When it comes to public disputes, sometimes it is hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. On Monday night, that sort of reality came to Fox News in the form of Tucker Carlson, one of Fox’s prime time assets that actually yield them a profit, claiming that the New York Times was seeking to doxx him and his family by publishing their home address, and he took the last five minutes of his show to do so.
“They hate my politics. They want this show off the air,” Carlson told his millions of viewers Monday. “If one of my children gets hurt because of a story they wrote, they won’t consider it collateral damage. They know it’s the whole point of the exercise: to inflict pain on our family, to terrorize us, to control what we say. That’s the kind of people they are.”…
“But the New York Times followed us,” he said. “Their story about where we live is slated to run in the paper this week. Editors there know exactly what will happen to my family when it does run.”
“How would Murray Carpenter and his photographer, Tristan Spinski, feel if we told you where they live if we put pictures of their homes on the air?” Carlson asked. “What if we published the home address of every one of the soulless, robot editors at the New York Times, who assigned and managed this incitement of violence against my family?”
As of this writing, Tucker Carlson has done nothing of the sort. But, reports claim that some of his fans did.
