Tucker Carlson on Fox:
"Filling in as the host of Fox News' "Hannity" Tuesday night, conservative commentator Tucker Carlson said that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick should have received the death penalty for killing dogs.
The comment came during a panel discussion on President Obama's recent phone call to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, in which he praised Lurie for giving Vick a second chance after his federal dogfighting conviction.
"I'm a Christian. I've made mistakes myself. I believe fervently in second chances," Carlson said. "But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should've been executed for that. He wasn't, but the idea that the president of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs? Kind of beyond the pale." "
Another example of a sensational comment, completely unbelievable as to his real thoughts, simply made to keep the story in the headlines with some hope of hurting the president. I know I'm "on the other side" so to speak, but these antics on Fox are so transparent to me that they border on comical.
Would Tucker Carlson feel the same way if it was his brother, or his news editor for that matter, convicted of the same crimes? I would guess not.
These guys have zero credibility. They are simply an act with the only intention of spewing anger and hatred toward an elected administration.
