What you see if you watch Tucker Carlson!

TUESDAY, AUGUST 18, 2020

For one thing, you see these two clips:
What do you see, and what do you hear, if you watch Tucker Carlson Tonight?

You'll hear a lot of crazy, over-the-top, majorly pseudo analysis by the program's host. That said, not everything you hear will be crazy--and you''re likjely to see video clips you won't encounter amid all the happy talk on the other two corporate cables.

Last night, Carlson opened with a ten-minute segment featuring lots of ugly street violence from several major cities. He followed with a short interview with a Seattle talk show host who always strikes us as basically sensible. This doesn't necessarily mean that his analyses are right.

As we've mentioned in the past month, we get the impression that mainstream anti-Trump news orgs are heavily censoring what you're shown and told about the ongoing demonstrations in cities like Portland and Seattle. Last night, Carlson's guest said this about the Seattle scene:
RANTZ (8/17/10): We're pretending still that these are protests. I'm sorry, but these are no longer protests. They've not been protests for several weeks. They go out there with the intent of causing harm to these police officers. They show up with bats. They show up with [commercial grade] fireworks, with the intent of causing damage. They're not showing up to protest for some social justice cause. That's not what they're doing.
Presumably, Rantz was talking about some members of the Seattle protest scene, not all. Meanwhile, we aren't there to form our own assessment of these matters. But Carlson seems to have an endless supply of remarkable and ugly footage which aligns with that analysis, with no arrests reported.

It's our impression that other news orgs have decided not to bother our pretty little heads with the footage and the complexities in question. Our advice to you would be this:

Go ahead—give those tapes a look! The happy talk and the tribal dissembling will still be waiting for you when you return to the cable channels in the control of our tribe.

Remember—you'll have to sit through absurd ascriptions of motive from Carlson. You're there to watch the videotapes, not for (the bulk of) his remarks.

    Meh. They have never been 'protests", dear Bob.

    Protests are organized around political demands, and those riots -- oh okay, let's call them 'public disturbances' when they are relatively peaceful -- had none, unless you count "defund the police" for a political demand. But then would'd be an idiot, dear Bob.

  2. Why does Somerby not understand that rioting and looting are also forms of protest, inchoate protests brought by people with too little money, no job prospects, etc. Riots are not normal, these times and not normal, and Trump is not addressing people's problems. So they are out in the streets making noise and destroying property. It is what desperate people do.

    Instead, he is trying to figure out which protests are legitimate and which are not -- by watching footage on Fox, as if that were not as biased as the so-called mainstream media.

    There was a protest in my hometown. There were 80 BLM protesters and 200 counter-protesters who drove vehicles into the crowd of protesters, one even having to be hit by a police car to avoid hurting people. That didn't make Fox News.

  3. If you want to see some of the ugliness without listening to Carlson, go to the link below. In the link, rioters stand over the unconscious man’s body after they beat him. They pour water on him and shout in support of Black Lives Matter. Antifa street medics are examining him. He’s not responsive. (BTW I understand that this victim is not in a hospital.)

    1. The problem is that guy was trying to hit protestors with his truck (I was there), from which he had removed his license plate. This is an ongoing occurrence with these pro-Trump groups like Proud Boys and Patriot Prayers. These groups, along with the police, have beaten and put in the hospital many protestors, they have even murdered some.

  4. Fox has a history of doctoring footage, showing video from other times and places and representing it as current, etc. You cannot trust what you see there. Somerby has seemingly suspended disbelief with regard to Fox.

  5. Here’s Carlson talking about the mailbox conspiracy theory as dramatized in the video by Al Gore.

    Suddenly it’s The Time Of The Season for Conspiracies (and gaslighting).

    2. I recently heard a conspiracy theorist say the Republican Party isn't a criminal enterprise. I was amazed. It truly takes all types to make this world.

  6. Steve M. at No More Mister Nice blog says:

    "They [right-wingers] don't have thoughts about Trump's corruption because it's never mentioned in the right-wing media bubble."

    Maybe Somerby can tell us if that's true or not.

  7. Correction: the victim is NOW in a hospital.

  8. “Look what I saw on Fox News!” isn’t media criticism.

  11. LOVE SPELL TESTIMONY

    Thank you so much DOCTOR ODUNGA for making my ex boyfriend come back to me. I am writing this wonderful testimony in respect of this man. He made all my wishes come true. My boyfriend and I dated for more than 3 years and although we had had so many quarrels we never thought of a break up. One day, he called me over the phone telling me how he is tired of the relationship and cannot see anywhere that we are heading to. Months passed and my boyfriend did not contact me anymore and I did not hear from him anymore and his cell phone was disconnected. I knew I needed to seek help because of the love I have for him. I contacted this great spell caster because i have never contacted anyone before and i tell you that after a week of contact, my ex boyfriend called me and asked to see me and the next morning, he wore a ring on my finger. I am very happy because I am soon going to be a married girl with the help of this great spell caster. I promised to manifest your works to everyone and please contact this man to help you at

  13. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Onokun helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com

  15. What a wonderful spell caster you are.. Life would have been useless without you. I heard so much about you on the Internet. My husband left me since last months after a little misunderstanding. I have never heard from him since then because he changed his number. I contacted doc Sea last week Tuesday and i explained to him and he assured me that he will come back to me. After the 48hours, he came back home begging me and We are back and in good terms now. He is truthful and straight forward. His email address is (LAVENDERLOVESPELL@YAHOO.COM ) Thank you so much again, i will let people in internet know about your good work.
