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.
The recordings hail from between 2006 and 2011, when Carlson used to regularly call into a program entitled Bubba the Love Sponge, a shock jock show that managed to coax out the parts of Carlson's brain he usually knew better to hide. "Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I'm on television every weeknight live for an hour", Carlson continued.
And some even came to the conclusion that combing through years worth of radio interviews would be a daunting task for someone who's a "loser". If she's accusing other people of nonconsensual sex, it's a little more complicated than if some, you know, housewife claims she was pulled off the street and raped.
There are growing calls also for those disgusted by Carlson's remarks to boycott advertisers, with activists tweeting out names of those they say pay Fox big money to get their products in front of viewers.
He didn't. Warren Jeffs didn't marry under age girls. "You just need to be quiet and kind of do what you're told".
Carlson responded: "If it weren't my daughter, I would love that scenario". Carlson also suggested underage marriage is not as serious as forcible rape and called rape-shield laws "totally unfair". The Fox commentator is under fire for past audio clips that have surfaced where Carlson makes a number of comments that are drawing ire across the nation.
On the tapes, the TV host said that Warren Jeffs, who is now serving a life sentence after being convicted of felony child sexual assault for aiding an underage marriage, "is in prison because he's weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy".
CARLSON: What do you mean an accessory? He was on the FBI's 10 most wanted list for arranging child marriages. He's like got some weird religious call where he thinks it's okay to, you know, marry underage girls, but he didn't do it. For one thing, that's not true.
TUCKER CARLSON: Well, actually, he's not in prison for that. Warren Jeffs is now a convicted sexual predator behind bars on two counts of child sexual abuse. He is accused of facilitating the marriage between a 16 year old girl and a 27 year old man. He made the remarks during his tenure at MSNBC (2005-2008) and his tenure at Fox (2009-present).
