The New York Times is once again trying to portray Fox News personality Tucker Carlson’s show as perhaps “the most racist program in the history of cable news.”

The three-part series from The New York Times' investigation into "the fall and rise of Tucker Carlson and the transformation of American conservatism" begins with "American Nationalist: Part 1" titled "How Tucker Carlson Stoked White Fear to Conquer Cable."

"This isn’t an opinion or a take," reporter Nick Confessore twitter to promote his three-part piece on the show.

“It’s a fact – supported by our content analysis of 1,150 episodes of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight,’” he added.

Carlson’s success is “the story of how American conservatism evolved from Reagan to Trump – the triumph of the nativist current on the right, and the shrinking boundary between mainline politics and the cranks and conspiracy theorists of QAnon,” Confessore wrote.

All current and former Fox employees questioned for his show chose to remain anonymous.

Responding to the hit piece ahead of its release, Carlson said the Times is "preparing yet another story about how this show is racist because we support national borders."

“This has gotta be the tenth or twenty-seventh or two hundred and seventeenth story just like this The New York Times has run and all of them are pretty much identical,” Carlson said.

“If you wanted to criticize this show, there are plenty of things you could say. We’ve got a ton of supposedly controversial opinions on a million different topics. We talk about them every night,” said Carlson.

But Carlson says his view on race is simple, not "exotic."

“We believe in Martin Luther King,” he said. “We don’t think your skin color is the most important thing about you. We think all people were created by God and should therefore be judged by what they do, not by how they look.”

As for the reporter behind the report, Confessore is one of many “obedient little establishment defenders who will say anything to please their bosses,” Carlson said.

“They’re suck-ups, brown-nosers, lickspittles, not people you’d want to have dinner with,” he added.

Carlson seemed in good spirits after the report was published, even posing for a photo with the article.

The New York Times this weekend posted 20,000 words about “Mr. Carlson,” as the paper calls him, spread over four parts online and two days in the paper.

Times readers binged on the stories: All four parts were at or near the top of the website’s “Trending” rankings.

”Mr. Carlson’s on-air technique — gleefully courting blowback, then fashioning himself as his aggrieved viewers’ partner in victimhood — has helped position him, as much as anyone, to inherit the populist movement that grew up around Mr. Trump,” Confessore writes, calling it “Trumpism without Trump.”
