The heat on Fox News comes as the network ramps up its efforts to court advertisers and alleviate concerns about recent controversies, which also include comments by host Jeanine Pirro that questioned the patriotism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) because she wears a hijab.
She noted that none of the scandalous Carlson audio tapes weren't hard to find, but her researchers did discover that Carlson's name is an anagram of Ol' Cracker Nuts. Fox News representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the Miss Teen USA audio.
"Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago", Carlson said in a statement.
"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".
"What brings in the money is the opinion hosts, they're the people that bag 4 million viewers on a really good night", McLaughlin said, adding that the timing could not be worse for Fox News with its "first big event with advertisers" scheduled for Wednesday morning. He attempted to fight back with Media Matters' own tactics, digging up old blog posts from the organization's president Angelo Carusone that Carlson says prove Carusone to be "an enthusiastic bigot". On Monday, he said his network supports him.Читайте также: New Italian law requires students to be vaccinated or face repercussions
He also commented on the appearance of a 2007 Miss USA contestant, Caitlin Upton, calling her "appealing" and "dumb", and saying she would "probably be a pretty good wife".
BRYANT POND, Maine (AP) - Fox News host Tucker Carlson said he's scuttling plans for a TV studio near his vacation home in rural Maine because of publicity. This is Carlson speaking in 2006. "I haven't", Carlson claimed. But it's about to become the centerpiece of a new Fox corporation that will be spun off from a merger with Walt Disney Co. later this month.
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. NerdWallet Inc., the personal finance company, said it hasn't advertised on Carlson's show since the end of previous year.
"You know who else thinks Tucker is a white supremacist?"При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
