  • Sarah Palin's treatment at Fox News: Ailes called her 'hot', Wallace hoped she would sit in his lap

    CNN ^ | 04/23/2017
    As Fox News continues to reel from the summary dismissal of its top star Bill O'Reilly this week and its creator, Roger Ailes earlier this year, a lot of attention has been given to women who worked there and whether they experienced any sort of harassment. There was a very interesting exchange between Jake Tapper and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during his interview with her on The Lead Thursday. Tapper asked, directly, what she experienced during her time working there as a commentator. Palin, who left the network in June of 2015, didn't elaborate about her personal experiences, but...
  • Steve Bannon Once Told Roger Ailes That Megyn Kelly Was "The Devil"

    "I told him then, I said, ‘She’s the devil, and she will turn on you,'" the Trump strategist reportedly said of Kelly. President Donald Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has opened up about the rift between his political website Breitbart and Fox News — and he blames Megyn Kelly. In a recent interview with Politico, Bannon said, "The big rift between Breitbart and Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop.” Kelly, who has since departed Fox News despite an enormous offer from the network, made headlines when she accused then-CEO Roger Ailes of sexual harassment...
  • The tragedy of Bill O’Reilly

    American Thinker ^ | 04/19/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    The original definition of tragedy, dating from the classical Greeks, depends upon a fatal flaw. That is why Bill O’Reilly’s departure from Fox News qualifies as “tragic,” even though there are many collateral victims as well, starting with conservatives who are losing a gutsy interrogator unafraid of the stature or political correctness of his interview subjects. As I read the complaints against O’Reilly, it sounds as if he was alleged to have been behaving like a character out Mad Men, the soap opera about a Madison Avenue ad agency in the 1960s. Bill seems to have been old school in...

    Julie Roginsky filed a complaint with the Supreme Court of the State of New York in the County of New York on Monday claiming that she was sexually harassed by former CEO Roger Ailes during her time at the network and refused a promised promotion when she turned down his sexual advances. She began working as a contributor for the network back in 2011, and things went fine until in 2015 Ailes began asking her to meet in private where he would ask her personal questions about her love and sex life according to the complaint. The court filing claims...

    Shepard Smith has come out as a gay man in a new interview. The popular Fox News anchor, who has been with the network since it first launched 20 years ago, spoke about his sexuality in an interview with Huffington Post. Smith, 52, confirmed the long-circulating rumor when he was asked if it was former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes who prevented him from coming out of the closet. 'That's not true. He was as nice as he could be to me. I loved him like a father,' Smith said of Ailes. The 'love' Smith had for his old boss...

    Andrea Tantaros gave her first interview since filing a sexual harassment suit in August against Fox News, former CEO Roger Ailes and a number of high-ranking executives at the network. The former host of The Five and Outnumbered sat down with Amy Robach on Good Morning America to talk about why she filed her lawsuit, and explain why she later turned down a seven-figure settlement from the network. Tantaros explained that she refused the money because of what was required of her if she agreed to the terms. 'They wanted to guarantee my eternal silence which was never going to...

    Roger Ailes shouldn't be allowed to advise Donald Trump and Fox News simultaneously, says one Clinton ally. A close ally of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is calling for the Commission on Presidential Debates to pull Fox News anchor Chris Wallace from his role as a moderator of the final debate in October, citing a conflict of interest. David Brock, a Clinton ally who founded the pro-Clinton super PACs Correct the Record and American Bridge 21st Century, wrote in a letter to the commission obtained by Politico that Wallace has a conflict of interest because former Fox News CEO Roger...

    From morning into the late afternoon, all the "anchors" and all the "message" from FOX News cable is nothing but a non-stop attack on Trump, misrepresentation of Trump, lies from Hillary talking points from Trump, guests who are only there to attack Trump, only the negative polls but never the positive polls about Trump, and it is clear as a gun site what these POS's are, they are nothing but the disgusting creeps and losers of the Jeb Bush wing of the Republican establishment that really has one agenda and that is the globalist cheap labor agenda and open borders...

    Just hours after it was announced that Fox News would be paying $20million to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit with Gretchen Carlson, the former network anchor hired a major celebrity publicist to craft her second career. Carlson has hired Cindi Berger of PMK*BNC to handle all aspects of her personal public relations, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The company told HR that the next phase in Carlson's career will 'include a television presence, penning a book, speaking engagements and philanthropy'. Berger has previously represented Lena Dunham, Barbara Walters, Robert Redford and Rosie O'Donnell.

    According to new reports, Greta Van Susteren did not leave her show on Fox News willingly but was abruptly forced out by CEO Murdoch. Money.cnn.com reported: A sharp knock on the door signaled that Greta Van Susteren's time on Fox News Channel was over. A courier arrived at Van Susteren's Washington, D.C. home at 9 a.m. Tuesday, hand-delivering two letters that said that Van Susteren "was being taken off the air" immediately, according to her husband, John Coale, who is a high-profile Washington lawyer. Van Susteren was already planning to leave, but she thought she would be hosting her 7...

    In the wake of today’s surprise news that Greta Van Susteren had exited Fox News Channel effective immediately, chatter turned to whether it might be the start of a “key man” exodus. Like Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Bret Baier have “key man” clauses in their contracts that allow them to leave if Fox News chief Roger Ailes departed. Van Susteren very publicly expressed her support for Ailes after Carlson filed her suit, for which Van Susteren took heat in some quarters. But other Key Man club members did as well. Hannity, for instance, wondered, via Twitter: “So...

    In an extensive article within New York Magazine, mostly outlining the rather sordid details of Roger Ailes, readers may also note specific confirmation of something we outlined in August of last year (2015). Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch instructed Fox News executives to take down Donald Trump. (NY MAG) […] Murdoch was not a fan of Trump’s and especially did not like his stance on immigration. (The antipathy was mutual: “Murdoch’s been very bad to me,” Trump told me in March.) A few days before the first GOP debate on Fox in August 2015, Murdoch called Ailes at home. “This...

    Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson secretly recorded inappropriate statements made by former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, New York Magazine reported Friday. Carlson recorded conversations with Ailes for at least a year and captured "numerous incidents" of harassment on her phone, the report said. "I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago, and then you'd be good and better and I'd be good and better," one recording of Ailes speaking to Carlson reportedly says. "Sometimes problems are easier to solve that way," Ailes, 76, allegedly also told Carlson, 50, at...

    Former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes will prepare Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for the presidential debates, according to a Tuesday report in The New York Times. The Times reported that Ailes had transitioned almost immediately from his role as CEO into a new, informal job advising Trump as he prepares for the first presidential debate on September 26. The former Fox News chief made a name for himself in politics as a Republican communications adviser who helped prepare past presidential candidates including George H.W. Bush. Ailes resigned from Fox News amid an ongoing internal investigation into his...
