TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): The way people vote makes a big difference to the outcome. And so, by the way, does access to channels of communication. Why does that matter? Well, because you can say whatever you want, but if no one hears you, you're not really speaking. And that's the case for Republicans. So often, as of tonight, Republicans can communicate their message unencumbered on a single cable television channel and a handful of relatively low-trafficked websites. That's it.

The rest of the American media amounts to a gigantic filter designed to distort what Republicans are saying. It's a campaign apparatus and only the Democrats have it. Now you can whine about that. "Ooh, the media are liberal." But it's not about liberal or conservative, it's about winning elections. And Democrats can win because they have that.
