Tucker Carlson: Men Are Suffering In The Workplace, Not Women

"Outnumbered" stuck true to its name on Thursday when host Tucker Carlson found himself in a heated one vs. four debate over gender inequality in the workplace.

The discussion was about allegations that Jill Abramson, the New York Times executive editor who was ousted this week, was being paid significantly less than her male predecessor.

Carlson called it the "greatest story ever" and laughed off the existence of a gender pay gap.

"This idea that women are suffering, that's just ridiculous!" he said. "Men are suffering."

Needless to say, his four female co-hosts did not respond well. One co-host pointed to a recent study by Indiana University, which found that female journalists made 82 cents for every $1 that male journalists made in 2012, and added that about 63 percent of all journalists are men.

"That's just silly," Carlson shot back. "If you adjust for the amount of uninterrupted time people spend in the workplace, women make more than men in almost every category."

"Go try and hire a male journalist," he said. "You can’t find any!"
