Conservatives Jump to Tucker Carlson's Defense

Fox News' Tucker Carlson Calls Iraqis “Semiliterate Primitive Monkeys” in Surfaced Recording

Surfaced Audio Shows Carlson In Misogynistic Rants

Tucker Carlson is losing advertisers-again.

"I'm 100 percent [Murdoch's] bitch", Carlson said.

McLaughlin added that the "idea that Fox News or Tucker Carlson would apologize to Media Matters is absurd on its face", citing the years-long feud between the organizations.

The confusion surrounding Carlson's "vacation" comes after Media Matters for America released audio clips and transcripts of the conservative TV host in which he can be heard dismissing the crimes of cult leader and convicted child sex offender Warren Jeffs. "She's like a wounded gazelle and separated from the herd". Carlson said the girl would "probably be a pretty good wife".

It's "part of the Roger Ailes, Fox News brand that you never apologize", McLaughlin said. "I had some very dark moments where I thought about committing suicide", she said.

"Fox News is behind us, as they have been since the very first day", Carlson said.




The heat on Fox News comes as the network ramps up its efforts to court advertisers and alleviate concerns about recent controversies, which also include comments by host Jeanine Pirro that questioned the patriotism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) because she wears a hijab.

"We know there is a lot of noise out there, but the voice of a few shouldn't prevent you from marketing your brands to millions of consumers who actually buy your products and services", Marianne Gambelli, the network's head of advertising, said at a presentation to sponsors, per the Los Angeles Times.

Several companies have pulled advertising from Carlson's show, according to Bloomberg News. On Sunday, audio was posted of Carlson calling rape shield laws "totally unfair", defending underage sexual encounters if the minor is a male and the adult is a woman, and describing women as "extremely primitive".

On his show Monday night, Carlson maintained on his show that he owed nobody an apology.

A Fox News spokesman did not respond to a request for comment on Carlson's remarks about the Miss Teen USA contestant. "But we will never bow to the mob, ever", Carlson said.
