Tucker Carlson’s Website Just Published A Bizarre Anti-Semitic Video

The Daily Caller, a right-wing news website founded by Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, published a bizarre video Thursday mocking the use of Yiddish by a Jewish reporter.

Titled “New York Times’ Glenn Thrush Has KHOUTSPA,” the video shows Thrush being interviewed on MSNBC, before continually repeating Thrush’s use of the word “chutzpah” — while the song “Hava Nagila” plays in the background.

The video was taken down soon after attracting the attention of reporters.

Condemnation of the video was swift from across the political spectrum:

Carlson left his role as editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller when he began hosting a nightly Fox News show, but he is still listed as the chairman of the Daily Caller News Foundation, a not-for-profit whose headquarters is on the same floor of the same building as the website and reportedly employs most of the journalists who write for it.
