Carlson mentioned on his Tuesday Fox Information present, “A fast piece of stories from the world of massive tech. We spent the day listening to from outdated school classmates and folks we had been in contact with for 30 years. It was good, however there was an event for it. Jeff Bezos had certainly one of his minions pull our dusty school yearbook and to see if we are able to do something naughty on the age of 19, that feels like enjoyable. Tell us when you hear any extra good tales. Earlier than he drops any extra of us billions on opposition analysis, he ought to that it shouldn’t have an effect on any election final result.”
Calling Carlson’s program a information present is fake promoting.
What Carlson could possibly be referring to as one thing naughty was his membership in a society named after Harvey Milk’s assassin:
Maybe that is the story that @TuckerCarlson was making an attempt to get forward of. In his school yearbook, he listed himself as a member of the “Dan White Society.”

Carlson is clearly scrambling and making an attempt to get forward of a Washington Publish story that he views as damaging. Carlson was utilizing the usual conservative media strategy of making an attempt to discredit the messenger earlier than the story.
Tucker Carlson in all probability has sufficient skeletons in his closet to smash his media profession many instances over, so it is extremely attainable that his homophobia is the tip of the iceberg. Carlson is already the mass media beacon for white supremacy in america, however homophobia is perhaps a bridge too far for the community and a few of his viewers.
Carlson is doing injury management, which implies that he’s nervous about one thing that’s about to drop.
