Is Oprah Bad for Baby Boys

By Julissa Catalan


During a FOX News segment, anchor Tucker Carlson revealed that he stopped watching The Oprah Winfrey Show after the birth of his son because Winfrey constantly attacks men.

The conversation began during a segment about a father who wrote an open letter on his blog, AtHomeDadMatters.com, breaking up with rap music for “the sake of his daughters. ”

Co-host Anna Kooiman read an excerpt on air:

“It’s your rampant misogyny, homie. It is an epidemic. Your unapologetic sexism is a scourge on an otherwise exceptional cultural phenomenon. For the sake of my daughters, I’ve got to kick you to the curb.”

Carlson then chimed in with the unexpected Oprah comparison:

“When I had a son, I stopped watching Oprah because it was just too anti-male, and I felt like I didn’t want to bring him up in a home where Oprah was constantly attacking men. And it’s really helped a lot,” he said.

Kooiman seemed uncomfortable and quickly deflected the comment, noting that rap music is not the only genre that should be singled out. “It’s not just rappers, it’s everybody,” she said. “It’s Miley Cyrus, it’s Kesha, it’s Rihanna.”

The blog post gives a history of hip-hop of sorts, quoting song lyrics as validation for why rap music is a bad example for females, saying, “You feel me, rap music Believe me, I appreciatecha as an art form, but how about showing a little respect for the majesty and wonder of the opposite sex”

But Carlson did not stop at that one comment. “And remember, keep your boys away from Oprah, it will make them feel bad about being male,” he said to end the segment. “It’s absolutely true. Keep your girls away from rap, keep your boys away from Oprah. And everybody will be fine.”
