Ben Shapiro on Tucker Carlson: He Thinks If You Don’t Believe Him, You’re Part of the Conspiracy

“The only man of courage in this routine is apparently this truth-seeker Tucker, who apparently only asks questions but doesn’t actually examine the evidence on these particular issues.”

Tucker Carlson was a guest on the most recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, with the discussion sometimes bordering on absurdity. Talk about aliens, 9/11 conspiracies, and more permeated the conversation. Ben Shapiro has now taken aim at Carlson for his viewpoints.

On Monday’s episode of The Ben Shapiro Show, The Daily Wire co-founder argued Carlson isn’t the thought leader he believes himself to be after he claimed the United States was “evil” for dropping atomic bombs on Japan at the conclusion of World War II. He added that anyone who would defend the use of nuclear weapons is, by association, evil as well.

“This particular interview included a lot of conspiratorial thinking,” Shapiro noted.

“When Tucker talks, there’s a grain of truth to what Tucker says … but there’s a difference between healthy skepticism, the demand for evidence — that’s what skepticism is. Being a critical thinker is just a demand for evidence. That is not the same thing as ‘just asking questions.’ … ‘Just asking questions’ doesn’t make you a critical thinker,” Shapiro said during his criticism of the former Fox News host.

Ben Shapiro argued that Carlson’s recent conspiratorial turn makes him “the only person you can trust” when hearing the topic of discussion for the first time.

“According to Tucker, you have to believe Tucker, and if you don’t, it’s probably because you’re part of the conspiracy or cover-up. Because you’re ‘owned.’ Because you’ve become the ‘establishment’, because you’re weak, and you can be ‘taken over’ by nefarious forces. The only man of courage in this routine is apparently this truth-seeker Tucker, who apparently only asks questions but doesn’t actually examine the evidence on these particular issues. Because why do you need to know things when you can just ask questions?”

The Daily Wire co-founder concluded by stating that there once was a person who would “set fire” to such a narrative being presented in mainstream media. He argued that that person’s name is Tucker Carlson.

Bob and Kelli Phillips have hosted Texas Country Reporter for decades before hosting their final show Sunday. Now, they’ll take a new show and podcast to KRLD in Dallas.

The new Texas lifestyle and storytelling program — On the Road with Kelli & Bob — will begin on the Audacy-owned all-new station on Sunday, June 2nd, and will be heard from 2-3 PM. The show will also be available throughout the state and a podcast of the program will be available on the Audacy app.

“We’ve been telling stories across Texas for almost 50 years and did not know how other people from other states would embrace us calling in and asking to tell their stories,” Bob Phillips told the Houston Chronicle. “While doing so, we have had a great response and have heard a common thread among everyone we talk to. When we approach them, we say we like to tell positive, uplifting stories about people doing great things — and what we hear the most is ‘Good, we need more of that in the world.’”

The husband and wife duo sold their long-running Texas Country Reporter show in December 2021, and stayed on until a new host was found. J.B. Sauceda will host the newest season of the program, the 53rd in its history, when the program resumes in September.

Erick Erickson has never been shy about his original disdain for former President Donald Trump. And while he is often mocked for his views on the cult-like figure, he’s comfortable in his stance.

In a post on social media, Erick Erickson argued that his place in the conservative media landscape isn’t affected by his beliefs or views, despite the pushback from those both in media and in politics.

“I have become the object of scorn for some on the right who think we are in a post-constitutional order in need of a dictatorship to bend the nation in our direction,” Erickson wrote. “I’m okay with being the object of scorn from morons.”

In an era in news/talk radio that has seen many hosts rise in prominence for their support of former President Trump, Erickson has taken the opposite approach and has found as much or more success than others in the genre. His nationally syndicated program, which originates from 95.5 WSB in Atlanta, is now heard on dozens of stations across the nation.

As the trial against former President Donald Trump (R) continues, Salem Radio Network host Dr. Sebastian Gorka is in New York to report on the happenings during The Mike Gallagher Show.

On Tuesday morning, Gorka was joined by Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX), Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in a show of support for the former President.

Sebastian Gorka served in the Trump White House as Deputy Assistant to the President and Strategist. However, he departed the White House after seven months a week after Steve Bannon exited.

Gorka — who has called the proceedings against the former President a “kangaroo court” — will report on the latest events of the trial during the nationally syndicated Mike Gallagher Show, which like Gorka’s America First program, airs on the Salem Radio Network.
