Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson on “Fox and Friends Weekend” Sunday laid into the opinion editor of The Patriot-News/Pennlive over the publication’s decision to ban opposing views to same-sex marriage on its opinion pages.
Carlson blasted John Micek for his “abhorrent” decision, telling him it was “clear” he considers those with a differing viewpoint “bigots” who hold an “illegitimate” point of view.
The kerfuffle started moments after the Supreme Court decision Friday morning when the Harrisburg newspaper announced it would “no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.”
“You made it pretty clear. You have contempt for people who disagree with your views,” Carlson said. “You consider them bigots and you don’t think that they ought to be able to express those views because they’re illegitimate. That was clear.”
