The drama and intrigue at Fox News crested to a shocking new high Friday when information was unveiled regarding the lawsuit former “Fox & Friends” co-anchor Gretchen Carlson filed earlier this year against former network CEO Roger Ailes.
“Beginning in 2014, according to a person familiar with the lawsuit, Carlson brought her iPhone to meetings in Ailes’s office and secretly recorded him saying the kinds of things he’d been saying to her all along,” reportedNew York Magazine contributing editor Gabriel Sherman.
If true, this meant that concrete evidence existed to prove that Ailes did indeed sexually harass Gretchen. And if he harassed her, then it stands to reason he may also have also harassed other women who have made similar allegations against the former CEO.
“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 of the recordings reportedly featured Ailes saying to Gretchen.
“Sometimes problems are easier to solve that way,” Ailes allegedly also told her during another recording.
Incidentally, these words allegedly spoken by the disgraced executive resembled statements that former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros has accused him of uttering.
Specifically, she claimed that he once asked her to turn around for her, and that he also made remarked regarding how she might look in a bikini.
“It was common knowledge at Fox that Ailes frequently made inappropriate comments to women in private meetings and asked them to twirl around so he could examine their figures; and there were persistent rumors that Ailes propositioned female employees for sexual favors,” Sherman claimed.
The man has already lost his longtime position as the CEO of the most powerful news network in America — but judging by the drip, drip, drip of this kinds of incriminating evidence, he may soon see his reputation destroyed as well.
