Politicians, Partisans, and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing • 2003 • 256 pages

Tucker Carlson may look too young to have written a memoir, but we can be glad he did. Politicians, Partisans, and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News is perhaps the funniest political book of the year—and I mean laugh-out-loud funny. A number of times, while reading this book, I practically gasped: Doesn’t he know he’s not allowed to write this stuff?

What makes Carlson such a valuable conservative voice on CNN is his courageous willingness to resist all forms of political correctness—conservative as well as liberal. When he defends Gary Condit as a victim of the media’s “sex- ual snobbery,” and a man “deeply wronged—by the press,” it becomes impossible for lefties to dismiss his scathing criticism of (say) Bill Bradley’s speeches as merely the predictable squawking of a partisan hack.

This book is strongly recommended for anybody who likes politics—or just likes terrific stories, engagingly told.
