Media Matters for America, a liberal advocacy group, posted excerpts from various broadcasts by Tampa-based radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge a decade ago.
During various shows, Carlson made negative, often misogynistic remarks about some celebrities and appeared to defend Warren Jeffs, the religious leader who had been placed on the FBI’s most-wanted fugitive list on charges he had arranged marriages between his adult male followers and underage girls.
The comments appear to be made while Carlson was working as a host for MSNBC or as a contributor for Fox News Channel, according to Variety.
During his radio calls, Carlson made pejorative statement about Arianna Huffington, Britney Spears and Alexis Stewart, Martha Stewart’s daughter, according to transcripts posted by Media Matters. In a statement aimed directly at Carlson posted Sunday night via Twitter, Angelo Carusone, president of the organization, said the group released the radio conversations “because the things you say on your Fox News show echo the misogyny displayed in those clips.”
