Tucker Carlson Talks Daily Caller, Journolist, CNN’s Primetime Addition

tucker_8-4.jpgIn the latest interview for’s “So What Do You Do” series, FishbowlDC’s Betsy Rothstein talks to Tucker Carlson who responds to a range of topics varying from his Daily Caller venture to his future in cable news. Here’s an excerpt:

You worked on CNN’s Crossfire back in the day. What do you think of debate programs generally, and what do you think about CNN’s new program with Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker — do you think it’ll work?

I think it’s great. I like debate programs. There aren’t any left — it’s all single hosts giving their opinions. Yeah, I think [Spitzer] will be good. He’ll be better than he was as attorney general or governor. It’s the definition of stunt casting. I don’t know what else you’re going to do if you’re CNN.

Carlson also discusses his “feud” with Keith Olbermann as well as gives his take on the recent JournoList to-do. Read the whole thing here.
