Telling Carlson that she was “sexy” but “too much hard work.”
I feel like this guy (and all guys like him) can be summed up by that one claim. Your value to me as a woman is a sexual, and you’re hot, but apparently also intelligent and have standards. Which means I can’t just fuck you and dismiss you when and how I please. I actually have to view you as a whole person and I don’t want to, so I’ll just sexually objectify you and make your life hell—just so you know your place.
If true, I hope this guys gets DESTROYYYEEDDD
it’s an insight into our meritocracy
He even looks trustworthy and totally non sleazy, right? I mean, look at this guy cosplaying Jabba The Hutt in the workplace and women get uppity with him. He is just a poor misunderstood soul.
Notice its against Ailes personally, and not her employer, Fox News? That’s a very pointed thing. The complaint also makes it a point to say Ailes was not advancing the interests of Fox News and was not acting in his proper official capacity. This allegation would deny him indemnification from Fox News and leave him alone, slolely dangling from the hook. This is designed to make Fox News adversarial to Ailes in the defense of this suit, and I bet its a strategy based on the knowledge that Murdock's son, who is now in charge of Fox News, does not like Ailes.
So Fox News is exactly behind the scenes how we imagined it would be. Shitty people running a shitty network.
The part about Steve Doocy is exactly how I figured Steve Doocy to be.
If these allegations are true, then Roger Ailes is just as reprehensible as his long history of intimidation and paranoia would suggest and I hope she soaks him for all she is legally entitled to. Having said that, given that she made her fortune playing dumb in service of an overtly hateful news organization that feeds off its viewers worst fears and actively belittles any attempt to acknowledge that this behavior exists and is a problem, it would be equally sweet justice if she were to get nothing.
He “refused to provide her with anywhere near the level of network media support and promotion provided to other Fox News hosts who did not complain about harassment and rebuff his sexual advances.”
Gasp! I wonder if she will name names. So Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly all slept with Roger?
