Home at Cato:

"I've admired the Cato Institute since I first read its publications, passed around like samizdat on my college campus," said Carlson of his new affiliation. "When I moved to Washington, I discovered that my impression of Cato had been right: The people I met there were some of the smartest, bravest and most interesting in the city. While others are blinded by expedience or group think, Cato stands on principle, always. I'm honored to be affiliated with it."

Carlson will use his initial time with Cato to focus on writing a book on the state of the American polity. Through other writings as well as media and public speaking appearances, he will also seek to educate the broader public about how the libertarian philosophy differs from the standard liberal and conservative orthodoxies embodied in the two main U.S. political parties.

Somehow I had missed Nat Hentoff had ended up there too.

It was ironic, in a way, that it would be the Daily Caller that published e-mails from Journolist. A few weeks ago, its editor, Tucker Carlson, asked if he could join the list. After asking other members, I said no, that the rules had worked so far to protect people, and the members weren't comfortable changing them.

Hi Tucker - I'm interested in the remarks you made today about Iran; specifically, that it "deserves to be annihilated" ( http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/02/22/430302/tucker-carlson-iran-annihilated/ ). I have a few questions about that:

(1) Do you have any specific ideas for how Iran should be annihilated? Do you favor a ground invasion, or a nuclear attack, or carpet bombing or something else? I realize you included the caveat that we should assess what effect it would have on energy prices, but assuming that's not an impediment, how should the annihiliation be achieved?

(2) Given your history of being a vocal proponent of American wars, have you ever considered enlistening and fighting in any of the wars you favor? I'm not suggesting that's an obligation for war advocacy: i'm just genuinely curious if you have considered it, and if so, why haven't you done it?

(3) When formulating your thoughts about annihilation, did you give any thought to how many Iranians would be killed from that? Do you have any idea of how many would die? Is there some number that's unacceptable to you?

Thanks -

Glenn Greenwald
SALON

Guff like this feels like some kind of last gasp, before the churn of what I'll laughing call the "culture" sends Carlson through the u-bend to his inescapable destiny next to Glenn Beck and all the rest of the tired and wrung-out ghouls. None of the "stars" are bigger than the structure in this world of right-wing media demegoguery, and even that structure seems to be degrading in the face of Newsmax et al, who are, in their moment of cannibalising the mothership, making the whole thing more atomised and cliquey, which is surely not their point.

MUST SEE TV

Far-right pundit and former Fox News host Tucker Carlson confirmed on Tuesday he was in Moscow to interview Vladimir Putin, and said he will air his conversation with Russia’s president to counter what he described as pro-Ukraine “fawning pep sessions” by western media covering the war.

Speculation had been growing for days that Carlson, who was dumped by Fox last year for “getting too big for his boots”, had traveled to the Russian capital to meet Putin, whose reasons for invading Ukraine he says have a right to be heard by the American public.

But his visit, which reportedly has included visits to the Bolshoi ballet and dining in fine restaurants, has drawn accusations he is acting as a propaganda tool for Putin, whom he has frequently defended. Russian media, meanwhile, has hailed Carlson as a celebrity “who speaks the truth”.
