TUCKER CARLSON (HOST):  The latest of a long series of the moral litmus tests delivered to us by fiat on cable news. Support this. Don't support that. Otherwise you're bad person. That's the message of almost every show: share my beliefs or you are damned.

But spare us the theatrics now. This is a stunt. It's an international incident hyped and manufactured for domestic political goals.
