Last week Fox News host Tucker Carlson found himself under attack by one of his guests. U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz made a number of wild assertions regarding Carlson’s behavior in an attempt to involve or “rope him” into one of his own developing scandals.
Gaetz started out with “I’m not the only person on screen right now who has been falsely accused of a terrible sex act. You were accused of something that you did not do, and so you know what this feels like.” Carlson replied “You just referred to a mentally ill viewer who accused me of a sex crime 20 years ago, and of course it was not true. I had never met the person, but I do agree with you that being accused falsely is one of the worst things that can happen, and you do see it a lot.” Then Gaetz stated “I can say actually you and I went to dinner about two years ago. Your wife was there, and I brought a friend of mine, you’ll remember her.” (Gaetz was inferring that Carlson knew the 17 year old female around which trafficking charges may revolve. Carlson denied any knowledge of the person or incident “I don’t remember the woman you are speaking of or the context at all, honestly,” Later Carlson described this cable interview as one of the weirdest he’s ever conducted.
Yes, it is weird when guests accuse hosts without outright lies. A recent opinion piece on CNN reminds us that more than 30,000 falsehoods has been told by previous President Donald Trump in his four year term. His most outrageous fib was The Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. Trump inadvertently let the cat out of the bag in 2018 when he warned his supporters “Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening.” This may very well the unspoken policy of The Fox News Channel.
“Fox TV was conceived
by founder Roger Ailes in 1996
as a political tool, rather than a
journalistic entity. It has operated
that way since, but it was more a
forum for conservative ideas and
promoter of GOP agendas than
the place where political leadership
of the right was determined. It is now
the backroom where right-wing
careers are made and unmade,
and leadership of the party is
determined. No media outlet with
the word “news” in its title should
play such a political role.” ~
media critic David Zurawik.
As strongly as Tucker Carlson may protest, right now he is in the center of this nasty political game. Politifact lists a just a smattering of his deliberate on-air fabrications. Shepard Smith was referring specifically to Carlson and his Fox associates when he said “I don’t know how some people sleep at night,” in his PBS interview with Christiane Amanpour. Smith continued “I know that there are a lot of people who have propagated the lies and have pushed them forward over and over again, who are smart enough and educated enough to know better.”
#62 FRI TAU
#62 FRI TAU
Tucker Carlson was born on a Friday in the zodiac sign of Taurus. Venus is the ruler of his INNER and OUTER Selves. The #62 FRI TAU Dayology signature creates individuals with desirous and firm characters. Politically Carlson has been labeled a paleoconservative, which describes his attraction to protectionism and his occasional insensitive or out-of-touch remarks.
Matthew Gaetz was born on a Friday in the zodiac sign of Taurus. Venus is the ruler of his INNER and OUTER Selves. As stated above the #62 FRI TAU Dayology is traditional and materialistic. Once committed by marriage or business contracts, these folks create the impression of stability. Still nothing prevents them from attempting to satisfying their strongly held desires.
As members of the Republican party and Trumpian cheerleaders, Carlson and Gaetz are fairly rigid. Their party loyalty is not to be questioned. They both claim that their personal standards are conservative, moral and perhaps even righteous. Each takes extreme stands against other people and causes, when they don’t care to or cannot understand the issues involved.
Yes, these two men have the same #62 FRI TAU Dayology Signature, meaning that they approach life in a similar manner. They may be on very different paths but their goals are not so different. Tucker Carlson is a journalist and Matt Gaetz is a politician. Both are struggling to be rewarded as ultra-powerful individuals and to enjoy the exquisite pleasures of life. Both are making huge mistakes as they move into areas which require exceptional awareness and responsibility.
It might be thought that people with the same signature would sense this similarity in their natures and it happens. It is true that people whose personalities are composed of the same planetary energies are attracted to one-another. They are intrigued with the life choices of these other people. They also enjoy the recognition and admiration from their fellow travelers.
Yes, meeting someone with the same signature is like looking in a mirror. And if what is seen in this reflection is good and worthy, it is a positive and fulfilling experience. However, if either or both individuals persist in immoral behaviors or law-breaking, the shared feeling is often one of strangeness, discomfort or even defensiveness, just as was witnessed in this encounter.
