The Carlson/Imus “Train Wreck”

By Brian 

“Rick Kaplan might have done well to avoid the drive time guest shot for Tucker Carlson to prime up his new show on Don Imus this morning,” an e-mailer says. “In two words, train wreck.”

Carlson appeared around 7:30am. The new MSNBC host made a comment about former Imus newsreader Contessa Brewer and the Imus Ranch in New Mexico, and the I-Man wasn’t pleased.

Imus dismissed and hung up on Carlson. He complained that he put Carlson on at the request of Rick Kaplan. Imus called Carlson a “stupid little bastard.”
