Tucker Carlson grilled White House Correspondents' Association president Jeff Mason on Monday over the lack of "political diversity" in the White House press corps.

From Fox News:
"If you had a White House press corps that was 100 percent middle-aged white men," Carlson told Mason, "there would be a full-blown outcry about the lack of diversity and I bet you $100 you would weigh in and say, 'You're right, this doesn't look like America.'

"Do you think it's OK that there are zero registered Republicans in the White House press corps?" the host asked.
"I think what's important is that we have a press corps that's made up of journalists who report the truth and who robustly report on the president of the United States," Mason answered.

Carlson wrapped up the discussion by asking Mason, "Is political diversity important to you?"

"Is diversity important? Of course," Mason said. "Is it my job to talk about what journalists in the White House press corps do? Yes. What they do is report the news regardless of what political party controls the white House

"I wish I believed that," Carlson answered. "I don't."
Mason refused to say political diversity was important and insist the press corps are just honest journalists, which as Tucker pointed out is literally comical if you just look at any of these reporters twitter feeds.

Watch the full clip above and be sure to watch the interview after with Joe Concha who points out how everything Mason said is BS. Mason was still in the studio and Tucker asked him to respond. His BSing made for great comic relief.
