Kind of an amusing moment at CPAC convention where the conservative movement is trying to find itself (I feel for you all, really! We on the left have been there.), and Carlson tries to praise Fox News as an example of a good right wing news source, while arguing that right wing news should emulate the New York Times. He says that the Times is a liberal paper, but is a news organizatin first and does care about the accuracy of its reporting. He gets booed for saying it.
Carlson’s MSNBC show didn’t appeal to conservatives, probably because it was on MSNBC, and his show’s ratings suffered. But it had its moments, including this exchange with Rachel Maddow. Everybody credits Olbermann with pumping up Maddow, but she really caught her television break on Carlson’s show.
