You're really not being honest when you say he was trying to "defend" arranged marriage between teenage girls and grown men. The case in question involved a 27 year old man and a 16 year old girl. Sixteen is the age of consent in much of the country. Now, if some 27 year old was sniffing around my 16 year old daughter, I'd give him what-for. I'm not saying everyone should be on board with it, but neither was Tucker. He was just pointing out that there's a difference between statutory rape in the context of a marriage and violent rape.

I also agree that the current system of allowing anonymous accusations of rape can be abused. That shouldn't even be arguable given the several cases of high-profile rape hoaxes in recent years. It's not that I want to expose those making the accusation, but the person being accused should have more protections until credible evidence can be gathered. The mere accusation of rape is a devastating and permanent indictment of a person, no matter whether that person's guilty or innocent (or somewhere in between).

By the way, when the article you linked to goes to Michael Avenatti for his comment (called Tucker a "complete dirtbag") then I'm going to conclude that it's little more than a hit piece.

I don't care about Michael Avenatti's comments, I care about Carlson's.  His quotes are provided and I didn't read any of the editorials.  He was absolutely fine saying that grabbing women off the street and raping them are worse, because proportionality is important and something liberals have no sense of, but you and I both know he started to dig a much deeper hole after he said that and his entire point was to defend creepy older men lusting after teenagers.  As you read deeper, it becomes more clear.  By the time he's talking about wanting to see teenage girls fuck ("pretty icky" might be an understatement) he had gone off the rails and you know it.  You don't say something like that in public (even in 2009, which isn't exactly 1869) unless your private thoughts regarding teenage girls are pretty fucked up.  And Bubba the Love Sponge is hardly a paragon of virtue, so when he stops joking around and starts saying that you're going too far, then you've gone too far. 

Just the boarding school fantasies about his daughter's friends is really the only quote you need.  There's no defending that one so give it up.  Now look at yourself in the mirror and admit that if Bill Clinton said that, your head would fucking explode and you'd be screaming about secret trips to pedofile islands or something.
