This Is What Tucker Carlson Does For Fun in Manhattan

Some of us enjoy the museums and cafés and theater. Others? The clubs and endless late-night options. Tucker Carlson? He fly-fishes.

The Daily Caller founder and new “Fox & Friends” co-host was caught casting his line in a Central Park pond on a recent afternoon. “Joey Boots,” a citizen journalist and self-described “media terrorist,” got the right-wing media entrepreneur in his viewfinder and began asking him about his strange, albeit legal (as Carlson informs us), hobby.

The well-spoken, side-parted Carlson contrasts sharply with Boots, who has a thick Long Island accent. But the two have a friendly exchange, talk cable TV news, then part ways.

It’s only later that the bespectacled cameraman realizes to whom he was talking, which makes it hilarious that Boots touts CNN and Current TV as his cable channels of choice.
