Tucker Carlson backlash jeopardizes Fox News ad revenue

Tucker Carlson backlash jeopardizes Fox News ad revenue

This is Carlson speaking in 2006. Oddly enough, in 2016, Carlson said that the KKK and Nazi Party don't really even exist anyway.

On Tuesday, The Intercept published a new recording of Carlson talking about Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch.

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. In the tapes, Carlson also makes a series of sexist, misogynist and cruel remarks about the young woman, who was a contestant in a 2007 Miss Teen USA competition.

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.

But Media Matters for America President Angelo Carusone said Carlson's comments have nothing to do with Media Matters and everything to do with his character.

Samsung Galaxy S10 H1 Sales To Trump S9 Line
Some of the features of the Galaxy S10 include Samsung's best screen yet, the world's first Dynamic AMOLED display. However, while information for the gadget is scarce, there's no harm in making some well thought out conjectures.

A total of 34 companies-by Media Matters' count-have cut ties in recent months as a result of numerous comments Carlson has made on his show and elsewhere.

"I do think he's right when he says that if he apologizes, nothing ends, and nobody's interested in his apology", Ham said on CNN's "New Day".

"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.

In other recordings released since Sunday, Carlson joked about child rape and made a number of racist comments, including saying Iraqis were "semiliterate primitive monkeys", Rolling Stone reports. He also spoke crassly of immigrants and posed a racist question about Barack Obama's identity as a black man. "We will never bow to the mob, ever, no matter what".

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.
