Michael Avenatti calls Tucker Carlson "pathetic" and "cowardly" for running a "Creepy Porn Lawyer" chyron on screen during their interview
“I expected to be treated with respect, and certainly not to be lied to,” said Avenatti. “I had no idea until after the show because I don’t have any way of seeing the camera lines when I’m on set...I thought that it was a new low for Fox, which is saying something. And I thought it was pathetic and cowardly of Tucker Carlson.”

The Fox News host's long-awaited interview with Stormy Daniels' attorney was "worse than you're imagining," says Matt Wilstein. Carlson mocked Avenatti throughout the interview by displaying different "Creepy Porn Lawyer" chyrons at the bottom of the screen -- at one point abbreviating the insult as "CPL." Wilstein adds: "It wasn’t until the final moments of the gross display that the words on the screen migrated into Carlson’s mouth. 'Creepy porn lawyer, great to see you,' the host said, getting the last word and cutting to commercial." After the interview, Avenatti seemed to express regret, tweeting that Carlson had agreed to ditch the "name calling" beforehand.

Seth MacFarlane: I'm embarrassed to work for Fox because of "fringe sh*t on Fox News
The Family Guy and The Orville creator has been critical of Fox before, but MacFarlane was set off on Saturday by CNN's Brian Stelter quoting Fox News' Tucker Carlson urging his Fox News viewers to not believe anything on other news outlets: "If you're looking to understand what's actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they're telling you on the big news stations," Carlson said, according to Stelter. MacFarlane responded: "In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News. This is fringe sh*t, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company."

CNN's town hall on the Florida School shooting was unlike anything ever seen on TV before
"American politicians holding town halls with constituents isn’t anything new," says Adam Epstein. "Normally, though, they’re not aired on live national television. Nor do they typically involve students, especially not ones who had just experienced a tragedy and had since devoted seemingly every waking minute to calling for more gun control to prevent the next one." ALSO: President Trump pushed claim that CNN "scripted" its town hall after watching Parkland high school survivor Colton Haab detail his allegation on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show.
