Tucker Carlson Takes to the Web
Posted on Jan 11, 2010
Giving the Drudge Report and Free Republic a little competition in the conservative Web space, former CNN pundit (see: “Crossfire”) and bow-tie enthusiast Tucker Carlson has launched his own site, the Daily Caller. That’s “the DC” for short—snappy, Mr. Carlson!
Here’s a little snippet from Carlson’s “Letter From Tucker,” in which he confesses that he and his colleagues “hope you return compulsively.” Hmmm! —KA
“Letter From Tucker” in the Daily Caller:
Welcome to the Daily Caller. Editors’ letters have a well-deserved reputation for undue length and self-seriousness, so in 15,000 words or less let me confirm the stereotype.
Just kidding. I’ll be (by my standards) brief. This is primarily a news site. We see our core job as straightforward: Find out what’s happening and tell you about it. We plan to be accurate, both in the facts we assert and in the conclusions we imply. If we’re not, tell us. We’ll fix it immediately.
