After the initial audio release, Carlson refused to apologize or, as he put it, "express the usual ritual contrition".
"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 also described women as "extremely primitive", and used words such as "pig" and the c-word.
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.
At one point in the audio clip, Tucker claims the teen would "probably be a good wife". "He gets a pass".
Carlson's newly unearthed comments sparked immediate and intense backlash.
In 2007, Miss South Carolina Teen USA Caitlin Upton was widely ridiculed for an answer she gave during the pageant to a question about why a fifth of Americans couldn't locate the country on a map.
"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. I mean, if you had a wife that dumb.
In 2015, Upton told NY magazine that her humiliation almost led her to suicide.
"She's like, she's vulnerable", he said.
This audio is the latest in a series of damning revelations that began Sunday, when Media Matters first published clips of Carlson degrading women and defending statutory rape in old radio interviews. "Fox News is behind us", he said on the show. The media watchdog has since released more offensive audio, but Carlson refuses to apologize or condemn his previous remarks. "Toughness is a rare quality in a TV network, and we're grateful for that".
