Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson had his peaceful fly fishing outing in New York City’s Central Park interrupted over the weekend by contributor to Howard Stern’s show.
The Hollywood Reporter on Monday reported that Joey Boots posted video of his confrontation with Carlson that first seemed like it could become antagonistic before the Fox News host began sharing his tips for catching the big one in the most visited urban park in the United States.
“It’s not very good fishing, there are too many people around,” The Daily Caller founder admitted. “There are largemouth bass.”
Carlson went on to ask Boots, who obviously did not recognized the television pundit, which cable news shows he watched the most.
“My favorite to actually watch news? CNN,” Boots said. “I also like Current, Current TV is good. They have a lot of interesting angles. It’s very left though.”
“Do you like [Keith] Olbermann?” Carlson wondered.
“I like Keith,” Boots replied. “He’s good. He’s not with Current anymore.”
“No, he’s not,” Carlson agreed in a very concerned voice. “Do you watch Fox?”
“I watch Fox,” Boots said. “I like to get my news from all over, and then I make up my mind in between all that.”
Boots later explained that Carlson had said that he worked in media, but had denied being employed by Fox News or having a Twitter account. Carlson accepted a job last month hosting the weekend edition of Fox & Friends. His Twitter account has almost 130,000 followers.
Catch-and-release fishing is legal in Central Park’s Harlem Meer, the Central Park Lake, and the Central Park Pond with a valid New York fishing license.

Trump has figured out how to get taxpayers to renovate one of his golf courses: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.
"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."
Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office
The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.
Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.
He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.
Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.
Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.
"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."
"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.
"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
