pandered to Trump's cultists. 

Unimaginable hypocrisy and backstabbing:

"As votes were being counted in the 2020 presidential election, Mr. Carlson texted with his producer, Alex Pfeiffer, fretting about viewers turning away from Fox News after the network called Arizona for President Biden. 

 Alex Pfeiffer: Trump has a pretty low rate at success in his business ventures. 

 Tucker Carlson: That’s for sure. All of them fail. What he’s good at is destroying things. He’s the undisputed world champion of that."

"A staff member texted Mr. Carlson to say they’d heard Mr. Trump was planning not to attend the inauguration, an important symbol of the peaceful transfer of power. 

Carlson: I’d heard that about the inauguration. Hard to believe. So destructive. 

 Carlson: It’s disgusting. I’m trying to look away."

"Mr. Carlson texts with the Fox News host Laura Ingraham about Sidney Powell, a lawyer for Mr. Trump and one of the biggest promoters of the unfounded election fraud claims. 

Carlson: I had to try to make the WH disavow her, which they obviously should have done long before. 

Laura Ingraham: No serious lawyer could believe what they were saying. 

Carlson: But they said nothing in public. Pretty disgusting. And now Trump, I learned this morning, is sitting back and letting them lose the senate. He doesn’t care. I care."


Carlson and his network have spent years pumping utter poison into our body politic. They have amplified the extremism and utter lies of Donald Trump and his acolytes and have done incalculable damage to our society, our public discourse, and our democracy. 

I hope the Dominion lawsuit ruins them all.

Ruining FOX, Carlson et all might make one feel good but it will not undo the damage already done. Revenge never does.

Perhaps when everybody involved with the big lie as well as the delusional ones who believed it are dead and gone society might stand a chance of repairing the body politic. Or, maybe not. Whatever happens its time to move on.
