Former Fox News Anchors’ Sexual Harassment Claims Depict Fox Founder Roger Ailes As The Thirstiest Man On The Planet

Fox News is the midst of a tornado of sexual harassment allegations by former Fox News anchors who have reported repeated, predatory sexual advances from Fox News founder, Roger Ailes, a married man.

Former Miss America USA, Gretchen Carlson, accused 76-year-old Ailes of “ostracizing, marginalizing, and shunning” her in the workplace – something the Fox News chairman purportedly alluded would stop if Carlson agreed to have sex with him.

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros recently filed a lawsuit for a cool $50 million with the New York State Supreme Court accusing former CEO Roger Ailes and current host Bill O’Reilly of making unprovoked and unwanted sexual advances on her.

“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,” Ms. Tantaros’s suit says.

Tantaros, 37, joined Fox back in 2010 and a year later became the c0-host of “The Five.” She claims that several Fox executive urged her not to wear pants during shooting because “Roger [Ailes] wants to see your legs.”

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
