I haven't watched the news in many years. Too many more important things to do. I once read that there are two kinds of people: those who watch the news and those who make it. I chose the latter. It just sounded more fun. 

I don't think I've ever watched a Tucker Carlson episode other than seeing a YouTube snippet here or there. His voice was a little too high and whiny for me anyway.  And most of the time I didn't know what he was talking about. 

However, I saw and heard enough of what he said to not be surprised that he was fired by Fox, which, in the end, is still mainstream media. 

On Tuesday's Tall Tales, Bob K had an interesting "wondering" on what may have happened. 

Bob "wondered" if Fox's canning of Tucker may have been a "sub rosa protocol" wherein some "fringe" figures proposed: "Look Rupert, we'll let you keep Fox and won't go to trial if you pony up 700-something million and get rid of Tucker. (Emphasis on "wondered.")

Bob's use of the term "sub rosa" caught my attention. So I looked it up. Here's what Merriam-Webster says:

Sub rosa literally means "under the rose" in New Latin. Since ancient times, the rose has often been associated with secrecy. 

By "coincidence," I, after more than ten years of trying, and only last night, had finally finished reading Umberto Eco's classic novel, "The Name of the Rose" - and still didn't understand why Eco titled his novel "The Name of the Rose." WTH did roses have to do with the monstrous and revolting horror of Eco's magnificent mystery?

Thanks to Bob's reference to "sub rosa," and my looking it up - now I know. I recommend both the novel and listening to Bob's "sub rosa wondering" here at about 30:00.

The timing of Tucker's ouster - so close to Rupert's settlement - certainly points to something that is unexplained...and could well be "sub rosa.

One thing we do know is that Tucker had been uncovering stuff about January 6 (2021) that completely undermined everything we had been told about January 6 (2021). So Big Brother had good reason to be rid of him.

Anyway, never mind that. 

The reason I'm writing this post isn't to save Tucker Carlson. He'll do that without my help. I'm writing this because, just as this Tucker thing happened, I was contemplating how to proceed with the next segment of my post titled FIXING A WRONG

In short, in May 2018, I got "Tuckered." 

In May 2018, I was essentially ousted from my own blog, this one, by being functionally criminalized, discredited, and silenced, by a full week of media stories casting me as a wife beater and child molester of my own children. But the real story is how these media were "given" that story, at that moment...and why.

And that's where I intend to go...soon. 

Meanwhile, it was interesting to read, and on the same day Tucker got canned, about how the key antagonist in my being "Tuckered" in 2018, received one of the largest raises in LLG's "I take care of those who take care of me" regime. 

It took me five years to emerge from being Tuckered.

It won't take Tucker that long.
