Tucker CaCarlson’sollege yearbook seemed to foretell plenty about the man whose bigotry would later fill the prime time airwaves on Fox News. In a 1991 Trinity College yearbook entry now making the rounds on social media, Carlson wrote that he was part of the “D”n White Society.” “ews outlets presumed he was referring to the man who in 1978 murdered San
Francisco Mayor George Moscone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk, CaCalifornia’sirst openly gay elected official. Carlson is also affiliated with the Jesse Helms Foundation, named after North CaCarolina’songtime anti-gay and anti-civil rights senator. Trinity, a liberal arts school in Hartford, Connecticut, confirmed the entry was confirmed to The Wrap but said the Dan White Society did not appear to exist at the school. The fact-checking blog Snopes could not find any mention of the Jesse Helms Foundation elsewhere in the yearbook either, perhaps indicating it, too, wasn’t a school-sanctioned group.
In a segment on his show Tuesday, Carlson claimed a media rival had been conducting “o” position research.”
“ashington Post owner “J”ff Bezos had one of his minions, a mentally unbalanced middle-aged man called Erik Wemple, pull our dusty college yearbook and call around and see if wewe’done anything naughty at the age of 19,” “arlson alleged.
Wemple, the PoPost’sedia critic, declined to address CaCarlson’somments to The Hill.
Carlson graduated from Trinity with a B.A. in history, according to his bio.
