The Fearful Verses of Tucker Carlson. (Hart Seely, NY Times Guest Essay)

Not so long ago, a lady demanded that I watch TUCKER CARLSON out of "fairness."  Deluded insurrectionists make me laugh.   Three (3) Republicans actually suggested that I become a Republican in order to be elected to local political office.  Real Americans with American values reject DONALD JOHN TRUMP and his casuistry, and his dead-from-the-neck-up fascist partisans. So glad that FOX lost its defamation lawsuit on summary judgment and settled for $778,500,000. So glad that TUCKER CARLSON was fired by FOX.  From The New York Times:

April 24, 2023: This article has been updated to reflect news developments.

Every weeknight for years, the Fox News host Tucker Carlson has unveiled a new outrage to the American public. Each screed is then posted on YouTube under a snappy title, quickly attracting millions of views. On Monday, Fox announced that the network and the host have “agreed to part ways.” It’s unclear what he will do next, but he leaves behind a rich legacy of doom mongering. Here are some of his scariest headlines, set in verse:

Hopefully now he will continue his lies and charades and be sued personally. Maybe him being off the leash so to speak will cause him to behave in a even more reckless fashion and be sued again.
