Answer: Thomas Jefferson - one of the founding fathers of this
great Nation and a creator of the U.S. Constitution and the First Amendment
to that same Constitution. Thomas Jefferson, in 1802, wrote a Letter
to the Danbury Baptist Association, referring to the First Amendment to the
US Constitution. In it he said:
The Two Faces of Tucker Carlson
EXTREMIST (TEA PARTY)
REPUBLICANS THE ENEMY AND TRAITORS TO AMERICA by R. Blackbird
Extremist (Tea Party) Republicans are selfish, power hungry, hateful of the poor, disloyal to the nation and its people, dishonest, avaricious, scornful of the nation's history, the dignity of its institutio
Those Extremist Republicans hate the rest of us, which they must, in order to pass away from themselves and onto us, the financial burdens and losses their crimes, schemes and thefts cause. They are prolific, incessant, and destructive liars. They are blasphemers for they insist that their hateful and destructive deeds are the work of God. They are apostates for they gleefully attack the poor, the immigrants, the old and the sick, of whom God has commanded all of us to be mindful.
There is no reasoning with them, for all their logic is built on false premises. There is no appealing to them for honor's sake for they have lost all sense of shame and have no honor, there is no appealing to them for the nation's sake for that it what they hate the most.
Extremist (Tea Party) Republicans are the enemy.
We will leave it up to the reader to determine whether Tucker Carlson has made serious errors in in judgment. Tucker has seemed to support a Conservative Christian position especially when it comes to Church and State issues. It is apparent from the data collected, that Ethical Values and the first amendment may be in danger from his past and future actions.
Tucker Carlson's office like others we called, stated that his position is that no religion but Christianity is a "Real" religion." What is a real religion, Mr. Carlson? What you have been practicing? Read the following and remember: "By their Works may they be known." This is a summary of information collected from several sources about Tucker Carlson.

Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson (born May 16, 1969) is a multi-named television pundit, a former bow-tie wearer, and a dick. His insufferability was inflicted on America – or at least that tiny fraction of America that watches MSNBC – for three hours every weekday on the eponymous show Tucker, which aired at 4pm, 6pm and 2am ET, until it was canceled on March 10, 2008.
Carlson’s career as a journalist reached its brief peak in 1999 with his profile of Number One traitor George W. Bush in the debut issue of Tina Brown’s Talk magazine. When Bush mentioned that he’d seen an interview in which Larry King asked the soon-to-be-executed Texas murderer Karla Faye Tucker what she would say to then-Governor Bush if she had the chance to meet with him, Carlson asked Bush what she answered. This provided a set-up for one of the greatest moments of nastiness in the history of mankind, duly reported by Carlson: “‘Please,’ Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, ‘don’t kill me.’” This is the only sentence ever written by Carlson that is worth reading.
Carlson’s career as a “journalist” began in 2000 with his co-hosting of CNN’s The Spin Room, on which he represented the right against liberal Bill Press. The show was quickly cancelled, and Carlson began alternating with Robert Novak as the conservative co-host of Crossfire, one of the major conservative partisan horrors in the annals of broadcasting.
Despite his having appeared on hundreds of Crossfire programs, the only episode anyone remembers is the one from October 15, 2004, when Daily Show host Jon Stewart berated Carlson and his liberal co-host Paul Begala for their “partisan hackery” and begged them to “stop hurting America.” Carlson told Stewart, “I do think you’re more fun on your show,” and Stewart told Carlson, “You’re as big a ass h__le on your show as you are on any show.” Less than three months later, Carlson learned that CNN would not be renewing his contract and he signed with MSNBC.
Carlson wrote his autobiography, Politicians, Partisans and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News, in 2003, at the ripe old age of 34. The book, which no one has ever seen a copy of, reportedly contains the revelation that Carlson was once accused of rape by a mentally disturbed woman he’d never met in Louisville, Kentucky, a city he’d never set foot in.
On April 11, 2006, Carlson announced his decision to cease wearing bow ties, a dweeby affectation (shared by fellow pundit George Will) for which he was appropriately ridiculed over the years. “I just decided I wanted to give my neck a break,” he explained, oblivious to how many viewers also wanted to give his neck a break.
In 2006, apparently believing that he wasn’t on TV enough, Carlson competed on the ABC reality series Dancing With the Stars. On September 13, 2006, his boldly exhibited preternatural inability to dance resulted in his being the first contestant to be voted off the show. Nonetheless, Carlson appears to take some perverse pride in the whole thing, as he continues to include this humiliating performance in his official MSNBC bio, where he remains a contributor/wiener.
AS RECENTLY REPORTED BY MEDIA MATTERS:
How Conservative Pundits use each others Lies and False Statements to Smear anyone they don't agree with.
In the weeks since former Vice President Al Gore became Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, The Daily Howler's Bob Somerby wrote extensively about news reports and commentary about Gore's win that have failed to note the brutal and often false savaging Gore experienced at the hands of the media during his presidential campaign. Looking at the first news reports about Gore's award, a similar thought occurred to me: so many of those reports focused on whether Gore would again run for president, yet they made no mention of the primary reason he is not president today -- years of news reports (led by The New York Times and The Washington Post, not Fox News) that falsely portrayed Gore as a liar and childishly mocked him for his clothes.
It's a story that has been told many times, by countless people. And yet we keep telling it, and we sometimes criticize others for not telling it. Why? Simple: because it is important, because horrible media coverage of progressives didn't stop with Al Gore, and because not enough people are aware of it.
Editor & Publisher recently reported on a new poll of Americans' attitudes toward the news media:
Between the media's treatment of Gore and their handling of the run-up to the Iraq war, how can Democrats have so much faith in the media and Republicans so little? There are probably a large number of factors that play a role, but two seem obvious: The American people are rarely told about the media's peddling of conservative misinformation, and they are frequently told that the media are "liberal."
The October 16 edition of MSNBC's Tucker provides an excellent, if infuriating, case study. Host Tucker Carlson and his two journalist guests peddled a steady stream of conservative misinformation -- and at the same time suggested that the very cable channel on which they were doing so is biased against conservatives.
Carlson led A.B. Stoddard of The Hill and Josephine Hearn of the Politico in a discussion of an allegation that, in 1992, Hillary Clinton listened to a recording of a telephone call held by political adversaries of her husband. The allegation first appeared in Her Story, the Clinton biography released earlier this year and written by New York Times reporter Don Van Natta Jr. and Jeff Gerth, formerly of the Times. The sole citation Gerth and Van Natta provided for the allegation read, in full, "Author interview with former campaign aide present at the tape playing in 2006."
Her Story was poorly received when it was released months ago, perhaps because it was heavily reliant on anonymous sources like the "former campaign aide" who made the telephone-recording allegation, and perhaps because of the authors' history of dubious reporting. In any case, the phone allegation was almost universally ignored.
Nevertheless, Carlson declared Tuesday evening that "rumors of scandal" might disrupt Clinton's presidential campaign:
In fact, Her Story isn't new, and it wasn't the reason Carlson devoted a segment to the allegation -- Carlson later admitted he hasn't even read the book. So why did Carlson, Stoddard, and Hearn -- along with other media figures -- devote so much time to such a vague and thinly sourced allegation in a months-old book that nobody much cared about at the time?
Perhaps because the GOP told them to. This flurry of media attention began with an article in The Hill laying out the Republicans' plan to attack Clinton over the allegation.
By attributing the segment to revelations in a "new book" (that isn't new and that he hadn't read) rather than to the fact that Republican political operatives were criticizing Clinton, Carlson managed to give an air of credibility to what was a thinly sourced partisan attack.
The Politico's Ben Smith explained how the Republican National Committee successfully (and dishonestly) used The Hill to launder the eavesdropping allegation and make it appear more solid than it actually is:
But the RNC couldn't have done it on its own: It needed the help (intentional or not) of journalists who 1) reported the allegation and 2) did so without noting the dubious sourcing -- sourcing that, according to Ben Smith, "could not stand on its own." And, indeed, the Republicans' "plan to seize" on the allegation was enough to spur several news reports. As Media Matters noted yesterday, Slate.com, National Review, CNN's Paula Zahn Now, ABC News' The Note, Fox News' Fox & Friends, MSNBC's Tucker, The Washington Times, and The American Spectator all reported the allegation without noting that it was based on a single anonymous source.
Worse, the purported recollections by an anonymous source of an event that supposedly happened 14 years prior was enough for some reporters to flatly declare the event to have been illegal.
On Tucker, the first thing the Politico's Hearn said was: "And it looks like it is illegal and was illegal then, in '92." Later, Hearn all but invited an official investigation: "[Y]eah, I think it's a big deal if somebody decides to investigate it." She then seemed to reverse herself, noting, "I mean, it's 15 years old. I think, lacking an investigation, I don't know, it seems pretty tenuous right now." But not too tenuous for her to declare it to have been "illegal."
Nor did Hearn hesitate to defend the authors who brought us this "tenuous" allegation; she falsely stated that Clinton's staff "apparently ... never challenged anything in the book at all." Hearn was presumably basing that statement on an identical claim by Gerth that was included in the article in The Hill. But Gerth is hardly a disinterested observer whose statements on the matter can be taken as fact; he is one of the book's authors and has an obvious interest in portraying it as beyond factual reproach. Had Hearn spent a moment looking into the matter before simply repeating the author's defense of his book as fact, she would have known that Gerth was not telling the truth. (Not only was Gerth's claim -- repeated by Hearn as independent fact -- that the Clinton camp hasn't challenged anything in the book false, it is largely irrelevant. In assessing the book's credibility, it matters far less whether the Clinton camp has pointed out flaws than whether anyone has pointed out flaws. And Media Matters, among others, has done so, repeatedly.)
But what makes the Tucker segment noteworthy is not that it featured false, misleading, and oversimplified claims about a prominent progressive -- that happens all the time on cable news. What really makes it noteworthy is that at the end of the segment -- a segment in which three journalists had discussed at length an allegation against Hillary Clinton that appeared, based on a single anonymous source describing a 14-year-old event, in a factually flawed book that at least two of the three had not read -- Carlson and his guests agreed that the media is giving Clinton a pass on the allegation.
None of the journalists had noted the allegation's dubious provenance. None noted that Gerth, at least, has a long history of deeply flawed reporting about the Clintons. Instead, they made false claims (as in Hearn's assertion that nothing in the book had been contested) and misleading statements (as in Carlson's description of the authors as "not two guys from The American Spectator. These are two -- in at least one case, I think, a pretty well-established, at least, former liberal. I mean, they're not screaming right-wingers") bolstering the credibility of a book that at least two of them had not read. After this laughable display, in which they had been manifestly unfair to Hillary Clinton, these three journalists decided that she was getting off easier than Rudy Giuliani would in a similar situation:
Bernie Kerik has been Rudy Giuliani's business partner, police commissioner, and recommendation to be secretary of homeland security. And Bernie Kerik is currently facing indictment for assorted crookedness. Of course Bernie Kerik is a story -- he and his ties to Giuliani should probably be more of a story. There is no way in which Giuliani's relationship with Kerik is analogous to a single anonymous source claiming that Hillary Clinton listened to a recording in 1992.
Later in the same show, Carlson made another comment that, while not directly accusing the media of bias, likely led some viewers to conclude that the media inaccurately portray Republicans as the party of the wealthy. Carlson claimed to speak a simple truth that "nobody ever, ever mentions":
The reason that "people never point that out" probably has something to do with not wanting to be thought of as a fool or a liar. Carlson's claim that people making more than $100,000 a year tend to vote for Democrats is simply false.
In the 2006 congressional elections, Republican candidates won among those making at least $100,000; they won by an even larger margin among those making more than $200,000. The same was true in the 2004 presidential election, the 2004 congressional elections, and the 2000 presidential elections (exit poll data are not available for the 2002 elections, but it's a safe bet that the pattern held, particularly given that Republicans did better overall in the 2002 elections than in any of the others).
Tucker Carlson's entire job is covering politics and has been for years. It would be bad enough if Carlson simply didn't know something so basic about contemporary American politics as the fact that people who make at least $100,000 tend to vote for Republicans. But it's worse than that: He actively believes (unless he is simply being dishonest) the opposite; so much so, that he takes others to task for not joining him in spreading his false claims. And not just once -- he made the same claim in July:
In fact, 2000 exit polls show that only 43 percent of "the over-$100,000 income bracket" voted for Al Gore; 54 percent voted for George W. Bush. That was the income range Gore lost by the largest margin -- but Carlson will "never forget" that Gore won it!
why he should listen to Media Matters. The answer is simple: because
he doesn't have any idea what he is talking about and would be well-advised
to listen to people who do, even if he doesn't share their ideology.
