#WITW panelist gives Fox News host Tucker Carlson a new nickname after watching clip of him berating reporter

By WITW Staff on April 7, 2017

In the Designing Disruption panel on the third and final day of the 2017 Women in the World New York Summit, five female titans of industry talked about how to achieve success — and break the patriarchy. They also watched an explosive clip of Fox News host Tucker Carlson berating Lauren Duca over a column she wrote about Donald Trump about a month after the election. Watch in the video above. After seeing it, the women are all but speechless — except for Australian author Kathy Lette, who was the moderator of the panel. “That’s why we call him f**ker … yeah,” she quipped, modifying the TV host’s first name. The audience burst into laughter, and then a round of applause. Watch it all above, and see the panel in its entirety here.
