Tucker Carlson did something no one expected.

Liberals will be seeing red.

And that’s because Tucker Carlson set a record that Democrats will not believe.

CNN and the rest of Carlson’s critics regularly attack the host – as well as Fox News Channel – for allegedly running “state TV.”

Liberals complain Fox News promotes alternate facts because Fox News – and Carlson in particular – refuse to engage in the corporate media groupthink around trying to always frame stories and events in the most favorable light for Democrats.

That corporate media narrative was – unsurprisingly – a lie.

According to the latest ratings report Carlson attracts more Democrat viewers in the crucial 25-54 age demographic than any host on cable news.

Carlson brings in more younger Democrat viewers than even Rachel Maddow.

The Wrap reports:

MORE SURPRISING ARE THE STATS ABOUT CARLSON AND FOX NEWS’ PULL WITH SELF-PROCLAIMED DEMOCRATS. OF THOSE DEMO-AGED VIEWERS SURVEYED WHO IDENTIFIED AS DEMOCRATS, 39% CHOSE FOX NEWS, 31% CHOSE MSNBC AND 30% CHOSE CNN FOR PROGRAMMING FROM 8 P.M. ET TO 11 P.M. ET. IN TOTAL-DAY VIEWERSHIP, FOX NEWS GRABBED 42% OF DEMOCRATS AGED 25-54, CNN NABBED 33% AND MSNBC GOT 25%.

CARLSON WAS TOP AMONG DEMOCRATS IN THE DEMO ACROSS ALL OF CABLE NEWS THAT MONTH AND RANKED THIRD PLACE AMONG DEMS IN TOTAL VIEWERSHIP, TOO. OF THE TOP FOUR PROGRAMS AMONG DEMOCRATS IN TOTAL VIEWERS, FOX NEWS HAD THREE: “THE FIVE,” “TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT” AND “HANNITY.” THE TOP SPOT IN TOTAL VIEWERS WENT TO MSNBC’S “THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW.”

Carlson’s show often defies normal ideological lines.

On the show, Carlson regularly promotes Donald Trump’s America First foreign policy agenda which opposes endless military intervention.

Carlson will host guests whether they find common ground on opposing new invasions of the Middle East or starting a war with Russia over Ukraine.

Over the past five years establishment Democrats asserted a more militaristic posture attacking Donald Trump for wanting to withdraw troops from Afghanistan or Syria.

Every time he proposed the idea of withdrawing troops Democrats would kick and scream and team up with neocons in Congress to try and curtail Trump’s ability to exercise his powers as commander-in-chief.

Younger Democrats generally do not favor endless wars and military interventions.

Cable news programs on CNN and MSNBC are Democrat Party propaganda outlets more than news channels so they will never stray from the official line of the liberal establishment.

That’s how Rachel Maddow turned her show into a cesspool of Russian collusion conspiracy theories, lies and hoaxes.

Now with Joe Biden threatening war with Russia the entire corporate media’s fallen into line with the usual propaganda about how any opposition to conflict over Ukraine is disinformation personally authored by Vladimir Putin.

But that war mongering by the corporate press also helps explain why Tucker Carlson doesn’t just bring in an audience of Trump supporters on a nightly basis.
