Tucker Carlson Won't Apologize for Misogynistic Rants

Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host who looks like the grown version of every '80s teen movie villain rolled into one, is facing widespread criticism after Media Matters dug up audio from 2006 to 2011 in which Carlson spews sexist remarks on the radio program Bubba the Love Sponge.

"Between 2006 and 2011, Tucker Carlson spent approximately an hour a week calling in to Bubba the Love Sponge, a popular shock jock radio program where he spoke with the hosts about a variety of cultural and political topics in sometimes-vulgar terms", Media Matters said in an article on its website. He adds that "anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why". In the segments, Carlson suggested underage marriage is not as serious as forcible child rape, called rape shield laws "totally unfair" and once said he would "love" a scenario involving young girls sexually experimenting. "I mean, let's me honest about it". Especially feminism. If you're talking to a feminist and she's given you, well, you know men really need to be more sensitive and this, no, actually men don't need to be more sensitive. Carlson asked when Jeffs's conviction was brought up.

CO-HOST: Yeah, it's - you know what it is? Jeffs, Carlson said, was someone with "a different lifestyle that people find creepy". Sorry. Now I'm just telling I'm to raise your marriage between the 16 year old and a 27 year old is not the same as telling a stranger off the street and rapier.

There are growing calls also for those disgusted by Carlson's remarks to boycott advertisers, with activists tweeting out names of those they say pay Fox big money to get their products in front of viewers. Tucker thinks that's a shame.

Carlson also downplayed the actions of cult leader Warren Jeffs, then on the FBI's most-wanted list for his involvement in arranging illegal marriages between adults and underage girls.

Asked for comment on the newly surfaced audio, Fox News referred The Post to Carlson's statement. What do you mean in accessory? Yeah, you said it.

On that same appearance, he called Alexis Stewart, a television and radio host and daughter of Martha Stewart, "cunty". "I don't get that". The spokesperson continued, "We certainly want to make sure [the new tapes] are released when they can be most helpful to the media buying decision makers".

In a 2007 recording, Carlson said of women: "They're extremely primitive, they're basic, they're not that hard to understand".
