    Tucker Carlson should be paid the same as Bill O’Rielly or close to it. He’s the very best. I have gotten to where I watch him only. I use to watch 24/7 FOX. He’s the best and the way he interviews is fascinating. Love Tucker.

    I think Tucker is Absolutely brilliant. I think he is the perfect example of Conservatism. The BEST thing that could have possibly happened for him was CNN canceling his contract. The “anchors” at CNN: Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Humpty Dumpty, etc., wish they were half as intelligent, half as smart, half as brilliant, and half as handsome as Tucker, On His Worst day!!! He is a TRUE JOURNALIST: Fair, Honest, Trustworthy, Investigative, and Curious. Tucker Carlson is, by far, the best FOX NEWS journalist/commentary; FOX better hold on to him!!! I’m with Joyce Welford, I, too, love Tucker Carlson.
