Tucker Carlson dominated the cable news ratings last week, only days before Media Matters For America would release a slew of audio recordings in which Carlson made politically incorrect jokes in an attempt to get him fired from Fox News.
Since the premiere of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in 2016, Carlson’s nightly news program has steadily climbed in the ratings, usually coming in second or third place when compared to call cable news, and typically coming in first place during the 8 p.m. time slot.
However, Carlson smashed every other cable news program last Friday, including fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Carlson had nearly 2.7 million viewers on Friday night, coming in slightly ahead of Hannity’s viewership, and smashing his 8 p.m. competition on MSNBC and CNN by nearly 1 and 2 million viewers respectively.

Only days after demolishing all competition in cable news, Media Matters would release a series of ancient video recordings of Carlson making politically incorrect jokes on a comedy radio show.
A Soros-linked media group sought to launch a character assassination smear against Fox News host Tucker Carlson over the weekend, seeking to get the ratings kingpin fired from the cable news channel and ostracized from “polite” society over recordings of a few backroom jokes with some radio show hosts around a decade ago.
The old audio from a decade ago surfaced from a Media Matters operative, a progressive group funded by George Soros.
Operatives from the organization had hoped that Carlson would profusely apologize, back down, and retire from public life, thus silencing a leading critic of the progressive left’s push for total political, social and cultural control over American life.
Carlson shows no sign of backing down or apologizing to the left wing mob, and Big League Politics journalists are watching Fox News’s actions closely to monitor whether they will stand with the America First newsman, or buckle to the radical leftists.

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
