    Ok, not shocked... but the whole article as they go through the crap he posted is disgusting. I’m sure he was right at home on Tucker’s show.

    Tucker Carlson's top writer quits after secretly posting racist and sexist remarks in online forum - CNN

    New York (CNN Business) - The top writer for Fox News host Tucker Carlson has for years been using a pseudonym to post bigoted remarks on an online forum that is a hotbed for racist, sexist, and other offensive content, CNN Business learned this week.

    Just this week, the writer, Blake Neff, responded to a thread started by another user in 2018 with the subject line, "Would u let a JET BLACK congo n****er do lasik eye surgery on u for 50% off?" Neff wrote, "I wouldn't get LASIK from an Asian for free, so no." (The subject line was not censored on the forum.) On June 5, Neff wrote, "Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down." On June 24, Neff commented, "Honestly given how tired black people always claim to be, maybe the real crisis is their lack of sleep." On June 26, Neff wrote that the only people who care about changing the name of the NFL's Washington Redskins are "white libs and their university-'educated' pets."

    Neff is an odious fellow who could probably do with getting laid. It might improve his mood. I bet ole Tucker had no idea Neff was so odious and is shocked to learn of his racist and sexist, etc., etc. views.

    Hell, Tucker probably belongs to the same board and probably repped Neff's posts, or he would have.

    Not directed at you Trickster, but this type of stuff is not a one-off for anyone caring to look.

    Don’t want to downplay the seriousness of this / get off topic, but how excited do you think the CNN reporter that broke this story was?

    That’s got to get you a raise...

    I refuse to believe a man of morals and high integrity and principles like Tucker Carlson would associate with someone racist. Absolutely do not believe it.

    At this point, CNN probably has a bounty program for outing Fox News racists.

    I'm sure Tucker will have no problem finding another racist, sexist to write his dog whistle scripts.

    That would bankrupt CNN.

    I wonder what his pseudonym is here at THFSG.

    Each of those networks jab the other. But one tends to have a bit more ammo.
    Right now CNN has its story about Tucker Carlson's racist, sexist writer quitting.
    Fox has a story about a rightwing pastor criticizing something Don Lemon said.

    Not a chance, the DNC is loaded and if they fall for another phishing attempt and lose all their money, Zucker can always get a “low interest loan” from Georgie Soros.
