Publisher's Summary

“Liberals used to be funny.... They had a claim on cool. Then something happened,” wrote Tucker Carlson in 2003. As the number-one host on Fox News, Carlson regularly exposes the failings of the modern left, and he does so with humor, wit, and energy.

But Carlson’s rise to the top at Fox only came after Bill O’Reilly’s sudden departure due to allegations of sexual harassment - allegations O’Reilly has consistently denied. Left-wing critics hoped the departure of O’Reilly would torpedo Fox News, but the network’s transition to Carlson did nothing to lower its ratings.

This audiobook explains how Bill O’Reilly’s career at Fox ended and contrasts the working-class, on-the-ground style of O’Reilly with the class and subtlety of Tucker Carlson. Both conservative hosts are in touch with the common-sense principles of the modern conservative movement, but they come from very different places.

Find out how allegations of sexual harassment from 2004 were recycled in 2017 to end O’Reilly’s career, what Tucker Carlson thought of O’Reilly, and how Carlson began his career.

Propaganda but...

I have a somewhat sick fascination with conservative propaganda. This is short and relatively painless, but don't expect a balanced perspective. The book ends by asserting that Tucker Carlson is funnier than John Oliver so you can tell that this is objective and factual.
