Conservatives Jump to Tucker Carlson's Defense

The clips of Carlson objectifying and demeaning a teenage girl are only the latest in what has been a torrent of unearthed audio of the his appearances on the shock jock's radio show show, which took place weekly from 2006 to 2011.

A Fox News spokesman did not respond to a request for comment on Carlson's remarks about the Miss Teen USA contestant.

Fox News had $1.09 billion in ad revenue a year ago, a 7.2 percent increase over 2017.

And now people's calls for advertisers to cut ties with Carlson and his Fox News show appear to be working.

Fox News has continued to stand behind Carlson, saying it would not allow voices to be "censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts" from leftist organizations.

Newly released recordings of Tucker Carlson - the third set made public in as many days - feature the prominent Fox News host joking about having sex with a teenage beauty pageant contestant. Fox News has previously said it believes Carlson is being targeted for political reasons.

The pressure seems to work on some companies.

"I gotta be honest, I thought she was kind of appealing", Carlson said as he talked about what South Carolina's age of consent was.

Threatening to boycott advertisers is nothing new, but it still isn't clear how effective it is.

An analysis by Samba TV found that Carlson had 39 advertisers on the Monday before the tapes uncovered by Media Matters made big headlines, and just 14 advertisers the day after, TheWrap reported.

"I'm, like, trying to help", Hannity told Carlson, before bringing up their colleague Laura Ingraham, whose show lost advertisers after she mocked a school shooting survivor. 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.
