Tucker Carlson apologizes for cursing out guest (Details).

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is apologizing for a recently leaked expletive-laden rant, but not for the sentiment behind it.

Carlson on his show Wednesday responded to a viral video showing an unaired interview he conducted with historian Rutger Bregman, which went south when Bregman suggested Carlson’s opinions were being influenced by Fox News executive chairman Rupert Murdoch and that he is a “millionaire funded by billionaires.” This prompted Carlson to call him a “tiny brain” and a “moron” and telling him to “go f–k yourself.”

Carlson said Wednesday that it was “too much” when Bregman suggested his “corporate masters tell me what to say.” So, Carlson said, he “did what I try never to do on this show: I was rude.” At the same time, Carlson argued what he said was “entirely accurate” and that the only reason the interview didn’t air was that he cursed during it. He even encouraged viewers to go watch the clip.
