Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize for unearthed audio of inappropriate comments

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is under fire for comments degrading women during interviews on a radio show between 2006 and 2011, after the nonprofit Media Matters for America released audio from the show on Sunday.

"Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago", he said.

Media Matters president Angelo Carusone simultaneously bragged on social media that the tapes of Tucker Carlson were dropped at a time when Fox News was to host an event for their biggest advertisers.

Carlson, who defended his track record in a tweet, said he wouldn't give the "usual ritual contrition" after his previous comments about women surfaced.

The Fox News anchor has invited "anyone who disagrees" with his views to come on his show. In 2011, Jeffs was convicted of child sexual assault and sentenced to life in prison. "I mean, let's me honest about it".

He's not accused of touching anybody; he is accused of facilitating a marriage between a 16-year-old girl and a 27-year-old man. You know, she didn't. Jeffs, Carlson said, was someone with "a different lifestyle that people find creepy".

Valerio, a 3-year-old jaguar, managed to get out of its cage at Louisiana's Audubon Zoo and kill nine animals. The zoo posted a message on Twitter that read in part, "Please understand why the barriers are put in place".

"I am not defending underage marriage at all - I just don't think it's the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child..."

He said that "what gets women going is arguing with them" about politics, especially feminism.

"You know, all too often, [Charles] Manson thinks that you're a god", Bubba responded. You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told and lighten up a little bit.

While Fox has distanced itself from another one of its hosts, Jeanine Pirro, for asking if Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's Islamic religious beliefs violated the U.S. Constitution, it has so far declined to comment on Carlson's statements.

"After Bubba the Love Sponge described underage girls at Carlson's daughter's boarding school experimenting sexually with each other, Carlson said, 'If it weren't my daughter I would love that scenario'". He also said, "there's no Canadian woman that you'd want to pay to sleep with". What do you mean in accessory?

Carlson also had choice words for women, among them Martha Stewart's daughter, who he agreed with the hosts was "c*nty". "And one of the things they hate more than anything is weakness in a man". "We were actually helping people better understand just how vile your current Fox News show is by showing what that worldview really looks like".
