Tucker Carlson on radio interview: 'I feel sorry for unattractive women'

Fox News host Tucker Carlson refused to apologize after clips from old radio interviews in which Carlson made controversial remarks about women and child rape were circulated on social media Sunday.

Media Matters, a self-described “progressive media watchdog,” published clips and transcripts from appearances Carlson made between 2006 and 2011 on a popular shock-jock radio program called “Bubba the Love Sponge.”

In two appearances, Carlson jokingly downplayed the crimes of cult leader – and convicted child sex offender – Warren Jeffs. In other clips, he calls women “extremely primitive,” says he feels “sorry for unattractive women,” uses the c-word to describe a woman, calls one woman a “pig” and refers to two other women as “whores.”

During one of the discussions about Jeffs, who was accused, among other things, of arranging marriages between underage girls and adult men, Carlson said what he had done was not as bad as a violent assault.

    The more trouble you cause, the higher the ratings. The higher the ratings, the higher the ad revenue. The higher the ad revenue, the more you get in the envelope. Pretty basic formula. Nothing whatsoever to do with truth, viewpoint, or good gov't.

    You guys need to take a seat next time you think you can ruin a person's life for nothing. I agree with him Feeling sorry for unattractive women. It's because they got shamed for their looks, what they did, and negative things about them in general. Tucker is not a sexist, he just likes telling the truth and you guys just can't handle it. Probably some comments, probably he's joking a little.

    I really dont care what he said once on a shock jock comedy show.
    Years ago a lot of people said a lot more "unacceptable" things and it wasn't outrage fuel.
    The left wants a world that eventually will incriminate EVERYONE, eventually it gets to them as well.
    This is a leftist attempted takedown. It's obvious. Google media matters.
    He absolutely should not apologize to insane SJWs.
    No one actually wants to live in this insane PC world they are so bent on creating.
    Literally, if this bothers you, you cant handle it or are "literally shaking" over this…dont watch him anymore.

    Long live tucker Carlson ! Not because of the comments that he said 10 years ago , but because he is the only main stream news personality to really delve into current issues , including our current culture war . He is on Fox , but many of his views are controversial even there . He represents the real American . And he is the only show I watch on cable television because of that. He refuses to bow down to outrage mobs . And surprisingly Fox has his back . And that is rare . Maybe finally we will see more celebrities and politicians standing their ground when activist organizations attack based on a couple sentences out of 10 years of content . Just my thoughts

    Ohh noooooo my goodness, who cares? Turn it around, make it a woman talking about a man, and you have the view of every feminist on earth. Which is fine with you I'm sure. Tucker Carlson is awesome, and I look forward to hearing anything he has to say. Don't apologize to these ninnies, Tucker!

    Thumbs up for Tucker. Don't fold Mr. Carlson because you represent a lot of us. Don't give in to those pampered Safe Room Leftists. Hey! Here's an idea, stick to your guns and run for President. I'll gladly contribute some of my hard-earned. Send up a trial-balloon, see what happens. You seem to be in the right place at exactly the right time.

    So in what context was this said? What was being discussed? Were sentences cut short? Is someone trying to create a false narrative from these quotes? Smells awfully fishy and smacks of someone’s agenda to destroy tucker.
