Carlson 'beats' on FOX
Tucker Carlson adds fuel to the fire between FOX and MSNBC. Carlson has moved to a new time slot--and has introduced a new segment-- 'beat the press' where he looks at 'how well and how not so well we in the media cover the news.'
Obviously, when you're talking about 'how not so well...the media cover the news' FOX is a sitting duck. To be fair, Carlson is an equal opportunity offender, but there's no irony lost in the fact that the frequent "FOX News Alerts!" is the subject of his first segment.
Carlson strings together eight alerts that all occurred within one hour following the collapse of a New York City building. While the alerts are frequent and outrageous, they never actually offer new information or insight.
As a footnote, It's worth watching this clip just to see how much fun Carlson has belting out the word 'alert!' repeatedly.
