The rabid leftist organization Media Matters is out to take down Tucker Carlson again!
Carlson on Sunday released a statement addressing his “naughty” jokes her made about 10 years ago.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson is facing new pressure after transcriptions of past radio appearances were published in which he compared women to "dogs" and described them as "extremely primitive."
The radio interview transcriptions were published by Media Matters for America, a liberal-leaning nonprofit group that monitors politically conservative media. Carlson made the comments between 2006 and 2011, when he called into shock-jock radio program "Bubba the Love Sponge," the group said.
The comments sparked new calls for an advertising boycott of Carlson's show. The controversy comes only months after his show lost sponsors following the conservative host's comments about immigrants making the U.S. "poorer and dirtier." At the time, advertisers including personal finance website NerdWallet and Pacific Life insurance pulled spots from the show.
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. Instead, he invited viewers to watch his show to understand how he thinks.
