I had a previous post tagged with Oliver Darcy. Last time I ran into him he was seemingly concerned President Trump was going to destroy the world because of an ongoing issue with North Korea. This story (CNN, archive) though, has Mr. Darcy (the man no one wants anymore) claiming that Coronavirus is worse than expected using Mr. Carlson.
Let's just use Mr. Oliver's words:
While some of his colleagues have downplayed coronavirus fears, Tucker Carlson over the last few weeks has taken a much different approach.
"People you trust, people you probably voted for, have spent weeks minimizing what is clearly a very serious problem," Carlson said. "'It's just partisan politics,' they say. 'Calm down. In the end this was just like the flu and people die from that every year. Coronavirus will pass."
Then 2 random paragraphs, then this:
>> Of note: While Carlson has taken coronavirus seriously, he also asked a guest about the conspiracy theory that the virus was created in a Chinese lab. And it's impossible to ignore the racial overtones in his coverage...
What? No, seriously, what? My quick guess is that it wasn't meant to be here. It was a comment that got published accidentally. But, either way it shows the thinking of Mr. Darcy. He sees racism. It doesn't matter the rest of the story, Mr. Darcy perceives racism. In the future, I'll remember that for his stories.
