Tucker Carlson Preparing To Launch HuffPo Competitor TheDailyCaller.com

Posted May 30, 2009

Conservative media personality Tucker Carlson is very well known for being called out by Jon Stewart on former CNN show Crossfire.  Carlson is now planning to launch a news website that competes directly to The Huffington Post.  Carlson plans to launch a website called TheDailyCaller.com, but more from a conservative news angle.

Carlson claims that his website will focus on ?telling the truth and be accurate.?  The journalists on TheDailyCaller.com will share in the profits.  The motto of TheDailyCaller is “every seven minutes” because Carlson claims that breaking news will happen a lot faster than The Huffington Post and The Drudge Report.

Personally I’m not much of a fan of Tucker Carlson because of the attitude he had during the program below. I’m a big fan of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. I believe that maintaining humor in the serious world of politics is a great mix to have. Questioning Comedy Central’s credibility as a defensive strategy did not seem to give Carlson much merit. And in terms of being able to compete with The Drudge Report, I think that may be a joke because Drudge is already very established and has a massive audience.
