Fox News' Tucker Carlson Torn Apart By Samantha Bee

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. AstraZeneca said on its Twitter account that it no longer advertises on Carlson's show and won't advertise during that hour in the future. Carlson offered to buy the garage for $30,000, and said Fox "has agreed to install an advanced, broadcast-level studio if we get it".

"Don't you think - I mean if you had a wife that dumb, would it be good or bad?" WaPo, however, claimed Carlson believes he is the victim of the young woman who found the tapes and sought to compare Carlson's relative influence to her.

A total of 34 companies-by Media Matters' count-have cut ties in recent months as a result of numerous comments Carlson has made on his show and elsewhere.

Reporter Steve Collins, who has been covering the story for the Sun Journal, told Poynter that Carlson was polite during an interview and came off as more sad than angry. 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.

"This isn't about Media Matters, Sleeping Giants, or activists". "And that's what advertisers are rejecting". Comedy breaks taboo subjects that release the unspoken into the air in ways that are, dare I say, funny.

Fox News said it was looking forward to its advertiser presentation and wouldn't be swayed by the campaign against Carlson. "This is actually a large part of why Donald Trump was elected, even though I'm not a huge fan and often disagree with Tucker Carlson".
