Fox News host Tucker Carlson found himself in hot water late Sunday after Media Matters, the far-left progressive “media watchdog” that routinely targets Fox News, unearthed offensive comments Carlson made about women and child rape on a radio show between 2006 and 2011.

Carlson quickly responded to the growing online outrage — and he did not capitulate.

Media Matters highlighted 27 separate instances in which Carlson appeared on the “Bubba The Love Sponge” radio show, “a popular shock jock radio program where he spoke with the hosts about a variety of cultural and political topics in sometimes vulgar terms.”

More from Media Matters:

During those conversations, Carlson diminished the actions of Warren Jeffs, then on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list for his involvement in arranging illegal marriages between adults and underage girls, talked about sex and young girls, and defended statutory rape.

Carlson, who was hired by Fox News in 2009, also used sexist language to talk about women, including then-co-workers at NBC and public figures. He referred to Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis Stewart as “c**ty,” called journalist Arianna Huffington a “pig,” and labeled Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “the biggest white whores in America.” He also said that women enjoy being told to “be quiet and kind of do what you’re told” and that they are “extremely primitive.”

Between 2006 and 2011, Carlson reportedly called into the “Bubba The Love Sponge” show for about an hour each week.

After Media Matters published the radio audio and accompanying transcripts, which retained the context of each comment, the left pounced on Carlson, calling for a boycott of his Fox News show or for Fox News to fire Carlson altogether.

By Monday morning, “#BoycottTuckerCarlson” and “#FireTuckerCarlson” were the highest trending topics on Twitter.

Rather than capitulate to the online outrage mob, Carlson stood his ground, characterizing his comments as “naughty” while challenging detractors to confront him on his Fox News show. Not surprisingly, the statement only emboldened Carlson’s detractors.

“Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago. Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I’m on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why,” Carlson wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

      Yup. Meanwhile, the Left pushes Islam, Cult of pedofilia. Because Mohammed married a 6-yr old.

      Personally, I’m so sorry that women are in the government. They are destroying our country with their vinictiveness & double standards.

      Sahih Muslim 8:3310 ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.

        Islam is the Cult of hypocrisy.

        One can search youtube for the video “What is thighing MUST SEE!!!” to learn how infants are given in temporary marriages of pleasure. Sodomy’s OK, just not actual intercourse. Though if intercourse IS performed & the infant child is injured, the man must take care of her for her life (she doesn’t count as one of the four wives, though).

        This site can also be searched for “man boy sex:”

    Who cares? Every adult on earth has written, spoken, thought, or done something that they would not necessarily want anyone else to know about. Note to Media Matters: Boring and lame.

    Fox News if you want any viewers, then stand up and defend your news commentators. It’s very obvious the
    Insane Neo-Nazi Democrats are attempting to shut down all differences of opinion. They do not want people to hear or get information that disagrees with their Destroy
    America Agenda! Democrats are using the playbook straight out of Hitler’s Archives!
    Straight Nazi Move On Freedom Of Speech!!!
    Get some Balls Fox Network and Fight Back!

      Yes, and FOX, stop caving to the left. And shame on you for condemning Jeanine Pirro. She didn’t say anything that wasn’t true.

    I warned people 2 weeks ago that rumor was the Communist Democrats were going to start trying to shut down Fox News. Communist Democrats want to shut down any information or view that Contradicts the Lies they are trying to push on the American People.

    This should scare Americans, Hitler shut down all contradicting news & information,
    From the German & Jewish People.
    What the Democrats are doing is using Mobs & Force to
    Silence all Conservative Free Speech, where are the
    People we elected in Congress????

    People better start getting cash out of your bank accounts
    buy ammunition, guns, survival supplies!!
    The Democrats are going to start affecting our financial system so it will tank by time of the 2020 Election!
    Their strong influence will make Liberal stores reduce
    Inventory of Guns & Ammunition! We will not be able to buy any due to short supplies. Their plan to attack any conservatives that fight back is to use data from
    Phones, Social Media to limit our ability to get financial loans!!
    This is Serious War People!!! Communist Democrats
    Intend to force us into submission in other ways than at the ballot box!!
    Get serious, don’t blow this off as conspiracy theory!

    I warned people 2 weeks ago when MSM started openly attacking Fox News on their network shows, that the
    Communist Democrats are starting to try to shut down
    Fox News Network!
    They are starting to attack Tucker, Hannity, Lou Dobbs,
    Laura Ingram, Judge Jeanie and every other news commentator of Fox News. They want to destroy this network, because it has freedom of speech to contradict the Communist Crap & Lies Democrats are trying to push
    On American People!

    Communist Democrats are at War with Conservative America and they intend to force us into submission.
    If they can’t win at the ballot box this is how far they will go to get power:
    They will go as far as using our personal data ( thanks
    Google & Facebook ) to limit our ability to get financial loans, limit gun & ammuntion supplies in the stores. If they can’t get gun laws passed they will destroy the availability of supplies of guns. People this is not a scare tactic conspiracy theory, this is Real!
    Get cash! Get Guns & Ammunition stockpiled now!!

    Fox News better grow a pair and stand up for their people. If not, they soon won’t have a place on television anymore. The left never stops. They have been at this for decades, and if they don’t win what they want the first time, they will come back over and over till they do get their way. Stand Tough Fox!

    Okay, will someone please tell me what he said/did that was SOO wrong? Tucker points out the fallacies of the left and right on his show. Quite entertaining when he knocks heads with some liberal know-it-all.
