    Why would he need to read it when he can just flip Fox on the television?
    There's a flaw with that theory- white supremacists need to be able to read before they can write.

      It's still easy to spot and read around. Besides, we ourselves can't resist repeating it to each other, if only to say how dumb it is.

          "It was all bull****."

          That's what Bill Barr told me he thought of Trump's claims of election in an astonishingly candid interview for my upcoming book on the final days of the Trump Presidency - one of many on-the-record interviews for my book.

          Read the follow up tweet it's interesting and shows how spineless the GQP is.

            I've just got a bad feeling about this.
            He's not losing his mind. He's coldly calculating.

            • Tucker, Candace, Ben, etc.

              I say this as a behavior therapist.

              Four functions of behavior are to escape a task, gain attention, gain access to a tangible item, and self-stimulate (think pen-clicking and playing with one's own hair, not whatever your dirty mind was thinking of). Tucker says outrageous **** to gain attention, media reports on his outrageous message and message is distributed through society, and Tucker's need for attention is satisfied. Tucker will keep doing this as long as his need for attention is satisfied.

              In behavior therapy, what clinics I worked in use extinction plans. To get Tucker to stop saying outrageous ****, in an extinction plan, everyone in the office basically stops paying attention to him when he seeks it inappropriately. There would be a burst of inappropriate attention seeking for a little while, but the idea is once everyone stops reinforcing him, he gets the hint and stops. However, and we've seen this with Dump and more, extinction plans do not work if everyone isn't in on it. If one person keeps giving him what he wants, he'll keep doing it.

                        I don’t think Tucker had lost his mind; I think he’s just morally corrupt and willing to say whatever he knows his audience will eat up and make him more loved by them.

                        A number of print journalists have started outting him as their source for the messed up back room shenanigans and directions the on-air hosts are receiving from their bosses. Assuming these reports are right, he’s been calling I everything happening at Fox News absolutely absurd. But there he is on the TV parroting the absurd, showing his complete abdication of a moral ethos.

                        • Television is all about ratings. And it's self-stimulating (however you choose to envision it).

                          It goes something like this:

                          Did you see what TalkingHead on ThatNetwork said? Roll tape.

                          and the next night

                          Did you see what OtherTalkingHead on ThatOtherNetwork said I said? Roll tape.

                          and the next night

                          Did you see what TalkingHead on ThatNetwork said I said I said? Roll tape.

                          Lather. Rinse. Repeat.


                          I swear I see as much Fox banner crawl watching CNN as I do CNN crawl watching Fox (because all they do is < bleep > about the other).

                            You figure that out all by yourself?

                              Yeah Tucker is just an opportunistic nazi weasel. As you said he has been outted as a source on some of the very stories he *****es about on his show.

                              • He's also hiding behind the "these aren't facts, don't believe me!" nonsense:
                                https://www.npr.org/2020/09/29/91774...ay-fox-s-lawye

                                Now comes the claim that you can't expect to literally believe the words that come out of Carlson's mouth. And that assertion is not coming from Carlson's critics. It's being made by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York and by Fox News's own lawyers in defending Carlson against accusations of slander. It worked, by the way.

                                Just read U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil's opinion, leaning heavily on the arguments of Fox's lawyers: The "'general tenor' of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.' "

                                She wrote: "Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer 'arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statement he makes."

                                Vyskocil, an appointee of President Trump's, added, "Whether the Court frames Mr. Carlson's statements as 'exaggeration,' 'non-literal commentary,' or simply bloviating for his audience, the conclusion remains the same — the statements are not actionable."

                                This was his defense in a slander lawsuit that they won, but at the cost of "you can't actually believe the nonsense I spew".
