Tucker Calls Some Journos Drunk and Lazy

The Daily Caller‘s Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson is never one to hold back. This morning’s appearance on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal was no exception.

“I am not defending the press. Lazy. A lot of reporters are dumb and in some places, drunk,” Carlson told C-SPAN moderator Steve Scully on location at George Mason University.

Scully asks him to choose: Dumb, lazy, biased, or drunk? Carlson replies, “I would take drunk, and I’m not endorsing of all. I would any day take drunk over lazy and dumb. I would say that if you want to be informed about what is happening int he world, particularly in America, it is not so hard.”

He got laughs when he spoke of his love for the New York Post, which he gets everyday on his doorstep. “The only paper that I get at home every morning is the New York Post. Some people hate it,” he said. “It is the most entertaining newspaper printed in the United States. Completely over the top. They cover the worst crimes, the worst religious any kind of crime, they are on it. … I read it. I love it. You know what? They do not assume you are going to read it. They know you are busy. It literally reaches out and grabs you by the throat and pulls you into its pages and holds you there until you are sated with filthy dwarf crime. [Laughter]”
