Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 28, 2020

A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a defamation case against self-styled Fox News instigator Tucker Carlson. In other words, "any reasonable viewer" doesn't actually believe what Tucker Carlson is saying to be true. It is therefore unreasonable to take what Tucker Carlson says as truth. Good note, judge.

Does Tucker feel emancipated at this moment, humiliated, or both?

This judge is a Trump appointee.

You MAGAts and Fox News drones should be proud.

Tucker's show not being news is not news...

He is however a credible source of racism though.

Tucker doesn't really need the job...

He's the heir to SWANSON tv dinners....

He's just doing it to keep himself busy....
and not bored....

The sad part isn't that Fox news is labelled as not news. The sad part is people on the other side think the news outlets they read are actual news. So both sides get stuck in only reading what they agree with and get no additional perspective.

Re 6

BS. Of course.

The sad part is that your ONLY source of information is the Lies and propaganda of fixed news.

I use multiple sources from all over the world to cross check and reference any claims.

Including fixed news.

Well it might be because tactics like this aren't used by CNN and MSNBC. They don't argue they aren't news and audiences shouldn't expect them to be honest.

Sorry, but you're just wrong. Other outlets might spin the story to favor their view, but only the ones slanted to the right create false stories and reasons out of thin air.

What idiot thinks an opinion show is hard news?

"What idiot thinks an opinion show is hard news?"

More to the point, what idiot believes opinion shows should be exempt from libel laws?

This ruling seems like it makes it impossible for Carlson to slander anybody...

#17 | Posted by snoofy at 2020-09-28 09:04 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 1

It's a free ticket for Carlson to say what ever he wants.

The people who believe him will continue. Regardless of whether his show is classified as actual news.

Trump judges are already doing what they were chosen to do.
