New evidence has just been uncovered that exposes Media Matters President Angelo Carusone as a massive hypocrite. Carusone has been leading a crusade against Tucker Carlson through his watchdog organization, Media Matters.
Media Matters originally accused Carlson of making derogatory statements about women on a radio “shock jock” program over a decade ago.
According to The Daily Caller, Carusone “posted a lengthy diatribe in November 2005 about a Bangladeshi man who was robbed by “a gang of transvestites.” He continued his transphobic rant by blasting the police for not warning the public to “stay away from tranny bars”.
In a separate incident, Carusone flippantly used the ethnic slur “Jap” to refer to an incident of sexual assault on a female Japanese basketball team.
Carusone didn’t stop there. In another 2005 blog post, Carusone used anti-Semitic language to refer to his Jewish boyfriend. He wrote in the blog post that his boyfriend leaned conservative “as a result of his possession of several bags of Jewish gold.”
Carusone has been leading the charge calling for Carlson’s resignation and the destruction of Fox News. The Media Matters president’s own words have finally caught up with him. It’s time to hold Angelo Carusone to his own standard.
