Tucker: Even Some Liberals Are Growing Tired of Media's Trump-Russia 'Obsession'
Tucker Carlson on Wednesday said he agreed with liberal filmmaker Michael Moore's sentiment that coverage of Russia in the mainstream media is outweighing other issues that need to be seen and heard.
Moore said at a town hall with Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) that Russia coverage in certain capacities are "all the shiny keys to distract us. That's what goes on in the media."
"There are three different investigations going on. It deserves coverage, but there are degrees to everything," The Hill reporter Joe Concha said to Carlson Wednesday night.
Concha wrote in an article Tuesday that Moore, Sanders and Warren "lamented the lack of national media coverage around a recent teachers strike in West Virginia that resulted in a 5 percent pay increase."
Concha noted that coverage of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the probe into alleged collusion in the 2016 election and the region itself has been ongoing for more than a year, more specifically with larger news networks like CNN.
"As long as it's negative to the president, it seems like that's the direction that [CNN] and other media outlets will go in," he said. "Because they feel that they are giving comfort food to their audience, telling them what they want to hear instead of perhaps what they should hear," he said.
Carlson said he's constantly called out for devoting time on his show to other deserving stories that are not related to Trump and Russia.
