oped: I must agree with Tucker on this one... Glenn has been on a fast track downhill slide the past five years or so...not sure if he is hitting the proverbial Barry Obama bong or doing tequilla jello shots...he flip flops on the issues more than a hot chick wearing a polka dot bikini and designer diamond studded flip flops during spring break on a sandy beach in Florida...maybe just maybe Glenn is afraid to go in the water...dunno y'all be the judge :
Carlson said he did not know what Beck's agenda was, unless he was either "looking to put his tanking Web properties up for sale or he just can't help himself. There's a billionaire there, so he sniffs the throne."
Beck's company, The Blaze, laid off around 40 employees while announcing it was moving its operations to Texas, where its headquarters is located.
Further, Matt Frucci, who was announced as the head of The Blaze's New York television operations the same week the layoffs were announced, resigned a week later.
The meeting was held after a former Facebook employee claimed that the website intentionally kept stories from conservative news outlets from appearing in its "Trending Stories" section.
Beck praised Facebook after the meeting, but slammed some others who were there for "demanding quotas AND diversity training AND less people from Ivy League Colleges," one of whom was Carlson.
"My point was a simple one, which is diversity is deeper than ethnicity," Carlson said. "You can look different but have the same values. That's not diversity; it's conformity. … You want people with different life experiences as a backstop against bad decision."
Beck Friday night said he does not have a problem with Carlson or other progressive Republicans, but he disagrees "with shakedowns of private or publicly traded companies."
