Media Matters President Under Fire for Racist Blog Posts

(Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight")

By | Wednesday, 13 March 2019 10:56 PM

The president of Media Matters is under fire after old blog posts he wrote containing racial slurs and other forms of hate resurfaced this week.

The Daily Caller published portions of the posts written by Angelo Carusone. In them, he made several anti-Semitic comments, referred to Japanese people with a racial slur, and made fun of Bangladeshis.

Carusone also appeared to make fun of cross-dressers and said the late Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., who was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, was one of his favorite public figures.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized Carusone and Media Matters on his show Tuesday and Wednesday night. The organization took aim at Carlson over the weekend by publishing derogatory comments he made on a radio show between 2006 and 2011.

According to Fortune, Carlson has already lost a handful of sponsors because of his past remarks that were made public on Sunday. Media Matters claims Carlson has lost a total of 34 sponsors in recent months because of comments he has made.

In one of Carusone's posts, he commented on a news story about a women's basketball coach in Japan who was accused of sexually and physically abusing his players.

"Lighten up j*ps," Carusone wrote.

Carusone also referred to his boyfriend as "jewry," adding in another post that his boyfriend had "several bags of Jewish gold."
