Tucker Carlson: Minnesota Protests Over Police Killing a ‘Form of Tyranny’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson condemned the protests that have broken out in Minneapolis following the killing of George Floyd by police, claiming on Wednesday night that they are a “form of tyranny” and “oppression.”With demonstrations growing violent and chaotic as protesters have clashed with riot gear-clad police—who have cracked down on the protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets—Carlson devoted most of his attention to the actions of the demonstrators, who are protesting the death of a ...

Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth Try to Bring ‘Kung Flu’ Back

Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth on Thursday night defended the use of racist terms to describe the novel coronavirus, all while wondering why Democrats are “sucking up” to China by decrying these phrases.Taking aim at Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for introducing a Senate resolution condemning “anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19”—which includes the use of the phrase “Wuhan virus”—Carlson claimed Harris was denouncing “basic facts.” “Why is she sucking up to the government of ...

Colorado-based unicorn Guild Education is taking advantage of a buyer's market to acquire one of its old investors, and combine forces as edtech goes mainstream

Edtech unicorn Guild Education just announced that it scored its first acquisition — a move that few companies have so far made in the downturn, even though falling valuations make for a buyer's market. It bought Entangled Group, an edtech studio that builds products, offers consulting services, and has invested in a host of edtech startups including Guild Education itself. Guild declined to reveal the cost of the acquisition.  Guild Education's core business focused on helping Fortune 500 com...

Predators’ MVP Not Named Roman Josi

It’s difficult to talk about the 2019-20 Nashville Predators without mentioning the captain, Roman Josi. It’s near impossible to discuss the team’s MVP without the Swiss defenceman being in the conversation. Scratch that, it’s completely impossible to have the MVP discussion without Josi. Let’s get it out of the way early, Josi is the Predators’ MVP. In fact, if it wasn’t for an historic season from the Washington Capitals’ John Carlson, most may consider Josi as the slam dunk winner for the ...

Raging at China over coronavirus won't help – scrutinising our own governments might | Sam Geall

There is a case for an inquiry into events in China, but it has nothing to do with a politically convenient dossier about a Wuhan labHe was once fearful of endangering the country’s deep economic relationship with China, but the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, has now begun to campaign for an international inquiry into the Covid-19 outbreak. The call comes amid claims from the Trump administration that China covered up a laboratory leak in Wuhan, or even released the novel coronavirus...

Neoliberal Globalist Elite Peter Walker Sells Out U.S. To China

U.S.A. –-( What the Arbalest Quarrel found particularly fascinating from Walker’s mostly frank discussion with host, Tucker Carlson, that aired Thursday, April 23, 2020, on Tucker Carlson Tonight, was Walker’s specific reference to the expressions, ‘Collectivism’ and ‘Individualism.’ Walker admitted that China is a Collectivist society and that our own Nation is founded on the principles of Individualism. That much is true. But what Walker carefully avoided asserting is that Col...

One or the other philosophy may be the blueprint for a state or other political, social, economic and cultural entity; one or the other, but not both; and not an amalgam of the two, for the two are wholly incompatible. A brief description of the two philosophies may be foun...

Medical Community Calls Out Fox News’ Favorite New Contrarian Docs

Two doctors and urgent care center owners advocating for the end of California’s “shelter-in-place” order have become Fox News’ latest cause célèbre — even though their conclusions have been roundly dismissed by the medical community. Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, owners of a string of urgent care facilities in Bakersfield and the surrounding area, went viral in recent days after claiming that public health orders to combat the spread of COVID-19 are harmful, and that the disease is mu...

Lockdowns Didn’t Flatten The Curve, Tucker Carlson Muses, COVID-19 Just Isn’t That Deadly

The novel coronavirus just isn’t so deadly! That’s the conclusion Fox News host Tucker Carlson came to in a monologue Tuesday night. It’s not that social distancing and enforced business closures have slowed the virus, Carlson said — COVID-19 just isn’t as bad as public health officials say it is. “You may remember what they first told us back in February and March,” Carlson told viewers. “They said, we have to take radical steps in order to, quote, ‘flatten the curve.’ Well, six weeks later,...

Fox News Quietly Backs Away From Hyping Trump’s Coronavirus ‘Miracle Drug’

After weeks of incessantly hyping an unproven anti-malarial drug as a potential miracle cure for the coronavirus, Fox News has seemingly ditched its nearly round-the-clock promotion of hydroxychloroquine. Unsurprisingly, the change in tone coincided with President Donald Trump’s own retreat from touting the drug, and comes as multiple studies have shown no benefit to COVID-19 patients.Beginning in mid-to-late March and ramping up through the first two weeks of April, the president repeatedly lau...
