Tucker Carlson Addresses Criticism After Calling Women ‘Extremely Primitive’ in Resurfaced Audio

Tucker Carlson Addresses Criticism After Calling Women ‘Extremely Primitive’ in Resurfaced Audio

In the years before Carlson became a Fox host, he called into the "Bubba the Love Sponge" radio show and delighted the shock jock by saying all sorts of crude things.

Media Matters Sunday night published a series of unearthed comments he made on a radio show for several years, including during the time he was working for Fox News.

He did not "express the usual ritual contrition" but publicised his show and asked his opponents to come on as guests.

"Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why", he said in his statement.

-April 4, 2006: Carlson downplays the molestation of a 13-year-old boy abused by his teacher, saying that female teachers who rape their underage male students are "doing a service to all 13-year-old girls by taking the pressure off". I, I don't use that word because I love for Tucker Carlson tonight on MSNBC I girl that comes across kind of contact, but she does, I mean I heard her, I mean, I know I'm a Brent Fan, so, okay.

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

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

Mr Erdogan would do well to heed the warning, as well as the possibility of United States sanctions. The comments come as part of this week's back-and-forth between Ankara and Washington on the issue.

CARLSON: He's in prison because he's weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy. But what's striking about these clips is that it comes off as so natural and normal for him; it's like you're getting a chance to see who Tucker Carlson really is and what those ideas really mean.

"Carlson said underage marriage is not the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child". The rapist in this case has made a lifelong commitment to women take care of the person.

"You know what? In my opinion, you know what gest women going is arguing with them". Carlson was a regular on Bubba's show back then.

Spin reached out to Fox News for comment, but reps did not immediately respond to our request.

The Daily Beast reports clips include Carlson calling Martha Stewart's daughter, TV host Alexis Stewart, "very c--y" and in need of a "spanking". He also said, "there's no Canadian woman that you'd want to pay to sleep with".

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

"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.
