The people over at Media Matters are calling them the “Fox News Leaks” after they received “leaked” video from insiders at the cable news network. The videos were supposed to tarnish the powerhouse host, but instead, they made him even more human.
In one clip, Carlson was joking with Piers Morgan off-camera before their interview started.
“If we’re going to talk about sex, I’d love to hit some of the fine points of technique, but, you know, but it’s your show. It’s totally up to you,” Carlson tells Morgan.
Morgan responds, “We can certainly talk about your sexual technique, especially after your tanning testicles last week,” a reference to Carlson’s endorsement of that practice in his End of Men Fox Nation special as a way to reduce the purported decline in testosterone levels.
“Not mine,” Carlson replies, adding, “We’ll speak in more general terms, but I’ve got something to add.”
The banter continued with other staff members who were all joking around.
“You wouldn’t. Okay? I’m not, you know what, I’m not qualified on that score. I will say, I thought his girlfriend was kind of yummy,” Carlson added.
He continued and said straight to the camera “just kidding, in case this is being pulled off the bird,” a slang term for a communications satellite. He continues, “Hey, Media Matters for America, go f**k yourself,” adding, “I don’t even know what his girlfriend looks like. And if I did, I would not find her yummy.”
In another video leaked to Media Matters by the from the “conservative news network” Tucker was joking with one of his staffers fixing his hair and jokingly referenced an infamous Billy O’Reilly behind the scene clip.
“F**k it, we’ll do it live!” Carlson shouted and both he and the woman laughed.
The leak meant to discredit Carlson completely backfired and many said it made him even more charming.
Every one of these leaked videos I’ve seen presented as horrifying and creepy is actually charming and funny lol https://t.co/sjHWQTOAMm

The left was hoping these videos would hurt Tucker, but instead it completely backfired.
apparently everyone understands nonsense banter between segments except for hall monitor failures bitterly chronicling the lives of the far more successful https://t.co/HkwFTgIub6

In contrast, how many of you remember the MSNBC Lawerance O’Donnell meltdown?
In 2017, a video was leaked of O’Donnell yelling obscenities at staff members for almost eight minutes. The network fired the editor that leaked the video, and O’Donnell got a free pass.
