Meet the 24-year-old who unearthed old clips of Tucker Carlson making racist and misogynistic comments
Madeline Peltz, who works the night shift for the liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America, is tasked with watching and analyzing a lot of Tucker Carlson's Fox News show. "After many Carlson-watching hours, the 24-year-old researcher developed a working theory, which she outlined on the nonprofit’s website: that Carlson is using his platform on Fox News to introduce white-nationalist ideas to the mainstream, making him a uniquely prominent 'mouthpiece for white supremacy,'" reports Eli Rosenberg. "Peltz dug into his recent past and discovered a trove of appearances he made on shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge’s radio show between 2006 and 2011. She found a series of misogynistic, racist and homophobic remarks Carlson made, the audio of which Media Matters published this week."
