Britain's Despair and the Media Matters Campaign to Destroy Tucker Carlson

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 covered the story.

The flap comes as Carlson deals with fallout from the disclosure by Media Matters of racist and sexist comments he made on "Bubba the Love Sponge" radio show years ago, before he joined Fox.

"I'd be responsible for buying and repairing the building", he said in the letter, which the Sun Journal quoted. Comedy breaks taboo subjects that release the unspoken into the air in ways that are, dare I say, funny. The co-hosts chimed in: "Good".

WaPo also responds to Carlson's point that Media Matters is partially funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros, arguing that the organization has not been funded by Soros in "many years".

In a monologue Monday, he added that his network stood resolutely behind him. "Toughness is a rare quality in a TV network, and we're grateful for that". Carlson called her "so dumb" and asked, "I mean, if you had a wife that dumb, would it be good or bad?"

Brexit hangs in balance as parliament to vote on May's tweaked deal
Sterling rose on news of the deal but then gave up its gains by mid-morning and was trading $1.3163 at 1040 GMT. Brexit-supporting MPs in May's party had accused her of botching the negotiations with Brussels .


"We can not and will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts from the likes of Moveon.org, Media Matters and Sleeping Giants", Fox News said in response to the AstraZeneca move.

After the 2007 Miss Teen USA contest, Carlson suggested the pageant host had sex with the SC contestant Caitlin Upton using vulgar terms, according to the audio. "I haven't", Carlson claimed. After all, he's just giving the viewers what they want.

Carlson described the contestant, who famously fumbled when answering her 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant question, as "a wounded gazelle, separated from the herd" and suggested that Mario Lopez, the show's host, had slept with the teen. "It's pointless to try to explain how the words were spoken in jest, or taken out of context, or in any case bear no resemblance to what you actually think, or would want for the country".

On his show Monday night, Carlson maintained on his show that he owed nobody an apology. "But we will never bow to the mob, ever", Carlson said.
