Heritage Foundation Responds To ‘Outrageous’ And ‘Unfounded’ Attacks From Tucker Carlson

Published

on

Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on a tirade against conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation during his program on Friday evening, claiming the group and similar organizations “colluded with big tech to shield left-wing monopolies from any oversight.”

Carlson himself used to work at the Heritage Foundation and said during his show that, “Heritage no longer represents the interests of conservatives, at least on the question of tech.”

According to The Hill, the Fox News host also criticized a policy paper by the organization, which he claimed “defends the special privileges that Congress has given to left-wing Silicon Valley monopolies.”

The Heritage Foundation wasted no time in responding to Carlson. Its vice president of communications, Rob Bluey, responded with a lengthy statement that blasted the television host for engaging in “ad hominem attacks.”

Unfortunately, Carlson did not contact us in advance of his segment or provide Heritage with an opportunity to respond to his accusations. Rather than engage in a substantive policy debate, he chose instead to make ad hominem attacks and question our integrity. We are disappointed this came from someone whom we admire and respect.

The Heritage Foundation will not let these attacks go unanswered and we welcome the opportunity to have a substantive debate on public policy.

Carlson’s claims began with an attack on a recent Heritage report about Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. He claimed the report’s author repeated lines verbatim from a trade association. This is false. In fact, the 13-page Heritage report contained 22 footnotes, all of which were properly quoted and attributed to sources. The report went through a thorough and lengthy process of vetting and review by Heritage scholars to ensure accuracy and agreement among all Heritage analysts involved in technology and social media policy.

The conclusions of Heritage’s report were based on the principles that guide all of our policy recommendations—principles Carlson seems curiously less interested in defending. Instead, he made an unfounded assertion against Heritage and outrageous smear of one of our scholars. It is disappointing that Carlson would deceive his viewers with such patently false information.

The statement concluded by saying, “We won’t be intimidated or bullied as we continue to represent the interests of conservatives and all Americans.”

Who’s wrong? Who’s right?

The bottom line here is that when conservatives attack each other, the left wins. These two powerhouses need to get together and figure out what’s really going on and let the facts speak for themselves.

Save conservative media!

President Trump Says COVID-19 Vaccine Deliveries To Begin Next Week

Published

on

President Donald Trump stated on Thursday evening that COVID-19 vaccine deliveries would begin early next week. “The whole world is suffering and we are rounding the curve,” the president said. “And the vaccines are being delivered next week or the week after.” Via Fox News: The announcement came during a special Thanksgiving holiday message to U.S. troops overseas via teleconference. Trump noted that front-line workers, medical personnel and senior citizens would be the vaccine’s first recipients. He also argued that his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden, should not be given credit for the vaccines, which he referred to as a “medical miracle” before repeating claims of voting irregularities in the 2020 election. “Joe Biden failed with the swine flu, H1N1, totally failed with the swine flu,” Trump said. “Don’t let him take credit for the vaccines because the vaccines were me and I pushed people harder than they’ve ever been pushed before and we got that approved and through and nobody’s ever seen anything like it.” The comments made by the president come days ahead of a meeting due to take place on December 10, where regulators with the Food and Drug Administration will take a look at Pfizer’s request for an emergency use authorization for the coronavirus vaccine that it has developed along with BioNTech. The latest data to come out of test trials for this particular vaccine, which was revealed earlier in the month, has it being at least 90 percent effective. Moderna is also working on a vaccine and the company stated that their product is 94.5 percent effective in preventing coronavirus infections. Folks, whether you plan on taking the vaccine or not, the good news is that President Trump promised he would have one by the end of the year and he has delivered. Unfortunately, there’s no doubt leftist media…

Single Mom Defies Minnesota State Order, Plans To Open Bar On Friday

Located in a tiny town in the state of Minnesota, a single mother and owner of a small bar that helps provide her fellow residents with entertainment is planning to open up her business on Friday in total defiance of the tyrannical state order that closes all bars and restaurants indefinitely due to the spread of the coronavirus. The woman has already stated that she is willing to pay any fine and even possibly face jail time for her actions. Folks, this is what a bold patriot looks like. via Daily Wire: Larvita McFarquhar owns Havens Garden in Lynd, Minnesota, a town of 448 people. On November 19, she posted a video on Facebook which was captioned, “Live Music and Food next Friday Night! Come have fun with the Great Tommy Rex or sing your own tunes during Open Mic! November 27 2020, 9pm-11pm Lynd MN.” The video features her saying, “Hi! I’m here at Havens Garden asking everyone to join us November 27 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. for Open Mic Night. Come down and have a good time here at Havens Garden in Lynd, Minnesota.” As John Hinderaker of Powerline reports, that announcement prompted the state to threaten her. Alpha News reported that after she posted the video, a deputy with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office asked McFarquhar if she was aware that Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) had issued a new order forcing all bars and restaurants to be closed and warned her of the consequences if she defied the order. McFarquhar told Alpha News, “I said, ‘Yes, I’m aware, but are you aware that the governor’s mandate is not a law? The governor does not pass laws and you are supposed to uphold the Constitution. You don’t work for the governor; you work for us.’”…
