Mickey Kaus Quits Daily Caller After Tucker Carlson Pulls Critical Fox News Column
The fascinating thing about this report that Mickey Kaus has quit working for The Daily Caller is Tucker Carlson’s flat out admission that he has a policy of not criticizing Fox News — and will pull any column that does: Mickey Kaus Quits Daily Caller After Tucker Carlson Pulls Critical Fox News Column.
Kaus says when he told Carlson he needed to be able to write about Fox, Carlson told him it was a hard-and-fast rule, and non-negotiable.
“He said it was a rule, and he wouldn’t be able to change that rule. So I told him I quit,” Kaus explained. “I just don’t see how you can put out a publication with that kind of giant no-go area. It’s not like we’re owned by Joe’s Muffler Shop, so we just can’t write about Joe’s Muffler shop.”
Reached via email, Carlson told On Media: “Mickey is a great guy, and one of the few truly independent thinkers anywhere. I’m sorry to see him go.”
Does anyone still have any doubt that right wing “journalism” is thoroughly and utterly corrupt?
