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

Surfaced Audio Shows Carlson In Misogynistic Rants Fox News' Tucker Carlson Calls Iraqis “Semiliterate Primitive Monkeys” in Surfaced Recording

Caitlin Upton, the contestant Carlson is referring to the in audio, told the New York Magazine in 2015 that the humiliation from the pageant nearly led her to suicide.

An analysis by Samba TV found that Carlson had 39 advertisers on the Monday before the tapes uncovered by Media Matters made big headlines, and just 14 advertisers the day after, TheWrap reported. Fox News representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the Miss Teen USA audio.

According to the media watchdog organization Media Matters, Carlson repeatedly called into the popular radio program Bubba the Love Sponge between 2006 and 2011 and let loose with sexist and misogynistic language-often at the expense of well-known female figures, including Arianna Huffington and Elena Kagan, a then-Supreme Court nominee and now an associate justice of the Supreme Court. However, the Times added that Carlson's show was bucking that trend; its ad revenue plunged 45 percent in the fourth quarter as boycott calls grew over his anti-immigrant comments.

The answer from the show's co-hosts was a resounding "good".

The unearthed audio is the latest in a series of tumultuous revelations that began Sunday, when Media Matters released audio of Carlson degrading women and flippantly discussing child rape in old radio interviews. "I haven't", Carlson claimed.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Could Support 5G Network Connectivity
This brings the new interface that's running on the Galaxy S10 and it also carries the new February 2019 Android security update. And after evaluating the kernel code in Samsung's Galaxy S10 , XDA Developers discovered a reference to a "davinci5G".

Except here's the thing: No one wants that kind of faux contrition from Carlson, because the words were not taken out of context, and more importantly, they don't seem to be that far off from the person he still presents himself to be.

Carlson described the contestant, who famously fumbled when answering her 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant question, as "a wounded gazelle, separated from the herd" and suggested that Mario Lopez, the show's host, had slept with the teen. "If you want to know what I think, you can watch".

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

On Tuesday, Carlson praised Fox News for supporting him and stood by his refusal to apologize, vowing "we will never bow to the mob ー ever".
