Last week, Fox News analyst Tucker Carlson said NFL quarterback Michael Vick should be executed for torturing and murdering dogs. This week Carlson said he had been too emotional (it’s Fox, so who could tell?). Chris Chase:
I’m watching that (video) clip and thinking, “Hey, for someone who said something idiotic like ‘execute Michael Vick,’ Carlson is making a reasoned argument that both takes back that statement while rationally defending his dislike of Vick.” And then—BAM—he compares the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback to a child molester.
That’s rather standard fare on Fox News.
