Tucker Carlson on CNN’s bias reportedly exposed


THAT’S “THE STORY” FOR THIS MONDAY NIGHT, I WILL SEE YOU BACK HERE TOMORROW. GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY. MUSICAL SPEAK OF THE TELEVISION NEWS BUSINESS IS A VERY SMALL PLACE SOME MAY CALL IT INCESTUOUS. CREATES MOST OF THE PEOPLE TO DO THIS WHERE JOB FOR A LIVING KNOW EACH OTHER. MANY OF OUR TOGETHER OVER THE YEARS. THERE AREN’T THAT MANY EMPLOYERS SO IT’S NOT SURPRISING THAT A NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON THIS CHANNEL, INCLUDING ME, ONCE WORKED ACROSS THE DIAL AT CNN AND AS ANY OF US CAN AND WILL BE HAPPY TO TELL YOU, CNN HAS ALWAYS BEEN A LIBERAL PLACE. IT WAS FOUNDED BY TED TURNER. BUT CNN WAS NOT ALWAYS NAKEDLY PARTISAN. IT USED TO BE A NEWS NETWORK AND IT ALWAYS FUNCTIONED AS IT DOES NOW, AS A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN. IF THAT’S UNDER DEVELOPMENT. WHAT CHANGED? THE HEAD OF THE COMPANY CHANGE. THE PRESIDENT OF SIENA NOW IS JEFF TUCKER. HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHANGE. HERE’S HOW I ONCE DESCRIBED HIM ON THIS PROGRAM. SUMMONED HIS MINIONS. FROM ACROSS THE CABLE EMPIRE, THEY GATHERED AS BECKONING, EACH WITH TALKING POINTS READY. SO IF IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF HARRY POTTER, THAT’S BECAUSE IN SOME WAYS IT IS. YOU WON’T SEE GARGOYLES AT CNN HEADQUARTERS BUT YOU CAN FEEL THE POLITICAL AMBITIONS OF THE MAN WHO RUNS EVERY DETAIL OF THAT PLACE. IT OFTEN FEELS LIKE EVERY SEGMENT ON THAT CHANNEL IS CHOREOGRAPHED FOR MAXIMUM POLITICAL EFFECT. IF YOU’VE EVER SEEN IT, YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE SAYING AND IT TURNS OUT, THERE IS A REASON IT FEELS THAT WAY. EARLIER TODAY, THE GROUP, PROJECT VERITAS, RELEASED A SERIES OF AUDIO AND VIDEO RECORDINGS. IT WAS MADE BY SOMEONE WITHIN CNN. NOW WE HAVE NOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED THE TAPE WE ARE ABOUT TO SHOW YOU. WE DID CALL OVER TO CNN ASKED THEM BUT THEY DID NOT RESPOND. WE HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE ANY OF THIS IS FAKE. THE RECORDINGS WE ARE ABOUT TO SHOW YOU INDICATE ZUCKER DICTATING EVERY DETAIL OF CNN’S PROGRAMMING AND IN DOING SO, WAS CLEARLY PARTISAN INDUCTIVE IN MIND. THIS IS HIM TELLING HIS MINIONS HOW TO SHAPE THE COVERAGE OF SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM HIMSELF.>>I’M HOPING THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE AT CNN WERE FRIENDLY AND IT’S TIME TO CALL THEM OUT.>>”PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT OF FREE JOSEON”>>Tucker: GOT THAT? THAT’S THE STANDARD. THAT’S THE NEW STANDARD AT THE NEWS NETWORK. THE CABLE NEWS NETWORK. LINDSEY GRAHAM HAS APPEARED ON FOX SO I CAUGHT HIM. AND SO CNN DID JUST THAT ALL WHILE PRETENDING COVERAGE WAS LEGITIMATE. HERE IS JEFF ZUCKER TELLING HIS EMPLOYEES THAT NO MATTER WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD, THE IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD TRUMP, WHICH IN EFFECT IS A SYMBOLIC ACT, IS NEVERTHELESS THE ONLY STORY THAT REALLY MATTERS. LISTEN.>>NETANYAHU>>SETANYAHU>>SPEANYAHU>>SPEAKYAHU>>SPEAK AHU>>SPEAK ALL OF THESE MOVES ARE MOVED TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT SO DON’T LOSE SIGHT OF THAT.>>Tucker: FOR A NEWS MAN THE DISTINCT LACK OF CLARITY IN THOSE INSTRUCTIONS BUT THE EFFORT WAS CLEAR ENOUGH. DON’T LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT THE BIGGEST STORY IS. THAT’S AN ORDER. THE MESSAGE APPARENTLY HAS BEEN RECEIVED BY THE PEOPLE WHO WORKED FOR JEFF TUCKER. LISTEN AS THE CNN STAFFER EXPLAINED THAT HE AND OF THE REST OF THEM KNOW EXACTLY WHAT JEFF ZUCKER WANTS.>>THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO. JEFF ZUCKER WANTS IMPEACHMENT EVERY SINGLE DAY. YEAH. HE WANTS IMPEACHMENT SO ABOVE ALL ELSE.>>Tucker: THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO IF JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER WANTS IMPEACHMENT EVERY SINGLE DAY. IMPEACHMENT ABOVE ALL. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY DELIVERED DAY AFTER DAY. DESPITE THE FACT THAT THERE WAS REALLY ANYTHING NEW TO REPORT, NOT REALLY. AND YET, BECAUSE PROJECTION IS THE SIGNATURE HALLMARK OF THE LEFT, JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER ACCUSES LEFT, JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER ACCUSEO LEFT, JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER ACCUSEH LEFT, JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER ACCUSER PEOPLE OF TRAFFICKING IN FAKE NEWS. HILARIOUS. LISTEN TO THIS.>>I THINK WHAT’S GOING ON IN AMERICA NOW IS REALLY FUNDAMENTALLY THE RESULTS OF YEARS OF FAKE NEWS, CONSPIRACY, NONSENSE, AND I’M DEAD SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. STILL WHEN I’M DEAD SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. ONE OF THE LEAST SERIOUS PEOPLE, LEAST IMPRESSIVE PEOPLE, LEAST ARTICULATE PEOPLE IN PUBLIC LIFE. [LAUGHS] EVEN HIS EMPLOYEES CAN’T TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY. LISTEN TO ONE OF THEM.>>THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE OUT HERE TRYING TO DO WHAT THEY THINK IS INSTRUCTIVE JOURNALISM AND THEN YOU GET ON THE CALL AND BIG BOSS JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO AND IT’S LIKE TO IN A CERTAIN YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW HIS VERDICT.>>Tucker: WE ARE LAUGHING BECAUSE HOW CAN YOU NOT LAUGH? IT’S OUT THERE. LIKE THERE IS NOTHING HIDDEN AT THIS POINT. BUT IT’S ALSO POIGNANT. HERE YOU HAVE A KID THAT WORKS THERE WHO THINKS HIS JOURNALISM AND HE LOOKS AROUND AND SEES PEOPLE, BECAUSE THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE AT CNN, WHO ARE TRYING TO COMMIT JOURNALISM BUT THE BIG BOSS, JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER, WON’T ALLOW IT. INTEGRITY BE. JUST DO WHAT JEFF ZUCKER ZUCKER SAYS, WHETHER IT’S TRUE OR NOT. THAT’S THE DEFINITION OF STATE MEDIA, RELENTLESS CHEERLEADING. RELENTLESS NEVER ENDING SHILLING FOR THE RULING CLASS. AMERICA DOESN’T LOVE IT. THEY DON’T WANT TO. BUT EVERYONE IN WASHINGTON LOVES HIM. NOT SURPRISING. MOTHER OF PANIC ATTACK AND RADICALS IN THE AGE OF TRUMP TRANSITION NOW. GREAT TO SEE AROUND ME. I DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH AN OPINION PROGRAM. AS I OFTEN SAY, NEVER ATTACKED RACHEL MADDOW BECAUSE SHE’S NOT LYING TO ME, SHE’S JUST GIVING OPINION. IF JEFF ZUCKER LIKER IS OUT THERE CLAIMING THAT HE IS RUNNING A NEWS NETWORK AND HIS EMPLOYEES ARE SAYING THINGS LIKE THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO IF ZUCKER WANTS IMPEACHMENT, WE HAVE TO DO WHAT HE SAYS, I MEAN, IS THAT JOURNALISM?>>THAT’S THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT THIS. THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE STORY. EVERY DAY, THERE’S NOTHING ELSE HAPPENING IN THE WORLD, NOTHING ELSE WORTH COVERING, IF YOU ARE A GENERAL WORTH EXPLORING OTHER SUBJECTS, PLEASE DON’T DO THAT. WE DON’T DO THAT HERE. IT’S FRUSTRATING FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE GOOD JOURNALISTS WHO WORK THERE AND THINK MAYBE SOMEDAY IT’S NOT THE TOP STORY OR THE SLIGHTEST MINUTE AND IT IS NEW IS PERTAINING TO RUSSIA OR UKRAINE OR WHATEVER IT IS, MAYBE THERE’S SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT, NO, YOU CAN. AT SUCH AN EXCELLENT POINT. WHATEVER THE FAULTS FOX NEWS MAY HAVE, I CAN SAY WITH TOTAL SINCERITY, WE NEVER ONCE BEEN TOLD WHAT TO COVER IT. WE DON’T HAVE SOME CENTRALIZED MORNING CALL WHERE THE BIG BOSS GETS ON AND SAYS THIS IS THE STORY, COVER THIS. THAT’S WHY THEY HIRE YOU. TO MAKE THESE CALLS. HE AND ANN, IT’S A COMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEM.>>Tucker: IT WHILE THEY ACT LIKE THEY ARE THE PERFECT PURVEYORS OF KNOWLEDGE THAT CAN NEVER AIR. I MEAN, THERE’S A RANGE OF PEOPLE WHO SAY THEM. I AGREE, THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ABBOTT’S OTHER NETWORKS, THESE OTHER MAINSTREAM NEWS OUTLETS, THEY ACT AS IF THEY REPRESENT SOME CENTRAL POSITION THAT IS BEYOND REPROACH. IT’S DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU ARE DOING HERE WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS WEIRD OR STRANGE OR WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS JUST RELAYING OBJECTIVE INFORMATION. I THINK WHAT’S HAPPENED OVER THE LAST COUPLE YEARS IS REALIZED THAT’S NOT TRUE. THEY STOP BELIEVING THAT LIE, THAT NARRATIVES LIE, ABOUT WHAT OTHER JOURNALISTS DO.>>Tucker: SO IF YOU WERE CNN, WHY WOULDN’T YOU JUST BE HONEST? YOU SEE THE REST OF THESE GUYS, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY PARTISANS. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. WHY INSULT THIS — HE CONTINUED AS INSULT THIS?>>EXACTLY. MOST PEOPLE DO HAVE OPINIONS. PRETENDING THAT YOU ARE AN OBJECTIVE PURVEYOR OF THE TRUTH WHEN WE KNOW YOU HAVE OPINIONS, MAYBE THAT’S THE GOOD THING ABOUT ALL OF THIS ISN’T THAT’S NOW MORE OUT IN THE OPEN. I THINK MORE PEOPLE REALIZE THAT THERE ARE OPINIONS AND YOU SHOULD TAKE THAT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT WHEN YOU ARE CONSIDERING THE INFORMATION YOU’RE BRINGING IN.>>Tucker: EXACTLY. STOP LYING AND WE CAN GET ALONG. GREAT TO SEE YOU TONIGHT. AS PROJECT VERITAS DOES MAKE CLEAR, JEFF ZUCKER’S REGIME WAS SEEN AND IS ONLY POSSIBLE WITH THE HELP OF OTHERS AT THE NETWORK.>>LOVE THEM OR HATE HIM, JOHN LENNON IS BASICALLY LIKE ANTI-TRUMP, HE’S GOING TO THE LEFT, SO MAYBE DON LEVIN COULD DISCLOSE THAT BUT CNN MAKES IT APPEAR AS THOUGH WE HAVE 24 HOURS BUT THAT’S NOT TRUE.>>Tucker: I HAVE A SENSE THAT NICK NEVILL IS IN SOME TROUBLE TONIGHT. AUTHOR MARK STEYN JOINS US TO ASSESS ALL OF THIS BID WHAT YOU MAKE OF WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED TONIGHT?>>WELL, IT HELPS TO CONFIRM WHY CNN IS IN THE STATE IT’S IN. IF YOU RECALL, I THINK THIS WAS THE YEAR BEFORE PRESIDENT TRUMP CAME DOWN THAT ESCALATOR. CNN WAS — WENT NUTS OVER THE MINUTE MALAYSIA AIRLINES INSTANT LEADING UP TO THEIR FANTASTIC FAIRY THAT THE JET HAD FLOWN INTO A BLACK HOLE WHICH YOU MAY RECALL THEY RESPECTED JOURNALISTS WERE ADVANCING AT ONE POINT AND YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT BUT THAT HAS THE KIND OF OBJECTIVE SURREAL NOT SEEN US ALL OF ITS OWN. IT’S IN THE TRADITION OF A LOT OF TABLOIDS BUT IT’S NOT JUST PUTTING YOURSELF AT THE SERVICE OF ONE POLITICAL PARTY AND DOING THE BIDDING OF THAT PARTY AND I THINK THAT’S BEEN A DISASTER FOR CNN. YOU TALK ABOUT JEFF ZUCKER, HE HAS A NETWORK TO RUN AND IT SEEMS TO ME A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT ARE TERRIBLE ABOUT CNN, BEFORE YOU GET TO THE BIAS, IT’S SEDENTARY COMPARED TO — I SAY THIS WITH WHATEVER OBJECTIVITY YOU TAKE IT WITH BUT I THINK IT’S DREARY COMPARED TO FOX. I THINK IT’S ANCHORS ARE NOT COMPELLING. WHEN IT HAS BIG SPECIAL EVENTS SUCH AS ITS RATHER CURIOUS LGBTQ DEBATE THE OTHER NIGHT WHEN JOE BIDEN STARTED RIFFING ON BATH HOUSES, IN THEORY, THAT I WANT TO BE A MUST-SEE TV BUT IT WAS A RAGING BLAST BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT CNN COVERED IT SO THERE ARE ACTUAL THINGS THAT AS A TELEVISION INC. EXECUTIVE, JEFF ZUCKER LIKER SHOULD BE TRYING TO CORRECT. AND ONCE HE’S MADE IT LESS BAD IN TELEVISION TERMS, THEN IF HE WANTS TO ATTEND HIS POLITICAL BIASES, HE WOULD AT LEAST HAVE ACCOMPLISHED HIS PRIMARY TASK, WHICH IS TO BE FUNCTIONING TELE- VISIONING EXECUTIVES.>>Tucker: THAT’S THE INTERESTING FACT OF ALL THIS. CNN, FOR ALL OF ITS EFFORT TO CARRY WATER FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, IS NOT ACTUALLY WORKING. SO WHAT’S THE POINT OF THIS?>>IT ISN’T AND THEY ARE IN THIS TERRIBLE TRAP BECAUSE THEY STARTED AS THE FIRST CABLE NEWS CHANNEL AND THEY HAD A KIND OF USA TODAY IMAGE. PEOPLE JUST THOUGHT OF IT AS SOMETHING THAT WAS THERE. WHEN YOU GO TO THE AIRPORT, IT’S THERE. LIKE “USA TODAY” IS OUTSIDE YOUR HOTEL DOOR WHEN YOU ARE STAYING AT A MARRIOTT HOTEL OR WHATEVER. WHEN YOU GO TO A FOREIGN HOTEL, ANNA MANN OR JORDAN OR WHATEVER, THEY’VE GOT CNN INTERNATIONAL PLAYING OVER AS YOU EAT YOUR BREAKFAST IN THE RESTAURANT. SO THEY HAVE THIS BLAND IMAGE AND YET AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE HIGH FOR PARTISANS AND THEY CAN’T MAKE THOSE TWO THINGS ALIGN PROPERLY. I MEAN CNN RIGHT NOW IS THE MOST IRRELEVANT. IF YOU WANT A HARD-CORE LEFTY PROPAGANDIST, THEY DO THAT. SAME WITH NBC. THEY DO THAT BETTER THAN CNN.>>Tucker: RIGHT.

  1. Fox News is no better than CNN and Tucker is being disingenuous by pretending otherwise. Fox News is right wing propaganda

  2. Every sense I contacted Noble gold I mean getting nothing but garbage con artist filthy p***you can stick it up your butt there bud

  3. Another conflict of interest that I learned is that Zucker and Trump worked fairly close when Trump was on the apprentice. They apparently despise each other and that could be why CNN has this ongoing attack on the president.. and now we have a recording of Zucker basically admitting that he has it out for Trump and nothing else matters to him..

  4. Errm I'm pretty sure what he's doing is of the right and not left, I mean he's got his business and can do whatever he wants…right? Isn't that like a conservative mantra?

  5. The irony of a Fox News host calling out CNN for being ideological and having a partisan agenda is too much. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

  6. Zucker was born into a Jewish family in Homestead, Florida, near Miami. For me it’s a not big news What’s going in the US then?! They think that the most intelligent and they rule this country. They will lose this war!

  7. The unbelievable irony of this coverage and comment section is almost nauseating. Do republicans truly lack that much self awareness? This is how spoiled children act…pointing a finger at everyone else and never looking in the mirror.
    Btw, I have no qualms with what he's saying. Everyone knows CNN is liberal. But to report that as though it's bad news while Fox leans so far right is just borderline propaganda. A brain washing tool. To not see the obvious is just unbelievable.

  8. Tucker you soon stand alone of thrash talks. Rest of Fox is finally see what's wrong president have done.
    You will never admit that the president have press Ukraine and yous Rudi to run around with others country. That's is almost traitor it can be. Fo(ake)x news.

  9. cant weight till they have Anderson or don lemon have show talking about o this is all fake news and trump is behind all this fake news because you know they cant do 1 show with out saying trumps name lol

  10. State Media is exactly what CNN is along with the rest of them. Fox is the only outlet that airs both sides of a story….most of the time.

  11. So at around 5:40 those 2 guys were fired. I'm pretty sure of that. Good journalists are almost nonexistent!!! Wishing the best for them in their future.

  12. CNN is now a smaller version of the communist government that liberals wanted. Oh my mistake I meant “socialist”

  13. Sugar coating the real truth All of the media is under control signs n symbols is how you really wake up and see the real people in control it's sad these people actually think they are God's it's unbelievable

  14. Mr Zucker behaves like a soviet bureaucrat ! Clearly he's forgotten he lives in a democracy and as head of a news outlet it is his job to report what is happening and not make it up to suit his own agenda . He is an absolute disgrace and should be dismissed from CNN with immediate effect !

  15. Zucker is as much of a journalist as I am a surgeon… so how bout that appendix… you don’t Need it. Aside from that CNN doesn’t have 5 minutes of unbiased news.

  16. Zucker suffers small man syndrome, we have one just like him as our Speaker in the House of Commons, his name is Bercowitz. CNN; Communist News Network
    The people tuning in realised this a long time ago which is why its ratings have been bombing for a long time. It gives me back my hope that the American people are more savvy than 'fake news' outfits like cnn believe them to be. It needs a good clearout of its rotten people.

  17. As History teacher I am always sad yet adamant to explain to students how much yellow journalism has ruined in the world. This is what "fake news" is actually called. Trump is completely accurate in saying that this goes on and is in the right to call it out. Yellow journalism was essentially the cause of the Spanish-American War and part of the cause of the Civil War among others. It also has caused millions of people, innocent, to be killed, world wide. Journalists also, nowadays, aren't even journalists. They're activists pushing their narrative. Thank you to Tucker for airing this.

  18. A few months ago I added CNN to my news favourites list because I thought it might be fun once in a while to see Trump Derangement Syndrome in action, but it's not fun anymore. I skip right over that channel every morning and don't even bother anymore.

  19. I wish CNN would report on something real… like, why doesn't Vin Diesel not look like the character of Bloodshot in the new Bloodshot trailer?

  20. I Like Tucker sometimes.. But how can Fox report on a network having Bias LOL This is obviously the all Republican network.

  21. Does anyone have a link to the full videos of the whistle blower. YouTube censored the search so bad I’ve spent an hour trying to find the videos. CNN is the only channel that comes up

  22. I love how there's a network bashing another network of being influenced by political agenda. It's like how American politicians accuse other countries of meddling in our politics.

  23. Now imagine this but only you must pay for it 12€ a month.

    In germany the gouverment has a contract with a privat company to produce neutral News for the State, our News are as left as it gets and in youtube a groupe finanzed with our money makes videos about why an islamisation is not so Bad but it is not hapening oh and freespech Bad Bad it can hurt minoritys, do we need it?

    I got a open Bill of 300€

  24. Im from Scandinavia EU and i used to watch CNN as a kid. I remember even era where Breaking News were Breaking News. I have no poiltical agenda here, but i hate biased media. Fox or CNN and so on.. we have our own biased media in Finland EU >.<

  25. Why are billionaires all left wingers? Are the same people that rant about the millionaires and billionaires. Just seems a bit disingenuous to me.

  26. Even Ted Turnet called CNN, "Chicken Noodle Network." Remember all the faked reports from the Persian Gulf war staged in Atlanta?
