Fox News, Sexual Harassment, Ailes, O'Reilly, Hannity and minions...

Recommended Posts

According to papers obtained by PEOPLE, Carlson is alleging that her former employer "Ailes has unlawfully retaliated against Carlson and sabotaged her career because she refused sexual advances and complained about severe and pervasive sexual harassment."

Carlson, now 50, claims the biggest former of Ailes' retaliation was her firing from Fox News on June 23, nine months after he allegedly "ostracizing, marginalizing and shunning" the Real Story anchor before suggesting she engage in a sexual relationship with him.

Also under fire in Carlson's filing is former Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy, whom Carlson claims "regularly treat[ed] her in a sexist and condescending way" when they worked together and "engaged in a pattern and practice of severe and pervasive sexual harassment" that was tantamount to treating her as "a blond female prop."

This is kind of like the Iran Iraq war - hoping for maximum destruction on both sides but I don't care much who wins.

Steve Doocy will be acquitted.   He cannot possibly have engaged in an intentional pattern of sexual harassment.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He's way too stupid to form any coherent intentions about anything.

So your job every day is to lie and spread division and destabilize the country.

(A job you were hired to do by the pig who surprisingly acted like a pig.)

 

 

 

Nope,, sympathy isn't coming.

Times like these are when I wish our society allowed trial by combat.  I think should could take him.

If Fox News has taught me anything, then Gretchen wouldn't have been harassed if she didn't dress the way she did.

Have you ever read his book on marital advice?  Someone gave that to me, I think it was a joke.

Is that one of those books where it pretty much tells the wife to do everything the husband says?  My anniversary is coming up and I need to get my wife something.

Actually, the opposite, if you note the parentheses at the top.  Basically your standard trope of memories, analogies, jokes about how women should always get their way, and mindless crap.

 

As to the below, since I can't get the cursor below the second quote, I wound up re-gifting it to a friend who got married years later.  Told him up front too.  It's my hope that that copy of the book is on its 7th or 8th owner by this point.

 

Lol. I can't believe someone gave this to you.

Steve Doocy is Kierkegaard compared to Brian Kilmeade.

I'm thinking she never read her job description.

Well he obviously didn't hire her for her brains. I always figured she got the job because the moderately hot blonde they had on there before just didn't get angry enough. Gotta produce that psychotic outrage everytime a business says Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas!

Carlson is actually really smart. Was her high schools valedictorian and graduated from Stanford. Even studied abroad at Oxford.

To be fair, her childhood nanny was Michelle Bachmann so maybe that's where she inherited the mouth breathing idiot syndrome.

Of all places to crack blonde jokes, FoxNews may be the worst choice outside of the frozen and terrible lands of the nords.

That's the thing... she's supposed to be smart... but then you watch her and it's like what the hell happened?

 

Same thing with Megan Kelly... when she was doing spot duty on the O'Reilly in the beginning she was awesome. Smart, reasonable, stuck to the facts. As her spot grew, she got worse and worse, and now she has her own show and it's unwatchable. In addition to her entire presence being dumbed down, it just feels like she's yelling at you the whole time.

 

It's a damn shame that they don't try to aspire to intelligent discussion. They have plenty of smart people there and they spend their time sounding like idiots.

They know their audience.   And they are extremely successful.

I know some pretty smart people that watch that station religiously.

 

For some reason politics makes people act/think like that, even if they otherwise are reasonable and intelligent.
