TNR: “It’s a shame MSNBC cancelled ‘Tucker’ to make way for David Gregory’s headache-inducing mess.”
TNR’s Sacha Zimmerman says:
Whatever bad memories you may have of Tucker Carlson’s “Crossfire” days, the most recent iteration of his show on MSNBC allowed him to return to expressing the kind of nuanced insight that first got him noticed as a young conservative writer. …
But MSNBC is sticking to the Fox mold of cable news, matching their conservative punditry with its liberal punditry. “Race for the White House” is a lamentable thrust toward that end, a seizure of a show with little in the way of smarts featuring David Gregory, a good reporter but also an anti-Bush symbol to replace the sole conservative on the MSNBC roster. Which is a shame–for journalists, for liberals, and most of all for an audience terrified by a looming giant red White House.
