Fox News’ Tucker Carlson told us that many in Trump’s base feel that the “combined forces of global power have turned on them and are cracking down hard — hilariously, in the name of democracy.”
“Not a sustainable moment,” Carlson added. “Something will break.”
Ben Shapiro, a media leader on the right, told us this sentiment “is widespread, and it grows more dominant with every NYT columnist calling for a social media crackdown, every WaPo columnist lumping in mainstream conservatives with Capitol rioters, every corporation mirroring woke priorities.”
Shapiro created an internal and external firestorm at Politico when he guest-authored the franchise Playbook. Staff revolted, which Shapiro cites as another example of mainstream media trying to silence the right.
