On Tuesday, April 20, Tucker Carlson delivered a strange, unexpected segment on Fox News in which he spoke about an investigator tracking down his college yearbook.

Many online speculated Carlson was trying to get ahead of a potentially damaging story.

But what could be in Carlson's college yearbook he didn't want people to know about?

Once the reports inevitably broke, it seems in his college yearbook Carlson claimed to be a part of the "Dan White Society."

Dan White was the former San Francisco politician who murdered openly gay Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone.


It seems Carlson's history of intolerance goes all the way back to his college days, when he openly praised and offered his support for a homophobic murderer.



On Twitter, many people drew a connection not only to Carlson's past, but to the conservative movement's relationship with intolerance which continues today.

For the murder of two people, including the Mayor of San Francisco, Dan White (a former police officer) was sentenced to only seven years in prison. He was paroled after serving five.

After White killed Milk and Moscone, he received unabashed support from many of his former colleagues in the city.

A decade later, most people regarded White's sentencing as a miscarriage of justice, but he was still being honored by Tucker Carlson in the young man's college yearbook.


This is only the latest in a long string of damning incidents Carlson has been a part of.

Yet he remains on the air with more viewers than any other cable news program.


Carlson has already signaled he does not regret his yearbook listing and it will not affect his program on Fox News.

And so now we sit back to wait for the next Carlson controversy to emerge.
