Tucker Carlson takes #4 spot among 2017's Higher Ed Heroes

  • Campus Reform's readers chose popular Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson as one of the top five Higher Ed Heroes of 2017.
  • Carlson is known for directly challenging liberal professors in one-on-one interviews, one of which even led to the firing of a professor who argued in favor of a Black Lives Matter Memorial Day that excluded white people.

Popular Fox News Channel host and founder of The Daily Caller Tucker Carlson took fourth place in Campus Reform’s 2017 Higher Ed Heroes competition.

Carlson routinely humbles radical professors on his hit show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, where he exposes their liberal bias and often discriminatory viewpoints.

In one instance, Carlson took Essex County College Professor Lisa Durden to task for defending a Black Lives Matter Memorial Day event that white people were excluded from attending.

“Boo hoo hoo. You white people are angry because you couldn’t use your white privilege card,” Durden said during the interview, which eventually led to her being fired from the school.

“The character of this institution mandates that we embrace diversity, inclusion, and unity,” President Anthony Munroe said in a statement at the time. “Racism cannot be fought with more racism.”
