Recently at Reason.tv: Tucker Carlson on The Daily Caller, Jon Stewart, & Libertarianism

|

Tucker Carlson has sparred with Daily Show host Jon Stewart, been a contestant on Dancing With the Stars, a game show host, a Crossfire co-host, and a senior fellow at the Cato Institute

Now Carlson is getting into the new media game with launch of The Daily Caller, a site he describes as one part Huffington Post-like news aggregator and one part old school reporting. 

Carlson sat down with Reason.tv's Michael C. Moynihan in The Daily Caller's D.C. office to discuss his "libertarian instincts," drug legalization, why he ditched the Ron Paul "shadow convention," and why, after Jon Stewart accused him of "hurting America," The Daily Show's producer apologized to him. Filmed and edited by Dan Hayes.

  1. I watched the Crossfire video with Jon Stewart and Tucker Carlson. As much of a dirtbag dick that Jon Stewart is, Tucker just couldn’t fire back with enough venomous humor of his own.

    1. It was like watching a douchebag showdown.

  2. tuck definitely came out the worse on that one

  3. you had to lie and say that Jesse thinks jews did it huh? typical

  4. He admitted to not even hearing what Ventura said at the Ron Paul convention in 2008. I volunteered there, and Ventura said some provocative stuff – on and off the podium. Some of it I disagreed with, but, among other things, he simply brought up points about how Bin Laden’s Most Wanted listing doesn’t include 9/11: http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/topt…../laden.htm Pretty easily accessible info and not that outrageous. I witnessed Carlson have a disagreement with an attendee to the rally, in which the attendee was acting rude. Whether or not that had something to do with Carlson leaving, I’m not sure, but his exit was rather immature, in my opinion. I look forward to the Daily Caller, though I wish it wouldn’t be almost identical to the celeb-centric HuffPost.
