On this episode of Inside the Hive, host Brian Stelter checks in with Vanity Fair senior media correspondent Joe Pompeo and Washington Post national enterprise reporter Sarah Ellison about Tucker Carlson’s Twitter gamble, Donald Trump’s dysfunctional relationship with Fox News, and the idea of the former Fox News host teaming up with the former president for a candidate forum.
“If you put Tucker and Trump together in an unofficial forum [they] would just be hating on the Republicans,” Ellison said. “They’d be hating on Mitch McConnell. They would certainly talk a lot about how terrible the mainstream media is, and that would include Fox as well. It would just be a grievance fest…. These are two people who want to blow everything up.”
