Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize for misogynistic remarks

Tucker Carlson host of

Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson is refusing to apologize after Media Matters resurfaced audio and transcripts from a series of appearances he made on the shock jock radio show Bubba the Love Sponge.

Tucker Carlson, who speaks on the programme every week, is heard in the recordings from between 2006 and 2011 defending child marriage and making sexual comments about underage girls.

"Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago", he told Newsweek. Instead, he invited anyone who disagrees with his views as expressed these days on TV to come challenge him on Tucker Carlson Tonight. In 2011, Jeffs was convicted of child sexual assault and sentenced to life in prison.

When the show host describes 14-year-old girls at Mr Carlson's daughter's school sexually experimenting with each other, he says: "If it weren't my daughter I would love that scenario". You're not going to hurt her feelings.

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".

Rightwing talkbag Tucker Carlson has spent his long career - and he's far older than his "preppie villain in a National Lampoon's comedy" vibe suggests - making shocking and some might say awful comments, always without serious repercussions. I'm just telling you that arranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old is not the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her. He later adds that, "The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different".

He says that "what gets women going is arguing with them". Indeed, leftists aren't just unoffended by Carlson's comments - they're excited.

The Fox Newser lost a slew of advertisers from his prime time slot last December for his xenophobic rhetoric and is facing renewed calls for companies to boycott his show. What do you mean in accessory?

I mean I'm talking early teens, illegal young women for older men to marry and Carlson defended it so there's nothing wrong with it. Do you believe what he has said in the past is relevant for today? He didn't - Warren Jeffs didn't marry underaged girls, actually. "Remember, even the most honest apology means nothing to them".

CARLSON: Look, just to make it absolutely clear.
