In old clips brought to light by Media Matters, the Fox News host suggested underage marriage is not as serious as forcible child rape. He also described women as "extremely primitive" in the clips from 2006 to 2011 from the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show. Carlson responded with a statement last night, saying: "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." Fox News has yet to comment on Carlson's past comments.
