    Media Matters for America : Canada in the crosshairs: Media conservatives sling mud north of the border

    In reaction to some of Canadian PM Paul Martin's criticism of US environmental policy, Mr. Carlson has come up with some new insults to sling in Canada's direction. Here is a sampling:

    I know he is an "entertainer" who makes statements like this to garner attention to himself, but I wonder how many Americans actually agree with this view of Canada.

    Amazing. Tucker Carlson has simply reinforced the fact that he has no credibility. I most certainly don't agree with him.

    Thanks for the link.

    Hope all is well with you,

    He used to be a one of the right-leaning hosts on the CNN political talk show Crossfire which always has a politically right and a politically leftist host. I believe he now has his own show on MSNBC. He is also known for his distinctive bow ties.

    I'm horrified by his comments, but he is an entertainer, albeit a very bad one. He has a right to say it, and we have a right to think he's nuts.

    Carlson is actually more libertarian than conservative. I would call him a right leaning libertarian (Kinda like me! [​IMG] ) I like Carlson and think his new show on MSNBC is much better than the outdated and cancelled "Crossfire" on CNN.

    I think this time like all people do at time to time, he stuck his foot in his mouth.

    He has a history of these types of comments about Canada.

    Hi Goldragon, I was not aware of that. I do know the part of the program he debates Max Kellerman is kinda off the cuff part of the program. I do think regardless such comments are way insulting and out of bounds.
