The DailyCaller.com's Tucker Carlson and Fox News host Greta Van Susteren went head-to-head on her show in a shouting match that turned ugly. Ironically, they were arguing about violence against women (video below).
Susteren called Carlson a “pig” and accused him of promoting violence against women after he reported Mike Tyson’s X-rated comments (audio here) about the rumor that former NBA star Glen Rice had an affair with Sarah Palin before she was married.
Carlson explained: “Our view was if he had said those words about any other woman, about Hillary Clinton, if he said them about the first lady, Madeleine Albright, they would be on the front page of The New York Times. Because it was Sarah Palin he was attacking, they were being ignored by news outlets that don’t like Sarah Palin.”
Susteren stated: “I think you are lying, Tucker, about something. What was written here is not journalism, it is glorifying, let me finish, it glorifies violence on women."
"It is prima facie repulsive. Do you think we are endorsing this?” Carlson asked.
“Tucker, you’re not a first offender with me. I gave you the benefit of the doubt when six months earlier, you wrote that MILF comment (about Palin)," Susteren shouted.
“These are the words of Mike Tyson. Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist. You had Mike Tyson on your show in April of this year and you asked him nothing about his sexual assault, nothing about his rape, nothing about his attacks against women. You asked him questions like, ‘How long have you been a vegan?’ Then, you sent out a photograph of yourself smiling and laughing with Mike Tyson,” Carlson shot back.
