Tucker Carlson Goes to Fox News: Still a "Dick"?

Self-proclaimed conservative libertarian Tucker Carlson finally landed at Fox News after drifting for years since Jon Stewart called him a "dick" on CNN's "Crossfire" just weeks before the long-running show was cancelled. Now he's on Fox News...

Tucker Carlson, 40, appeared on "Fox amp; Friends" Saturday, saying that he was glad to "finally" get there.

But in the world of television journalism or punditry (take your pick), Tucker Carlson is a minor leaguer who has constantly been brought up to the Majors, only to be sent back down again after a stint. Now he's being brought back by Fox News, which is where Tucker Carlson, whose overall political ideology is shared by most of those at Fox News, should have been long ago. He has been hired as a paid contributor. Not quite the Majors, but almost.

Carlson became a senior fellow at the non-partisan Cato Institute in February. The Cato Institute is a libertarian think tank organization in Washington that promotes the involvement of the common man in public policy and the proper role of government. He supported Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a noted libertarian, for president in 2020.

But Tucker Carlson isn't known for his progressive leanings. He's better know as coming "from the right." From defending the policies of president George W. Bush to condoning the bombing of the Greenpeace ship "Rainbow Warrior," his right-wing stances are what got him "finally" to Fox News.

Just last week, Carlson wrote in an online discussion at the Washington Post that President Barack Obama's proposed health system would be far inferior to the one currently extant in the United States. He maintained that the rich will still have the best treatment, though, because they will purchase private health care, while the average American waits months for an MRI.

One online reader was quick to point out that the rich already have the best private health care and that they are waiting two months and four months for a doctor's and a dental appointment, respectively. Media Matters further pointed out that in 2000, the United States ranked 37th in the world in overall health care (according to the World Health Organization). And all those "socialist" countries like Finland, Sweden, and Switzerland are ranked ahead of the United States.

It is easily refuted stuff like that that might just get Carlson his own show. It works daily for Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Facts and statistics do not matter if you misdirect and throw in a few buzzwords to obfuscate your message. And his getting rid of those silly bow ties in 2020 certainly has made him seem more credible the last few years.

Still, if one were to attempt to find the one reason why a guy that seemed to be a rising star on the right at the beginning of the decade has fallen into a minor league slump, one only has to look toward Washington mover-and-shaker Grover Norquist. In an article in Slate, Tucker Carlson called Norquist, a man commonly considered a chief architect of the modern conservative movement (read: neocon), a "mean-spirited, humorless, dishonest little creep...an embarrassing anomaly." He later called Norquist a "buffoon commissar" for lobbying for the Marxist government of Seychelles. When it was rumored that Grover Norquist went after Carlson by using then Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to put pressure on Carlson's employer, media mogul Rupert Murdoch, to censure the journalist (perhaps even going so far as to lobby for his termination), Carlson wrote another critical review of Norquist.

But you don't mess with a guy that has political connections with people like Newt Gingrich and Karl Rove and expect to walk away unscathed. Not unless one is delusional.

Of course, those were mere rumors. Nothing can actually be proven.

But Tucker Carlson seems to be on the rise again, thanks to the rise of Barack Obama and the Democratic Party's left-leaning politics. He will have a few moments to peddle his libertarian brand of conservative punditry on Fox News. Perhaps he'll get another chance at the Major Leagues.

With just a couple of controversies, he might be able to land his own show on Fox News. This writer suggests Jon Stewart. Then again, the last time he tangled with Jon Stewart, Tucker Carlson was soon looking for a job. And since he's still coming "from the right" with his alliance to Fox News, there's little doubt that Jon Stewart (and many others) still considers Tucker Carlson a "dick."

And it leaves no doubt at all that he's "finally" right at home at Fox News...
