Tucker's immodest proposal

Conservative pundit and bow tie aficionado Tucker Carlson plans to launch a right-leaning website, called, to cover the policy decisions of the Obama administration. Carlson wants to combine the advocacy-approach of Huffington Post with the pay-per-click model of Gawker to create a site that simultaneously drives the news, beats Drudge Report to the punch and upholds basic journalism standards.

From The Hill:
"We are a general-interest newspaper-format style site," Carlson told conservative bloggers at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. "There just aren't enough people covering this administration and telling the people what's going on." ...

Carlson said that the site's reporters would share in the profits based on how much traffic is drawn in by their work. He said the site would seek to "drive" the news, similar to the Drudge Report, the Huffington Post, the New York Times, and other major news outlets. (The site's motto, Carlson said, is "every seven minutes," and seeks to be "even faster than Drudge.")
