Tucker Carlson says he's the victim of a powerful bully. Meet the 24-year-old who found the tapes.

Washington Post

Madeline Peltz works the night shift at the liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America. Given the timing of that particular shift, one of her main responsibilities is watching Tucker Carlson’s 8 p.m. show on Fox News.

And she’s watched a lot of Tucker Carlson.

Carlson has been in the public eye for some 20 years — first as a print journalist, then a television commentator, founder of the conservative site the Daily Caller, and now, Fox News host, with a prime-time slot and a salary in the millions. But people have been confused by Carlson’s tone on Fox since he took over for Bill O’Reilly in 2018, noting concern about diversity and demographics in his show.

After many Carlson-watching hours, the 24-year-old researcher developed a working theory, which she outlined on the nonprofit’s website: that Carlson is using his platform on Fox News to introduce white-nationalist ideas to the mainstream, making him a uniquely prominent “mouthpiece for white supremacy.”


I had breakfast with the Media Matters/American Bridge staff this morning. They're the only SuperPAC I give money to, because their oppo research is stellar.

2. Carlson certainly seems touchy about anyone delving into his past

Kind of weird for a public figure with such a well-compensated daily platform.

4. Tucker is worried about his

sponsors bailing on him. The rest is just more of his Sh*t Show for Audience Ratings.

5. And once again it's someone else's fault for their bad behavior


Tucker you outgrew your childish bowtie look. Now step up and be a man, and just admit you and you alone are responsible for the HATE you project into the world. You and you alone could do the right thing, but we all know that doing the right thing is not what you are comfortable doing.

Here's a nice concerto for your whine

11. Samantha Bee said

the letters of his name could be rearranged to say ‘Old Crackernuts’.

I think that’s an ideal nickname to use when referring to TC in the future.

14. Major Hoorays for Madeline Peltz taking a big one for America

hours and hours of watching Carlson. She deserves combat pay.

She may have lost some battles, but looks like she may win the war.

15. I Feel Sorry for Peltz Having to Listen to So Many of Carlson's Rants

She's probably ready to gag.

17. Thats how it works Tucker, first you get your make your speech freely and then we get ...

to make ours. We don't like what you freely say, Tucker, get over it.

Like Jon Steward asked you, does your mother make you wear those stupid looking bow ties?
