Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson got into a heated debate with the hosts of Outnumbered about how equal pay played into the New York Times’ decision to fire executive editor Jill Abramson, which Carlson called, “greatest story ever.”
Carlson stepped into it almost immediately with Outnumbered’s female hosts when he said, “I’m employer of a lot of people. If you adjust for amount of uninterrupted time spent in the work place, women make more than men in almost every category.”
“Go try and hire a male journalist. You can’t find any!” he added.
After feeling the heat from his colleagues, Carlson protested that he was “pro-women.”
