You may not like him or agree with anything he say's but Tucker Carlson's annual salary at Fox is around $6 million and he reportedly signed a $10 million book deal a few years back
According to an article in Celebrity Net Worth, his show (for whatever reason) is consistently the highest-rated cable news program in its time slot, with average nightly viewership of 3.4 million and that he has more viewers than his CNN and MSNBC counterparts combined.
Right, wrong or indifferent, enough people must watch his TV show, for him to be paid so well
So the salary is some sort of indication of how respected he is?
BTW, Jim Lehrer, the legendary debate moderator and former anchor of the "NewsHour" television program, died yesterday. He was 85.
Who mentioned Respect. You dd and your interpretation
I simply made a statement of fact about hs Salary and an observation of how any people view him each night
Don't pretend for one minute that your were simply stating the fact about his viewing numbers when you embellished it (for whatever reason) with how much his viewer market share far exceeds that of his contemporaries of a certain, contrary political persuasion, the much reviled MSM. And then infer that accordingly, he must be doing or saying something right.
Despite his undeniable viewer pulling power, I don't see why Fox has to pay him so much because if they don't, lacking any other mainstream right-leaning television channel to poach him, he would simply join the alt-media and I am not sure all those that blog, radio-talk or YouTube their right-wing mantra's on the 'net are banking near as much as Tucker who?
Personally, I find it worrisome that there is only Fox batting for the deeply conservative news reader and the overwhelming majority of that viewership blindly accept that singular source of news as factual and true. At least the opposition gives one a range of opinions and debate versus Fox's stream of current and former political hacks and retired military in their comfortable, affirmation echo chambers.
