Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller Begins To Stuff Its Trayvon Coverage Into The Memory Hole

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Double plus ungoodThere’s no way of knowing whether it was Joe Scarborough’s public shaming of them (it was Joe Scarborough’s public shaming of them) but Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller has not only gone almost a whole day without smearing Trayvon Martin’s character or calling just about all black people “professional race baiters,” it’s also begun the painful and arduous task of walking back its horrifying coverage. Their latest story bears what must have been a galling headline to write: New Details Darken Outlook for Zimmerman’s Claim of Self-Defense. It is underneath a gigantic piece alleging some sort of ill-defined venality by Sen. Carl Levin for wanting to install electric car chargers at the Capitol. Obviously, you wouldn’t want a proper walk-back above the fold.

The very straight article, which obviously wasn’t written by star race-baiter Matthew Boyle as there’s no way he would have been able to keep the bile from pouring through his fat, sweaty fingers onto your screen, plods along, detailing “new information” and acting as though it were some other outlet that was doing “character vetting” on the 17-year-old Trayvon. Nowhere does it mention the hard-on the site has shown over the past weeks as it smeared a young dead boy with unabashed glee.

Both Martin and Zimmerman have faced a thorough character-vetting process as prominent activists and politicians ensure a continued national focus on the tragedy. Both men share rocky backgrounds, with Martin having been suspended from school on multiple occasions for various reasons and Zimmerman having previous run-ins with the law.

Martin’s disciplinary history showed no sign of physical aggression, though; a fact that offers Zimmerman’s claims of self-defense little support in the court of public opinion.

What little support Zimmerman has found publicly comes from a handful of close friends and family. Of those who aren’t strictly calling for his arrest and prosecution, many are urging a thorough investigation to assess whether Zimmerman rightly defended himself using Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law — or moved to shoot and kill Martin without a justifiable fear that his own life was in danger.

The Daily Caller has yet to note that Travyon Martin’s “rocky background” included fishing with his dad and preparing to take the SATs.

You're not fucking Winston Churchill, so stop acting like it you dweeb.

Winston Churchill was a class warrior and asshole that promulgated war and attempted to rally Brits fighting on the beaches, while he was busy diddling the air stewardess on his way to exile in Canada.

When Trayvon was first described as "a drug using juvenile delinquent" I thought, woah, that could have been me.

Santorum weighs in: "This is why you have to watch yourself around bl — blah people. Also, it's clear that Trayvon was a cowardly nig — negotiator."

Sue4466 March 30, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Love the false equivalency dance wherein Martin being suspended from school equals Zimmerman's "run ins with the law." Yes, getting suspended is exactly the same as getting arrested.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 30, 2012 at 5:39 pm

If we could just have school suspensions with the possibility of execution, none of this would have happened.

Sue4466 March 30, 2012 at 6:03 pm

Sure would streamline the process. Hippie libruls with their "but they jus kids" socialist bull crap.

Gainsbourg69 March 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Cons were so hoping to reveal young Trayvon as a thug that they demanded that they stop showing his baby pictures and start showing pictures of him wearing gold teeth. Unfortunately for them, Treyvon was a clean cut kid who was a wanabe bad boy.

Sue4466 March 30, 2012 at 8:12 pm

So bad they had to post a fake picture from Stormfront and the worst they could come up with was him supposedly flipping the bird to a webcam. Like who hasn't done that? And like that would making shooting him down okie dokie.

I get angry any time I think about what happened to that kid. And angrier when I hear dumbasses making it out like it wasn't that bad. He's dead. It doesn't get more bad than that. Poor child. And poor child's family.

Gainsbourg69 March 30, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Trayvon went to a high school not five minutes away from where I live. If they'd payed as much attention to him as they did to that Elizabeth Smart girl they'd know that he attended a school in a middle class neighborhood. There's just no way you can demonize this boy. He probably got better grades than that dumb fuck Cralson himself.

Negropolis March 30, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Treyvon was a clean cut kid who was a wanabe bad boy.

I wish this was made more a point of when people try to label him a "thug", which itself is a codeword. Trayvon is like half the kids I grew up with, white, black and otherwise. I had white classmates who used to brag up and down about selling weed, disrespect their parents and other adults to their faces, etc…but if a black classmate was in any kind of trouble, it was blown up. That's one of the things people need to know about modern racism. Modern racism is not empathizing with others who you don't feel a cultural connection too because of their race/color/etc…

Boojum March 31, 2012 at 1:32 am

In 2005, Zimmerman was arrested and charged with "resisting officer with violence" and "battery of law enforcement officer". The charges were reduced to "resisting officer without violence" In the same year (2005), Zimmerman's ex-fiance, Veronica Zuazo, filed a motion for a restraining order, alleging domestic violence.

Chet Kincaid March 31, 2012 at 7:21 pm

But you're missing the point! If a half-hispanic could skate on these charges, it's proof that we are a color-blind society!!

Gainsbourg69 March 31, 2012 at 8:34 pm

According to a poll I read recently, seventy three percent of Americans think Zimmerman should be arrested. The thugging of Treyvon Martin is not working as well as these fuckers were hoping it would.

gurukalehuru March 31, 2012 at 4:02 am

Actually, getting suspended is somewhat analogous to getting arrested.
Both happen frequently to violent, socially maladjusted people.
Both happen occasionally to good, even righteous people.

Zimmerman's arrests were for fighting with the cops and beating his woman. I don't think he falls into the righteous category.

Sue4466 March 31, 2012 at 8:56 am

If only analogy and equivalency meant the same thing.

Beowoof March 30, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Tucker is just a Storm Front wanna be.

mavenmaven March 30, 2012 at 5:32 pm

The comments on that article are pretty sickening. I read, like, the first five and I feel like I need to scrub off the outer layer of my skin. The best one is the one suggesting the funeral home examine the can of ice tea which must have been the attack weapon against poor Mr. Zimmerman, new hero of the Right. Haven't seen the word "libtard" there yet, but someone keeps writing "democrap".

"Both Martin and Zimmerman have faced a thorough character-vetting process as prominent activists and politicians ensure a continued national focus on the tragedy. Both men share rocky backgrounds, with Martin having been suspended from school on multiple occasions for various reasons and Zimmerman having previous run-ins with the law."

Yes, these two men are precisely equivalent in every way. Their backgrounds are almost identical. What possible scale can we use to divine a moral difference between them?

Well, let's see.

One was carrying a gun. The other was carrying candy.

One was driving around looking for trouble. The other was walking home.

One is walking around free. The other is dead.

Yeah, they're just the fucking same, aren't they, Tucker?

starfanglednut March 30, 2012 at 6:22 pm

And Trayvon was a CHILD, fer fucks sake.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 30, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Crommunist has a nice discussion of the way Trayvon Martin has been constructed as a "perfect victim," and why this characterization (by the non-douchebag media, at least) is still problematic:

Trayvon Martin was 17, a good student, and not associated with any kind of criminal past. Therefore he didn’t deserve to get shot. Can you imagine the reaction if he had gone to the store for a beer or a pack of smokes instead? Or if he had been in that neighbourhood because he was in foster care? Or if he had been a C student instead of a B student? All it takes in cases like this is the presence of a single imperfection for the victim blaming and ignoring to begin. Trayvon Martin is far from the first black teenager to be killed despite being innocent of any crime. The reason this story has legs is because we can’t find something with which to drag him through the mud as we exonerate his killer.

(The blogger is Canadian, so he gets to say "neighbourhood")

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 5:43 pm

But does he say that Trayvon Martin should never have gone oot of the Hoose in that neighbourhood?

iburl March 30, 2012 at 8:13 pm

Thanks for posting that. I do not give a shit if Treyvon was on a bagful of Rush Limbaugh's hillbilly heroin that night. That fucking racist scumbag kook Zimmerman is not goddamn Judge Dredd.

bagofmice March 30, 2012 at 9:26 pm

You have to understand, he has PTSD. Post Trayvon Skittles Defense. When a rainbow like that is coming out, there's no telling what a man will do.

Negropolis March 30, 2012 at 10:27 pm

That is part of the reason, and particularly the reason why the story keeps going. But I'd say that this story has any legs, whatsoever, because Zimmerman has not been arrested. If Zimmerman would have been arrested, that night, this would still be a horrible story, but it'd have been a week-long story, TOPS.

I've said all along that Trayvon could have actually been acting suspicious and looking in windows and doing all kinds of shit and it still wouldn't have justified the shooting. The only really important part of this story that anyone needs to know is that Zimmerman got out of his car after following someone. This is the very definition of a vigilante. He was not in his house or on his lawn protecting his property of any such thing. This man was out looking for trouble, practically hunting, and he found trouble.

Chet Kincaid March 31, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Yes, why won't anyone just come out and say that Trayvon had a right to defend himself? ( I know, I'm repeating myself…)

SayItWithWookies March 30, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Both men share rocky backgrounds, with Martin having been suspended from school on multiple occasions for various reasons and Zimmerman having previous run-ins with the law.

Oh, right — so let's see here — the teenager got suspended for having a baggie with pot residue in it, and the adult got fired for being dangerously violent while acting as a security guard, his girfriend put out a restraining order against him, and he was also arrested for somethingorother. So the DC is saying these are somehow equivalent, and that either one of them could have been the violent aggressor? Yeah, that's a solid implication.

Jukesgrrl March 30, 2012 at 5:41 pm

I'm sure Tucker would be happier if no young African-American men were taking the SATs, so that's a check in his "bad" column. Fishing is OK as long as it's not being done near any of the Carlson family's homes.

Trayvon Martin wasn't a man, he was a boy — a skinny 17-year-old high school kid. And rocky background? Please, the boy skipped class, was among some kids who wrote "WTF" on a locker, and may have had some "marijuana residue" (but no actual weed) in a baggie in his book bag. His "rocky background" makes my high school years look like a Bonnie & Clyde crime spree.

Chet Kincaid March 30, 2012 at 6:01 pm

The 17 year old kid is one of two "men" now? Right wing fucks only want to call black men "men" when they need justification for putting a minor under the jail, in the Chair, or inside a crime scene tape-outline.

starfanglednut March 30, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Other than that, it's "boy" all the way.

Gainsbourg69 March 30, 2012 at 9:05 pm

White boys get to be little kids way past their thirties but black boys are men as soon as they get a little peach fuzz on their chins. Look at James O'keefe. He pulls some funny shit on a government official and he walks. If a black boy does the same thing he's part of the New Black Panther party and sent directly to the hole for three years.

prommie March 30, 2012 at 6:02 pm

If he keeps pushing it in the hole, there's gonna be Santorum!

maw2 March 30, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Funny and gross at the same time!!

Callyson March 30, 2012 at 6:03 pm

Does anyone know who advertises on the Daily Caller? I want to make sure I don't support them accidentally, and I don't have the strength to go to Fucker Snarlson' website to find out…

Limeylizzie March 30, 2012 at 6:08 pm

OT But good news for actors, the SAG/AFTRA merger has gone through!

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Great!

What does that mean?

Limeylizzie March 30, 2012 at 6:43 pm

Well, there are 3 actors unions, Actors Equity- represents you when doing theatre-Screen Actors Guild-Mainly Film and some TV ,and AFTRA which represents Soap Operas, some TV and radio, Most people are in all three ,if are working professionally , but AFTRA was an open-door union so people get into AFTRA and then get into what are seen as better unions in a backdoor way, sort of. Anyway in 2008 AFTRA made agreements before SAG did so they undercut some contracts and more TV shows started using an AFTRA contract which meant that SAG actors were making less money for their Health and Pension if they were already vested. It's complicated but we have long wanted there to be only 2 unions, I would prefer all three merge, so that we have better bargaining options and now the membership of both unions, there is a lot of overlap most people are already members of both unions paying two sets of dues, has voted to merge the two unions into one bigger, stronger union.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 6:52 pm

That is good news! Consolidated bargaining power and a dues savings to boot.
Thank you for taking the time to explain the workings behind the things we all see everyday.

Limeylizzie March 30, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Actors will now take over the world!

Biff March 30, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Which one is Zombie Reagan president of, again?

Limeylizzie March 30, 2012 at 8:17 pm

SAG

Gainsbourg69 March 30, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Can we expect better American films?

102415 March 31, 2012 at 12:37 pm

No. But it still was a good idea and we voted yes. So did Zombie Reagan most likely.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Here's the Daily Caller's Theme Song.

donner_froh March 30, 2012 at 6:47 pm

His next show will be on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

valthemus March 30, 2012 at 7:03 pm

It's a good thing to see Tucker the Dancing Wonder Schmuck come to his senses and realize they had taken an untenable position on the matter. And it was good to see them taking a more measured, objective approach to the editorials they present. Except, of course, for that lie-filled Ann Coulter piece on their site, but I guess only the stuff written by the marginally human actually counts.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 7:27 pm

I'd like to think that Tucker "came to his senses". However, as I tend to think the worst of him I think it's more likely that he got a Dope Slap from some adult, probably in the Legal profession and was told to do this In No Uncertain Terms Or Else.

Come here a minute March 30, 2012 at 7:41 pm

I'm still trying to figure out how to unfold my monitor so I can read the stories below the fold.

After the jump, also–hengh?

The Internet is a series of pieces of paper, and links are the staples, Grandpa.

Having started my professional career working on turbomachinery and other scary rotating equipment I developed a habit of wearing bow ties. This man has destroyed the bow tie as thoroughly as Hitler destroyed a perfectly good mustache style.

maw2 March 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

With Trayvon being the pursued didn't he have a right to "stand his ground"?

HistoriCat March 31, 2012 at 8:52 am

Did you miss out on the fact that Trayvon was blah?

glamourdammerung March 31, 2012 at 7:45 pm

I thought that meant he could only stand his ground 3/5ths of the way?

Chet Kincaid March 31, 2012 at 8:00 pm
MRjonz March 30, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Ah, for the good old days, when venerable old gentlemen such as myself could belabor a scoundrel such as Tucker Carlson about the head and shoulders with our walking stick, make him taste the back of a kidskin glove, and then cause him to soil himself in front of his seconds the next morning at sunup with a well place shot past his earlobe at ten paces, after which he dared not show his face in public or his club.

Gainsbourg69 March 30, 2012 at 9:30 pm

When conservatives whine about the good old days I don't think they look that far back.

Negropolis March 30, 2012 at 9:45 pm

It is underneath a gigantic piece alleging some sort of ill-defined venality by Sen. Carl Levin for wanting to install electric car chargers at the Capitol.

Yeah, because helping one of General Motors' products (and those of other electric cars, in fact) is so un-American and unpatriotic, right?

Both men share rocky backgrounds, with Martin having been suspended from school on multiple occasions for various reasons and Zimmerman having previous run-ins with the law.

BTW, I hate false equivalencies like this. Martin was suspended from school. Zimmerman was in actual legal trouble for both resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer and domestic violence. These two things are not the same thing, and even that doesn't really matter to what actually happened that night. To follow it up a sentence latter stating that Martin's disciplinary history shows no signs of violence don't make earlier making the false equivalency any better.

slowhansolo March 31, 2012 at 1:59 am

Hey, that's great. A bit of balance.

But listen. If anyone wants to take on anyone in a heavier weight class than the Daily Fucking Non-Entity That No One Reads Caller, how about some attention to the Associated Fucking Press, which everyone reads, and which put out a lengthy story Friday about how no one should make judgments based on the initial photos, since the dead teen looks TOTALLY different and has gained at least 20 pounds, and meanwhile Zimmerman has lost at least 20 and looks "sharp" in his spiffy jacket.

I mean, shit, let's go where the impact is?

And yeah, snark, whatever.

I am sick of hearing about pot residue. In our zero tolerance world, pot residue is a chargeable offense. I feel fairly sure, having seen this kind of crap for myself at local high schools, that they had nothing but a panting dog who was tired and wanted to sit down. And since he was black and had been suspended before, they sent him home.

ttommyunger March 31, 2012 at 2:56 pm

No, Tucker, we don't want to see your tits. Yes, I'm sure they are awesome, and yes, we still think you are a little trust-fund shit stain.

FlownOver April 1, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Carlson cannot walk back the grounds for his richly deserved skullfucking.

Biff March 30, 2012 at 7:05 pm

JC Watt, perhaps?

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Good. Now, I will be your problem.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 7:07 pm

I'm not sure that he can read, but good guess!

rickmaci March 30, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Except for Herman Caine and Condi Rich, that pretty much runs the table on black members of the Republican Party.

C_R_Eature March 30, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Good Catches! How did I forget those two?

Oh, I know: Condi Rice has gone peacefully over the event Horizon into Academia and I'm trying really hard to forget Cain.

redarmyzombie March 31, 2012 at 5:27 am

Does Colin Powell count anymore?

GunToting[Redacted] March 31, 2012 at 11:04 am

Did he ever?

102415 March 31, 2012 at 6:01 pm

I been thinking about him too.

redarmyzombie March 31, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Good point.

Chet Kincaid March 31, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Right up until he lied to the UN.

Chet Kincaid March 31, 2012 at 7:09 pm

You'll remember Herman Cain when he shoots your family dog out of a cannon!!
