Remember when Tucker Carlson said he felt the urge to cross his legs when he heard Hillary Clinton speak? It appears that Tucker has a problem with more than one woman.
Greta Van Susteren:
I really don’t understand my friend Tucker Carlson. He owns the website The Daily Caller and it currently has on its front page the most vile story — referring to a sex act with Governor Sarah Palin as a “womb shifter.” It is even the headline. Do you know what that means? Figure it out It is really vile. It is not just smut…this is violence against women.
Yes, I know the Daily Caller story is repeating what Mike Tyson says and Tyson has been a guest on ON THE RECORD at 10pm but to talk about boxing and his life – not to denigrate women. I won’t even begin to tell you my disappointment in Tyson. Many will say I should have expected that from Tyson – but Tucker? Tucker should have used judgment, a sence of decency and not promoted this denigration – a good journalist, a responsible journalist uses judgment. Tucker did not.
I keep asking myself, why would Tucker allow this to be posted on his website? I am suspicous his website is not doing well and this is one quick last breath to create buzz to keep it afloat. I wish Tucker had not allowed this to be posted on a site associated with his name because Tucker and I have been friends (and even colleagues) for years. I have always liked Tucker and I assume you can tell that when I introduce him and greet him on air.
I don’t like it when I see that my friends do disgraceful things – but we need to start calling out even our friends to stop this. Tucker has daughters and a wife and I would think he in particular would not want to be a purveyer of smut (and this is actually more, this is violence against women) and allow this to be posted on his website. There is nothing funny about violence against women and repeating what a thug (I thought – even hoped – Tyson had outgrown that) says on a radio show is also not news. I know he loves his wife and children and would never want this said or reported about them….so why is it ok to report about another? This is not news.
Mike Tyson (Rapist-NV) went on a radio show and made some really disgusting comments about Sarah Palin in reference to Joe McGinniss’ new tabloid trash book that alleges that Palin had a one-night stand with black basketball player Glen Rice over twenty years ago before she was married.
That’s bad enough, but then The Daily Caller reprinted Tyson’s remarks as though it were a news story. After the shit hit the fan they edited the story to make it appear that they were criticizing Tyson.
But since it was Sarah Palin, don’t expect any outcry about any of this from feminists. The Other McCain:
Does FCC know about this? How about AttackWatch? Now that I think of it, have we heard from Jill Filipovic, Jessica Valenti, Melissa McEwan or any of the other feminists? Because if Sarah Palin weren’t a Republican, I think they’d probably be outraged by this.
