Zurawik’s column is too anti-conservative | READER COMMENTARY

Fox News host Tucker Carlson discusses "Populism and the Right" during the National Review Institute's Ideas Summit at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel March 29, 2019 in Washington, DC.

In a Sun commentary article, David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun calls Tucker Carlson “the sneering face of white privilege” (”Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity almost make me pine for the era of Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly,” July 15). Mr. Zurawik sees Fox News as a threat to our democracy. Fox is the only conservative leaning television network. There are many more liberal leaning networks. Mr. Zurawik should consider moving to China, where only one view is allowed.

Tucker Carlson, on the other hand, has a good head on his shoulders. He is well educated and is an intellect. Remember intellects, like the founding fathers? Most important, he is unique in that he can think for himself. Sometimes he criticizes President Trump for months at a time. Sometimes he supports him. Many times, I disagree with Mr. Carlson, but I tend to agree with him more times than not. David Zurawik is a hook, line and sinker non-inclusive liberal who is anti-conservative and anti-moderate. He is so obsessed with contempt for all things conservative (including all normal people) that I believe his brain is eaten to a honeycomb with hate. I think he needs a sabbatical to take a month-long hike in the mountains to take-in and absorb the wonder and goodness of God’s creation.
