Greta Van Susteren: Tucker Carlson’s a ‘pig’ for Palin story

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren is calling out Daily Caller owner Tucker Carlson as a “pig” and “purveyor of smut” for prominently posting a story with the headline: “Mike Tyson: Sarah Palin met the ‘womb shifter.’”

Writing on her blog, Van Susteren expresses outrage at how Carlson — whom she refers to as her “friend” — covered a radio interview in Las Vegas with Tyson in which the former heavyweight champ used crude and sexually offensive language in talking about inter-racial sex.

The headline on the Daily Caller story refers to Tyson’s comments on the alleged sexual encounter over 20 years ago between Palin and past NBA star Glen Rice, which is claimed in Joe McGinniss’s new biography of the former Alaska governor. Tyson’s graphic street language from the radio interview is quoted at length in the Daily Caller story.

According to Van Susteren, the Daily Caller’s story and headline about Tyson’s interview amounts to “violence against women.”

Van Susteren tells readers on her blog that she isn’t including a link to the Daily Caller story because “…I am not going to help Tucker be a pig … he apparently can do it all himself without my help.”
