Gretchen Carlson Sues Fox News For Sexual Harassment

Gretchen Carlson Sues Fox News For Sexual Harassment

Former Fox host, Gretchen Carlson, is suing Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. Now other anonymous stories are surfacing that match Carlson’s claims. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“WASHINGTON ― Some Fox News on-air personalities are unsurprised by the news that former host Gretchen Carlson has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes.

“We thought it would happen after she was taken off of ‘Fox & Friends,’” said one Fox News source who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation. “She kept quiet because Roger gave her the afternoon show, but everyone at Fox knew it was eventually coming. He hated her and would tell people that she was ‘a crazy, vindictive bitch.’”

Other sources inside Fox confirmed that Carlson had first threatened to file the lawsuit after Ailes removed her as a host of “Fox & Friends.” But sources say Carlson held off on filing a suit when Ailes agreed to give her the afternoon show.

Carlson was a host of the popular “Fox & Friends” morning program from 2006 until 2013, but was allegedly removed from the show after complaining about her male co-host Steve Doocy. (Disclosure: I was a Fox News contributor from 2014 to 2015.)”

    FoxNews goes after Bill Clinton for a sexual affair yet leave Bob Barr, Bob
    Livingston, Newt Gingrich, Henry Hyde, Mark Sanford,David Vitter alone.
    They did the exact same thing that’s okay. They lied and covered every lie
    the Bush administration pushed. They have amnesia when it comes to Reagan
    and Bush and Republicans. Everyone else is fair game to slander and spout
    of all talk. Gretchen I actually feel bad for you with all the shit that’s
    headed your way. Karma’s a bitch.

    *You mean to tell me they didn’t know what they were signing up for?
    Really? For Pete’s sake, has anyone seen the nude photos leaked of Megan
    Kelly? When you go sign up for a sexist organization, you should expect
    that these things will happen. Doesn’t make it right, but expect for it to
    happen. The real question is why did Carlson sell out by seeking employment
    at this place to be used in that manner. Welcome to the New World Order of
    hypocrisy. “Your wardrobe today will be the tightest, shortest, lowest cut
    red skirt we can squeeze you into, but don’t expect any sexual comments.
    This is an insult to the intelligence of every single REAL woman out there.*

    Carlson went along with the program until Hasselbeck took her seat between
    tweetledum and dumber. She knew the culture at Fox on and off the air is
    fake….boo hoo for you.

  6. Jim Doe says:

    Roger Ailes is scum, that’s a no brainer. But what of Gretchen Carlson, who
    literally made a career out of publicly presenting herself as a sex object
    to sexually frustrated Republican men? This story is disturbing in more
    ways than one.

  7. Acting4Actors says:

    Wow what is going on in 2016? Are the hybrids rebelling against their
    masters? Normally the women would just sleep with him and take the deal and
    never speak about it again. The beginning already started, the truth cannot
    be stopped. Soon the elites give themselves up, soon the Creator takes back
    his souls.

    Family Values?

  9. SenatorAwesomesauce says:

    This is kind of random, but exactly how do you not get annoyed by the men
    that host shows on Fox News?

    Here comes Roger and his team of 800 Harvard lawyers before the judge he
    plays golf with. And here is Gretchen with her one.

    carlson was getting too old and unattractive. it was time for her to go.
    there are plenty of other young, blonde bimbos who can replace her. that is
    just the nature of the business. the suit is just sour grapes that will end
    in a small settlement. case closed.

  16. Bruce Aitken says:

    OR he could pay off the federal prosecutor like Trump did. After all, FOX
    has a lot more money than Trump ever did.

  17. Jim Marcum says:

    she entertained viewers every morning with bare legged beaver shots from
    the Faux News Couch.

  18. TheyKNOWandYOUdont says:

    I read the complaint about Steve Doocey….doesn’t sound like he did
    anything to her in a sexual nature….He just didn’t like her….big deal
    get over it.

    Fox News is the ONLY “media outlet” that routinely exhibits inappropriate
    behavior on a consistent basis.
    It’s very clear that Fox News has standards for what type of women they
    want on their network. They are always white, blond and obviously christian
    conservative loyalists who are never to question the behavior or comments
    made by the old, white men at Fox News.
    Carlson is either incredibly stupid, or simply did what all other
    conservative women do, which is to go along with the program. She shouldn’t
    be surprised that someone at Fox News would exhibit such behavior.
    I bet every single Fox News female employee has had to sleep wit either
    Ailes or Murdoch or BOTH, except for Greta Van Susteren.

    Thanks TYT for exposing how corporations “play ball”. The best way to
    counter this is to document the day and time these things were said, and
    who was present to witness those comments.
