LISTEN: Media Matters Posts Audio of Tucker Carlson Saying ‘I Love Women But They Are Extremely Primitive, They’re Basic’

Classy as always.

The recording sparked outrage. Two hashtags, #FireTuckerCarlson and #BoycottTuckerCarlson immediately began to trend. The latter targeted Carlson’s advertisers, which include Capital One, Coravin, and Outback Steakhouse.

Fox News has declined to comment on the scandal and Carlson has not apologized for his remarks, though he issued a statement via his official Twitter account.

“Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago,” he said in part. He added: “Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why.”

Angelo Carusone, the head of Media Matters, addressed Carlson directly and explained why the organization released the recording.

“The reason we released this is precisely because the things you say on your Fox News show echo the misogyny displayed in those clips,” Carusone said. “We were actually helping people better understand just how vile your current Fox News show is by showing what that worldview really looks like.”
