Tucker Carlson Is The New King of Cable News

I know there are lots of people who dislike Tucker Carlson.

Regardless of how you feel about Carlson, he has displaced Sean Hannity and has the most popular television show on cable news in the post-Trump era. This is an interesting development.


“New York (CNN Business) – Sean Hannity finds himself in familiar territory as of late: second place.

For most of his career, the right-wing Fox propagandist has been in the shadows of someone else.

When Bill O’Reilly was still at Fox News, Hannity could never quite catch him in the ratings race.

But shortly after the 2016 election, Hannity’s close relationship with then-President Donald Trump, coupled with O’Reilly’s ouster at Fox, propelled Hannity to the throne of conservative media. And for a few years, he sat there comfortably.

Hannity hasn’t been able to hold onto the crown, though. Recent ratings numbers and other data show that his influence has been surpassed by one of his colleagues: Tucker Carlson. …

Sheffield agreed, pointing out that Carlson “came to television a lot later than Hannity in his career” and is not as willing to carry the Republican Party’s water. Instead, he resembles a newer version of the conservative commentator that takes after the alt-right rather than Reagan conservatism.

Sheffield argued that Carlson believes he’s the figurehead of that form of conservatism.

“He sees himself as leading a movement,” Sheffield said, adding: “Tucker has realized that the whole market, fundamentalism of the Reagan years, that doesn’t work anymore.” …”

I’ve been tracking two other recent developments which are related to this.

First, there has been a big swing in public opinion polls since we entered the post-George Floyd and post-Trump era. There has been a change in mood among the normies. Previously, normies were notoriously complacent, but now they are anxious. Joe Six Pack was anxious enough to storm the Capitol. Normies have recently become more like us across a range of issues including White identity.

Second, we are seeing this shift in mood and tone reflected both on Tucker Carlson’s show and in conservative media in general. The best example of this is how Carlson raised the issue of demographic displacement and stood up to Jonathan Greenblatt and even brought OUR GREATEST ALLY into it. The sudden interest in wokeness is another example of it. The use of the term “anti-white” is another example of it. The feud between the GOP and Corporate America is getting serious and isn’t a joke. The fact that the politicians are being reprogrammed is another example of it.
