A day after releasing audio of Tucker Carlson making numerous misogynist remarks, Media Matters for America published a new video with clips of the Fox News host using racist and homophobic language to describe Iraqi people, African Americans, gay people and immigrants while speaking on a radio program between 2006 and 2011, according to a report published Tuesday by the nonprofit.

The self-described watchdog of "conservative misinformation in the U.S. media" published the audio from Carlson's appearances on a Tampa-based radio program, the "Bubba the Love Sponge Show," just 25 hours after releasing similar recordings in which he's heard flippantly using sexist language to express his views on child rape, rape shield laws, underage marriage and other sensitive topics.

The new audio highlights about a dozen instances of Carlson using racist language on the "shock jock" show, which he apparently called into for about an hour per week. In 2008, Carlson lamented that "everyone's embarrassed to be a white man," before stating that white men deserve credit for "creating civilization and stuff."
