    just a spectacular look all around, here. here's tucker's canned PR defense of this and expect a bunch of advertisers jumping ship to a more stable, less awful looking fox host yet again because they all seem to have chronic foot-in-mouth disease and can never seem to escape their own terrible actions

    I want to be clear that the intention in releasing this now is not some ‘gotcha’ game.’ The purpose is to offer some further insight into his current misogynistic and bigoted commentary on Fox News by offering a look a the kinds of things he was saying when he was thought he was among like-minded audiences.

    This is not one random off-hand comment that Carlson said decades ago. Instead, we’re highlighting patterns. This first one focuses on misogyny mostly and the pattern in the clips echoes the misogyny on his current show.

    Another Fox News host is also under criticism for her comments regarding Ilhan Omar's hijab this week and seemed to imply that her Muslim faith goes against the US Constitution.

    "Your party is not anti-Israel, she is. Think about this. She's not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it's not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won't get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine "indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?"

    Along with the huge New Yorker story last week showing Fox News unabashed pro-Trump slant, any self-respecting "journalist" for Fox News should abandon ship at this point.

    It is clear that the organization is nothing more than white nationalist authoritarian propaganda.
