Stanley On ‘Situation:’ “All Cross & No Fire”

“The Situation with Tucker Carlson,” starring the former Crossfire host, “is all cross and no fire,” Alessandra Stanley writes in one of her most scathing reviews since her “gratuitously nasty” NYT column about Katie Couric in April. She calls MSNBC the “River Styx of television talk shows” and says “washouts often get a second chance” on MS and CNBC. She says the discussion on The Situation is “as hurried and abrupt as an auction at an agricultural fair.” And she concludes that “MSNBC should follow Crossfire’s lead and end the misery. The Situation is too light a cross to bear, and now its time to fire.”
