Tucker Mocks Brian Stelter’s World Economic Forum ‘Disinformation’ Panel

Breaking News

On Wednesday night’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, on the Fox News Channel, the eponymous host used the opening segment of the show to mock former CNN janitor and current Harvard University fellow Brian Stelter and all the other “self-confident dumb people” who flocked to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to thumb their nose at non-elites all over the world and America in particular. In classic Tucker fashion, he humorously ridiculed Stelter while also driving a point home. 

Breaking down the gathering of rich and powerful morons, Tucker noted that “if this is all starting to sound like a bad CNN segment to you, a parade of self-confident dumb people, rich in self-esteem, low in wisdom, giving moralizing lectures to one another’s applause, well let us confirm that for you.”

“Where was Don Lemon? Why wasn’t he there? Well, he wasn’t. That’s on next year’s program, no doubt,” Tucker said sarcastically. “This year, we’re not making this up. America’s favorite unemployed media critic, Mr. Brian Stelter, ladies and gentlemen.” 

Tucker then aired a clip of Stelter moderating a panel discussion on “disinformation.” An Orwellian phrase by leftists to describe uncomfortable truths told by conservatives:

STELTER: The clear and present danger of disinformation is our conversation here this afternoon. It follows a session just now about disrupting distrust. And of course, those are connected. So I hope that’s where we can start. I’m Brian Stelter, formerly of CNN, now a fellow at Harvard University. A reminder that the hashtag is WEF23. We can try to put some real information out into the world to make up for all the crazy.

When Tucker came back, he laughed and pointed out how the people at the World Economic Forum were disdainful of people they disagree with having free speech: “The conclusion this year at the World Economic Forum is that people who are not at the World Economic Forum have too much free speech. Too many bad ideas, too much crazy. And too much opportunity to talk. They’re still talking out there. Stop them before they talk some more!”

“So if you’re getting the impression that the world’s most mediocre people and least self-aware people are all congregating in Switzerland this week, you are on to something,” Tucker added.

The superstar cable news host then made the obvious point that the people who attend the World Economic Forum shouldn’t be allowed to run something as simple as a school bake sale: “It might be worth getting an attendee list just to make certain that not a single person who is there this week ever has power over you in any way. If one of these people shows up supervising the bake sale at your kid’s school, call the police. They’re not qualified.”

These elitist snobs want to run our lives, yet if you listen to them speak, they are thoroughly unimpressive. Stelter tops the list in the unimpressive category.
