“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

Wrong advertisers. They should get some serious traction with the RNC, Republican reelection campaigns, and the KKK.

I guess racism doesn't make for good PR anymore. What is our nation coming to? We need to MAGA!!! (Cue Prince singing "So tonight I'm gonna party like it's eighteen ninety-nine.")

Slavery had been abolished by 1899. The GOP needs you to go back a century earlier.

Much too early to say. But it's a good sign.

Yeah but we are talking about the Jim Crow Era, so I would go with LFC's date. Racism did make for good politics in the late 19th century, at least in the South.

This came in my news feed this morning. Unfortunately, not enough...

A Monday night episode from one year ago, the broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Aug. 20, 2018, had 16 minutes of ads, with 38 commercials that aired across the nation, according to iSpot.tv, the television ads measurement company. The Monday night episode this week, by contrast, had 13.5 minutes of commercials, with 23 nationally aired spots. Eight of the 23 were promotions for other Fox properties.

Mr. Carlson still attracts a large audience. He drew 3.1 million viewers on Monday night, the second-largest audience in all of cable that night. That number put him close behind his Fox News colleague Sean Hannity,

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we pay the military pay to protect the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes us very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

I guess Faux News doesn't think that being viewed as the #1 promoter of racist tropes is good for the future of the business. Ditto for a pile of advertisers who don't want to be smeared with his bile and stench.
