First: This is pretty funny. Second: Even Fox News takes the position that the New York Times reports facts. >Fox News’ attorney Erin Murphy argued that Carlson repeatedly couched his statements as hypotheticals to promote conversation and that a reasonable viewer would know his show offers “provocative things that will help me think harder,” as opposed to straight news. > >”What we’re talking about here, it’s not the front page of The New York Times,” said Murphy. “It’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, which is a commentary show.”
