Media Matters of America has uncovered a shocking conversation of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. In it, Carlson was caught saying several controversial things that might cause him problems with the network’s already complicated image.
Carlson, who was brought on to Fox News in 2009, attacked women in droves. He blasted Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis as “c*nty” and Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “the biggest white whores in America.” He blasted Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington a “pig” and noted women love being told “to be quiet and kind of do what you’re told.”
The worst, however, came when Carlson spoke about having sex with young girls.
He claimed underage marriage is not “the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child. … The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different.”
Fox News has been fighting off accusations of sexual harassment that took down Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly.

Fire holds off Hong Kong police at campus as democracy protests escalate
A large fire held off an apparent police advance on the Hong Kong campus where hundreds of pro-democracy protesters were holed up early Monday, hours after officers warned they may use "live rounds" if confronted by deadly weapons in a dangerous escalation of the near six-month crisis engulfing the city.
Protests have rocked the global financial hub since June, with many in the city of 7.5 million people venting fury at eroding freedoms under Chinese rule.
China has repeatedly warned that it will not tolerate the dissent, and there have been concerns that Beijing could send in troops to put an end to the spiralling unrest.
Ambassador Sondland was updating Trump officials on progress of ‘push for investigations’ — including Mulvaney
The Wall Street Journal obtained emails showing that ahead of President Donald Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ambassador Gordon Sondland was updating officials on the strive for investigations.
Chief of staff and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was one of the main points of contact, and he replied to the email saying he would schedule the call with Zelensky.
“I talked to Zelensky just now. He is prepared to receive Potus’ call. Will assure him that he intends to run a fully transparent investigation and will ‘turn over every stone,’” Sondland wrote in an email on July 19.
White House desperately scheduling things for Trump to do so he won’t watch the impeachment hearings
Given President Donald Trump worked to intimidate witnesses in real-time during the hearings on the impeachment inquiry last week, the White House is desperately searching for something that can keep him busy.
Axios reported Sunday, the presidential daily schedule will be designed to keep the president distracted with their own counter-programming.
"Trump's schedule for the coming week shows him governing," Axios reported. He'll be promoting jobs and talking about things like "art and culture."
