Tucker Carlson calls women ‘extremely primitive’ in newly surfaced audio

Tucker Carlson with a mic

Today's media flap involves liberal advocacy group Media Matters going after a familiar target-Fox News, and specifically host Tucker Carlson.

Media Matters revealed in audio recordings they unearthed that Carlson over a five year period (2006 - 2011) repeatedly made extremely misogynistic remarks and grotesquely attacked about a half-dozen women by name.

After Media Matters published the radio audio and accompanying transcripts, which retained the context of each comment, the left pounced on Carlson, calling for a boycott of his Fox News show or for Fox News to fire Carlson altogether. Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I'm on television every weeknight for more than an hour. He adds that "anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why". Warren Jeffs is now a convicted sexual predator behind bars on two counts of child sexual abuse. I mean, it's nothing they did, you know.

He described Hillary Clinton as "anti-penis" and said "you look at Hillary and you know in your heart that if she could castrate you, she would".

Carlson was pressed about the age of the children and defended Jeffs more.

CO-HOST: No, he's in prison for facilitation of child rape.

"Tucker Carlson is a risky misogynist". I'm just telling you that arranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old is not the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her.

Brown calls report of trade to Bills 'fake news'
For what it's worth, NFL Network is the only outlet to have reported the deal and it has not been made official by either team. The Raiders have thus far successfully hurdled the first obstacle of the offseason: not overpaying for Antonio Brown .

"The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different", he said.

He says that "what gets women going is arguing with them". Tucker thinks that's a shame.

"What do you mean an accessory?" Carlson was a regular on Bubba's show back then. "Well, this could be awkward: Fox News is supposed to host event for biggest advertisers and media buyers at their headquarters this week", he tweeted. Do you believe what he has said in the past is relevant for today?

Carlson responded: "If it weren't my daughter, I would love that scenario".

"I got to be honest with you".

"We certainly want to make sure [the new audio tapes] are released when they can be most helpful to the media buying decision makers", the Media Matters spokesperson said in an email. "If you're talking to a feminist, and she's giving you, 'Well, men really need to be more sensitive, ' (say) 'no, actually, men don't need to be more sensitive, you just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told'".
