In a series of segments on Bubba the Love Sponge Show between 2006 and 2011, Carlson discussed issues such as underage women, statutory rape, and polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs, who was sentenced in 2011 to life in prison for raping a 12-year-old girl.

Carlson won't apologize for the comments, instead saying in a statement posted to Twitter that Media Matters caught him "saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago".

"The reason we released this is precisely because the things you say on your Fox News show echo the misogyny displayed in those clips", Carusone tweeted.

And some even came to the conclusion that combing through years worth of radio interviews would be a daunting task for someone who's a "loser". He was convicted of felony child sexual assault and arranging marriages for adult males and underaged girls. "A$3 rranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old is not the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her", he says on the tape. You know, she didn't.

Last month, he also spent three nights in jail after he was charged in four sex-abuse cases and failed to post bond right away. Kelly and his ex now have three children together, Robert, Jay, and Joann, who are 17, 19, and 21 respectively.

On the tapes, the TV host said that Warren Jeffs, who is now serving a life sentence after being convicted of felony child sexual assault for aiding an underage marriage, "is in prison because he's weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy".

"Carlson said underage marriage is not the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child".

The comments sparked new calls for an advertising boycott of Carlson's show.

In the recordings Mr Carlson talks to the host, Todd Clem (known as Bubba the Love Sponge), as well as his anonymous co-host, about a range of current affairs.

I love them", he told King , though he acknowledged they've been "pressured" to not have a relationship with him. "Say, if you live with me, I'm the king of the castle, and you're the queen of the castle", the singer said.

Carlson also advocated arguing with women in order to "get them going", and said feminists need to be told to "be quiet and kind of do what you're told", and added that women are "extremely primitive" and "basic". Here's a brief selection from the sampling that media matters is put together so you can see for yourself just how Gross Carlson truly is here.

CARLSON: What do you mean an accessory? He also said, "there's no Canadian woman that you'd want to pay to sleep with". Uh, at the beginning when these, uh, clips surface during the 2006 time he was working for MSNBC starting in 2009, he started working for Fox News. He didn't - Warren Jeffs didn't marry underaged girls, actually. One: Is this guy one of the top 10 most unsafe people in America?

"Look, just to make it absolutely clear".
