Yes he is...and he's still very very angry with Jon Stewart. It only took him about five years to say so. Movin' on...
ain't it funny how many sources report that Tucker finds Stewart "partisan":?
this is news because Tucker himself is so fair and impartial?

I have to force myself to remember that he kicked open the door for Rachel Maddow with the suits at MSNBC. It was a class act from a guy who's not nearly as classy as he thinks he is.
I don't put Jon Stewart above criticism, and I would entertain a coherent case. Unfortunately, Little *ucker didn't make a case, he just threw out nasty names, making himself look like a WATB.

That's all you have, Tucker? Jon Stewart is a partisan hack. Stick a fork in Tucker, he's done. You think Jon might have some fun with this?

He's still around and looks like he's getting rounder!

Tucker stopped wearing those dorky bow ties right after Jon Stewart made fun of them. Maybe that's what Tucker is still smarting about.

Tucker's just upset that a comedian was doing more investigative journalism than do most news networks today and thus beat everyone to the punch. Exposing the "experts" of CNBC for the bunch of corporate shills and hypocritical frauds they are - what a concept. One of Stewart's best moments came was after the many rolls of video he said "I want the Cramer of today to protect me from the Cramer in that video". Tucker wants someone to have "stones" and I have to say that Cramer, being exposed for what he was, actually had the stones to graciously sit through an incisive, fact-based analysis of how he and his network fucked up. It's the incisive, fact-based analysis stuff that's really got Tucker's panties in a twist.

"It's the incisive, fact-based analysis stuff that's really got Tucker's panties in a twist."
Exactly BKLN; you nailed it. Authoritarians like Tucker hate anyone who shows ordinary people the ability of fact-based analysis and critical thinking to penetrate the obfuscations and outright lies of the self-serving elite.

You know, it's strange. Tucker's calling Stewart a "partisan demogogue," when he was the Republican operative for years (deny it though he may).
His father ran the Scooter Libby Defense Fund. In the larger sense, it shouldn't matter what Dad was doing, but to help out the family business, Carlson spun everything to highlight the poor, unjustly-targetted Scooter's trials and travails (it was enough to bring a tear to your eye).
Not that I'm saying there's anything wrong with partisan demagoguery (is that spelled right?), but you know, pot, kettle, that kind of thing...

I look forward to Stewart's smack down of Tucker. After all he asked for it I think.

Tucker's network fucked up???? When something is done on purpose its not a fuck up! CNBC has been a shill for the greedy of Wall Street and corporate America for years. The network was created for this purpose! Pump and dump is their creed! Volatility is their purpose!
