BuzzFeed News’ chief Los Angeles correspondent Kate Aurthur decided to smear Tucker Carlson.
So she did what any sensible “journalist” would do.
She found a picture of him and a prostitute, and implied the worst.
According to Daily Wire:
On Saturday, Aurthur posted screenshots of a photograph featuring Christina Parreira, a self-described “sex worker,” kissing Carlson on the cheek as he’s laughing and turning away. The point of the screenshots, according to Aurthur, was to somehow expose Carlson as a fraud for pushing “family values” and simultaneously treating Parreira as a human being.
“Remember [Tucker Carlson’s] lecture during the height of family separation in June about how the left doesn’t care about family values? Well, I’m not one to kink shame, but here he is with a sex worker. Go Tucker?” she posted.
WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT.
“I’m not one to kink shame, but here I am, smearing someone’s name without a MODICUM of due diligence.”
The WORST part? This picture was taken at a freaking FUNERAL.
Compounding the desperate nature of the attack, the photo was apparently taken at a mutual friend’s funeral. And Carlson was not aware that Parreira was a sex worker.
“I took that photo at… a funeral,” responded Mitchell Sunderland, an editor-at-large at Penthouse. “Christina didn’t even tell Carlson her profession. All anyone spoke about that night was our dead mutual friend. It was the most PG-rated night in Nevada history.”
WAY TO GO, BUZZFEED.
Did this MORON know that, and decide to smear Tucker with blatantly misleading connotations ANYWAY, or is she SO FREAKING BAD AT THIS that she couldn’t even bother to find this out?
In a piece for The Federalist, Parreira recalled the innocent interaction she had with Carlson at the funeral thusly: “There was nothing salacious or inappropriate about this moment with Carlson. It was a celebrity taking a few minutes out of his day to make a fan feel good. I approached Tucker and told him what a huge fan I was, and he was kind enough to say yes to a photo. It was nothing more and nothing less. When I offered to buy him a drink, he declined. He had a club soda instead,” she wrote.
Even worse? When faced with the TRUTH… she simply didn’t care.
Her response was as pathetic as you’d imagine:
TRANSLATION: I can say WHATEVER I WANT about people I don’t like, and I don’t have to put up with the consequences of my lies.
Ladies and gentlemen, the state of American media!
ALSO – isn’t the left all about “slut acceptance” and against “slut shaming” (their words, not mine) and so on and so forth? Are they REALLY trying to smear Tucker for being friendly to a “Sex worker?” What should he have done? Spit in her face and told her to get AWAYYYYY from him?
Is acting FRIENDLY towards someone whose lifestyle you don’t agree with a source of shame now?
You know who spent time with prostitutes? JESUS. JESUS DID. And no – I am in NO WAY comparing Tucker to Jesus. I’m just saying trying to call a Christian a hypocrite for being friendly to a prostitute is kiiiiinda ignorant, don’t you think?
