It's pretty sad when a supposed mainstream "news" media outlet has to resort the defense saying, "Come on now. Everyone knows it's all bullshit."

This is actually hilarious.... In case anyone missed it, Fox just called a large portion of their viewers dumbasses.

And they'll get away with it because they're right.

I don't know if you noticed, but back when the argument was first made the very same right wingers who repeated anything Carlson said the last night here as if it were fact insisted that they knew all along it's just a bunch of lies designed to entertain them. And then they kept on watching it and treating it as fact.

It's an interesting defense because

a. We all know that they are telling their dumbass viewers to believe this shit.
b. They know their viewers are dumbasses. And, with malice, they feed them bullshit.
c. They argue that only dumbasses would believe any of their bullshit, and raise their hands up to say, "Not on us."

Its something alt-reichers like Carlson do. Whenever someone catches them in the act, they just say its just a meme.

Sadly many of the ****ing idiots on this forum will still listen and take him seriously.

They know their viewers well. It's like Trump thinks they are scum that is beneath him, and they still think he is in it for them.

Not worth turning off my ad-blocker to read Business Insider drivel. :LOL:

Nice try, It's the author of this BS article that no one takes seriously.

This was about a Sluts defemination case being thrown out, and the "no one takes seriously" were about Tuckers quotes about the Slut and nothing else.

Tucker has a larger reach than almost his entire competition put together.

Soros funded Media Matters did get some of his advertisers to drop out. But for every one of them there are a half dozen others looking to get on. Some of those that dropped came back.

He argued that he could not be liable for defamation because no one believes he is telling the truth.

That was his defense, and it worked.

In other words - if you believe Tucker Carlson, he thinks you're a moron.

The actual quote used by the defense:

View attachment 67296503
That quote omits the further argument that no "reasonable person" would think that Tucker Carlson is a factual show.

They quite literally called his viewers ****ing morons, or to be kinder, unreasonable persons. It hasn't dawned on them because, well, yup...

Ever notice that women who are worth having, no matter their political affiliations, usually end up with Right Leaning Guys, relegating Leftist Guys to the friend zone.
