Why we don't mind Tucker Carlson being off TV

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

From his live chat at WaPo [emphasis added]:

It is amusing, especially since as you point out, Obama himself is opposed to gay marriage. So it's a little much to hyperventilate over Rick Warren. To answer your question: The left hates traditional Christianity. That's the real complaint.

A simple question for WaPo, does Carlson actually get paid to participate in these live chats? Because if somebody like Tucker gets paid to write the following (even for a vacuous WaPo live chat), then we begin to understand why media companies are facing financial woes:

Somebody needs to write a book about why the radical left is so much more interesting and open-minded than your garden variety lifestyle liberal. Whenever I meet a lefty who smokes, or who buy groceries at Safeway rather than Whole Foods, I know we're going to get along.

Whatever you say Tucker.
