Reporter Spars With Carlson

Recently, former Fox New host Tucker Carlson has gone on a speaking tour.

Matter of fact, Oliver Darcy of CNN, wrote a couple hit pieces on Ticketmaster for selling the tickets to his speech.

Carlson’s tour currently has him in Australia and he got into an intense back and forth with a reporter.

It was quiet a spectacle.

While taking questions Carlson went on a 10 minute rampage giving a masterclass on how to deal with the media.

One reporter asked if the former Fox News host felt any “level of shame or regret” interviewing Putin.

“I thought you were describing Putin as a psychopathic liar and yet now you’re taking his word for things?” Carlson hit back. “I mean, let me just quickly unpack your absurd soliloquy if I can … Ukraine has been completely destroyed, and now Zelensky has passed a law allowing foreign corporations to own land there. So you tell me what Ukraine is gonna look like in 30 years when all of it is owned by BlackRock and multinational corporations and its population is not Ukrainian. So the tragedy of what’s happened in Ukraine is orchestrated by the western powers, including by your government and driven by my government — I feel shame about it and I hope you do too — is one of the greatest crimes of my lifetime.”

“So the idea that somehow if you’re against that you’re for Putin, well of course, that’s absurd,” he continued.

In another intense exchange a reporter from ABC confronted Carlson about his supposive claims that white Americans were being replaced.

Tucker shot back stating he has “never said that whites are being replaced, not one time’ and that his comments on the issue applied to all native-born regardless of race.”

Below is a partial transcript:

REPORTER: So you talked a little bit about immigration, and in the past, you’ve talked about how white Australians, Americans, and Europeans, are being replaced by non-white immigrants in what is often referred to as the great replacement theory.

CARLSON: Have I said whites have been replaced?


CARLSON: I don’t think I’ve said that.

REPORTER: Well, it’s been mentioned on your show 4,000 times, and…

CARLSON: Really, when did I say that? I’ve said whites are being replaced?

REPORTER: You have said that before. Yeah.

CARLSON: Really? I would challenge you to cite that because I’m pretty sure I haven’t said that. I said native-born Americans are being replaced, including blacks.

REPORTER: Native-born Americans?

CARLSON: Native-born Americans, Americans like black Americans, African Americans have been in the United States, in many cases, their families for over 400 years, and their concerns are every bit as real and valid and alive to me as the concerns of white people whose families have been there 400 years. I’ve never said whites are being replaced, not one time, and you can’t cite it so..

REPORTER: I believe that’s untrue…

CARLSON: We’ve just met, but when our relationship starts with a lie, it makes it tough to be friends.

REPORTER: Well, you’ve been lying about (inaudible)…

CARLSON: You actually can’t cite it because I didn’t say it.

CARLSON: How about no more lying in your questions and then I’ll answer it.

REPORTER: Okay, well, umm, this is the same theory, or as you say idea, that has inspired the New York Buffalo shooting where eleven black Americans were killed, two white Americans were killed…

CARLSON: Oh, God, come on…You know what I mean…

REPORTER: It’s also inspired the worst, it’s inspired the worst, one of the worst Australian gunman of all time

CARLSON: How do they get people this stupid in the media? I guess it doesn’t pay well. Look, I’m sorry, I’ve lived among people like you for too long, and I don’t mean to call you stupid, maybe you’re just pretending to be, but I’ve never, I’m totally against violence. I’m totally against the war in Ukraine, for example, which doubtless you support, and like all dutiful liberals support more carnage. I don’t. I hate mass shootings, actually.

Nothing I’ve said, what does it mean to inspire something? My views are not bigoted against any group, they’re honest, they’re factual. That’s not hate. That’s reality, and my views derive from my deep concerns for Americans, actually.
