BREAKING: Tucker Carlson Goes NUCLEAR – Trump Is…

1726

Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson went nuclear on CNN and host Wolf Blitzer for not asking the NBA commissioner about China.

On Friday, Carlson said, “Yesterday, CNN aired a 16-minute interview with the Commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver. In cable news time, that’s eternity and they needed it because there’s a lot to discuss with Silver, not least the NBA’s long and very close relationship with the communist government of China, the government that’s sending minorities to reeducation camps, and facilitating slave labor.”

The NBA has been very active in pushing the cause of social justice in the United States while seemingly ignoring the horrific human rights abuses in China.

Carlson continued saying, “Wow. How do powerful people get a pass from the media? Simple. By being woke. The NBA painted Black Lives Matter on its courts. It allows its players to kneel for the National Anthem, giving the finger to the country that made this sport possible.”

The NBA is very willing to push social justice in the U.S. but when their profits are threatened in the lucrative Chinese market they fall in line.

CNN and the mainstream media are turning a blind eye to the blatant hypocrisy of the NBA. Their treatment of the NBA is another reason why no Americans should listen to them.

Friday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson slammed CNN and host Wolf Blitzer for failing to mention China in a 16-minute-long interview with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host attributed the omission to the NBA’s pursuit of being “woke.”

Partial transcript as follows:

CARLSON: Yesterday, CNN aired a 16-minute interview with the Commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver. In cable news time, that’s eternity and they needed it because there’s a lot to discuss with Silver, not least the NBA’s long and very close relationship with the communist government of China, the government that’s sending minorities to reeducation camps, and facilitating slave labor.

But those questions never got asked. Instead, a cascade of softballs. Watch.

WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Commissioner, I assume you would cancel the NBA season, Adam, if that was the right — that would be the right thing to do if it involved the player’s health and safety and other personnel, coaches, et cetera. You would just end the season, right?

What will it be like watching these games on TV to the cause of racial justice in our country?

How do you see the NBA’s role and your role as Commissioner when it comes to supporting those players?

How do you think whoever wins the NBA title should be remembered?

CARLSON: Wow. How to powerful people get a pass from the media? Simple. By being woke. The NBA painted Black Lives Matter on its courts. It allows its players to kneel for the National Anthem giving the finger to the country that made this sport possible.
