  • Tucker Carlson fired by msnbc?

    Tucker's out...

    ...at MSNBC.
    It's the only network on which there's no show with a prominent conservative, if you give CNN credit for Glenn Beck.

    I like his show.

    So....will Pat Buchanan take over?

    Doesn't surprise me one bit, Tucker seems to have run away from the right for quite some time now. He used to be a right wing hack back in the bow-tie days. Now he seems like a moderate.

    I have been expecting this for some time now. Pat would be a much better fit if they are looking for a vocal republican for a show.

      Maybe MSNBC will come to understand why no one watched Tucker or Scarborough.

      I doubt it, though. We'll probably get another one to explain why 81% of the country is delusional for hating George Bush.
      From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

      For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


      I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

      The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

        I really don't mind Tucker.

        I used to loathe him, but he is much better.

          I like Joe Scarborough a lot.

            Joe Scarborough runs the opinions on his show the way he ran as a politician--always with a finger in the wind, following whatever the conventional wisdom of the day is. One day he truly believes x (because he read in People or US magazine that a bunch of folks believe "x"), the next day it's "y".

            Scarborough is political commentary for people who need the jokes on Hee Haw explained to them.

            I don't agree politically with guys like George Will or Bill Safire or WFB, but I respect the consistency of their opinions and ability to clearly elucidate deviations from the expected.

                Probably got tired of him calling the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show on Sirius and being politically incorrect.

                  I didn't know Joe Scarborough back in his right wing days, but I think Tucker is doing exactly what you are talking about, that is why I thought he would be fired. He got the job because he was a big voice from the right and then changed his tone to moderate. Why keep him around.

                  Joe now with the other people he has on his "morning show" is really mainstream and I think doing good. I think he has a good thing going.

                    David Gregory is a bigger name and will probably get better ratings and is a little more to the left then Tucker which is where MSNBC has been steadily moving.

                    Scarbrough was terrible but I got some chuckles from Tucker. I like Gregory and his show could easily be better.

                      It seems like they have been getting Gregory ready for a show of is own for a while.
