Seth MacFarlane Takes A Swing At Fox News While Unveiling His ‘Family Guy’ Covid-Vaccine PSA

“You’ve finally done something good, Seth MacFarlane,” Jimmy Kimmel declared. “You’ve finally done something for society.” Kimmel couldn’t help himself while hosting Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane as he prepared to unveil a Covid-vaccine PSA for the long-running show (20 years at this point). Yet this PSA is a logical step for MacFarlane, who’s pushed […]

Tucker Carlson Thinks Military Vaccine Mandates Are A Satanism-Inspired Plot To Target Christians And ‘Men With High Testosterone Levels’

With no new developments being reported about Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s swollen balls, Tucker Carlson had to go back to talking about his other favorite topic on Monday night: those pesky vaccine mandates. This time, his target was the U.S. military. Several weeks ago, the Biden administration announced that it would be requiring all U.S. […]

How Tucker Carlson Lost It

Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson was born in San Francisco in 1969. He was the older of two sons.

Tucker Carlson Cannot Stop Talking About Nicki Minaj’s Cousin’s Friend’s Swollen Testicles

Tucker Carlson has got swollen testicles on the brain. No, it’s not a neurological condition; but ever since Nicki Minaj tweeted about her mysterious “cousin’s friend” whose ball sack reportedly did not like whatever was in the COVID vaccine, Carlson can’t stop talking about this poor man’s scrotum. His testicular fixation began on Monday night […]

Tucker Carlson Is Suddenly Nicki Minaj’s Biggest Fan After She Claimed Her Cousin’s Friend’s ‘Testicles Became Swollen’ After Being Vaccinated

Tucker Carlson is suddenly Nicki Minaj’s biggest fan—and all, appropriately, because of a pair of swollen testicles. On Monday, the “Bang Bang” singer posted a rather personal, and somewhat revolting, detail about her cousin’s friend who, if he exists at all, presumably was not consulted about having the status of his inflated and inoperable junk […]

Tucker Carlson Swears That He Doesn’t Lie, But He Will ‘If I’m Really Cornered Or Something’

Tucker Carlson has downplayed the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, and he’s claimed the FBI orchestrated it. He’s claimed masks aren’t important and told his viewers to harass those who wear them. He’s hatched bizarre conspiracy theories, including one about the U.S.’s exit from Afghanistan. The most charitable thing you could say about the Fox News […]

‘Even Fox News’ Is Trending After Biden Pointed Out That ‘Even Fox News’ Requires Its Employees To Be Vaccinated

President Biden announced on Thursday a sweeping new vaccine mandate that will impact more than 80 million Americans. And while outrage from anti-vaxxers is sure to follow, the biggest thing many took away from the announcement is that Fox News is already enforcing a similar rule that the Democratic president announced in a national address.

Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade filled in for Tucker Carlson on the COVID beat, and wow, he really went all in with Clay Travis. The segment certainly wasn’t (and this is saying something) too out of the norm for Tucker’s audience (who’s accustomed to his COVID cartoon villainy). Yet to celebrate, Kilmeade hosted Fox […]

Seth MacFarlane Is Pointing Out How Tucker Carlson Is Allowed To Spread Dangerous Misinformation, But Peter Griffin Can’t Cuss

Jim Acosta’s Saturday programming on CNN has routinely taken aim at Fox News and its biggest name, Tucker Carlson.

Trump Bungled An ISIS Offshoot Name And Then Dug In His Heels And Made It Worse, And The Jokes Poured In

Donald Trump Jr. appears to believe that his dad could swoop in like Batman and save Afghanistan from the Taliban, but the reality of the situation is, of course, far from that claim.

America’s Worst Right-Wingers: A TNR Readers’ Poll

Forty years ago, when the right wing was first ascendant in this country, the nation was introduced to some exotic characters the likes of which most of us hadn’t seen before: Jerry Falwell Sr.; Pat Robertson; Newt Gingrich; even people like Illinois Representative Henry Hyde, who at the time seemed about as ideologically extreme as […]

‘The New York Post’ Is Requiring Its Employees ‘Mask Up’ After Spending Much Of The Pandemic Ripping Mask Mandates, Because Of Course They Are

Like most conservative Rupert Murdoch-owned media outlets, The New York Post has spent much of the pandemic railing against mask mandates and generally downplaying COVID’s severity. But like former president Trump, they’re not stupid. So this shouldn’t be surprising: Despite their hostility towards places of business requiring people wear masks, that’s exactly what they demand […]

‘Gutfeld!’ Is Now The Most-Watched Late-Night Show On TV

Sean Hannity Is Back To Trashing The COVID Vaccines, Which He Falsely Claims: ‘Science Shows… It’s Not Protecting Many People’

Just one month after publicly declaring “I believe in science” and “I believe in the science of vaccination,” Sean Hannity seems to be changing his tune—or at least altering the lyrics. On Wednesday night, the Fox News host invited Ron DeSantis on his show to discuss the measures the Florida governor is taking to protect […]

Fox News’ Reported New Vaccine-Involved Mandate Sounds Awfully Awkward For Tucker Carlson

Fox News’ stance on vaccines has been (and this is putting it generously) mixed. Take, for example, the Fox and Friends co-hosts (Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade), who sat down in May to let everyone know that they’d all been vaccinated against COVID-19. That hasn’t stopped Kilmeade from grumbling about the idea of […]

‘Fox And Friends’ Host Brian Kilmeade’s Casual Remarks About Knock-Off Vaccine Cards Are Inspiring Plenty Of Disgust

Back in May, the Fox and Friends co-hosts (Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade) all made sure to let their audience know (while apparently distancing themselves from Tucker Carlson) that they’d all been vaccinated against COVID-19. Since that day, however, Kilmeade’s been rather grumbly about the idea of virus-related mandates, and that’s not resting […]

‘Bar Rescue’ Host Jon Taffer Is Under Fire For Comparing Restaurant Workers To Dogs And Criticizing Unemployment Benefits On Fox News

Jon Taffer’s tough style is sort of the point of Bar Rescue, but his comments on the actual food and beverage industry outside of reality television got him into hot water this week.

‘The Daily Show’ Nailed ‘Jeopardy GOAT’ Tucker Carlson To The Wall With A Series Of Relevant Questions

The new Jeopardy! host is, uh, not Fox News host and conspiracy-theorist extraordinaire Tucker Carlson. Whew!

Fox News Host Dan Bongino Apologized For Fox News Editing His Trump Interview To Cut Out Some Of The Batsh*t Lies Trump Spewed In It

Fox News host Dan Bongino was so hurt over some of the “unbelievable” comments criticizing his latest interview with Donald Trump that the TV personality is now turning on his own network to appeal to his fans.

Seth MacFarlane Is So Disgusted With Tucker Carlson That He Wants To Take ‘Family Guy’ To Another Network

Family Guy premiered on Fox last century, on January 31, 1999. It’s been a primetime fixture ever since (minus a brief cancelation following season two… and again after season three).

Geraldo Rivera’s been on quite a pro-vaccine tear lately as the Delta variant heats up, and fellow Fox News talking head Tucker Carlson continues to spread anti-vaxxer misinformation.

‘Fox And Friends’ Sounded The Alarm On Weed And Violent Crime (What?) While Delta Variant Cases Rise

The Fox and Friends gang decided to be responsible last week (well, two of the co-hosts did) while urging people to get vaccinated, but maybe it’s time for Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade to get back-to-basics, so to speak by dropping misinformation about weed and generally claiming that it’s going to be the slippery slope […]
