The bow-tied clown is angry the press didn't immediately take seriously a non-news story the right-wing media manufactured.

Just another narcissistic low life with nothing of any value to offer.

Who could take a young person that wares a bow tie this day an age seriously anyway. Give him a red noise and big feet and send him on his way.

"These latest media attacks from Barnes and Carlson represent an odd chorus to the old liberal bias chant we've heard for decades. And the chorus sounds like this: If reporters don't embrace and report on the utter nonsense that unmoored sites within conservative media create, especially during the campaign season, then journalists are declaring their bias.

"It's a legitimate form of media criticism to point out when the press ignores worthy and independent news events. (Media Matters does that regularly.) What's not legitimate about the Carlson and Barnes attacks are they demand journalists pay attention to the "news events" the right-wing media concoct on their own.

"Sorry Tucker, but ignoring Daily Caller's failed offerings isn't a form of bias. It's just common sense."

I guess this is what gives 'journalism' a bad name? Sure wish such manufactured stories didn't get posted on C2 so often...seems that anything from Tucker's source is a candidate for an unworthy report.

Carlson is such a stooge. I still smile at the ease at which Jon Stewart took him apart in an "interview".

Of course the media would not want to cover Carlson's story, as it exposes their failure to impartially report on the candidacy of Barack Obama in 2008.

Carlson needs to stick to facts and be believable if he wants to be taken seriously. FOX is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Isnt he from Crossfire? Loved watching Jon Stewart rip him apart!

Would you believe that at one time Carlson was on MSNBC? That is until they discovered his unethical and dishonest reporting, Disagreeing is one thing, but out right dishonesty is quite another!

Tucker what you're missing is the red nose and the floppy shoes then you'll get the attention you deserve
