American Nationalist: part 1
How Tucker Carlson Stoked White Fear to Conquer Cable
By Nicholas Confessore
April 30, 2022 Updated 1:28 p.m. ET

Tucker Carlson burst through the doors of Charlie Palmer Steak, enfolded in an entourage of producers and assistants, cellphone pressed to his ear. On the other end was Lachlan Murdoch, chairman of the Fox empire and his de facto boss.

Most of Fox’s Washington bureau, along with the cable network’s top executives, had gathered at the power-class steakhouse, a few blocks from the office, for their annual holiday party. Days earlier, Mr. Carlson had set off an uproar, claiming on air that mass immigration made America “poor and dirtier.” Blue-chip advertisers were fleeing. Within Fox, Mr. Carlson was widely viewed to have finally crossed some kind of line. Many wondered what price he might pay.

The answer became clear that night in December 2018: absolutely none.

When “Tucker Carlson Tonight” aired, Mr. Carlson doubled down, playing video of his earlier comments and citing a report from an Arizona government agency that said each illegal border crossing left up to eight pounds of litter in the desert. Afterward, on the way to the Christmas party, Mr. Carlson spoke directly with Mr. Murdoch, who praised his counterattack, according to a former Fox employee told of the exchange.

“We’re good,” Mr. Carlson said, grinning triumphantly, as he walked into the restaurant.

2. Heh

Mr. Carlson declined to be interviewed for this article. Virtually everyone who did speak asked to remain anonymous in order to speak candidly about Mr. Carlson or his employer; the host is vengeful toward critics, and officials or media figures Mr. Carlson attacks on his show are sometimes threatened with violence. On his show Thursday night, shortly before The Times received Fox’s statement praising the program, Mr. Carlson sought to weave this article into his nightly narrative. He called journalists at the newspaper “obedient little establishment defenders” and asked: “Why do they keep calling us racist? Well, to make us shut up, obviously.”

12. The type of people who can actually stomach fux news will love this attention.

I deliver meals to home-bound, generally low-income people. Probably more than 50% have fux news blaring in the background. They are wonderful people but their main interaction with the outside world is via this pathetic cable.

Has a few exceptions. One is that greaseball Alex Jones, the others are the most popular Fox Noise propagandists.
I also have no desire to stomach extensive details about these shysters.

21. "Why do they keep calling us racist? Well, to make us shut up, obviously."

Except 1) that the actual cries of "racist!" are heavily outnumbered by thoughtful analysis that says that yes, you do work to reinforce white political power and 2) it never DOES shut you up...obviously.

Tucker Carlson Is A White Supremacist. And He's Giving Fox Viewers Exactly What They Want.

Dan Kennedy
WGBH, commentary, April 15, 2021

Excerpt…

But that was before former President Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election, before the insurrection of Jan. 6 and, most important, before Newsmax and One America News Network briefly put a scare into the Murdochs by showing that Fox’s audience, increasingly unmoored from reality, could no longer be taken for granted.

Thus we should have known that an uncontrite Carlson would be back at his perch Monday evening after enthusiastically endorsing “white replacement theory” the previous week. After all, Lachlan Murdoch, the heir to the throne, had defended Carlson earlier in the day in response to a letter from the Anti-Defamation League calling on Fox to fire its top-rated talk-show host.

“A full review of the guest interview indicates that Mr. Carlson decried and rejected replacement theory,” Murdoch said in his letter to ADL chief executive Jonathan Greenblatt. “As Mr. Carlson himself stated during the guest interview: ‘White replacement theory? No, no, this is a voting rights question.’”

This is how it works if you’re Tucker Carlson: You can express vile, unadorned racist views. And as long as you say the equivalent of “I’m not being racist,” you’re good to go. Or, rather, good to stay.

Continues…

26. NYT was heavily promoting this series

and went hogwild tweeting "highlights".




The New York Times
@nytimes
Tucker Carlson has constructed what is, by some measures, the most successful show in the history of cable news. It may also be the most racist.

The New York Times examined how he positioned himself to inherit the movement that grew around Donald Trump. https://nyti.ms/3vTtN2u
11:25 AM · Apr 30, 2022


I think many of us remember him years ago as a "young fogie" festooned with a bow tie and trying to be a pseudo-intellectual "young" version of an earlier "young fogie" - George Will - during his CNN days. As some of the older generation of RW gasbags began to disappear (like the Pat Buchannans and Charles Krauthammers and Bill O'Reillys) and finding himself competing with other up-and-comings like Hannity and Beck, he had to somehow distinguish himself and find a niche.

So he has managed to reinvent himself.

The best one who can take down anyone was Jon Stewart (sorely missed ).

32. Tucker Carlson Is the 'Most Racist Show in the History of Cable News,' NY Times Reports

Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program “may be the most racist show in the history of cable news — and also, by some measures, the most successful,” according to a New York Times series published Saturday.

Investigative reporter Nicholas Confessore’s three-part series “American Nationalist” investigates how the right-wing host seized upon the “white fear” and white nationalism stoked by the Trump administration to rack up ratings.

The series begins with selections from Carlson’s “encyclopedia of provocations,” citing his remarks about immigrants, Black Lives Matter protesters and refugees. It also dives into his ardent defense of the insurrectionists who attacked the U.S. Capitol, as well as Vladimir Putin throughout Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

An analysis of 1,150 episodes of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” revealed how Carlson has popularized “dog-whistle” terms like “legacy Americans” that had once been relegated to white nationalist publications.
