Thought we were done with this last year. But
Tucker Carlson returned to “Hannity” on Monday and walked back his statement that footballer Michael Vick “should’ve been executed” for his abuse of dogs.
“This is what happens when you get too emotional,” Carlson said. “I’m a dog lover, I love them and…I know a lot about what Michael Vick did…I overspoke. I’m uncomfortable with the death penalty in any circumstance. Of course I don’t think he should be executed, but I do think that what he did is truly appalling.”
Hannity noted that Vick had gone to prison for what he did and paid a heavy public price, and that he has done work with many animal rights groups since his release. “Shouldn’t we believe in redemption?” he asked.
“A convicted child molester doesn’t get to adopt kids,” Carlson responded. He quickly added that he wasn’t comparing Vick to a child molester, but wanted to point out that just because he worked with animal rights societies didn’t mean that people couldn’t be “disgusted” at his actions. – Huffington Post
How do these people get hired, let alone keep their jobs? The inarticulate oaf manages to contradict himself in each subsequent utterance.
Am I wrong to believe that on Faux News, this is a desirable attribute? That it successfully garners attention, therefore viewership, leading to increased revenue? That the integrity of this “news” program is that of “Dancing With the Dildos?”
No wonder it’s America’s favorite news program.
PS “Overspoke”? He said he “overspoke”? What’s that, a bicycle part?
