As the case often is with other media outlets, the Daily Beast’s track record when it comes to attacks on Tucker Carlson is not very good.

For instance, there was the attempt earlier this year at painting Carlson as a misogynist pig for using an unflattering image of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during a segment on how AOC proclaimed that the Green New Deal might have prevented the Texas blackout.

The only problem was that Daily Beast contributing editor/media reporter Justin Baragona, a Fox News hall monitor who posted the screengrab of Carlson using what Baragona called a “googly eyes” photo of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, is that it was an authentic photo. Baragona deleted the tweet, but the Internet, as they say, is forever. Flashback:

Here we are four months later, and Baragona is still trying and failing to catch Carlson committing some supposedly unpardonable media/political sin. This time the “issue” was a segment where Carlson lit into partisan CNN host Don Lemon about how Lemon preaches on his program about the need for diversity in theory but doesn’t actually practice it. During his commentary, Carlson pointed out that Lemon lives in the small village of Sag Harbor, New York, which is something like 80% white.

Baragona rushed to the Twitter machine to proclaim that Carlson was a hypocrite, and insinuated that he could be putting Lemon’s life in danger by “airing a photo of Lemon’s house and naming the small town”:

There’s a lot going on in this segment, such as Tucker accusing Don Lemon of having a “white supremacist QAnon cookie jar,” but what stands out is Tucker telling his viewers where Lemon lives.

“So why is The New York Times doing a story on the location of my family’s house? “Well, you know why. To hurt us, to injure my wife and kids,” Tucker said last year, targeting reporters for harassment &
