Tucker Carlson came back from a short fishing vacation and went after the New York Times for an upcoming hit piece they are planning to run that he says puts his family in danger.
Tucker warned the paper not to publish his address and other personal information because he correctly tells them that this would put his family in danger as protesters would surely show up 24/7 to harass or do worse to the Fox star and his family.
Wow, a new low for the New York Times if they go through with this. From Mediaite:
“As a matter of journalism, there is no conceivable justification for a story like that,” he said. “The paper is not alleging we’ve done anything wrong and we haven’t. We pay our taxes. We like our neighbors. We’ve never had a dispute with anyone. So why is the New York Times doing a story on the location of my family’s house? Well, you know why. To hurt us, to injure my wife and kids so that I will shut up and stop disagreeing with them.”
He brought up the time in late 2018 when antifa protesters gathered outside his house, telling viewers, “They vandalized our home. They threatened my wife. She called 911 while hiding in the closet.” He said they eventually decided to move.
Carlson told viewers the paper is going to run its report this week:
“Editors there know exactly what will happen to my family when it does run. I called them today and I told them. But they didn’t care. They hate my politics. They want this show off the air. If one of my children gets hurt because of a story they wrote, they won’t consider it collateral damage. They know it’s the whole point of the exercise. To inflict pain on our family, to terrorize us, to control we say.”
During the segment, Carlson brought up the reporter and the photographer apparently working on said report, asking how they would feel “if we told you where they live, if we put pictures of their homes on the air.”
A New York Times spokesperson provided this statement to Mediaite after the segment aired:
“While we do not confirm what may or may not publish in future editions, The Times has not and does not plan to expose any residence of Tucker Carlson’s, which Carlson was aware of before tonight’s broadcast.”
