Tucker, You Douchebag

When I came home from work last night, my roommate was inexplicably watching Tucker Carlson's show on MSNBC. As I sat down to have a snack, Tucker announced:
We're starting a new segment today, called "Beat the Press." We're going to analyze how news outlets cover the media.

"Beat" it, indeed.

This is truly a House of Mirrors. Tucker is watching the media watch the press. You are watching Tucker watch the media watch the press. I am commenting on you watching Tucker watch the media watch the press. Each level smaller and a little more distorted. I feel nauseous.

I hope no one comments on this post.

i couldn't resist commenting to add another mirror to the house. The daily show has used the title of "beat the press" for a few segments. Tucker just wants be like jon.

Please, join the circle jerk. There's room for everyone.

The segment was trying so hard to be a daily show segment, with the perfectly legitimate making fun of the Fox News Alert ridiculousness. The only problem: Tucker and his writers don't actually have a sense of humor.
