It’s a gut punch for Tucker Carlson and his fans.
Blake Neff, one of the writers of the Tucker Carlson show, just resigned from his post at Fox News after racist and sexist comments he posted online were revealed.
The comments that Neff made were truly reprehensible, once again illustrating that the internet brings out the worst in people, especially when they feel they’re anonymous. This isn’t a case of overreaction against an innocent comment – the comments were truly awful.
Of course, Carlson’s enemies will make the most of Neff’s secret posts. They’re deathly afraid of Carlson because he’s able to articulate the problems with cancel culture better than anyone else on TV today.
But Neff isn’t Carlson, and he’s paying for his idiocy. The real question is whether others in media will be subjected to the same scrutiny. For instance, will Joy Reid, a new star anchor at MSNBC, ever be held accountable for her homophobic posts? It wasn’t her writer – it was her.
The answer, of course, is no. The left will never have to meet the same standards as the right.
