Fair and balanced… as long as you’re a man…
It’s been nearly a month since FOX News CEO Roger Ailes was forced to resign after more than a dozen women accused him of sexual assault, and yet we’re still learning new details about sexism in the company.
According to her lawsuit, Andrea was demoted from her coveted 5 p.m. spot on The Five to the lesser-rated Outnumbered after refusing to show off her butt for Roger… and new co-president Bill Shine allegedly even told her to drop the case!
However, that code of silence went away in April when she was suspiciously let go from the company for breaking her contract (AKA releasing a book).
While the Republican political analyst didn’t reference O’Reilly’s instances of abuse directly in her lawsuit, she did name him as one of Roger’s co-conspirators, saying:
“FOX News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny. Ailes did not act alone. He may have been the primary culprit, but his actions were condoned by his most senior lieutenants, who engaged in a concerted effort to silence Tantaros by threats, humiliation, and retaliation.”
We guess we know what he’s up to when he’s not busy defending slavery…
We’re just glad Andrea, Gretchen Carlson, and all the other victims were brave enough to speak out!
Do U think this will hurt FOX News? Or is it to be expected at this point??
