Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize after sexist remarks resurface

Rather than express the usual ritual of contrition, how about this: I'm on television every weeknight live for an hour.

He responded to widespread backlash Sunday night by telling people to watch his show if they want to know what he thinks.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson responded directly to Media Matters for America's (MMFA) recent attempts to derail his program by unearthing comments he made over a decade ago on a shock-jock radio show.

"This is just the tip of the iceberg", Berman said, referring to Carlson's dismissive thoughts on statutory rape. "I mean, let's be honest about it".

"Well I like you too, and I mean that", Carlson replies.

A co-host on the show replies: "They're animals, dude". You're not going to hurt her feelings.

CARLSON: They love it.

But so far the network is not commenting on the case involving Tucker Carlson, who was called out by a progressive group for a history of misogynistic comments about women. Jeffs, Carlson said, was someone with "a different lifestyle that people find creepy".

"He is accused of facilitating a marriage between a 16-year-old girl and a 27-year-old man". Carlson asked when Jeffs's conviction was brought up. Here's a brief selection from the sampling that media matters is put together so you can see for yourself just how Gross Carlson truly is here. "This report shows exactly who he is and has always been".

Yet when it comes to Warren Jeffs, a convicted pedophile, Carlson was more than willing to stand in support. Vick, a former National Football League quarterback, was sentenced to 23 months in 2007 for dogfighting.

"Well, look, he's never said anything like that to me or around me", Waltz said. But, I mean, you got to give them the benefit of the doubt.

The accusations, that's what they're calling felony bullshit.

"You know what gets women going is arguing with them", Carlson told Bubba the Love Sponge in 2006. "So, here's Trixie, she wants to explore my body a little bit, so hey, let's go insane".

The host also shared his views on women and weakness in a separate interview on the show. He once said, "I love women, but they're extremely primitive, they're basic, they're not that hard to understand".

"Women hate you when they do you wrong and you put up with it", he said.

Of Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan he said, "I feel sorry for unattractive women".

The audio from Media Matters swiftly went viral.
