Fox News' Tucker Carlson Calls Iraqis "Semiliterate Primitive Monkeys" in Surfaced Recording

Fox News censured host Jeanine Pirro this week after she implied the head covering worn by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution.

"Fox News is behind us, as they have been since the very first day", Carlson said.

After his show on Tuesday, Carlson's Fox News colleague Sean Hannity commended him for fending off his many detractors, adding that Carlson had delayed a vacation to defend himself on air (though, later, a Fox News spokesman said Hannity misspoke and that Carlson was always scheduled to host his show this week). But it's about to become the centerpiece of a new Fox corporation that will be spun off from a merger with Walt Disney Co. later this month.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson called Miss South Carolina Teen USA, who was a 17-year-old girl then, "appealing" and "dumb" after her appearance in the Miss Teen USA pageant in 2007, according to audio from a radio show shared by Media Matters and NowThis News.

A defiant Carlson opened his show Monday night railing against the liberal mob.

21st Century Fox slated to complete its $71 billion sale of entertainment assets - including the 20th Century Fox studio - to Disney on March 20. Oddly enough, in 2016, Carlson said that the KKK and Nazi Party don't really even exist anyway.

United Kingdom lawmakers to vote on requesting delay as Brexit day nears
Other EU nations had urged British politicians to seize the chance to back the deal and ensure an orderly departure. If we don't check out tonight, we may never leave", tweeted Conservative legislator Bob Seely.

"This isn't about Media Matters, Sleeping Giants, or activists".

The pressure seems to work on some companies.

"I'm 100 percent [Murdoch's] bitch", Carlson said.

Fox News said it was looking forward to its advertiser presentation and wouldn't be swayed by the campaign against Carlson.

Angelo Carusone, the president of the progressive media watchdog site Media Matters, responded to the unearthing of his controversial old blog posts by claiming he wrote them to "parody... a right-wing blowhard".

Carlson had 54 advertisers in the same week past year, but he lost a number of them in December after he claimed that immigrants made America "dirtier". In December, several advertisers fled after Carlson said that immigrants make "our country poorer and dirtier and more divided" before juxtaposing pictures of piles of garbage with migrants.
