Tucker Carlson Vows to Start Right-Wing Web Site that Rivals HuffPo, AlterNet

Poor Tucker Carlson, still chasing away memories of Jon Stewart (WSJ, emphasis added):


Tucker Carlson announced plans to launch DailyCaller.com, a conservative-leaning news site that will aim to be an answer to the Huffington Post.

“We’re sincerely trying to think through what comes next in journalism,” said Mr. Carlson, a Fox News contributor and former host of CNN’s “Crossfire.” “I think we can answer the basic question, which is: How do you keep reporting? How do you make reporting a viable business?”

He said that he wants to emphasize original reporting. “We don’t simply want to be parasites of other news sites,” he said. “We want to be creators of news,” though he added, “We’re not in it to beat anybody.”

Mr. Carlson told reporters and bloggers at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., that the site would focus on coverage of President Barack Obama’s administration. “There just aren’t enough people covering this administration and telling the people what’s going on,” he said.
