented people can remove the advertiser base of nearly any show”

Tucker to Media Matters: go POUND SAND. Bravo sir!

Q: “Have any of you ever wondered why the right NEVER does the same things to the left that they have been doing for years?”

A: Easy. The left owns the media. The right doesn’t have any tools to fight back with except Fox News and talk radio. And you never know what Fox News will do. Judge Pirro?

What’s funny about all this is that media matters has managed to achieve the exact opposite if what they were trying to do.

Far from silencing Carlson they have instead emboldened him. They should have chosen an easier target.

Dumb fucks! 🙂

Media Matters blew it, trying to shame a man who derives sustenance from leftist outrage.

I basically agree with all the above, but Tucker was really a jerk for calling into “Bubba the Love Sponge” in the first place. Was he really that desperate?

Fox News had zero anti Trump commenters, then one day they were all over the place. Where did they all come from? An anti Trump commenter makes a comment and within a few minutes there will be 6 likes. It’s a very simple to create multiple identifies and make it seem like a whole lot of people feel a certain way. Does this sway opinion? Apparently there are people who think it does and are willing to spend the money to have full time trolls.
