According to The Daily Beast, in the newest audio recording Carlson talks about approaching the teen contestant in the bathroom: "I was thinking about tapping my foot next to her stall", he said. It was timed to coincide with Fox's first-ever sales meeting with advertisers on Wednesday, March 12, 2019.

The network is navigating controversies beyond Carlson.

Fox News did not respond to Fortune's request for comment.

Tucker Carlson is losing advertisers-again.

The pressure seems to work on some companies. "Media Matters caught me saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago", Carlson wrote on Twitter.

Fox News said it was looking forward to its advertiser presentation and wouldn't be swayed by the campaign against Carlson.

Tucker will keep banging that drum, as long as Fox News keeps employing him.

In the clips, Carlson makes sexist remarks and inappropriate comments about underage girls ー he even defends Warren Jeffs, the former leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, who was sentenced to life in prison on two felony counts of child sexual assault.
