TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I thought you just re-signed at CNN, they wanted you to work there and then I’m watching you tonight and they’re telling me that like, you’re evil. How did that --

STEPHEN MOORE: This is a little awkward for CNN, because every night they trash me now, when, for the last two and a half years, I've been their senior economics writer. And the things that they're talking about now are things that happened 20 years ago. Wait a minute, if I'm such a scoundrel and a sexist, why did they have me on every night?

CARLSON: What's the answer?

MOORE: Well, I mean, I don't know. You would have to ask them, but -- but the point is, you know, I don't think you should hold accountable, you know, for things that were written 25 years ago.
