Trouble For Tucker: Advertising Plunges After Racist, Sexist Comments Resurface

  • Tucker Carlson

"She's vulnerable. She's like a wounded gazelle separated from the herd".

Fox News has continued to stand behind Carlson, saying it would not allow voices to be "censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts" from leftist organizations.

In 2007, Miss South Carolina Teen USA Caitlin Upton was widely ridiculed for an answer she gave during the pageant to a question about why a fifth of Americans couldn't locate the country on a map. "The normal laws for that kind of thing don't apply to him".

"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. Carlson said the girl would "probably be a pretty good wife".

Later, Carlson said, without evidence, that there was a 90-percent chance that pageant host Mario Lopez had sex with Upton after the show.

But whether the additional language would be enough to win over a divided House of Commons was unclear. Mr Varadkar was also asked about a possible extension to the UK's departure date from the EU.

Carlson refused to cave into leftists demands for him to step down from Fox News though, saying anyone who disapproves of his comments is welcome to disagree with him on his show. Upton told New York Magazine in 2015 that she suffered for years following that moment, revealing the humiliation almost led her to suicide.

"She's so dumb", Carlson said on the recording, an old interview on the "Bubba the Love Sponge Show", uncovered by the nonprofit watchdog Media Matters for America and first published by NowThis News.

"We've always apologized when we're wrong, and we'll continue to do that".

On Sunday, Media Matters released clips of Carlson making several misogynistic comments while defending child rape. "I had some very dark moments where I thought about committing suicide", she said. Laura, you. Me. Me, Laura, you. Carlson is firing back and refusing to "bow" to the media "mob". Fox News covered the story.

According to The Daily Beast, in the newest audio recording Carlson talks about approaching the teen contestant in the bathroom: "I was thinking about tapping my foot next to her stall", he said.
