Seth MacFarlane has butt hurt over Tucker Carlson telling his audience to believe the opposite of what the MSM reports

seth mcfarlane
Well, Tucker has a valid point. See various examples here, here, here, here, here, here, here, herehere, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
From Daily Mail: Seth MacFarlane, creator of several Fox shows, said he is embarrassed to work for the network after remarks made by anchor Tucker Carlson, telling viewers to believe the opposite of what ‘big news’ reports.
‘If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations,’ Carlson told his viewers on Friday night.
MacFarlane derided Carlson’s message. ‘In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain,’ MacFarlane tweeted.
‘This is fringe sh**, and its business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company,’ the creator of Family Guy and The Orville added.
MacFarlane made his comments on a retweet of CNN’s Brian Stetler, whose show Reliable Sources is a look at how the media covers the news.
The CNN host hit out at Carlson saying he is sending a dangerous message to viewers. ‘Isn’t this sad? Tonight Tucker Carlson told his viewers not to believe ANYTHING they learn from his rivals.’
Fox News has been at the top of cable rated shows for years.
Meanwhile other news sources such as CNN, the New York Times, and Washington Post in recent months have called on viewers to look to several news outlets to gain a fuller understanding of what is happening in the world.

Dr Eowyn . . . . That is the absolute livin’ truth. I watched him once in Orville .. . nothing funny about him. He is just another Hollyweird type that I can easily live without.

If Seth McFarlane and Rob Reiner were to marry,
1- who would kiss the bride?
2-who’d want to?

I thought Tucker’s advice was sage…and I thought that’s what we’ve all been doing already.
Poor Seth…has he run out of things to spend money on?

Know the difference between what is news and what is opinion and all this kafluffery becomes clear. The facts don’t matter. What you can lead people to believe is what matters. we need not get bogged down in the battle to drain the swamp. We just need to keep draining it and as we go leave it so it can’t become swamp again.

“I have MAGA mowed in 30 foot letters in my pasture.”
Can you take a pic of that and send it to FOTM? We’d love to publish it!

Rather than renting a Helicopter to get a good pic,you probably have at least a couple of friends with drones who would do the job.

“Just wanted local air travelers to have some reading material.” 🙂 That is so cute & funny! Pro-Trumpers will love it & the lefties will fog up the windows from fuming, lol! –Would GoogleEarth &/or GoogleMaps have “captured” satellite views of your pasture since you mowed MAGA in the grass? Put in any nearby intersection in either of those apps & then just scroll around until you are above wherever your pasture is & have a look! It might save you from having to build a pole. 🙂 –If you’re in a pro-Trump-friendly town, maybe your local Weather-chopper &/or News/Traffic-chopper… Read more »

PS: Depending how long your MAGA has been mown in the grass, I was thinking someone may have already photographed it while flying by & posted it online. I only did a very quick search (not thoroughly) & so far only found this Michigan guy’s story w/photo from 2016. Funny because he said similar as you. 🙂
09/2016: “Michigan man mows 58,000 square-foot ‘TRUMP’ sign into lawn”:

FOX should be embarrassed to let a puke like Seth MacFarlane have a voice on their network.

Tucker Carlson “live in my house” Mon through Fri, he is dynamic, straight shooter and from the hip, and so polite he cuts off the inflexible left. I like him!

I think Mr. Carlson is spot on with this comment — “‘If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations,’ Carlson told his viewers on Friday night.” — and I congratulate him for saying it. Praise the Lord. PS: Would love to see that picture of MAGA mowed in a pasture.

Seth MacFarlane: creator, writer, producer, star, and director of “The Orville”, a a space parody in which on one episode, a pair of large, black, male humanoid aliens (show regulars) are revealed to not only be a couple, but to be pregnant together. One of them lays an egg. It hatches into a baby girl alien, which they then fight over the need to immediately change her gender to become a male baby alien, as happens regularly in their culture, as it’s an all-male culture (hence, their gay relationship). Then one of the two tells why he’s adamantly opposed to… Read more »

Seth’s cartoons are some of the most gross & corrosive forms of “entertainment” out there. He is a disgusting human. And another example of cultural Marxist debasement foisted on society.

Here’s something I only learned this past Sunday when he appeared on “This Week” as a panelist — ABC News Director (since 2013), Rick Klein: https://abcnews.go.com/WN/rick-klein-official-biography/story?id=51404 I’d literally thought he was someone else’s little brother on stage. Turns out he’s 42; brought on-board at 37 years old. News Director. Experience. Maturity. What? But I’m seeing a LOT of this going on, even in Trump’s Administration (e.g., Hope Hicks headed the Comms Office until recently). Might give an idea as to how something like that could appear via ABC News. If it bleeds, AND makes Trump look bad, then it need… Read more »

Tucker Carlson is right, of course! If he’s the FIRST to ever say such a thing on the “MSM,” give him a medal. Quote: […] *”In U.S. Army Intelligence, I was trained that the truth most often lies in the exact opposite direction of the public rhetoric. You must learn this technique if you are to successfully glean the truth from news reports. […] “During the Vietnam War, I joined U.S. Army Intelligence, and was assigned to the Joint Intelligence Sobe Processing Center on Okinawa. This facility was so high level it was called ‘The Pentagon of the East’… “One… Read more »
