More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 379

“What's The Frequency, Tucker?” Edition

Mark America:
“Is it just me, or has Tucker Carlson finally blown the last remnants of his cover? ... His Tweets and columns have occasionally caused some to wonder if there isn’t some underlying misogyny, but neither knowing Carlson nor his staff, I can only guess that it’s mere opportunism now permitting the excuse of becoming purveyors of filth with their ‘reporting’ on Mike Tyson’s disgusting remarks about Sarah Palin... This seems to be a fair example of those Republican men to whom Breitbart referred in The Undefeated as ‘eunuchs.’ Attack the girl with sexist terminology and gutter stories, either directly or indirectly through a surrogate ‘report,’ and then make lame attempts at self-
extrication from the inevitable blow-back. In this latest episode, it was one of Carlson’s staff at his on-line publication who delivered the coverage of the original story, and it was clearly demeaning coverage of remarks made by the washed-up, ear-chomping boxer about Governor Palin in the crudest possible terms.”
Dan Riehl, at Riehl World View:
“Could be wrong, but I believe there was a lot of Evangelical Christian money behind the Caller. I doubt they thought they were investing in a tabloid.”
Marooned in Marin:
“Tucker and The DC appear to be going more the way of RedState in being the establishment GOP's attack dog against grassroots conservative candidates and bloggers. What started it was the DC published the vile words of Mike Tyson about Sarah Palin. Why the DC thought repeating the words of an alleged spousal abuser, convicted rapist (who later attacked his victim in print) and ear muncher is beyond anyone's guess. But they did... If The Daily Caller is going to print hateful garbage that they double down on when called on it (instead of issuing a retraction), then they need to dissolve. The last thing we need in the coming months of an important election year is the mud-slinging from establishment voices like the DC and RedState.”
Stacy McCain, at The Other McCain:
“You could report that Mike Tyson said vile things about Sarah Palin without repeating those vile things, especially in the headline.”
Left Coast Rebel:
“Well, the Daily Caller carried the story but did so in a fashion that truly tarnished their image and conservative journalism in general. When I read the DC piece I thought I was reading Perez Hilton or some crap... I'm not the biggest Palin fan in the world, but for the Daily Caller to go there is beyond repore [sic]. It's one thing to report salacious news said about a republican by a celebrity -- especially Sarah Palin, a woman who has been dragged over the salacious coals more times than I can even recall. But, it's another story in the way Daily Caller's Jeff Poor carries the piece, excerpting Tyson's vile verbiage... right down to... well, it's just not right. I sure as hell wouldn't have posted it here.”
Mark R. Levin, via Twitter:
“Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist. Why were his vicious words about Sarah Palin considered newsworthy?”
Peter Ingemi, at DaTechGuy's Blog:
“For such a site like Tucker Carlson’s, it is vital to stay relevant to the MSM so if things were rough and I needed a kick-start I would know that the easiest way to get MSM attention is to hit a conservative, and there is no conservative the MSM lives to hit more than Sarah Palin. Thus The Daily Caller decided to go quote Mike Tyson’s vile sexually charged attack on Palin inspired by Joe McGinnis’ book. Alas poor Tucker, he hasn’t apparently been paying attention. McGinnis’ book has so little credibility and is so discredited even Keith Olbermann and the NYT are dissing it.”
Donald Douglas, at American Power:
“I'd rather not link, only because I agree with Greta that Daily Caller's probably circling the drain, and no need to prolong the agony at this point.”
LibertyBelle, at Revolutionary Media:
“You don’t like her policies? Her record? The idea of her running for president? Then stick to the issues. Debate on substance. Don’t sink to this kind of degeneracy. I can’t speak to exactly what’s going on here on the right, but there’s been an emerging pattern of certain famous conservative personalities taking every opportunity to not only marginalize Palin but demoralize her supporters... Others on the right have rushed to Carlson’s defense, admonishing Greta that Tyson is the pig, not Carlson. I agree that Tyson is a pig, but that doesn’t absolve Carlson from giving him prominence on The Daily Caller website. That makes him just as bad in my eyes. And when you consider this isn’t the first time Tucker has denigrated Palin personally, it’s indicative of a disturbing pattern. With ‘friends’ like these, who needs the left?”
myiq2xu, at The Crawdad Hole:
“The Daily Caller reprinted Tyson’s remarks as though it were a news story. After the [euphemism for ‘manure’] hit the fan, they edited the story to make it appear that they were criticizing Tyson.”
Rex Murphy, at the National Post:
“The media trashed Hillary. They burned Republicans. They ransacked Sarah Palin and her family. But Obama, the cool, the detached, the oracular Obama — he strolled to the presidency. Palin, in particular, stands out as Obama’s opposite in the media’s eyes. As much as they genuflected to the one, they felt the need to turn rottweiler toward the other. If Obama was sacred, classy, intellectual and cosmopolitan, why then Palin must be malevolent, trashy, dumb and pure backwoods-ignorant. Every doubt they hid from themselves about Obama, every potential embarrassment they tucked under the blanket of their superior sensibilities, they furiously over-compensated for by their remorseless hounding of Palin — from utterly trivial e-mails, to blogger Andrew Sullivan’s weird speculations about Palin’s womb, musings that put the Obama ‘Birther’ fantasies into a realm near sanity. (We are now seeing an echo of that — with a new book promoting all sorts of unconfirmed gossip about Palin...) As a result, the press gave the great American republic an untried, unknown and, it is becoming more and more frighteningly clear, incompetent figure as President.”
Scared Monkeys:
“What else can one expect from a convicted rapist but misogyny... I wonder how the left would feel if the same such comments were made of female Democrats?”
Days of Change:
“The book is filled with half-truths and innuendos. Sources are anonymized [sic] in nearly every story. There is no political criticism, but tales of Palin as a horrible boss, a crappy mom and a druggy slut. The worst part for the people who hate Palin is what it has done to make their jobs difficult. There are jeers aplenty for the filthy muckraking, but it all comes back to how it will make Sarah Palin more sympathetic as a victim and provide ammunition for her examples of media bias. In other words, it makes their Palin-bashing more difficult... The people going after McGuinniss could not care less about his character assassination of Sarah Palin. They care that he is ruining their attempts at character assassination.”
Roxanne Roberts & Amy Argetsinger, at the Washington Post:
“Oh, and that Glen Rice story? Not a lot of evidence.”
Gregory Kane, at the Washington Examiner:
“Desperate. That's what critics and detractors of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are getting, and she hasn't even announced she's running for president yet. Can you believe these people are playing, of all things, the Glen Rice card? ... As I said, it's an act of desperation. But Palin-bashers are lapping it up.... It occurs to me that it wasn't too long ago when one of their guys -- that would be former President Clinton -- was found to have committed certain sexual acts with a certain intern in the White House. Nobody on the left ever called him ‘trash.’ If anything, he became more popular with those on the left. Liberals and lefties tend to ratchet up their standards when it comes to conservatives and Republicans.”
Exit Quote - Dolly Parton:
“Oh they talk about the lovers
That I keep undercover
And I wish that I was as much fun
As they have you believe
Just like Alec Baldwin
I’d love to whack ’em all one
But instead I’ll wait and see
Who I am sleepin’ with next week”
