Tucker Carlson not apologizing for 'misogynistic' comments

Fox News  YouTube

Tucker Carlson took to Fox News Channel's 8 p.m. slot knowing he had the full support of the cable-news network's regular viewers.

The "naughty" comments Carlson refers to in his non-apology include discussions about Britney Spears and Paris Hilton possibly being "the biggest white whores in America", if sex workers can be raped, and whether polygamist cult leader and convicted child sex abuser Warren Jeffs got a raw deal.

His criticism of women extended to prominent figures, such as Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, HuffPost's former editor in chief Arianna Huffington and TV host Alexis Stewart, Martha Stewart's daughter.

Carlson refused to apologize Sunday after audio surfaced of him degrading women and airing controversial opinions about statutory rape and underage marriage on a radio program between 2006 and 2011. Carlson also explained what he thinks makes a "good immigrant" saying, "people who come into this country ought to have something to offer". In response, the shock jock asks Carlson if he was "physically capable" of enduring such unwanted advances or "do you take your hat off to this kid?" Several companies said they had ended their spots on the program earlier this year and said they had no plans to air any ads in the future, including Outback Steakhouse and AstraZeneca.

"You know what gets women going is arguing with them", Carlson told Bubba the Love Sponge in 2006.

What Gayle King was REALLY thinking during explosive R. Kelly interview
An inside source claims that King refuses to sign another contract with CBS unless they give her a much larger salary. The Fox News co-hosts were talking about Kelly's emotional outburst during his sit-down interview with King .

Tucker Carlson speaks during a debate at Politicon in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, October 20, 2018.

In a 2007 recording, Carlson said of women: "They're extremely primitive, they're basic, they're not that hard to understand". I am not defending underage marriage at all. Carlson replied: "So my point is that teachers like this, not necessarily this one in particular, but they are doing a service to all 13-year-old girls by taking the pressure off".

The Washington Post's Erik Wemple, who has covered Carlson for years, said the Fox host is trying to "parlay the up-and-coming scandal into higher ratings" instead of dealing with the substance. I mean, let's me honest about it. "I just don't think it's the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child", said Carlson. He is accused of facilitating the marriage between a 16 year old girl and a 27 year old man.

"Yeah, it's - you know what it is?"

The accusations, that's what they're calling felony bullshit. There are plenty of companies that make money off of Tucker and his show and if you feel passionately about his awful words, it's worth thinking twice about supporting them.
