    Fox News host Tucker Carlson is being criticized for telling his viewers on Friday night that they should distrust news reports from the “big news stations.”

    “If you're looking to understand what's actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they're telling you on the big news stations,” Carlson said, despite Fox News sitting on top of the cable news ratings for 197 consecutive months.

    I sent you that 2 weeks ago skippy. It was Rob Rosenstein's legal directive to Robert Mueller, you refused to read it. 🙄

    You're not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you??

    Yes, and by "big news stations" he is talking about the mainstream news that doesn't require a cable subscription. Of course, you would know that if you actually watched the program and didn't use snippets from one-liner quotes.

    Can you back up this claim you made? Is there anything else from the rest of this broadcast that supports your assertion? Can you post either a transcript of the show or a clip as evidence of what you claim?

    Common sense is my back up. I watch Tucker 2 or 3 times a week. Everyone that watches FOX on any reasonable level KNOWS what they mean when they say the "big" or "mainstream" news organizations. The whole reason FOX exists in the first place is because the "big," "mainstream" news organizations were filling the American public with left wing propaganda without anyone to keep them honest.

    You're reaching for straws here.

    And what sense would it make if you are correct, and FOX actually did implicate themselves in the statement. Obviously they were talking about the mainstream, non-cable media. Common sense.

    In what way is Fox not big and not mainstream? They are pretty right wing and might be moving in an alt-right direction editorially, but they are just the Murdoch Press. I'd dispute the notion that they are anything but a big business.

    Hmm, so you watch a racist 2 or 3 times a week, and you are spreading racist propaganda on this forum without remorse. Could there be a connection?

    You've argued against the idea that Carlson is a racist, even though that's obvious from watching his show, and the parade of racists guests he repeatedly has on his shows.

    You're not the most trustworthy opinion on him.

    And apparently you watch the show more often than I do, which makes your opinion trustworthy. So... you're a big fan, eh? You watch him 4 or 5 times a week?
