CHRIS HAYES (HOST): As I discussed last night, [Fox host Tucker] Carlson is the most adept and sophisticated communicator on Trump TV when it comes to pushing ideas that have been embraced by white supremacists. But the tone is set from the top. Parent company Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his son, the CEO, Lachlan Murdoch run a media empire which has pushed nativist ideas across the globe. Rupert is reportedly quote "a big Carlson fan" and made the decision to give him his prime-time show.
