Brave 23-year-old leftist gets PAID to watch Tucker Carlson and the media wants you to know about her bravery
We've got another riveting news story from one of America's heroic journalists: what it's like to watch Tucker Carlson every night. Yes, that's right. A researcher at Media Matters gets paid to watch Tucker dunk on the lefties. What would we do without this insightful and thought-provoking research?
The researcher in question is 23-year-old Kat Abughazaleh, a senior video producer at Media Matters. Her social media bios read, "I watch Tucker Carlson so you don't have to." So brave.
Kat said she thinks Carlson has "floundered" since the midterms, and is "not really sure what direction to take it." Other Media Matters employees who also watch Tucker Carlson for a living (yes, there are more) agreed. Their reasoning was, "he's pro-smoking all of a sudden." A truly stunning flip-flop.

Another piece of evidence of Tucker's apparent floundering is that he's funny. Or in New Yorker's words, "even serious topics often come with a gimmick attached." Like when he captioned the bizarre photo of Jill Biden kissing Kamala Harris's husband, "Wife Swap." How dare he joke over an extremely serious lover's quarrel between the President's wife and Vice President's husband?
Abughazaleh also noted when Carlson said the FBI is joining the hunt for Christians: "I was so excited to hear that hilarious Christian line—it was so good." She immediately posted the clip on Twitter.

Tucker was referencing the rescinded internal FBI memo that declared "radical-traditionalist Catholics" who prefer attending Latin Mass "extremists." But don't worry: according to Media Matters, we have nothing to worry about. Tucker's just being a crazy conspiracy theorist again. Pay no attention to the FBI targeting Americans based on their religious beliefs.
I still can't get over the fact that Media Matters has people on payroll literally to just sit and watch Tucker Carlson. But maybe I'm just jealous. It sounds like a pretty good gig to me.
